You enter the name of a food, then click on that food, and it comes up in your food diary with the calories it consumed. You can set a daily calorie goal.

No...I think you ought to rule out Weight Watchers or NutriSystem, etc. They don't work. Diets don't work. (Diet is just the word "die," with a T at the end, girl.) You need to change your overall eating style so what happened once to you doesn't happen again. You need to learn to eat right--but not just for losing weight. Let me ask you: what do you think will happen if I eat REALLLLY HEALTHY and lose 40 pounds and then go back to my normal junk food or over-eating self? I will gain it all (and more) back.
Your mom can help you out on the track to eating healthy for always.
Hope this helped, ^_^

Ht. 5'7, Wt. s:185 c:154 g:160 - Hey guys! Well i just wanted to share some healthy snack ideas. They are ssoo good!! Ok, first, take a can of mandarin oranges and drain it. Then spread them out on a plate, and cover it with plastic wrap. Then freeze it overnight or for 3ish hours until they are completely frozen. You can also try this with cherries, grapes, or any other one of your favorite fruits. Sooo good. It almost tastes like a popsicle! Good luck and enjoy! ~x*Celeste*x

Ht. 5' 3'', Wt. 130 - One of my tips for losing weight is..... When you start to think that your hungery but you know that you're not chew sugar-free gum. It makes you feel like you're eating something and you're really not. It also freshens your breath.

I was just watching tv the other day and i saw this documentry about fast food and our health. i learned that cutting mayo from your hamburger can save you 23 grams of fat and 260 calories, and with out cheese it also saves you 11 grams of fat and 70 calories. so with out either of those a hamburger with fat free condiments s ok once in a while, with only 18 grams of fat and 290 calories (still isn't the best but look how much u can cut out). Also the salads searved from fast food restraunts, aren't that great and sometimes a hamburger can be a better choice. Especially the atkins salads, or anything with bacon-they are quite high in fat, even tho stated to have less carbs. Also some people think chicken burgers are better, and they are in most cases, btu burger kings chicken seems to have the most fat, and a hamburger with no mayo and cheese is a better choice. Just though I would share what i learned as i found it pretty suprising and interesting.

I honestly hope this doesn't offend anybody but I think that Americans are a whole lot fatter than Canadians. I think this because there is so much fast food in America and not nearly as much as fast food as in Canada. i also saw a survey thing and it said 40% of Americans are overweight and kids aged 5-19 are 87% overweight while canadians are only 16% overweight and kids aged 5-19 are only 8% overweight. I know there is more people in America than Canada but still thats like Half of america overweight. I am not trying to insult anybody or say they are fat because they are Americans I am trying to say that they promote more fast food than ever before. Do you know Americans have over 667 different fast food chains?!??? THAT IS UNBELIEVABLE! Canada has 121! I love America and when I used to go down there I would order a meal and it would come like it was for 5 people!!! Here in Canada... (view more)

just teel the teacher that you don't want to be weighted in front of the class. I do the same thing. There is no way that you can lose more than a pound in a week.
