So, I've been on here for a bit, but only introducing myself now.

Question: I was seeing a dietitian and she had me logging a food journal based on food portions/servings I intake, not calories. Are there any diets on here that are similar?? Right now I'm having to create my own diet by just punching in as close to what my dietitian recommended... Is Weight Watchers like this?

Can't wait to start utilizing some of the features on this site. And I've only just now discovered I can have 'buddies' on here! Very Happy

Weight watchers has two different diets - You've probably heard of the "Points" program (that's the one Fergie uses) - you have to keep track of the points (caulculate using Calories, Fat & Fiber) of the foods you eat on that one.
The other program is called the "Core" program. You're allowed to eat unlimited amounts of their list of Core foods (Their list only conatains certain vegetables, fruits, starches, meats, etc) and then you also get a weekly "points" allowance to use for foods that aren't on the list.
So... I don't think either of those plans is like what your dietician is recommending, sorry. Good luck!
