I can name most items on my plate avatar. ST goal -- adjustment-- not concerned about BF but more about logging constantly. First 15 pounds have stayed off for almost 5 years so the next 10-12 pounds will take longer. I enjoy cat herding, adult herding (aka--volunteering) and am a foodie at heart.

Question about varying nutrition information
I find the largest variances in meat cuts or options for meat selections. Example "ham" 3rd option is Ham (whole, cured, roasted) 118 grams in weight is 287 calories. Kunzler ham same weight (118 grams) is 140 calories. Chicken breast is another fun selection. The site may be run by vegans or folks dead set in making counting as cumbersome as possible. Seriously though, double-check entries with multiple sites if you can and then make note of which entries are the most accurate.

Do low calories really slow metabolism?
Less calories and slowing of metabolism.....yes. Permanent....only if you reach room temperature. Damage....is relative and tough to measure so depending on the Woo peddler they may have you believe damage and doom but simply put less fuel (calories) = a slowing metabolism but not a damaged or 'permanently damaged' unless someone is selling a book or a diet plan.

Help Please RE: "Consuming more than burning"
Are you accounting for all activity or just exercise? Our bodies are burning calories 24/7. IDK it seems a likely culprit.
