Hi Naomi1 - always nice to have someone else start the same time as you.
Thanks for the welcome SeeMyFeet, skinnyki and Changergirl. I agree, IP is just too extreme (and expensive) but I did learn a lot about protein vs carbs etc. I am a strong believer that it's NOT fat, but carbs, that is the true evil for healthy weight. Especially the highly processed stuff. Naomi, I also find that if you're eating more carbs, you get hungrier much faster.
I use My Fitness Pal - it's such a great app and easy to use. They have a huge data base of foods. But I think this forum is better for support and accountability.
Today I have 690 calories left for dinner, so I should be good!
