    You should be eating some of your calories back if you are exercising. Your deficit to lose weight is already built in to your daily calorie goal by the site; you risk netting too few calories if you consistently don't eat back some/all of your exercise calories.

    Hi all! I am new and looking to lose all the weight I have gained back again and again over the years. I am hoping to lose 40-50lbs.
    I just started the Intuitive Eating book/workbook and am feeling very positive about it so far.

    I am very open to any and all support as I trek on this fitness and healthy living journey.

    Howdy to everyone. I'm Doni, soon to be 59yo, I live in East Texas & grew up in Chicagoland + WI. I have serious cardio & pulmonary issues. Through very poor eating habits, being 3/4 sedentary, meds, fluid retention, etc. I have 100 lbs or more to take off. I am going to set up to do this in 10% increments, that is if I can figure out the iPhone app. lol

    New to all of this. I used this site years ago, but just for logging food. How do you reply to others, hit send message?

    Hello! I am kind of new here. Was here about 1 1/12 years ago, but I somehow lost the ability to log in and decided to start all over again. I would love to lose about 30 pounds by summer.

    Hello I’m not a newbie I started in 2014. I made the mistake of changing to another calorie counting app. That was a big mistake. I downloaded the app again last week and it is so awesome. I’ve always been a Premium user. But I never joined the community. This time I am going to use everything MyFitnessPal offers.

    Yes. Enter the foods individually. MFP will save them so they will be available on future days. You can also save a group of foods as a meal (ie, bacon and eggs and toast). Then you just select the meal the next time you eat that food.

    Entering everything is a little tedious at first, but you will quickly build a database of foods that you eat most often.
