Fat mass index
I have not really given the fat mass index much thought as I have always used the BMI as a guide. I now weigh 10st 3.5lbs and at 5ft 7ins this puts me in the middle of my ideal BMI. However having checked my fat mass index on a new machine which has appeared in town, it seems my body fat is fairly high at 31%. I have always wondered if the BMI would be accurate for me as I have very small hands and feet for my height (size 4 feet)

I am not sure how it works really. Should I be looking to lose a few more pounds to get within an ideal range or is it something that can only be achieved with building muscle? I am quite restricted when it comes to working out as I get severe migraines which can be triggered by exercise. I am about to start pilates and I walk a lot.

what does "food mean"?
I never believed all the hype about potatoes.Smile

I would have a very complex answer to that question but work on thinking of food as nutrition and medicine. Hopefully that will help my make choices that are helpful not toxic.

Calculated RDI question
Mine was at maintenance weight but you can adjust it for if you want to lose or maintain.

What Are Your Hardest Times Of The Day to Resist Breaking Your Diet
Same time for me. End of work and tired. I take the dog straight out for a good walk as soon as I get home and it passes. I know I don't have long to hang on for tea then.

Group for those going through menopause or perimenopause
I do tend to go for a good brisk walk if I feel my stress levels rising. Maybe I need to step it up a bit.

At the moment, i have been trying to eat healthily and increasing intake of the omega fats. I am hoping to see an improvement in symptoms.
