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!

I found 5:2 very good when I was working. I would take nothing to eat to work with me, come in in the evening, have my low cal meal (Weight Watchers or such like) and that was me for the evening. Now I ...

JUST WONDERING
To add to sweetmissy56 comments, you can use the FS set up a program to set your RDI to gain weight. To gain one pound a week, you have to add 3500 calories to you RDI(weekly) In other words, using 1440 ...

Hello and Help Please
I agree. Gaining 30 lbs in a month when you have actually been doing things to make yourself healthier is alarming to me. The water retention alarms me as well. If your doctor says there is nothing wrong, ...
