|Weight Loss||seriously weird eating habbits||Jul 10 2012
Try brushing your teeth before you eat anything. I find the mint taste pretty much ruins my craving for anything else. Plus your dentist will be thrilled
|Books||what is the worst book you've EVER read?||Jul 01 2012
Here's one for you -
"A Meal to Die For" by Joseph R. Gannascoli (better known as Vito on The Sopranos.) I couldn't even get past page 5. Glad I bought it at a 2nd hand store.
|Books||What's your favorite Poem||Jul 01 2012
There are so many poems that I love and visit often.
Seamus Heaney: "The Follower" and this next one because it hits so close to home.
I sat all morning in the college sick bay
John Donne: "Holy Sonnet 10"
Alfred, Lord Tennyson: "The Lady of Shalott"

|Weight Loss||One Week at Calorie Count and My Best loss for a week||Jun 28 2012
Wow! That is fantastic! You have every right to be proud of yourself. I'm sure it took a lot of hard work (physically and emotionally) to get through this past week. Reading your post this morning has certainly lightened MY spirit.
Ditto renekane - very nicely written!
|Weight Loss||iron..||Jun 26 2012
I also have a difficult time keeping my iron level up. I found Plantation Blackstrap Unsulphured molasses has 20% of iron RDA. House of Herbs molasses is even higher.
I also just found that Grape Nuts nuggets and Fiber One Honey Clusters have a whopping 90% of RDA iron. (plus I get a good fiber boost from Fiber One).
|Weight Loss||The amazing "eat a realistic amount, exercise and have patience" diet!||Jun 25 2012
Your point is well made, and I agree with you. You can't look for a magic bullet with weight loss. So now I'm wondering. If the Calorie Count website encourages sensible weight management (in my case - loss), why does it accept advertisements that push that magic bullet. As I was logging my dinner, I noticed an ad on the right side for "Cambridge Diet.' Curious, I clicked, read an intro and this is what is said:
" Is there anyone who can't lose weight on Cambridge products?
ONLY 420 CALORIES PER DAY!?!?! WHAT??????
Is this hypocritical of the CC website? Do they screen their sponsors? What sort of message does this send?
Perhaps this is one source of those "undereating" posts that frustrate you.
Thanks for reminding me that I didn't gain this weight in a week - I can't lose it in aa week.
