What food's calories have you been shocked by?
Was there a food that you looked up and were shocked at the amount of calories it contained? For me, it happened last night. I have those little 3 ounce bottles of Bailey's. They are 327 calories for that tiny little bottle. I knew they were bad, but I didn't know how bad... Ouch! But I'm glad I know now!
I'm happy to have found this group. I'm 5'6 and currently a little under 134. I'd like to lose another 5-10 pounds or so. I'm not heavy, but I still have a good amount of body fat. I guess you're all in a similar boat! Right now, I've been doing a lot of walking and running (and counting calories). My legs are getting…
Interesting blog post that helps bust that "Starvation Mode" myth
I just recently came upon this former NASA scientist Ray Cronise. (He apparently was featured in Tim Ferris's book The 4-Hour Body so you may have heard of him.)

What's your fave part about counting cals?

All my favorites - broccoli, cabbage, brussels sprouts, onions, kale - I believe are giving me digestive issues. :sad: I read this article about it. http://chriskresser.com/got-digestive-problems-take-it-easy-on-the-veggies I thought it was interesting. And…
Ladies - Hormone Question
Hi there! I was wondering if you ladies had the same hormonal issue as me. As the cycle goes on, around the 2nd or 3rd week, I get SUPER hungry. It's almost like I can't satisfy my hunger. It lasts for just a couple of days. If you have this issue too, how do you deal with it? Do you just go ahead and let the calorie…
Hi from Philly!
Hey everyone, I'm from the Philly area (actually, really close to Valley Forge if you're into the Revolutionary War and all), and my husband got me started on MyFitnessPal. I was using another tracker before, but this one is THE BEST. I'm almost addicted to it. I mostly track on my ipad, and I love it! Anyway, I rarely…
