  • Can you get your medication made to measure? Some pharmacies in some countries provide such medication in tiny amounts lower every x days/weeks to wean them off.
  • So you are on track with having lost 0.5lbs per week. That's the highest you should go with so little to lose. And yeah, it's going to be very slow. The heavier you are the bigger your calorie deficit can be and the faster the weightloss.
  • It really won't do anything for weightloss. The only benefit might be that you're more flexible due to the heat. On the downside you might even burn less calories because it's too hot and you're not giving your everything and not going on as long as you'd do with normal temperatures. But on the other hand, yoga doesn't…

  • The most important things that make you lose weight is eating less calories, thus being in a calorie deficit, and being consistent and patient. There will always be days where the scale will go up a bit again; especially if you're a woman of menstruating age. Thus patience, consistency, and no panic. Hey, with just 30lbs…

Still didn't go too well, but today were pace repeats anyway (short intervals with faster steps). So basically.. I ran. Next run will be slower and longer I hope, and…

So that was totally worth it.…
  • Found it! Had to stop running last month and didn't manage the 60km I'd set myself. Oh well.. here we go again. 01.06. 5.52km at 8:09min/km 02.06. 3.00km at 7:46min/km 8.52/60km The run yesterday just went well, and it was so relaxed and easy to run. Today things didn't go so well, but I was faster, and had somewhat sore…
  • Can we have a new thead? <3
  • It doesn't matter what you eat as long as your food keeps you happy, healthy and full. All that is important is being in a calorie deficit for weight loss. And lots of patient. Eating at maintenance or a calorie surplus doesn't lead to weight loss, regardless of what you eat. And giving up after a too short amount of time…

  • Hi there, I don't know what bookie riding is, but it's great that you want to become fitter. Do you have any medical conditions that will make moving more difficult for you? Are you also overweight?

  • Those devices that don't have a dedicated GPS chip usually require a phone to be brought along so that the phone gps can be used for recording routes/measuing distance/elevation/etc. If you chose a device with onboard gps you should be fine.
  • Hey, you're doing well! You've lost possibly around 10lbs in 3 weeks? that's massive! The maximum loss goal MFP will give you is 2lbs per week, and you've lost 3 per week. So what's wrong with that? So well done! Also, there are a few things to consider: * you started exercising. Exercising, or rather muscle healing leads…
  • What kind of food do you enjoy eating, and what absolutely not? Is there some preparation method you could try, or absolutely don't like?
  • I guess i'm doing some kind of fasting as I don't eat between 20:00 and around 10:00. But I only managed to not eat so late in the morning if I'm doing home office and sitting behind my desk. If I were to workout on an empty stomach I would feel faint, miserable, dizzy, then eat everything I have at home.
  • Hope you're doing fine. Just to add on the whoosh: I just came out of a whoosh (I hope!). Lost more than 2kg of water after two more than 8 hour trips by train, with a city trip inbetween, followed by lots of long sitting meetings at work. The night before yesterday I actually woke up 4 times to go to the loo. This night…
  • Apart from above: You'd need to be able to define your own threshold somehow, and make sure the sun hits the watch the same way. Say you cycle with a flat bar: Your watch might get more sun exposure (unless it's behind you) than with a race bike. I was thinking about the same as I at times just need 15 minutes to get…
  • And now it's cold and mouldy :D

  • well, that's a quick give up! Over a simple latte that's probably comparable to other lattes worldwide. Expectation management: Yes, the database is user sources. There's no way any company could pull the nutritional information of any obscure chain or shop worldwide out of thin air. If it's not in the database then no…
  • That might be true, but eating the same amount of food, the fat gets redistributed from elsewhere to the midsection, and not piled on additionally. As stated above, metabolism simply breaks down once you hit 40/45/50. actual weight gain is related to moving less, eating more, even fidgetting less has an effect of calorie…
  • The database is largely user soured. That means whatever is in there was added by users. Now, coffee#1 is a rather inconvenient name for searching a database with. if you were to search for items from Tesco then things would look a lot different. Why not try searching for the actual item you're after, and possibly try to…
  • Makes no sense as rice is usually eaten cooked. Like others above have mentioned: weighing dry is more precise as the weight of cooked rice depends on how much water was absorbed. On the other hand, this might make sense if a big pot of rice is on the table and several people help themselves.

  • May I ask a question that's a bit confrontational: Is there a medical question you're on low carb? If not, this might not be the way to eat for you if you think it's repetitive. Maybe avocado and nut salad or something along the lines?

  • I hardly eat red meat. Not because I think it causes any health problems but because I don't eat a lot of meat to start with, and chicken fits my style of cooking better. What kind of issues do you think you have related to red meat?

  • Pretty much everyone. Garmins have some function that automatically detects running, walking and cycling, and I think elliptical after a few minutes of activity, and logs it as such. Though it does go wrong every now and then. I've switched it off on my device as it doesn't add anything for me, but it might be exactly what…
  • How big are the differences? Every app and device uses different algorithms with different sensitivities. None are perfect. Some work for you, some don't. Some are too sensitive for your way of movement, others might not notice it. So I suggest you just use one thing, possibly one in the middle of the range of steps, and…

  • Actually, I got a very odd tin of food yesterday: Tinned, cut tomatoes in own juice. 400gr. Drained weight: 260gr. Those tins are ALWAYS 400gr :D
