I am a 30 year old, married mother of 2 girls (5yrs and 8mo). I work part time as a nurses assistant in a nursing home.
I have never had a sedentary lifestyle, but have not done any official "exercize" for many years. My pre child weight was 125 no matter what I did, but I gained a lot after my first and never went back.
I don't want to get into the fast weight loss and gaining cycle, and I am still breastfeeding, so I'm not going to take it to fast.
I would like to use this website to keep me on track for the next few months while I cut my calories and workout to regain my healthy body.

Adding Great Value Lentils to the Data Base (Wal-Mart brand)
I have had this problem with a couple of different foods. It is really discouraging.

high fiber foods
I'm discouraged that I can't enter more fiber than carbs when adding a new food to the database. There are foods that have more fiber than carbs listed on the label. I concentrate on lots of fiber and this is just annoying to me. Confused

They are called shirataki noodles, and I can get them at my local Meijer, but the kind with tofu and they are pricey. They have some calories because of the tofu. They were good, I'v been looking for something to substitute for ramen. I think they would be cheaper at the oriental supermarket but I never have time to get there while I'm in the city.
