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.

I still enjoy this story; lowered cholesterol, figured out it isn't where you eat but it is what you eat.


This teacher has the data to support his journey/WOE/change/accomplishment and heck, the kiddos learned something along the way. Who knew?

Advice on High-Protein/Low Carb for Muscle Gain
Is anything holding you back in terms of goals and diet? Well, 50-70 grams of protein a day with a caloric max (according to your numbers above) would make it difficult to grow/expand muscle. As for glute toning you may want to research Bret Contreras (the glute guy) some interesting workout options and some silly videos on the interwebz. What is 'intense' in terms of a workout 4 to 5 days a week may lead to some answers, then again, IDK. What is intense for you? Last, take pictures of yourself, and truly for your own validation. Front pic, side body view, and if possible a back shot. A swim suit if possible and a location you can repeat the shot at monthly intervals. Your eye will be a pretty fair indicator of progress and a tape measure as a backup to confirm what your eye sees.

Had My Socks Blown Off - Rookie Mistake

I just started my healthy eating challenge. My socks were blown off yesterday. I ordered spinach artichoke dip at Applebee's.....yikes.

Wow, research is priceless. The appetizer cost me 1000 calories.

I made up for it by walking my tail off yesterday afternoon but was so aggravated.

Lesson Learned.

genius kitchen.com has a copy cat recipe for this dip. 3 types of cheese, artichokes, spinach, roasted garlic alfredo sauce, and of course, pepper is optional. Did you find those socks yet?!? A serving on FS shows just over 1500 calories for a serving. Maybe over the holidays a little experiment is in order. BTW, most socks reappear inside clothing after a dryer run but everyone is unique so best of luck on your quest to find those suckers.Rolling Eyes

Google fit preventing sleep
Is the removal actually the accounting for your resting metabolic rate per hour? Your RMR or BMR? Some devices and apps account for an individual's BMR or RMR depending on data entered and some do not. Could this be the case with Google fit?
