  • Hi I am also 4'11". I do need more than 1600 calories when I do weightlifting to fuel my training, otherwise I will not be able to lift at the level I want.

  • I believe each person has to find what it works for you, at this particular moment, in your healthy journey. what works for me, may not work for you and vice versa I started increasing my protein intake when I started lifting weights. By default, the other macros had to decrease. It is your choice, your body and your…

  • @mjbnj0001 I have seen Skyr Icelandinc yogurt at Wegmans. Is there one nearby your home ?
  • @cpage86. Try another brand. I do check the table of contents for added sugar. My personal preference is for whole fat greek yogurt like @cmriverside . Not all greek yogurts taste the same. I prefer the Plain one and I add fresh fruit of the season or some mixed nuts.

  • I eat at least one boiled egg every morning, for breakfast. Sometimes 2 eggs. My cholesterol is just fine. I cooked the egg for 3 minutes, after water starts boiling. It is almost like as " over easy". whites are solid and the yolk edges but not 100%.
  • I use ACV to cook my black beans. Very tasty It does zero for weight loss
  • @PoeticDove I have GERD too. Medical doctor gave me some nutrition guidelines and medication. At the end, it is a lot of trial and error to find out which food is a trigger and which one is not I can still eat raw tomatoe but citric juices are out, for instance. Coffee has to be mixed with milk. Each person is different. I…
  • @lucypstacy Welcome to MFP. I found using a food scale with a tare button is invaluable in my weight management journey I can not "eyeball" portions. I ended up eating almost twice the calories I had eyeballed. And then I was wondering why my weight kept increasing. :o Utilizing a food scale can be an unpleasant surprise.…
  • @Fivefootcaloriecounter . welcome back we have been there and feel your pain. At the end, there is no "magic pill" that will keep weight down. It is just-sigh- calorie counting. Patience and persistence win the race Good luck in your healthy journey
  • I agree with @cross2bear . Do not try to achieve perfection. You will be a happier person. I use the target macros, as a target not as absolutely mandatory. I strive to meet my protein target for day I try to get my carbs from complex carbs ( i.e grains, vegetables, fruits ). Whatever is left, would be fat. I buy healthy…
