I am a 23-year old nutrition couselor living in AZ. I have browsed through all of the other web weightloss databases (SparkPeople, southbeach, dailytracker, etc) to find something ot reccommend for clients that cant afford the system at the clinic. I like this one the best so I decided to sign up and join. I will be posting many recipes that I have created and rating the ones that are tasty and actually healthy! The most current research on nutrition out dates what I learned while completing my college degree in nutrition. Updated the textbooks!! Whole foods, fruit, vegetables, lean meats, and good fat should be the bulk of the diet. Dairy, Grians, and sweets should be condiments! I am a dance teacher as well and love to cook and try new restaurants/cuisines. I LOVE FOOD, but gotta stay healthy! I think fatsecret is cool!

Some ways to boost your metabolism = Greater daily burn
RE: calorie issue

Yes, I agree everyone is different and the whole eating like a ticking clock isn't always the solution. Occasionally fasting and switching up your workouts and meals surprises the body and keeps you going! Just like a bad smell isn't as bad when you're around it all the time. Our bodies can get used to the same monotenous schedule. We have to keep it new, exciting and throw curveballs!

atkins diet stand still
Just keep eating the right veggies, choose a tad leaner meat and half your cheese intake and you will break your plateau. Also, make sure to drink water and watch how much salt you are eating. Plateaus are normal, it's a test to see if you can keep motivated through it!!
