Is it true?
[quote=Chereen Willett]Hi, is it really true that if I stick to my calaries (1310 p/d) calculated to loose weight, no matter how I make up that 1310kcal, I will loose weight? Years of diets have brainwashed me that all chocolate, fats, sugars & carbs are wrong, so when I eat a chocolate but I'm still within my allowance per day, I feel guilty. And what about the "have to have a balanced diet" views? Any advise?[/quote] Simply put: Yes it's true. But 1310 calories of chocolate won't contain everything else your body needs, (vitamins, minerals etc), to run properly. A balanced diet just means eating a wide variety of food. Of chocolate can be one. In moderation.

CRYSTAL LIGHT & WATER
Not to mention that 3/4 to 4/5ths of your "water" intake comes from the food you eat. The non-caffeine is also not held up by any actual study. Caffeine makes you void your bladder more often but doesn't seem to have any effect on the water transit (so it's NOT the diuretic people believe it is).

WHAT items do you like in your salad?
I like Lettuce, cucumber, celery, grated carrot & tomato as the basic salad. Then pickled vegetables (red cabbage, pickled onions, etc etc). If I am making a meal of the salad adding some protein via boiled eggs, or chickpeas. reduced fat feta style cheeses regulars too. Not a huge fan of most dressings (the pickled vegetables provide enough tang generally). Balsamic vinegar is when those have been left out though.

why doesn't my search work?
The search system leaves a lot to be desired. I tend to use google instead. That seems to be more reliable in actually finding foods.

Free learn to run app for android without gps??
The c25k app given in the 2nd link of KayTee86's reply is excellent as is the c210k app by the same publisher. I was up to week 5 before I got derailed. And if it will just stop raining I will get back to it.

Is this a healthy meal??
[quote=mrspackrat][quote=rioca... only thing I thought is you shouldn't use liquid from a marinade, especially chicken, due to the bacteria in it. That could make someone pretty sick[/quote] So long as the leftover marinade was cooked with the squash and not just poured on after any bacteria should have been killed.[/quote] Most food safety sites say to dump the marinate, don't even risk using it to baste the meat. It's just not worth the risk.[/quote] Basting implies you are adding more of the used marinade at periods DURING cooking. Which is obviously a stupid thing to do, adding fresh bacteria to the, part cooked, dish and risking not cooking them long enough to ensure any bugs are killed... I agree that's dumb. Adding it at the beginning of cooking however should be fine, as I said. Because the marinade would be cooked thoroughly.

Android App Permissions
It uses: Your location <- don't understand why it would need that. Network Communication, full network access <- To access the back-end okay it needs that Storage <- To hold it's own data... Okay it needs that Phone-calls, phone status and identity <- don't understand why it would need that. Hardware controls, take photos and video <- It needs access to the phone camera to read bar-codes and to take photos you can add to food entries, I normally add a picture of the packaging and nutritional content when I add foods to it. Network communication, view network connections <- Not sure why it would need this but would presume it's related to the one above Development tools, test access to protected storage <- don't know why it needs that. The only one which concerns me is the last, and after some googling it seems it needs that in order to write to external memory such as SD cards. Why it needs that I'm not sure, maybe if you have the app installed on SD rather than the phone's internal memory. The status one seems odd but also seems pretty standard.

The Fatsecret Ticker
Try logging your weight in one of the other mirrors (fatsecret.co.uk/fatsecret.com... etc etc) I registered on uk, but if I log my weight there it errors. Fatsecret.com however works fine and my ticker updates.

It's an activity monitor. A glorified pedometer that syncs wirelessly with your phone and computer.

His rdi seems about the same as mine if i let fatsecret set it Keld. Fitbit averages my burn at 3100ish per day so long as I maintain about 16k steps a day.

Intermittent Fasting
If they are exercising heavily then I can see it working they are roughly my weight and on a heavy day I can hit about 3.5k a day according to my fitbit. But whether it continues long term is another question. But yeah they really should start transitioning to a better overall diet. Each to their own though. I can't say my diet had been the best for the past month or so.

metabolism
I very rarely eat breakfast. When I do it generally makes me feel nauseous. By the time I can safely eat it's almost lunchtime. So I tend to wait until lunch. This hasn't changed with my diet... And it doesn't seem to have had any effect on my weight-loss. With any diet knowing YOUR body is the key!

Ahhh, so he's monitoring the days when he's not fasting. That makes a lot more sense.

I totally agree with Ketomancer. I added it over the past month and no more problems. I dropped all the extra fiber, etc. Take one at noon and one with dinner.

Point noted. Thanks for the advice again. I ate a little extra carb rich food at the party but will now consciously eat more carb-free/low-carb food. thanks
