Diabetic desserts with stevia or not?
For Easter I am having my mother in law over who is diabetic. She has been having a really hard time controlling her blood sugars lately and unfortunately, her family is not very supportive when it comes to food. Every get together, which is quite often, they bring pizza, cake, soda, cookies, bread, and every other…
So I keep thinking wouldn't it be great to have an app where you can scan your food and it will give you the exact calories and nutritional composition without a barcode, measuring or looking it up?

Getting weaker running

I know that it just takes longer the closer you get to your goal, but I'm getting to a point where I am feeling like I will never get there. I have started eating, not super crazy,…
Breastfeeding and not losing weight at 1700 cals
I'm exclusively breastfeeding (my baby is 1 month old) and at 1700 calories a day. I'm 5'3" but I have been stuck at the same weight for a week now. I know this seems premature, but I was losing weight every few days before this at 1800 calories. What am I doing wrong?
