  • hmmm , I don't think that it was said that all sugar is bad. Fructose such as in high fructose corn syrup is bad because of the way it has to be metabolized.
  • Quote: Buddy???? " ja das ist lustig" (yes that is funny) . ????? oh yeah , really? Maybe you should watch it before you judge it? I am not quite sure why people seem to feel free to ridicule other people's posts just because they may not 100% agree with what they say. I happen to agree with what is said in this lecture…
  • there is an interesting lecture at a medical school about sugar on you tube. You may want to watch it . There is your scientific evidence that sugar can be very bad and actually toxic for you depending on what KIND of sugar you consume and how it occurs. The lecturer addresses the fact how sugar can lead to obesity and…
  • thanks for sharing very interesting.
  • I used to make it as breakfast but it could be made as a quick small dinner for the kids too if they are not too hungry: take a whole wheat tortilla, spread some peanut butter (or almond butter on it) roll a banana in it. Of course you can also just put veggies in there and hummus instead of peanut butter..
  • Congrats on your 4 miles. I am proud of you and you should be proud of yourself too. The comment really shows how small minded and stupid those people are and one day they will reap what they sowed. You may not be around to see it but they will. The other day I just pondered the fact why so many people in our society think…
  • wow thank you so much for sharing this. You are an inspiration
  • {Hugs}. Yes,kids will push you over the edge sometimes. I have learned today that we make several thousand food decisions a week, so really, a couple of bad ones will not undo your success. As long as you are getting up, dusting yourself off and moving on into the right direction. You have been working so hard on your…
  • I'm down 30 pounds and some people say they can tell, but I still can't see a difference despite having dropped a couple of sizes :( . But I have a lot of weight to lose.
  • Tin foil conspiracy very funny.... It would be nice to be able to voice your opinion on these forums without being made fun of.
  • I agree to some extent, yes our bodies do work different, and both diets can be healthy. I do believe that the China study is quite valid as well as many of the studies such as the ones that PCRM and many others conducted. Of course these studies were smaller, these people didn't have the money big pharma and big food…
  • I am in the same boat as you . I was told to reduce fatty foods , of course no alcohol (I don't drink anyway). and to lose weight, reduce cholesterol, exercise regularly. Take care , hope all goes well.
  • yeah, eat to live author Dr Fuhrman, MD know a lot less about nutrition than you do I am sure. The China study has been peer reviewed, so have many other studies. OP, if you go to the web site of the pcrm.org (Physicians' Committee for responsible Medicine) it has some good info , its sister site Nutritionmd.org has also…
  • I had to learn that the weight loss journey won't be perfect and that I will have better and worse days. On worse days I will have to forgive myself, dust myself off and move on, not give up.
  • I have tried the applesauce instead of oil which works well. Pumpkin instead of oil/eggs worked also in cake mixes. (But i am not a good baker, so you may have to experiment in with your own recipes) . There is a good web site that has very good recipes that are lightened up www.skinnytaste.com. She has amazing muffins and…
  • Medifast is a good program. It was/is used by many physicians but it is very strict and calorie controlled. It works quite well and there is a transition phase that helps you transition into "normal food". Many people have lost with it and kept it off , many people have fallen off the wagon just like here. I find it very…
  • I think you need to find some time to have some kind of a lunch break. I have been in your shoes, 60 hour work weeks are not fun and I was in the same boat as you. I am now paying big time because I neglected my health a during a period in my life when I felt I could handle all these hours and neglected my my own welfare…
  • I think Whole Food has the Shirataki noodles in the fridge where the tofu is located. I have also found them in the Asian store. I love them too. I have never tried the Miracle noodles, not sure if they are different. I usually I rinse the Shirataki noodles with hot water , stir fry them with onions and mushrooms (…
  • I love my Flex. It syncs well with MFP , my phone and computer. Seems to be pretty accurate; I had to change the setting to wearing it on my dominant hand (though I keep it on my non-dominant hand ) as it seemed to track too much movement (for ex. when I was driving it counted some steps) . When I looked through the online…
  • almond milk for shakes. Its s good snack or quick breakfast and you can add whatever fruits you have on hand
  • you need to make your needs known if at all possible. If you need healthy food you need to tell the people living with you that you need this for yourself . Eating healthy does not have to be expensive. I live with a husband and five kids, all of them really could care less about my weight loss effort, so I decided i will…
  • Don't get discouraged. This rate is actually healthy. Take your measurements and pictures as you progress. The scale will not tell you everything. You may drop inches before you drop weight.
  • I am so sorry you are struggling with chocolate right now. I can relate all too well. For me it was the empty carbs as in white breads, pasta etc. Like one poster said before you might get your blood sugar checked and get tested for diabetes if you could be at risk for that. I have learned that I just need to keep some…
  • oh I love France it is so beautiful. I have to agree with the previous poster. I have not seen the workout but from what I have read on the boards it seems to be pretty intense. So I would suggest also to up the calories a little to see if that helps. The other thing I wanted to mention is that if you have very little to…

  • I'm not totally vegan yet, but I eat mostly vegan and I live in Oklahoma. Depending on where you are, if you have a Sprouts Market near you you could have pretty good options there or , like others said, a farmers market. Asian or Mexican food stores have a pretty good selection of some vegan foods as well. These are the…
  • Quote: "i'm just very terrified of it, because a nurse told me it's dangerous to take, and has killed people..." Adipex has also helped a lot of people. Yes if you have heart problems and high BP then it is probably not a good idea, but your physician can determine if that medication is suitable for you. I'm not a…
  • It is pretty overwhelming when you have a long road ahead of you. Like others said one step at a time and if you slip get up and keep on going. There will be obstacles and it won't be easy but you can do it. When I feel like I can't do it, I go to the success board and look at before and after pictures. You will see…
  • I would definitely talk to the doctor. If you want to bump up your calories you could drink some of your calories in the form of juices or shakes maybe? Take care of yourself. I hope you feel better soon.
  • can I join you too? I would love to give it a try. I have still quite a ways to go and I could use some motivation and buddies. I'm 5'4" last week's weigh in was 248.2. I can update my weight in Thursday. Good luck everyone.
