Hello, I use the food and fitness planner every day to help myself lose weight. I noticed a problem with it today. Right now where I track my food intake it is right around 1300 calories, when I go to any of the other screens it says I have eaten over 1500 calories. I calculated the calorie total to make sure that wasn't the mistake, but it came to be right around 1300. Anyone else having this problem is there any way to fix it? View Thread
I've been trying to lose weight by cutting calories and exercising regularly for about the past 7 months. Even though I fall off the wagon for a little while and gained back about ten pounds, I'm back on track now and I've lost about 22 pounds from my highest weight. In addition to weighing myself, I've been taping my waistline, and I've noticed that for the past couple of months, even though I've been losing weight, my waistline has stayed about the same. I also took progress pictures of my torso to see the physical difference over time. Since today I reached another ten pounds less than my last progress pic I decided to take more, but I was disappointed to see that my stomach has gotten noticeably larger around than it was 10 pounds ago. It's especially obvious from the side view. I'm really worried about this, because the stomach has always been where I carried most of my excess weight, and I'm really concerned about the health effects of too much fat there. Any idea what could be causing it? I've heard that targeting certain areas (like by doing abdominal exercises) doesn't work, but is there any way to prevent fat from building up in a certain area? Thanks.
Oh btw, I'm 23, female, and I'm about 40 pounds overweight for my height as of now.View Thread
I have been overweight ever since the birth of my first child 37 years ago. I gained 65 pounds during my pregnancy and never lost it. I have dieted on every fad diet there is only to get bored with it and slowly return to my chips, cookies, and ice cream. Now I'm 57 years old and 150 pounds overweight. I am worried about my health but the worry only brings on more stress and we all know what happens. I just can't seem to stick with it. I can't seem to change my old habits. Now I suffer from fibromyalgia and it hurts to do any sort of exercise. I'm sure I sound like everyone else who posts on here but I didn't know where else to turn. I feel hungry all the time. Where do I begin?View Thread
Hi guys! Been using WebMD for a while but this is my first post, so hopefully it's in the right place! Okay so basically over the past week or so I've been researching the pros and cons of replacing a couple of meals a day(possibly all meals) with a range of nutritionally complete smoothies.
After watching the movie "Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead" I have basically decided to try smoothies long term. Though juices are used in this film I have a feeling that smoothies will have a similar effect, with the added bonus of more fiber! I want to use these as a way to move towards a whole foods plant based diet and I was wondering if anyone sees any glaring nutrient or mineral deficiencies that may arise with this kind of diet.
Obviously they need to be up around 400-500 calories (if I'm having 3 a day) to keep my body out of starvation mode and keep that metabolism going! As far as I can tell pretty much every nutrient required by the body can be picked up from veges, fruit, nuts, seeds, legumes and whole grains. It is possible to still get enough calcium, iron, omega-3, zinc and B12 when this diet is basically vegan? Any tips, recipes or advice would be greatly appreciated. P.S. Sorry for the essay .

Hi - I'm 73, had prostate cancer about 9 years ago (PH is .02>), but now am experiencing incontinence requiring adult diapers 24/7. I'm 6'1", but about 250 lbs. I'm a working pianist (sitting and putting out lots of emotional energy) and a music arranger (sitting at a computer). My preference for exercise is walking, but I've been unable due to any "power" walking due the diaper constraints. Are their any exercises recommend for someone like me? Oh, and I'm a very good eater, as you can guess. Thanks for any suggestions in advance...
http://selfempowermentskills.com . Have you been waiting for the right time in your life to really buckle down and lose those extra pounds? Well that time is right now! Read on to discover the tips the pros use when they need to lose weight. It's never been easier- just read and follow these tips to a healthier life!
Try to order restaurant meals as basic as possible. Once you start adding many extras, you are also adding calories that you really do not need. For example, a burger with lettuce and tomato is not so bad, but once you add mayonnaise, bacon, and cheese it raises the fat content. This will definitely inhibit your weight loss goals.
One of the easiest methods to cut back on calories without feeling you are being denied all of your favorite foods is to lighten those foods that you love. It is often easier to switch to a lower-calorie version of your favorite foods than it is to totally give them up. If pizza is a food that you crave, it tastes just as great with a reduced-fat cheese and the reduction in fat and calories will help you shed those excess pounds.Click HereView Thread
