Counting Calories

Recommended Posts

I use a website called Fitday. It's got a huge bank of foods and you can create your own profile and foods so that foods you eat often and that might not be in the bank. Here's a link to it...it is helpful to know what you're eating and it definitely has made me feel more conscious of what I put in my mouth. It is also gives you a breakdown of the percentages of vitamins, minerals, carbs, proteins, and fats that you're eating so you can see if your diet is balanced.




In terms of the eating program I follow, I've lost 30 pounds this year, I eat clean foods...lots of fruits and veggies, one large salad with at least four colours each day, no dairy (upon recommendation from my nutritionist), lean protein, nuts, sprouted grain cereals and breads, whole wheat pasta and brown rice. Make sure to drink tons of water...no such thing as too much and good luck!

I had gotten to a weight that I liked, so I stopped counting the points but kept in mind portions and eating more fruits/veggies.

It has only been in the last few months that I have gained back some of the weight (about 10 pounds) and have had trouble getting it off. I'm having to travel a lot for work through April, and doing the points has been really hard lately because I'm forced to eat out more than I'd like.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
