Cooking chicken breast with no oil
I have recently started tracking my macros instead of just my calories, and finding that my fat tends to be high and my protein low. So I'm adding more meat into my life after years of eating very, very little of it. I'm a good cook, but clueless about meat. What's your favorite way to cook skinless boneless chicken breast…
Hi! I'm brand-new to strength training, just a couple weeks in, and I just realized I have absolutely no soreness from back/shoulder/chest day yesterday. I definitely 'felt the burn' at the time, but today? Nothing. I should be able to feel it at least a little, right? I have definitely felt some soreness the day after my…
Happy Pride Month!!
It's June! Anybody doing anything fun for pride?
Why is bread the enemy?
I know that there are a lot of people who eat low carb, and I understand the various reasons for that, though I don't eat that way myself. But I feel like I'm always seeing people avoiding bread specifically without limiting other carbs or food made from processed grains. What's the reason for this? Why do so many people…
Sodium and headaches

I have definitely read that a high-sodium diet can be a factor in recurring headaches, but could a single high-sodium…
Tracking calories burnt on treadmill

The problem is that I don't know how to track my calories burnt when I use a treadmill. Obviously that doesn't affect my progression toward my running goal, but I would like to know what I'm burning so I…
Hi, I'm new!
Hey everyone! I'm Jay! The easiest way to describe my orientation and gender is by saying I'm queer and genderqueer. I don't have a strong preference on pronouns but my closest friends usually use "they". I love when people call me "ma'am". MFP uses masculine pronouns for me which I don't really like seeing all the time,…
I love reading everyone's NSVs, but sometimes I wanna brag about the number on my scale! What's your scale telling you that you want to share with the class?
How often do you weigh?
I just started MFP yesterday, and weighed myself for the first time in about three years. I weighed about 20 pounds less than I expected, which was a nice surprise, but I still have a long way to go. I'm feeling pretty optimistic about food and exercise, but I'm not sure how often I should weigh myself. I don't want to…
