Hi there, Does anyone here have experience with the disorder? In simple terms, it is an inflammation or infection in one or more small pouches in the digestive tract. It is also a chronic disease. I was diagnosed with it last Friday after horrible abdominal pain and a CAT scan. I was put on Flagyl and Cipro antibiotics, x3…
Please help me with a question I have
So I just got off a week of stalled weight loss. Before that happened, I gained a pound or so, and it wouldn't leave. Eventually, I got frustrated and decided life was too short to be stressed. So I proceeded to eat like I was starving over Easter and that continued Monday. Today I saw that I was down 3lbs?? I checked two…
My weight chart over the last 4 years
is pathetic. I don't know how to do maintenance. To me, losing weight is intuitive. There's restriction, rules to follow, exercise a whole bunch and so on. Only when it comes to maintenance, I haven't got a clue. I need a lot of help with that. How does one do maintenance? I'm approaching that particular time now. I'm 158…
High Fat Macro
Often when I eat a lot of healthy fats, such as nuts, avocado and goat cheese my fat can end up being about 40% of what I eat or even above. I'm not sure if that's ideal or not. My dairy is open. I'm a vegetarian, so a lot of protein sources have fat in them. I don't eat fast food or fried foods or anything like that. I…
Guesses on this phenomenon?
Hi there! Okay, I'm a 36-year-old male, 5'10" about 165 lbs right now. I want to lose about 15 more pounds or so. Then I might try to gain muscle. First things first, however. For about six weeks I ate 1250 or so with a cheat day once a week. I lost 20+ lbs doing that. However I was starving, so I decided to up my calories…
Plateaus and Calorie in and Calorie Out
So I'm trying to reconcile these two phenomena with each other. Last week I hit a plateau, after losing weight at a steady pace. I had recently increased my calories so I would lose weight at a slower rate but I didn't want it to stop. I was warned a plateau or even a gain might happen, but it was still disconcerting. I…
Changing from losing 2 lbs a week to .5 lbs a week
I just changed my weight loss goal from 2 lbs a week to .5 lbs a week. I decided it's time to take a less aggressive approach after I lost 20 lbs in about six weeks. I have about 15 lbs to go until I'm BMI 22, and I would like these pounds to stay off. I have heard, the slower I go, the less chance I have of gaining it all…
Women, what should a man eat (or not) on the first date?
Hi- I'm going on my first date with a new lady and I don't know what to order. I don't know exactly where we are going, but I'm asking not necessarily in regards to calories but more in regards to what I "should eat." Like what looks better- a salad or a burger? Thanks!
Mental Block Problems concerning calories
So here it is, on the second or third day of January, I started a diet and so far I've lost 18 lbs. That's good, right? It is, but I'm worried that's too much. I'm now at a so-called healthy weight of 170.8 at 5'10". (the avatar is no longer accurate) I still want to lose another 20 lbs to get to 150 lbs which is where…
Running 10K everyday to extreme?
Hi, I've done this before, I know it's not impossible, but that was 30lbs ago. This last year due to surgery and other stresses I've gained a bunch of weight. It feels just wrong on my body, so I have a lot of motivation to exercise. I'm wondering if I start running 10Ks again every day if I'm going to destroy my knees or…
