What does net- xxxx Kcal mean?
a calorie is the amount of energy needed to raise 1 gram of water 1 degree celcius.

1000 calories= 1 kcal (kilocalorie)= 1Calorie ( note the capital C)

When most people talk about Calories they are using Calories big C even if they type calories little c. What they mean is kilocalories. All food is in Calories.

So kcal =Calorie but since this C vs c thing is not well understood and some places just use kcal

Garcina Cambogia...
I posted on Facebook not long ago about how tired I am of Dr. Oz. I'm sorry to anyone who thinks he's great, but IMHO he's no different than a snake oil salesman. I'm not saying that he doesn't know what he's talking about as far as other health issues, but when it comes to weight loss it seems he is taking advantage of people desperate for something that works. I don't watch his show, but every time I log onto Facebook I see a new ad for a weight loss gimmick that Dr. Oz is peddling. It seems to be a new "guaranteed results" "breakthrough weight loss" every time. One week it's cranberry extract, some fruit the next week, and who knows what it will be a month from now. I'm sorry, I don't believe anything he pushes. Again, just my two cents.

What a week of groceries look like.
Thank you for sharing it. It was very interesting to see how families in some other countries feed more people on much less. The American picture shows that most Americans do not eat enough fruits and vegetables and eat too much fast/processed foods. I was a bit shocked at the Mexican picture though. Did you see how many liters of Coke they drink? Granted, the Mexican version is made with real sugar instead of High Fructose Corn Syrup, but still....wow.

Today I hit my first goal of being out of the 210's. My next goal is to be in Onederland by July 4th weekend. Slow and steady wins the race right?
