A bit frustrated
Many overweight individuals fail to lose weight with dieting. While it is always assumed they are doing a poor job of dieting, it has been shown, however, that chronic dieting in overweight individuals results in increased levels of NEFA, which suppresses T4 uptake into the cells (3). This suppressed T4 uptake results in reduced intracellular T4 levels and subsequent T4 to T3 conversion and a reduced metabolism

#Diablo360X - I find you to be insulting most of the time - It;s too bad because it seems like you are very knowledgeable and you are missing a good opportunity to help people. However I also think that you have no idea what it is like to be obese. EVERYTHING changes - I can tell you this because I am a former competitive athlete! First figure skating - then windsurfing when things are working you can eat almost anything with in moderation - once you become obese the rules change. The latest research is actually looking at obesity as a fat storage disorder (there are some people out there who are very fat on one part of their body often the legs and very thin on another part of their body - the upper body - you can't be fat and skinny at the same time if it is all calories in and out!) When systems get out of whack is it not so simple any more! I personally am at a clinic for metabolic disorders. I have kept my calorie count between 900-1200 for 5 weeks, I work out EVERY day - rotating through the bike, yoga, and weight lifting - I also walk between 10,000 - 15,000 steps a day - yet I'm not losing - want to explain that for me?

Why eat Clean, organic food??
Estrogen is a huge problem for me! it's not just in our foods it's in so many products even shopping receipts :( It is really hindering me - I as on medication for 2 years trying to balance my estrogen, finally had to get a progesterone IUD. I buy organic veggies and meat (when I can) and it is still a monumental struggle :(

can you really eat what you want as long as your in a calorie deficit?
Diablo360X - I actually always counted my calories - In fact I was a national level competitive athlete for all of my teens into my early 20's - I only had problems once I had children. I had two 10 pound babies back to back and had about 70 pounds to loose - which I did and kept it off until I hit 40 and once again had 2 back to back pregnancies. I am under serious medical supervision. I don't eat crap (nor have I ever!!) and I can tell you that when I was thin and fit I could eat twice what I can eat now. The fatter you get the easier it is to get fatter! If you have never been obese you have no idea what it is like or how people treat you. I am not a stupid person, I have two degrees, I don't get my information from fitness magazines. I am very aware of fruit GI - I eat mostly berries, and even then only in the morning and only with protein. I eat mostly green vegetables. I have multiple food allergies (wheat, rye, barley, oats, corn and rice) so it's not like I have ever stuffed my self with bonbons! You need to stop being so self righteous and maybe try to be more helpful.

From my personal experience - a resounding no! Carbs for me and many are a killer as they raise insulin levels which is a hormone that will make you gain weight - I don't eat ultra low carb but I do keep my carbs under 100 per day and I spread them out through out the day and always eat with protein and I do not eat refined carbs (no sugar, noodles, rice, potato or other grains) I eat lots of fresh fruits and vegetables. For years I ate a very restricted fat and calorie diet and got fatter and fatter and fatter!

Egg Receipe/Breakfast
I also have ceiac and many other food allergies so I have gone paleo - lately I have been trying to be greener so I have a breakfast smoothy - my current favourite 1 c frozen raspberries, 1/2 frozen banana, 2 T lemon juice, 1 T almond butter, 1/2 cup spinach, and 1 T of chia seeds - delicious and holds me to lunch time. I also try frittatas - a quiche with no crust - slice and dice any favorite veggies or meat then cover with egg and bake - slice and keep in freezer until ready to use. handy is helpful

Hildi72 - I used to get killer cravings for chocolate - I used to buy the best chocolate chips I could find - I'd measure out an ounce of them - count the chocolate chips and figure out the calories per chip. The ones I had were 2 calories each. I could count out 10 chocolate chips and savour each one - let it slowly melt in my mount enjoy and not feel guilty for my 20 calorie snack!!

they pay food engineers BIG BUCKS to engineer foods that we can't live with out - seriously they trigger the same centres in the brain that drugs like heroine do! We ar still largely driven by our ancient genetic coding that was created in a time when both sugar and fat were serious rarities and when found we would gorge on then to stave off starving. No wonder the population is almost double the size is used to be!! Once you go cold turkey it does get a lot better!

Do you eat breakfast? How important is it?
I had always heard that eat breakfast you'll lose more weight but it NEVER worked for me - I'd eat breakfast then I'd be starving all day long until that is I found out I was eating the wrong stuff. Eating carbs for breakfast just starts you on the insulin roller coaster BUT eating proteins really does help. I am always in a rush in the morning so I make up a bunch of frittatas on Sunday night have them individually sliced and just keep them in the freezer until I want one. Then it's 30 seconds in the microwave and I'm out the door. Made a huge difference. I'd make one broccoli and cheese, one pepper, onion and tomato and the last one would be what ever was left over probably through in some sliced ham. They are delicious! If anybody wants the recipe message me!

Keeping Bag Lettuce Fresh
The mason jars work well for pre-made salads - you can make your complete salad up (sans dressings) and pop them in the fridge and grab one for lunch each day - it's healthy fast food! I have never really had to worry about lettuce going bad we eat it so fast. I keep mine in a big zip lock though. Never use metal knives if you are going to cut it - the lettuce will rust.

HELP!!! Newly Diagnosed Celiac Disease
My little guy has wheat intolerance too! For his lunches we usually give him leftovers from the night before in a little thermos (he is 5!) He also loves brown beans, soup with rice crackers, meat roll ups (meat, cheese, lettuce rolled up) he always takes a container of fruit and one of veggies. Lately he has started asking for baked potatoes - we went on a road trip and Wendy's serves a baked potato with broccoli and cheese - he will get that with a 1/2 order of chilli - he loves it!

Drivers License Weight vs. Actual Weight
I am also from Ontario - and although we don't have our weight on our license we do have our pictures My old one was taken week after I got married almost 6 years ago when I was at my lightest weight since high school (before babies 3 and 4) I cried last September when I had to renew my license and have another photo taken 80 lbs heavier!!!! I used to like to whip it out to remind my self that I wasn't always as big as I am right now - now I just have proof that I was really this fat boooo! As soon as I get to my goal weight I am paying to get a new picture!!!
