  • What would you think if I said I asked my spouse not to have any cheese, ham, potatoes, turkey or bread in the house? I have gone over my calories before with those kind of foods. You'd probably think it was my problem not his because it is not chips or ice cream and should learn to eat less. Maybe we give type of food too…
  • I think it is okay to ask those you live with to eat a few foods you have trouble moderating with outside the home, only bring small quantities into the house or keep their snacks out of sight. I think if you are asking someone to change their whole diet for you to control yourself that is not fair though. If it is a lot…
  • I usually remove the skin of sweet potatoes. I don't like the texture of it.
  • I wait at least an hour to have anything but water because of a medication I take. I might wait longer to eat if I do not feel hungry but usually I am ready to eat after that hour.
  • I order my groceries from the store online and go pick them up once a week after I have had lunch. Otherwise I have a grocery list and stick to it closely. I'm not going to throw random cookies in my cart just because I missed lunch. If you did not have lunch or a snack planned then picking up a food like jerky to eat…
  • If the place has nutritional information online look it up in advance. If they do not you can look up similar dishes from othsr restaurants to get an idea. If you want lower calorie watch out for things like portion sizes, breaded, fried, cheese, bacon, creamy sauces or gravy, salad dressings, nuts, seeds, guacamole,…
  • My mom's hobby since high school was genealogy so I know a bit about our family. We are not related to anyone famous. No rich people. Our relatives were always plain farmers who had a bunch of kids (like 10 was common) until my grandparent's generation started leaving farming and toning down the number of kids to 2 or 3. A…
  • I have half a bagel occasionally. I don't think they are bad. Just like any food fit it in your goals in moderation.
  • I suppose it may be very common in some parts of the world to have cosmetic surgery and they just think it is normal to suggest? I would consider an unsolicited comment like that about my appearance coming from an acquaintance to be shockingly rude. I would probably just say I disagreed, was fine with my appearance and…
  • I haven't noticed negative effects of a fast food meal 2 hours after eating it. When I eat out I try to eat around the same calories (fat, protein and carbs) that I usually do that day. I prelog my food choices. I suppose it would be worth looking at if it was a vastly different amount of food, fiber, fat, carbs, sodium,…
  • When I started having symptoms I went to the doctor. I was told I was probably peri menopause but was also diagnosed with hypothyroidism. Starting medication for my thyroid helped with a lot of symptoms I was having. You might go get checked out to see if there is something more going on than peri menopause.
  • I regained my weight after developing a health problem and family problems. I was not unaware because I was stepping on the scale weekly but it was not the priority/focus to do something about it for awhile. I did not gain 25 lbs back in a week or a month. It was over the course of a year or 2. I think we need to throw out…
  • I think healthy means different things to different people so there really isn't THE HEALTHIEST CHICKEN RECIPE. For me healthy food is food that meets my nutritional needs. I don't have a medical reason to eat a very low sodium diet. I don't avoid fat either but am not frying chicken every day either. A simple grilled or…
  • Pasta and salad Zoodles with sauce, cooked chicken and mozzarella Eggs Sandwich or wrap Leftovers- soup reheats nicely
  • My kitchen is in a seperate room but has no door. It has plenty of cabinets and I am able to put food out of sight except a fruit bowl and bread loaf. It is a fairly large room so I sometimes end up walking through there when I walk around indoors. I think having other levels of the house to go to can be helpful at times…
  • I think they should wax instead. :D But really- if and when they want to is when any human should shave their legs.
  • That is the serving size if you plan to only eat 210 calories of pasta. You could eat more. My dinner is typically 500-600 calories so I'm not going to eat just that. Pair it with other foods like lots of low calorie vegetables or have the pasta as a side dish to meat. Or have enough calories left to increase the amount of…
  • Without further information on your stats, and calorie intake and how much you are walking no one could tell you. As others have said you lose weight when you burn more calories than you take in. If you are maintaing your weight currently, start walking every day and keep your calorie intake the same you may slowly lose…
  • A food scale is useful for learning what a portion size looks like for you when you don't have a scale too. I would concentrate on weighing the more calorie dense foods and worry less about being exact about everything unless your weight loss has stalled. Not logging a meal here and there perfectly will be okay. If you are…
  • Prelogging my food for the day helps me make sure I get enough protein. https://community.myfitnesspal.com/en/discussion/10247171/carbs-and-fats-are-cheap-heres-a-guide-to-getting-your-proteins-worth-fiber-also/p1
  • I think realizing I could eat my normal food just stick to the right calories was a pretty stunning revelation for me. I plan dinners for the month and cook every day. I tend to eat the same things for breakfast lunches or snacks so don't plan them out but don't really meal prep days in advance either. I do not eat kale…
  • 1. You are not required to eat any or all of them. You could give them away or toss them. 2. If you want to eat them, you can do so in a way that does not cause weight gain. You can have chocolate every day in small portions that fit your calorie goal. It might be something to look foward to each day. 3. If you eat all at…
  • Deviled eggs, raw vegetables, dip, olives Ham, mashed potatoes, baked beans Coconut cake We are not doing a special breakfast or anything else.
  • You'd be better off reading the sticked posts in the forums here. MFP gives you a calorie goal based on what you input as your stats, daily activity level and desired rate of loss. If you eat that amount of calories you should lose weight. The activity level is supposed to be without exercise and then you log exercise and…
  • Brown Eyed Girl by Van Morrison
  • I don't weigh myself more than once a day but saw this early this morning right after I woke up so thought I would try. I used the bathroom and peed. I weighed myself. I set a timer for 1 hour and poured a glass of plain water. The water weighed 292 g. I took one small pill and drank the glass of water. During the hour, I…
  • Weight loss is about calories not type of food so eating the right things would be eating the right number of calories. You can do whatever you want but you may not get the results you want if you exceed the calorie goal you were given. What does MFP tell you for a calorie goal? What rate of loss are you aiming for (lbs…
  • Underwear first, maybe socks, then pants. Sometimes pants then socks. I don't ever put on socks before all other clothes or take off socks last if I am removing all my clothes.
  • I don't like breakfast foods in the morning much so it doesn't really matter what I order. Maybe some kind of eggs or fruit.
