    2 Questions: 1) I don't always find the food I am looking for on the list. Suggestions? I have been going to another nutrition look up site, find the food, then add it? Is that right? 2) Is there anything wrong with drinking 10 - 12 eight ounce glasses of water each day?

    1)Try the USDA list for foods that are inaccurate or not in the database. That is the most consistent source I have found. And as you know, you can add your own food items, if needed. Use the recipe builder for your homemade meals like casseroles and such.

    2) I think the water consumption is fine. I am not aware of any issues related to that.

    Hi Everyone, I’m back trying to get back on track. Lost about 40lbs last year and slowly put 20 back on...ugh. So here we go again. Looking forward to hopefully making some like minded friends and supporting each other. Wishing you all the best in your journeys!

    Hi to all! I’m April and I have 150 pounds to shed and leave behind. I’m really terrible at a few things (hence the current weight problems): I suck at tracking and logging food, being consistent, defeating apathy, being creative with food, exercising, being social, and making friends. The good news is I am up for adoption! IKR!?! Happy day. 😊

    Hello. I am not new, but have been away for awhile and am back now. I have recorded my meals for 60 days now so I think it is becoming a good habit. Are there any member from NE Oregon. Could use some motivation for eating right and especially getting to the gym more.

    Hello everyone, I'm new to all of this and pretty nervous about it all. I have a big goal ahead of me (250lb to lose!) and I know it'll take a long time but I hope I can make it through.

    Hello everyone. I am not a complete Noob as I have been a member since 2014. However due to family issues have not posted here for a very long time. Amazingly I haven't gone back to the weight I was when I first joined MFP. However I still have a lot to lose. I am aiming for around 40lbs. I am on the "Fast 800" plan by Dr Michael Mosley. I then plan to move over to the 5:2 plan by the same guy. So far I am having amazing results. Anyone want to join me?
