WEIGHT LOSS Frequently Asked Questions: Infographic Answers

So rather than overwhelm people with walls of text, I've been slowly gathering a couple of infographics either that I've made myself or that are posted regularly on the boards that might make it easier for noobs to see how things work. I'll start with a couple and add more over time. If anyone else has any good ones please feel free to share in the same format.

It's also handy for those of us who post regularly to find them all in one place to copy and paste them again.

    The first dozen or so times I tried to lose weight I gave up after 2 weeks, just because I didn't know about the fluctuations...

    I was guilty of exactly the same thing before I found the forums and started weighing daily!

    I just saved the PB pic! I'm guilty of just guessing what everything is. Getting ready to order a bunch of random tablespoons to fix this problem.

    These are great. Happy to see people are starting to see through the BS. The starvation mode one had me dying.

    Love them all! Especially the starvation mode :)

    ETA: this should be a sticky

    I wonder how you can log foods with scale. Most nutrition facts are done in metric system, but not all.

    @crippcrunch
    Almost all packaged food has nutrition facts by weight on the packaging, fresh produce nutrition info is available on the USDA database, if it's not in the MFP database you add it yourself. There's a very good post on this in the Most Helpful posts on either Getting Started or General Health board, can't remember which.
