Have you successfully reduced your cholesterol levels through diet (and exercise?)
Morning! So my mother has been told to take statins as her cholesterol levels are high, around 7. She’s 74yo around 5ft4 and probably weighs in the region of 10.5st. She doesn’t like the idea of taking statins and had tried but not got on with Atorvostatin. So I said well, you’ll have to try and manage it by diet &…
Zwift / Garmin Connect / MFP
Hi folks. Wondering if anyone else has the same problem today? I have my Zwift account linked to Strava and Garmin Connect, then my Garmin Connect account linked to MFP. Normally the Zwift workout shows in the Garmin app and the exercise shows in MFP with a calorie burn. Tonight no activity has posted to Garmin, only to…
Garmin Connect “Training Effect”
Hoping some fellow Garmin users can enlighten me... Last night my friend showed me that in her Activity details in the Garmin Connect App, she had two circles in the “Training Effect” section of the activity analysis. One for Aerobic and one for Anaerobic. I have only ever had one for Aerobic. I do a lot more training and…
Hi Swimmers... I am really keen to book a Swimtrek (or similar) holiday but aware that my swimming is not yet at the right level of endurance. Most of the 6-day trips are around 5km daily swimming split into 2 swims. I have done a 5km river swim a few years ago, I swim usually just twice a week as I am training for my…

iPhone Steps Adjustment
I’m sorry if this has already been answered but it’s been bugging me years and I haven’t seen it addressed... I have the iPhone steps counter linked to MFP so I get extra calories for steps taken. Great! Except for on days that I exercise. Then I get none. Even if the exercise is swimming for example. I know that it…
Jacket Potato with Cheese & Beans
So, I am out to lunch today at a local cafe so I wanted to pre-log this. Have you seen how much the calories vary! Obviously I understand how they can - size of potato, portion size of beans & of the highly calorific cheese plus whether it's full sugar beans and full fat cheese or not - but when it's from a cafe so you…
Anyone got the link to that video...?
The one where the guy compares two tables of food that look the same but then shows there's a massive difference in the calories of each? I tried searching on here, Google and YouTube but can't seem to get to it. Thanks!
Proats (Protein Oats) how not to end up with scrambled egg goop
Hi folks. Can anyone give me advice on how to use protein powder to make hot "proats" (protein & oats)? I have tried a few times and ended up with a nasty scrambled egg textured mess both when adding powder before microwaving the oats and also adding it after cooking the oats. Do some whey powders work better than others…
