  • If you haven't gained weight it's pretty likely you haven't gained belly fat.
  • One thing to consider here is that the basic BMI chart doesn't take age into account or ethnicity...it's sort of all encompassing. I use this: https://www.smartbmicalculator.com/ At my current weight (198) I am considered slightly to moderately overweight with this calculator...obese with regular BMI. At my normal…
  • You need to be eating 500-1000 calories per day above your maintenance requirements consistently to gain the kind of weight you need to gain. It's great that you want to put on muscle, but I'd say right now isn't the time to make that a primary concern...you need to put on weight period. Hitting the gym and any exercise…
  • weight room over lunch. i'll probably spend an hour or so this evening playing in the pool with the boys.
  • This is primarily a tracking site and can help diabetics for sure track what they're doing, but MFP doesn't have diabetic specific plan or recommendations. My guess is that would be a liability as MFP isn't a licensed medical site or anything. The ADA website is a great place to start if you can't get a referral to a…

  • In the show's pilot a narrator says, "let's take take them back to their home in the Ozarks and see how this whole thing got started." Paul Henning, the show's creator was also from Missouri. I'm not weird or anything, I only know this because my 93y.o. grandmother owns the entire series and as a good grandson I've sat…
  • You are logging your exercise which in turn gives you more calories. Your macros make up your calories, so they would also go up in grams, but the overall % of the whole would stay the same. Your macros make up your calories...1 gram carb = 4 calories, 1 gram protein = 4 calories, 1 gram dietary fat = 9 calories.
  • There is no such thing as good or bad dietary cholesterol, there's just cholesterol. Dietary cholesterol is actually pretty irrelevant to blood serum levels. There are good and bad cholesterol as it relates to blood work...ie LDL and HDL cholesterol. These blood serum levels are more closely correlated to what types of…
  • Most of what I cook isn't any kind of "recipe" or require any particularly great cooking skills. Usually some kind of protein that is seasoned or marinated with whatever I feel like at that particular moment...usually grilled or in the case of fish just a quick pan fry. Some kind of veg usually saluted or roasted, and some…
  • I've been on here for a decade, but I've never gotten that high. When I kept a diary I was pretty consistently on here daily, but I haven't logged since April 2013...I'm on here most days during the week, but depending on what's going on for the weekend I may or may not get on. I also don't get on when I'm on vacation and…
  • I go to the gym during my lunch hour...my only ritual is to change clothes and send an email to my subordinates that I'm going to the gym.
  • For the vast majority of people, dietary cholesterol has no correlation to blood level serum levels. This is a quite old way of thinking. Your liver produces cholesterol as it is a necessary nutrient...when you consume more dietary cholesterol your liver produces less...when you consume less dietary cholesterol your liver…
  • It is primarily a calorie counting site...so it can be used to lose weight, maintain weight, or gain weight. And yes, the vast majority of the population that calorie counts does so to lose weight. I personally only use it for the community as I haven't counted calories in years.
  • You can update it, but make sure you're actually looking at what you think you're looking at. 480 on the package could possibly be for the entire package which may actually be two servings which would be pretty close (within 20 calories). It is also possible that the packaging label has changed since it was entered into…
  • "Soft tissue injury" is pretty vague and encompasses numerous things from sprains to strains and pulls and contusions to bursitis, etc. The amount of time it takes to heal would depend on what the more specific injury is. Observationally it would appear to me the most common knee injuries outside of actual damage to…
  • The adjustment you get in MFP is just a reconciliation between the activity level you set in MFP and your actual activity per device...not specifically for "active calories"...that is more for you information purposes for your device. There is a certain amount of daily activity already included in your activity level and…
  • Quick 10 mile lunch ride.
  • With it being summer and my wife and I watching less TV it's nice to find a good 20 minute option to watch before going to bed. They are few and far between with so many shows being of the hour variety. We spend a lot of time outside on the patio or in the pool or hot tub or just out and about this time of year so we…
  • I 2nd getting a trend app.
  • I'm a little confused...I would just track what I ate for each 24 hour period. When I worked nights I still ate three meals per day, the timing was just different from a traditional schedule. I also ate the same things working overnights as I do working a traditional schedule. In a given 24 hour period mine looked pretty…
  • Yup...MFP doesn't populate the database, it's crowdsourced
  • Yes, that would mean your activity level is actually not the same as it has been...you've increased activity.
  • I would start with baby steps. You aren't just going to become this super awesome fit person overnight. Your exercise doesn't have to be high impact or strenuous...in fact, anything like that should be undertaken after building up a good base level of fitness, and even then those things should be side dish and not the main…
  • These devices don't send over the calories for your exercise, they send an adjustment to reconcile your activity level you selected in MFP to your actual activity level per your device. Even an activity level of sedentary is going to include some movement...typically up to about 5,000 steps so some of those 438 calories…
  • You can't target fat loss with exercise. You just have to lose weight in general. Your genetics determine where you store fat first and where it comes off first or last. Primary fat stores are a first on, last off kind of thing.
  • primarily your cardiovascular system, legs, and glutes
