Just saying hi
Hey David - Welcome!! Whole foods is a great place to start. I have an adult daughter who is vegan (for the last 3+ years) - so if you don't find others here who can help - send me any questions and I will ask her for you.. and get back to you. - Changing one's life for better health - TOTALLY WORTH IT!

For those of you on Low-Carb diets
that is totally your opinion - and you're certainly entitled to it. I just do not agree with you. And found your offering of your opinion to be rude and condescending. But that's just me - floating back into the clouds now!

Rick - the only MIM I know about is: A MIM (Muffin in a Minute) -a low-carb, high -fiber, Induction-friendly delight that you can microwave in a coffee cup. Note: All of these recipes use flaxmeal, which is ground flaxseed. - I don't know if this person was doing something else, or if you misunderstood - I will go back and re-read her initial entry. My apologies if she is eating cake and you were just trying to help her.

Groups - Anyone in One?
I joined LCHF (Low Carb High Fat) - not sure how active that one is either.

Groups - Anyone in One?
Liz - are you in a 'group' called Low Carb - or are you just saying you are following low carb? - This site has the ability to have smaller 'focused' groups - but they don't seem to be utilized that much anymore.

Groups - Anyone in One?
Are there any active groups here on FS? Way back when - we had a great low carb group going - and I am just curious if there are any consistent groups of support going? or just people checking in on their buddies journals and reading a few posts (like this one)??

Rick - if you have something positive and constructive to offer - by all means - but when you need to belittle others to make yourself look smart - you only look small. Troll on...

One Year Anniversary
Bella: "I will eat what I love and love what I eat but always remember food is for satiating hunger, not replacing emotions." If this cost you a YEAR and 100+lbs to learn... so be it! Well done, my friend! What an amazing journey we are all on, and one we all feel privileged to share with YOU! Thank you for your inspiration! Congrats on such an amazing year!!!

Why “Clean Eating” is a Myth
The above article: "If your diet has enough satiating power to keep you satisfied and happy, then there’s nothing wrong with also consuming some less-filling indulgences." AMEN!!! There is a light at the end of the tunnel...afterall! LOL! And just to be clear - an 'indulgence' is a choice. They have never 'cost me' anything in regards to my weightloss, or maintenance. My bad choices of neglecting to stay present - to give up - to go back to old habits and old ways - to stop exercising - to indulge my negative, depressed and grieving life... that cost me about 6 months of hard work! It's all good - getting back to basics... including the occasional indulgence!

List your twelve best "tips" that have worked for you to lose the weight
The 12 best ‘Tips’ that worked for me :) (Great Forum idea Jeff)... 1. Getting plugged in to FS !! 2. Track my intake daily 3. Be specific – PLAN your ‘Work’ (Nutritionally/Exercise) 4. Follow said plan – WORK your ‘Plan’ 5. Commit – (If you don’t like what YOU have committed to – then change it…We’ve all seen the guy who lost weight eating Twinkies! – and remember, I didn’t commit you to your way of eating…you did.) 6. Educate yourself – Learn something new (one thing) everyday. 7. Reach out for Help 8. Consistent - Be honest (with yourself and others trying to help you) 9. Implement only ONE change at a time – long enough to see if it makes a difference. 10. Evaluate 11. Use #2 to play ‘Detective’ when experiencing problems/stalls/etc. 12. Pay it Forward – (Network what is working for you on FS, so others can learn about ‘successful’ habits, plans, choices, etc.) ***If you are new, and reading this forum topic - please reach out to people ... there are soooo many helpful and knowledgeable people here that 'someone' is bound to know a few pointers to get you headed in the right direction.***

10 Things You Need to Know About Losing Weight
I wasn't suggesting that offering what has...or has not...worked for anyone isn't helpful. Of course it is. But this thread started with the 10 things you need to know... and then those ten were presented as if they were facts. While I am happy for people when they find what works for them, and even happier when as a community we share that info w/ each other... I didn't much care for the 'documentary vs. scientific proof' dialogue that followed. My whole point is that for some...those ten things don't apply. Ten different things will apply. And YES I would hope you do continue to offer your opinions to everyone here. I would hope everyone would contribute to the conversations... But do we have to prove everything - can we just express what has worked or not, and why we think such and such... without it becoming a thread about 'facts'... that are really opinions to start with. just sayin'.. not trying to be rude, or argumentative... just my opinion.

10 Things You Need to Know About Losing Weight
This thread started w/ "10 Things I need to know about losing weight"... and I'm just sayin'... these are not ten things that have helped me be successful in my journey. And while you may not know me from Adam, I have been on this site for 3 1/2 yrs... have lost 70 lbs, maintained that loss successfully - suffered a major tragedy in my life... regained some.. and am now currently losing again. If you want to put your fork down between bites to slow yourself - by all means - go for it. But can we stop posting OPINIONS as if they are FACT? How about asking people what has worked for them? - There's a thread that if I was a 'newbie' - I would WANT to read. But then each time a low-carb'er and a calorie counter get together in the same forum... it becomes - combative, insulting, argumentative. Which to me is totally unnecessary. Mutual respect would go a long way towards a healthy exchange of ideas, motivation and information.

