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.

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 a year 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!

help...what am i doing wrong on induction? can't lose weight and have gained a couple pounds
Gonna jump in w/ my two cents worth... take it for what it is. (just my opinion) If you start out w/ just whole foods from the Induction Lists (nothing processed) than you can adjust from there. Just like you, I ate mostly whole foods from the beginning. The one thing I was eating that was processed, was sugar-free jello. One day, after 6 weeks of banging my head against my scale... a friend here suggested I give up the sf jello for two weeks, and see what happened. WHAT??? It was one of the few treats I could still indulge in. I was brand new to this! Ok, I wanted the scale to move and six weeks w/ literally zero pounds lost... just didn't seem right. What the heck is in sf jello, anyway? Well, you guessed it... I gave it up and w/ in the first week, I was down a pound. Everything else was EXACTLY the same. The week after I was down two. And on it went for months straight. I still don't know the absolute answer. Was it the artificial sweetner? or the gelatin? or what? Don't really care anymore, just glad to know what was causing the major stall...and got over it. Snacked on a few small celery sticks w/ cream cheese...and that didn't seem to bother my progress. I think if you stick w/ the whole foods on induction, along w/ the right amounts that they suggest (2-4 oz cheese, 4-6oz protein, 12-15g's of veggies... 20g's Carbs total/day) You should be in good shape. And don't forget to drink your water. It makes a HUGE difference! Like I said...just my two cents worth!

Hey Pauldings - Welcome aboard!!! Jump right in...and ask lots of questions or check out people's journals, and connect w/ some that you feel are doing what you want to be doing. Don't be deterred by the mayhem - it'll pass!

Post Limit?
Ok, it's not posting in your journals that I was talking about.... If you go to the top of the page - mouse over My Fat Secret - a list of options come up... one of which is MY FORUM POSTS - that is where it shows I have about 2000. At the bottom of that page it has the option to "See All Posts" and that's where it only shows the most recent 100. The rest are still stored in the history of the actual Community Forums where I posted them. I just have to go search them out to find them. (like that will ever happen.) aaaggghhhhhhhh! I used to love that feature.
by jsfantome (submitted a year ago)
Post Limit?
I just looked back in mine... NOT HAPPY! I believe it is the last 100 posts that show. I have over 2000!!! where the heck are the rest of them. What a drag! I'm so not happy!

What's going on?
In my opinion, if you're NOT looking thru and reading some of the OLDER posts/forums on here... you are missing out! There is such great info on here if you're willing to dig for it. If you find a gem...and make a comment/reply... it bumps it up to the top of the list so others not digging can find them too!!! Happy Reading!

What's going on?
What YOU put to identify what diet you are on... "Keld's Own Diet" has absolutely NO EFFECT or IMPACT to how the site operates. It just gives you a slight insight as to the particular dieter's 'diet' of choice. Obviously 'Someone's Own Diet' doesn't tell you much.. so you would need to read their bio, perhaps view some of their food journal days/menu's, or journals, to get more insight. Everyone is using the same site. Selecting 'Atkins' doesn't change anything at all about what appears on FS. In the 'my diet' section I can choose... just like you can... which 6 things I want to track in my food journal. make sense? hope so! Much Love.

Weight loss for overweight children
Hey keld, had this on my mind a lot today...and had a few more thoughts about it. This young girl - needs someone who can get to know her. Someone who will build a relationship with her. (like you would and have, with your own daughter.) Someone - who along w/ her Mom - can make a long-term commitment. She will have her successes...and some setbacks. And I think she needs to be surrounded by people who care about HER (even when maybe she doesn't.) Kids are funny creatures. She might act like she wants this now...but she doesn't really know at what cost. Obviously it would be best if the 'family' was modeling Healthy Eating, and Exercise...as lifestyle choices..that they all are changing to. That way they could support each other. Just a few things to think about.

Weight loss for overweight children
Keld, I'm not sure...but I have seen young people on this site. Is there any reason you couldn't use FS for the calorie counting? Or perhaps do some research to find a site geared for adolescents? I would be slightly concerned about some of the possible medical aspects you may not know anything about. She may not either! Giving the Mom the 'info' so she becomes the driver in this situation...would seem the best idea to me. Coach the MOM to help her daughter...can you do that? Just my opinion...
