I'm 45 and I'm tired of fighting with my body. My weight was fine till my mid 20s and then Insulin Resistance and PCOS set in and has made it very difficult to lose weight. I fought and lose the weight twice and I've managed to gain it all back yet again. As a Behavioral Analyst you'd think I would know better. I'm done... this is it. I'm hell bent and working my arse off to get to my goal AND STAY THERE!!!! I've been on FatSecret for a week and I think it's a great tool. I plan to stick around a while. :) Val from NY

What to do if the calories your suppose to eat are too many?
I am finally getting good results from my exercise and eating routine. I am working out for 20 minutes 3 times per day... 6am, after lunch, and before (or after) dinner. I find that my body responds best to shorter workings 3 times per day than 1 longer workout. What works for one person may not work for another.

Those estimates on daily caloric intake requirement is showing you what you need to eat in order to MAINTAIN your current weight. 1400 cal a day is very reasonable and will help you lose weight. That's all there is to it. 1200 is as low as you should go on a regular basis (unless directed by a doc to go lower) but 1400 is very reasonable.

What to eat everyday? because my RDI says I need to eat 2400 CAL per day.
I agree with everyone else, Jeoren. The first time I thought I was "fat" was when I was young like you and then I started dieting etc and I think I actually dieted UP to this weight now... it's not a good idea. If I were you, I'd cut out soda and candy because no one should eat that junk and then become more active in your daily activities.

How Often Do you weigh yourself?
In the beginning of a new weight loss regime (I've tried so many times...), I weigh in daily when I get up. After a month or so I cut it back to once a week or once every two weeks. I like to see what is working and what is not in the beginning. I also like to get a full month of data regarding my body, it's rhythms, the way I'm reacting to different foods, when I'm retaining water, etc. The whole process of weight loss is very difficult and frustrating as you know. I'm so determined this time though-enough is enough. I'm 45 now...