10 Things You Need to Know About Losing Weight
[quote=mrspackrat] "1. Don't skip meals- [i]I skip meals almost every day.[/i] 2. Change your Plate size from 12" to 10"- [i]Never did this.[/i] 3. Count your calories- [i]Didn't work for me.[/i] 4. Don't blame your metabolism- [i]Well, I'm not going to blame my husband's! LOL! Of course my 'metabolism' (good, bad or indifferent) - has something to do w/ it![/i] 5. Eat protein- [i]Ok, now we're getting somewhere! Lean? No, not so much![/i] 6. Soup keeps you fuller longer - [i]Not me![/i] 7. The wider the choice the more you eat- [i]What!? I disagree. Has never been my experience.[/i] 8. Low-fat dairy helps you excrete more fat - [i]Wouldn't eat low-fat anything - if you paid me. Wonder if this works w/ full fat dairy? [/i] 9. Exercise goes on burning fat even while you sleep-our bodys use carbs - [i]I think I need a nap![/i] 10. Keep moving and you lose weight- [i]You've just got to joking![/i][/quote] I am just one person. With one experience. Take it for what that's worth!!! I personally, do not care about documentaries - studies - scientific research protocols, etc... You know what I did care about when I started this journey?? Losing weight! And what bugs me about this kind of thread - is 1.) It's misleading to the 'newbie' - implying if they follow these common sense, scientific, or whatever - tips!!! - they'll be on the right track to losing. 2.) Any "one" of these tips could be discussed in excruciating detail - but it won't change this REALITY - You will need to put it into practice in your own 'dietary way of eating' to see how it applies to YOU! Unless of course 100% of the people got 100% of the same results with each and every tip. 3.) There seems to be an unnecessary 'tone' w/ the back and forth - including my own now... and so I apologize in advance for offending WhOmEvEr I just offended.

Help!!!
Hey - Calorie Counters...HELP!!!
by jsfantome (submitted 3 years ago)
Help!!!
Hey Byron11 - Welcome to FS!!! I am no calorie counting expert - but I am going to take a stab at your question. Don't worry, there are others here with a lot more knowledge than me... and they will respond too! :) Took a peek at your food journals... 1. Your RDI (recommended daily intake) noted at the bottom of an individual day's record is 1325calories - You need to eat - EAT - your calories. You are not helping yourself by staying under that amount. I would guess that may even be a bit low - but either way - LESS is not MORE weight loss. 2. Carbs are about 70% of your intake. Try to reduce this to around 50% - While increasing your protein and healthy fat intake. (your healthy fats are very low.) 3. Again, while seeming counter-intuitive, you may want to alternate your workouts to an every other day schedule to see if that gives enough time for your system to recover - and still promote weight LOSS. What I do know - is that ASKING FOR HELP when you get stuck like this ... is the BEST thing for figuring out how to get where you want to go!!! So hang on... I am sure help is on the way :)

Weight loss for overweight children
Hey Keld, just curious...how goes this student? Still working at it?

Help! I don't know what I'm doing wrong!
[quote=DiscordOfSound]"I've been on Atkin's Induction for a little over four weeks now. I've been sticking to it religiously." [/quote] I hate to be the bearer of bad news but you've missed some of the keys to Induction. While both cheese (2-4oz) and cream (1-3tbsp) are allowed, they are User Beware items. Some people tolerate better than others. Nuts, are not an induction item. Neither is Alcohol. It will in fact halt the fat burning process until everything has finished being filtered out of the liver. Then it can take 2-14 days to get back to Fat Burning again. The sunflower seeds are not on the induction list either, and while I understand your use of them - the sodium from them are doing a number on you I am sure. The diet sodas (or artificial ingredients of any kind) are very difficult for the body while eating low carb. Again, some can tolerate one here and there...others not so much. You will have to eliminate each of those and then add back one at a time - slowly - for one week each - to determine which thing is giving you a problem. Meanwhile, Stick w/ whole foods, proteins and veggies, and healthy fats... shoot to track your foods here if you can. Roughly 65-70% fats, 25% proteins, 5% carbs. Drink 1/2 your body weight in water ounces DAILY. And then report back in how things are going. You will need to do this for the next full two weeks, to see if eliminating the above, makes an improvement in your Induction results.

Atkins Frozen Meals
Not to turn this into a Recipe Thread - but I make a mean Meatloaf that is totally Induction Friendly. Start w/ 80% Ground Beef (or whatever kind you buy) 1-2 Cups of Crushed Pork Rinds 1 Egg 1/2 Cup shredded parm cheese Add diced onion or green pepper (if you like) Seasonings (salt/pepper/etc) It's fantastic!
