Recipe Approval
I was wondering this too. I submitted about 5 recipes MONTHS ago and none of them have been approved yet. I wondered if it was because who ever makes these decisions didn't think they were healthy enough or something, but I have seen some recipes that I would consider VERY unhealthy on this website, so I don't think that is it anymore. I would also like to know the answer to this.

The exercise journal has to be off!
Valnessa, the crazy amount of excercise they do on Biggest Loser is just so that they can lose those HUGE numbers every week, which are really unrealistic numbers for most normal people trying to lose weight. Excercise is still INCREDIBLY important to weight loss because it increases your metabolism and helps you tone and strengthen your body.

becoming a vegetarian
I don't think it is that difficult at all, even with out family support. I am not a vegetarian any more, but I was for a few years, and I also tried being vegan for a few months. I would definitely say try to start out being a vegetarian, because it can be extremely difficult to go vegan, especially if you are in a household that doesn't support it. Reading labels is important, because a lot of times meat products are stuck in products you wouldn't expect. And to warm your family up to the idea you could try offering to cook a vegetarian meal for them once a week. Something like vegetable lasagna won't be as scary for meat eaters as trying to convince them to try tofu or something (even though tofu is delicious!). There are tons of vegetarian recipes online. If all else fails just start small, like cutting out red meat or something. Good luck!

Hibachi Points??
I had the same problem. I had ABSOLUTELY no luck. They keep that info on lock-down apparently.

Status Bar Color Change
the color change indicates the percentage of weight loss you have reached toward your goal. 25% is one color, 50% is another etc. So all of your color change means you are doing a great job! Congrats! :)

Recipes on Fat Secret
I think some people create food items but don't accurately depict what they are eating. for example, bardwa1, the broccoli that was put in as 174 cal might have had, for the person who created it, butter on it, but they only wanted to name it broccoli. some people have a hard time being honest with themselves about what they're eating. Yea, you cooked fresh broccoli, but then what did you add to it to make it that many calories? If I can't find exactly the right brand and product I am eating, I create a new entry that is exactly correct. Then you can accurately track exactly what you have put in your body.

submitting recipies
That is terrible! I wonder why they would do that when this site is based so much on user contributions... Thank you for the answer though! :)

submitting recipies
I submitted a recipe, but I changed my mind and would like to delete it. Is there any way I can do that? I haven't been able to find a delete option for a submitted recipe that is awaiting approval. Thanks!

Sweet tooth
I got my Quest bars tonight and freaked... 27 grams of carbs. But then I saw the fiber was 18 grams, so I guess that qualifies as 9 'net' carbs. Let's see how they do.

Work Potluck
I like the dip! That's pretty cool. I also like the deviled eggs idea, but someone else is already bringing those.

Vegan Diet
Hi. I'm trying to eat a vegan diet. Does anyone follow this type of eating plan? What types of food do you eat to get full?

barcode scanner giving me the wrong items
I think this has to do with the database and it stinks because there is no getting around it. THis has happened to me twice. I put in some pork rinds and I got cheese!

Input my meals to the wrong day - easiest/quickest way to copy them to correct day?
This happened to me by mistake the other day - there is a way to copy the entire eating day somehow to another day, but since I had accidentally switched two days, I just decided to leave them that way ...
