            No problem! FYI, I have my bootcampers weigh in on Mondays because then they don't act a fool over the weekend, muahahaha!

                moonpalace, you are pure evil.... I LIKE IT :) kidding girls!

                There is a sticky called Biggest Loser 7 at the top of this section, the first page has the general rules that will apply to this season as well!

                I'm thinking that we start somewhere between January 11th-15th, depending on which day we choose as our weigh-in day! How would that work for people? A little time to get over the holiday rush :)

                  Tasha - I think we keep it at Wednesday if that's what it has always been! So whatever the 2nd Wed in January is I guess?

                      You guys and your Wednesdays.... Here's my 2 best eating tips for losing weight, which will work HANDS DOWN.

                      1) Cut starchy foods out. Potatoes, breads, pastas, yadda yadda yadda.

                      2) Stop drinking your calories! Pops, JUICES, sugary coffees, *ahem* alcohol *ahem* etc.

                      Do this as much as possible! By doing this you'll reset your blood glucose levels, stopping sugar and carb cravings within a couple days.

                      Starches turn to sugar almost instantly when you digest them, same with sugar (duh). Too much sugar messes with your insulin levels, which sends the wrong messages to your brain and causes your body to tell you to eat more starches and sugars, then you crash and you never actually use the proper macronutrients (low-glycemic carbs, fats and proteins). So your body will never run smoothly like a fine-tuned machine.

                      Don't get me wrong, carbs are THE ONLY thing that fuels your brain so you absolutely can't cut them out. You'll just get them from better sources, like dark rich veggies!

                      If you follow history, right when the government declared fat and cholesterol the most dangerous foods (which they ARE NOT!), people started loading up the starches. At the exact same time, Type 2 diabetes rose and rose and rose and has hit this crazy level that it's at today!

                      Think about it, when you eat pizza what's the best part? The toppings! The crust has little to no taste, minus spices. Eat the toppings instead of the pizza! Same thing with pasta. CHEESE IS OK PEOPLE! In moderation of course, don't eat a whole block at a time...!!

                      If you're not aware, a healthy diet is 70% of your weight loss battle. Exercise is an added bonus to keep your metabolism higher!

                      Sorry for the preachy mcpreacherness, but if you can try to cut those 2 things out, you will barely need to count calories because your body will efficiently use everything that you put into it. You won't have mindless eating problems!

                      (Emotional eating is another issue altogether, perhaps I'll address it in another rant :P )
