CRAVINGS: Discipline & self control? NO that's not it.
We hear so much: QUOTE: "people say it's all about self control and discipline...
&: ..and exercise: we are told it's a good hurt. NO.." END QUOTE.
They are wrong.
It is NOT about self control and discipline!
We are bombarded with stress, tempted with unhealthy fattening foods, EVERYWHERE.!
WE DON'T HAVE TIME required to take proper care of ourselves. (With long commutes, and/or too many things to do).
It IS about taking charge, changing habits.
TAKING time for ourselves. EATING A HUGE BREAKFAST! (We may think that's counterproductive? but it is KICKSTARTING our metabolism, denying we are in a famine, giving us the fuel we need for the rest of the day, so we don't go into CRAVINGS. and without a good huge breakfast WE WILL!)
IT IS NOT about INHUMAN SELF DISCIPLINE! Smile
I'm slim, and lean, with some fat. NOT because I'm NATURALLY SKINNY. ANYONE CAN AND WILL GET FAT WITH THE CURRENT AVAILABLE DIET. (REMEMBER; when I was in grade school, 60 or more years ago, there was only ONE FAT KID IN THE ENTIRE SCHOOL.)
AND, about the GOOD HURT. yes it feels good to do a balanced reasonable workout. (I've been working out at clubs and at home gym for over 30 years.)
BUT I see SO MANY people at the clubs KILLING THEMSELVES, way OVERDOING IT, and getting no where, AFTER YEARS of doing this overkill.
Long workouts will burn fat, yes, but only if we are in the fat burning pulse zone!
Muscle burns fat all the time, while resting!
Working out builds some muscle, and muscle is denser than fat, so we look BETTER, even while we weigh more that we expected. Or LOST less than expected.
I NEVER shop for groceries when hungry. that's a habit.
& habit: I always eat a large breakfast, balanced with minerals, micro nutrients, protein, fats, carbs. (carbs are not the enemy, unless we start CRAVING THEM due to NOT feeding our body in the morning and Noon.!)
THAT IS THE SECRET! NO STRUGGLE, No INHUMAN discipline! Or super person marathon workouts!
Only loving ourselves enough to properly nourish & care for ourselves.
Getting enough sleep.
getting up early enough for a good large healthy breakfast.
Relaxing during the day.
Enjoying being alive, and all our blessings Smile

Logging Daily Food

Is there any way to manually add something to food diary that isn't in fatsecret data base?

I add food to the database all the time.
But sometimes it's not clear on how to do so.
I think they changed it recently.
got this from FAQ's menu, bottom of the page:

How do I add a food to the database?
When you click "Add item" from your food diary, you can click on "New Item" or if you search for a food and can't find it in the database, you can click on "Add this item to the food database". You will then be able to add an item to the food database by completing all details for the food such as the brand, product and nutritional information. You can choose to share the food with other members and add it to any meal and use it over again.

checking today, I DON'T see "New Item" or add item, anywhere.
also, it seems to be easier to do from my Android phone.

entering My Bio fails
Thanks Mummydee and JustineJones, good ideas.
I tried both, but fatsecret.ca made no difference,
and
Even one short sentence gets the same null result.
Oh well, but very strange.
every time I log in I check, and the same short bio I tried to enter comes up when I go to 'My Bio".
with the same "SAVE" & "CANCEL" buttons waiting.

entering My Bio fails
tried many times, but this web site refused to accept or complete the process.
sometimes come up with error messages, apologies.
then later it just fails to complete the process.

Also tried on 2 different browsers. same thing.
I'm on a Mac
