For someone just getting started, I really liked this site. It's too hard to have cookie cravings and try to figure out a menu at the same time... sigh...

Here are some of my favorite boards:
www.dietwatch.com this board lets you chart your daily nutrition, weight and excercise
www.dietitian.com has the healthy body calculator that calculates your idea weight and the calories needed to lose 1-2 pounds per week.
www.nutrio.com has a lot of information and has a fast food calorie and nutrition calculator. This is good for planning when you have to go out to eat.

Here's a great site that has a ACTIVITY CALORIE CALCULATOR

It will calculate the number of calories you could burn for 158 different activities. Fill in your weight and the average amount of time you spend working out and it does the rest!

If you have a scale like mine that only weighs in ounces, and a food that the quantity given per serving is in grams, here's a CONVERSION CHART that will help you figure out the ounces - I use the MASS AREA. Just click on the link below:

Drinking Green Tea speeds up your metabolism. 2 cups of green tea a day is the equivalent of walking 1 mile.

BEACH posted the information above on the percentages of fats, proteins and carbs that are recommended on SB. Here is the way to break it down so you can understand how many grams you should be consuming daily:


Each gram of fat is equal to 9 calories
Each gram of carbs is equal to 4 calories
Each grams of protein is equal to 4 calories

I consume 1200 calories a day, so I will use this as an EXAMPLE.

If you are consuming 1200 calories, and 30% is to come from fat, you would have a total of 360 calories (30% of 1200 is 360). You divide this 360 by 9 (because each fat grams is equal to 9 calories) and get 40 which is 40 grams of fat per day.

Protein at 30% would give you 360 calories, divide that by 4 and you have 90 grams of protein to take in.

Carbs are 40% and would give you 480 calories, divide that by 4 and you have 120 grams of carbs to take in.


Hope this information is helpful!!

Here's some great tips for eating during the holidays or at a social event:


Adopt a moderation mentality when holidays, special events, or other occasions approach. Here are some easy steps to get you started:

Step One - Get a grip on yourself ahead of time. Restate your commitment to improved health and long-term dietary success.

Step Two - Preplan holidays to reduce food temptations. Plan lower calorie meals. Preplan deviations from lowfat living. Adopt party training strategies.

Step Three - Don't risk going to any celebration thirsty and/or famished and never skip meals on the day of any big party. The combination of low blood sugar and hunger pains will force you straight to the buffet table. Eat a lower fat, higher protein breakfast. Have a tossed salad with lean meat or lowfat cheese and a whole grain roll for lunch. Munch an apple for a midafternoon snack. This defensive eating strategy will avoid unplanned, party binges.

Step Four - Make the choice to stay in control. This is the hardest step. Be ACTIVE rather than REACTIVE.

Step Five - If tempted, ask yourself this one little question. "Will I EVER have the opportunity to eat this food again?" That makes it easier to pass up ho-hum mashed potatoes, gravy, cheese, chips, and nuts.

Step Six - Completely avoid ANY food if you KNOW you won't be able to stop after one taste. Remember that your willpower to resist is strongest BEFORE the first bite.

Step Seven - What about goodies, gift trays, etc., received from others? First, acknowledge the giver's generosity and thank them for the thoughtful gift. If possible, tell them you will enjoy it later.

REMEMBER - Remember that YOU are in control. There is NO situation where a human has been tied up and force-fed fattening foods. Focus your attention and energies on family, friends and fellowship rather than food. The phase No, thank you," works wonders.

Do you get enough calcium??

The recommended daily intake should be 1000mg. If the milligrams are not given, yet a percentage is, to figure out the milligrams you are consuming, take the number given in percent, ie. 30%, and drop the percentage sign and add a 0 - this would give you 300mg - the amount of calcium per serving in the item you are eating.
