|Motivation||Belly Weight||May 30 2011
I know this is off topic, but the correct phrase is "eating fewer calories" not less. If something is count-able, the terms should be greater or fewer, such as calories. If you can't count something, like water, the words are more or less.
So.... I am working to drink more water and eat fewer calories. I gain weight when I drink less water and eat a greater number of calories. :) I know this is doofy, but it's just one of those little things that makes me nutty when used incorrectly.
Apologies for the interruption....
|Foods||Is white flour really that bad?||May 10 2011
I think the key is to test how your body reacts to white flour. For me, it's like taking a sedative. If I have a bunch of bread or pizza then I feel like falling asleep afterwards. My friend Annette is gluten intolerant and she gets allergy symptoms. Because I get sleepy, I simply avoid white flour products unless it's in the evening or it's a day when I can afford to take a nap. The way to test how you are with this or any other ingredient is to stay completely away from it for a week. Then have a day when you have a lot of it. See how you feel when you re-introduce the food. If your body likes it, you won't notice any ill effects on the re-introduction day. If it doesn't, you'll know pretty darn quick.

|Young Calorie Counters||My Life Sucks. Can Anyone Help...: c||Dec 21 2010
When I was going through a rough time (post-divorce, economic crash, weight gain, etc), I found a therapist that was a huge help to me. But one of the greatest things was that she made CD's for me to listen to as I went to sleep that really helped change the way I viewed things. It is now 10 years later, she now has them online, and I still listen to them when I hit a rough patch. I recommend you take a look at "weight mastery", "Super self-esteem" and "finding the real you". They really help me and may be good for you too. http://www.zoilitagrant.com/products/cds.htm& nbsp;
Best of luck,
