Hit some upheavals, after moving for a job. Old casual adherence wasn't working so easily anymore :( So I had to try something new. Have found the FS community really supportive and helpful. Its great to know people are cheer-leading for each other on their journey to better health and a more active life!!

Welcome all advice, and like to hear tips/others' experiences. Especially with recipes!!

My weakness is pasta, cheese and wine. I'm not too bad on the sweet treats, I seem able to resist those quite well. I don't drink Juice Sodas or any of that stuff just Green Tea Coffee and Water. Fruit, I eat only once or twice a week and try instead to load up on green vegetables and peppers as much as I can.

I am trying really hard to learn about my carb loading, I am trying with difficulty to keep it in the 20-30% range.. I'll keep working on it.

Here's my two cents. I notice when i run and enter that on FS - FS reduces my calorific on the rest segment. So, as I was trying to figure out the over pay by FS for the exercise, I realise that FS appears include your stationary expenditure with your exercise component. If you're burning 500 cal an hour by running i.e. physical exertion is arguably the only record a treadmill can make not other physiological functions... are you then also burning 100 cal for base function, does that get us to the differential? Hmm .. it's a quirk but I think FS includes compensation for base function.
