Thanks for a great article. I have yet to meet my calories after a month of trying. I didn't know that for years my normal diet rangef between 500 - 800 calories a day. You'd think I'd be thin but I've actually gained to the point I joined SparkPeople. Here I'm watching calories for the first time. I'm trying to reach at least 1500 but haven't done it yet. I will, tho! Thanks, again!
This is when more is better, SparkFriends. Who doesn't want more?!?!?!
My Dr. told me to lose more weight, even tho I only weigh 155, to ward off diabetics. I find it hard to lose weight even staying within the range of 1200 a day like she asked me to do.
Thanks for the great article! :)
Some days are harder than others getting my calories in. I usually end up with at least a hundred or so calories shy of my range,
There is good advice besides history of experience here.
For me this discussion as others I have seen most common is funny. I understand it is needed by the majority, but I never intend to become normal. I was raised with mostly organic fruit and vegetables, meat less than once a month and very little of the most dangerous addictive drug in the world - sugar.
During some years as a teenager and military life I became addicted to sugar, but ate mostly healthy food and had exercise with my normal work. I did gain some weight, but never above normal because I was always slender anyway. Since then, my weight has not changed 5 lbs in 50 years.
DON'T EAT JUNK !
Thx forr the share!
Some interesting ideas!
