lose fat not muscle
If you're an athlete, it's really important to make sure you get enough protein. If you don't, you will lose muscle and your performance will suffer.

If Jennifer Lopez can lose 20 pounds, so can we
When we do it, we do it on our own. When a wealthy celebrity does it, they hire a team of private chefs, nutritionist, and trainers to help them reach their goals. And they have an incentive of contracts that may be worth millions of dollars.

Plateau BUSTED!
What online calculators and formulas often fail to take into account is that the fat you carry requires very few calories to maintain it, unlike maintenance of muscle. So if you are 100 pounds overweight, eating to a small deficit calculated from a theoretical BMR based on your weight alone (rather than your ideal body weight) may result in losing no weight or even gaining. Your BMR is more closely related to your ideal body weight than it is to your actual scale weight, if you are significantly obese. Of course calories count. There are many strategies to create that deficit. The goal is to find one that works for you and leaves you in a place that makes maintenance easier.

Why would you eat nuts?
[quote=kenni_z][quote=eKatheri... to eKatherine's point, I'm sure that people who are in a position to buy SNACK FOODS that are upwards of $5/pound are most certainly healthier because they're economically better off than those who can't afford food that's that expensive.[/quote] Nobody is standing there pointing a gun at you making you eat a pound of almonds at a sitting. If you think you can't afford to buy "snack foods" that cost $.43 a serving, you are probably basing your diet decisions and food purchases on criteria that are working against you. For what it's worth, I don't eat "snacks", and certainly not "snack foods". I eat meals. [/quote] ...are things getting heated? Lol. Look Kathy, all I was saying is that people with more money are healthier, and people with more money are more likely to buy nuts. Are you SERIOUSLY getting defensive about nuts? That...nuts! (:lol: , gotta love cheesy puns)[/quote] Is there someone here named "Kathy"? It's true that people who have more money have access to a greater variety of healthy foods. People who have less money have to shop smarter. They have to do their own cooking if they want to eat healthy foods. They can't buy expensive vegetables like asparagus. They end up eating carrots, potatoes, cabbage, and whatever's on sale. Rich people and poor people alike can choose to eat garbage processed foods. If you want to stay on a food budget and eat healthy, you have to look beyond "price per pound" to value. Look at calories and nutrition. Go beyond the 80's sound bite that "fat makes you fat". You eat tiny meals and then have to eat lots of snacks. Consider eating bigger meals so you don't need all that "snack food". Considering that you started a thread saying nobody should ever eat nuts, who's getting defensive?

Armour, Synthroid, a bad doctor, and weight gain.
[quote=corifeo]Correlation does not imply causation, am going to tell you a secret there is no medicine that makes you gain fat out there none, just like there is no medicine that helps you lose fat none. This is something that bodybuilder already know. What a medicine can do is increases or decreases your hydration level and to a much smaller effect increases or decreases your absorption rate or “metabolic rate”. Both armour and synthroid primarily regulate your hydration levels mostly. There is evidence that Armour is better than Synthroid but that is really up to you and your specialist. So back to your question will it just come off that would depends on what it is fat or hydration. If its fat the answer is no, if its hydration then maybe. [/quote] This is not true. The thyroid plays a complex role in weight maintenance and fat storage. This has nothing to do with water weight.

binges... help!
260 calories is a mistake, not a "binge". Your goal should be to develop lifelong sustainable eating habits and a healthy relationship with food, not lose weight as quickly as possible with no concern about crashing and burning.

Fermented Soy versus Non-fermented Soy
The Okinawan diet is more like Chinese food than like what traditional Japanese eat. They eat lots of pork and vegetables year round, as the area is more tropical. The Japanese government is trying to get people who eat the traditional Japanese diet of miso soup, white rice, and pickles to eat more meat and fresh vegetables as Okinawans do. They don't eat huge amounts of soy products in any part of Japan, rather modest quantities. Soy should be consumed in moderation. It is not a miracle food.

Shirataki noodles & rice
Real shirataki noodles, the clear ones, have a springy texture and an odd fishy taste to them. You might not like them if you're not into Japanese food. I like them, but I don't think they go with western pasta sauces or in dishes you might normally put noodles or other pastas.

Why would you eat nuts?
Studies show that people who eat nuts are healthier (and sometimes thinner) than those who don't. Everybody's got to decide for themselves what works. But starting from the sound bite "fat is evil/fat makes you fat" has resulted in a lot of people avoiding a lot of food that is healthy for them, instead eating processed foods packed with sugar.

Garcinia Cambogia
[quote=legoyzueta]Hah! And how many of the 1000 s of these things out there have we personally tried? I was looking at a book that had a cd about hypnotizing yourself to thinking you actually had a lap band. Actually thought about getting it, and then...magic...I stopped and looked at myself. Kick in the rear time... [/quote] Hypnosis has a better chance of helping you than garcinia cambogia.

So I'm poor....
You can eat well on a budget if you're willing and able to shop and cook everything from scratch. People who don't know how to cook, don't live near good supermarkets, and work multiple jobs don't stand a chance of eating healthy.

How accurate is Fatsecret's RDI estimate/calculation?
Even if it's off on average, everybody's got a different metabolic rate. So if you're losing slower than you think you should be, or you're losing so fast you're hungry and would like to eat more, just adjust it.

Dieting is good for the budget when you're poor. You end up eating a lot less, and you eat boring things more often.

Needing Support
Don't kid yourself that weight loss surgery will make it easier. Not only are there serious complications, but you have to stay on a diet forever then. And it's just as hard staying on that diet after the surgery. Most people who have the surgery do not get down to their ideal body weight, and many gain it all back. Start by changing your way of eating. Your goal is to eliminate processed foods and eat whole natural foods. Then begin to cut back. Find your triggers and figure out how to deal with them. There is a huge weight loss industry in this country that wants people to feel helpless to help themselves, and surgeons are part of this, too.

What are 3 snacks under 100 calories w/ more protein than carbs?
It's all about portion control. Any food that has more protein than carbs can be weighed or measured out in a 100 calorie serving by you. There is no need to pay some corporation to do it for you. Think leftover meat, fish, cheese, eggs.

Percentages of protein, fats and carbs
Your protein requirements depend on yourself and your activity level. No matter how many calories you set as your goal, your body's protein requirements will not change much. So I set a target in grams, and then divide up the remaining calories between fat and carbs. Right now I am balancing fat and carb calories about equally. That used to be considered moderate. Now recommendations are to eat 45-65% of calories as carbs, and that would be considered "low carb". But you'll have to find what works for you.

Screw the Diet: Just Eat Real Food!
[quote=buttercup30]Here is what you do. You clip coupons for everything. The money you save on everything you used a coupon on you can use to buy real food. Chicken is not very expensive. Frozen veggies are just as nutritious as fresh, and more nutritious than canned. Watch you local sales circulars for the best deals.[/quote] Spend the money on real food. Manufacturer's coupons are used to market processed foods that are overpriced no matter what they cost.
