I am an Indian male, and want to reduce my weight. But I have gluten intolerance and being an Indian Roti's (made of Wheat) and rice are major part of my food. Eating roti's will damage my intestine and eating rice will make me fat. How shall I maintain a healthy diet?View Thread
I have recently been diagnosed with fibromyalgia and am recently working with a cardiologist to see what is going on with my heart. I have gained about 20 pounds in the last year and try and eating healthy. But the weight keeps coming. My sleep is important to me or making the week of work is very hard. Up at seven , and get home at 6:15. Make supper and eat then in bed relaxing by 8:00 -8:30 most nights. Have no energy to do a lot of excercise so I do some stretching excersice so I am not so sore. Any suggestions to get more energy and drop some weight.View Thread
Hoping this site will motivate me. My biggest hurdles will be to exercise daily and to not drink. I don't drink to excess but I drink daily (2 glasses of wine or beer) and as I get older it just goes straight to my waist. I had set a goal last year to be jogging by now but got sick over the holidays and now I just feel like I'm so behind and starting over. It's depressing but I'm excited to be in this community and hope I can stick with it this time. I need a life change!View Thread

Last May I started working from home and I love it, but I find myself snacking a lot more (even when I'm not necessarily hungry) and have gained 10 pounds. Anyone else work from home or at an office that has tons of food to enjoy that can give me any pointers?View Thread

I'm trying to lose weight again. But is my approach wrong? I try to eat less than what I burn, but then I read about leptin today (when I read about the venus factor here ). Is really leptin that important? Is this why I don't lose weight? I try to work out 5 times a week. I've tried low-carb earlier, is this bad for leptin?
Hope someone can answer me, I don't want to start over at the "wrong" approcah.

I am currently 35-40 pounds overweight. I am finding it very difficult to manage food choices on my own. I am really hoping that the discussion portion of this program will motivate me. I find it heard to reach out but I feel I must. Nothing else has worked in a long time.View Thread
