Always lead a pretty active lifestyle but never stressed too hard about calorie or weight gain as I burned it all off. Just hit 30 and the rumors are true, you have to start watching what you eat even if you’re extremely active as I am! I’m an arborist, climber pruner for work, do Muay Thai, kyokushin karate, mma and bjj, rock climbing, yoga, but with such an active lifestyle, I eat nonstop. Time to control what I eat. This app looks amazing! I live just outside NYC in Yonkers, work in queens. Any healthy, active friends welcome! Let’s go!

    Logging should help you to target foods that are costing you more calories than they're worth to you in satiety, pleasure, and/or nutrition. Don't forget to log drinks, condiments, and cooking/finishing fats (butter, oil, etc.).

    Best of luck.

    For sure, there are limits . . . at any age. Eventually, many of use will find them. Catching and reversing that early, and managing it better going forward, is really smart.

    I wish I'd been smart enough to do that at 30-something, speaking from the perspective of 68, finally now pretty active and at a healthy weight. ;)

    Good advice from Lynn up there on the how-to.

    You can find quite a few other vegans, and other serious lifters (bodybuilders, power lifters, etc.) if you look in the right places here.

    Best wishes!
