Easy everyone! Deep breathes and as my buddy says when things get heated ELE (Everbody Love Everybody) LOL

We all are trying to do the same thing... We should try to support one another rather than get this upset, it makes me sad for some reason! We all have enough challenges with dealing with weight and for some of us obesity...

I have to say though, I always thought my different lifestyle was part of my weight troubles, but.... I need to look more into hormonal connections, I am Newley diagnosed with endometriosis, and have struggled with serious "Women Issues" most of my life, have had to have an ablation recently, wonder of there is a connection?

I too am finding I don't feel hungry.. As an almost paramedic they put me at moderately active with 1500 calories to use, but I often use 1200 maybe.
My ratio is 10/45/45 but I'm SUPPOSED to eat almost 1900 calories. I just hardly ever make it that high. My protein listed on myfitnesspal for that ratio is actually I think 206, but I used a minimum protein level calculator and it said I should eat 197g in order to not lose muscle.

I just looked on MFP at my protein because I noticed a while ago I was going over most days, I am also at 1200 for a calorie goal and MFP gave me a goal of 60 for protein, I am closer to 70-75 most days and hit 90 something one day, I did not adjust the MFP goal, where did you all get your protien goal numbers from?

I think the issue arises when you basically call me a liar and dismiss some very real issues people have losing weight. Its like you have it out for me, and those like me. I am tired of it and it seems others are too. I am glad what is working for you works for you, but its a little short sighted to assume it will work for everyone.

I am saddened as I would have thought you would know me and accord me with the respect of trusting me to not lie about my weight issues. Its hard enough to be honest and let everyone 'see' one's struggles, but to basically have someone you previously trusted and liked insinuates repeatedly that you are lying is very hurtful. As is the constant dismissing those issues (which are not all that uncommon it seems) and saying its so easy just do 'this' is extremely upsetting when you have done 'this' for years...
I'd like to be shown, if possible or have it explained where I called you a liar. I most certainly don't dismiss the difficulties of losing weight or for that matter, changing habits like smoking. How could I?!?!?!?! I've had these issues myself!!!!!!!!! I don't think anything about changing life-long or even partially life-long habits is easy.

I realize it's even harder when it's been a life long thing because in the case of weight loss, those cells are constantly screaming, "Feed me! I'm hungry." Those cells think they need more when they actually don't. In some cases, people are descended from people who subsisted on very little, for instance in a desert environment and they're easy keepers, like an Arabian horse. They can't even look at a grape without gaining weight. I think that's me. I gain VERY easily. Plus, I'm older and my hormones and metabolism have really, really slowed down to a crawl. I have to work harder than some in order to lose weight. There are probably evolutionary and genetic issues involved as well. I know someone, a previous b.f. of my daughter's who needed to gain weight! He was on 500+ calories a day. Unbelievable!!! And he didn't gain an ounce. So, sometimes it even goes both ways. It's a struggle. And I don't see where I said anything was easy...or to "just do this." Where did I say it was easy????????????

I've only tried to offer encouragement by trying to be positive in suggesting things to try. I'm still experimenting myself, as I need to lose weight too! Do you mean that by my suggesting that poor eating habits causes people to gain weight, I'm saying something wrong? I always thought...the experts always say...that eating certain foods or eating them to excess causes weight gain, heart disease or in some cases diabetes or cavities. Is there something wrong with my posting that information? Should I not talk about things that might be discouraging to somebody? How would I know? How would I know who might be offended by certain facts or opinions? I wouldn't want to hurt your feelings or anyone's feelings. I've posted things like "congratulations" and other approving or encouraging statements. I'm feeling gung ho about healthy life changes, not only for myself, but for everyone. You should see the YMCA I just joined. The parking lot is always full. It's huge. There are people like me, turning things around. And I think it's just flat out terrific!

I just don't get where I've called you a liar, where I've been discouraging, or whatever else I'm being accused of.

Well, so long...

That seems like a lot of protein. I'm at 1360 calories a day (set to lose 2 lbs a week) and only am allotted 53 grams.

I wonder what a place like Weight Watchers would say about her eating habits. But then that same disgusting giant of a corporation is endorsing McDonalds as a place to eat as a part of their "healthy diet" so take their advice for what it's worth.
WW would not have an issue with it at all. They encourage eating meats (lean), healthy fats, and veggies.

I have not seen the McDonald's WW endorsement. However, WW does promote a sustainable lifestyle of healthy eating. Perhaps your lifestyle never includes eating at McDonald's, but for those of us mere mortals it might, so it is nice to know there are options, even if it isn't ideal.

One thing I like about WW is that it is sustainable for many people. For me, cutting out whole grains and fruit sounds like a whole bunch of suck. If others find that it works for them and they like that is really, truly awesome. However, peoples mental and physical makeups are all different, and it would be nice to remember and rspect that in the weight loss and health threads.

I forget where these quotes are from, but I love them.

"Pain is weakness leaving the body." - What I think when I'm sore the next day
"Sweat is fat crying"

Those are good Fran. I admire Jillian Michaels a whole lot.

Go into the website in your account, then under home go to "goals." Go down to the bottom and click "change goals" choose "custom" and then you can enter whatever ration you want.

My ratio is 10/45/45 and for 1830 calories it says 46g carbs, 206g protein, and 92g fat.


This is the minimum protein calculator I used ( http://www.phlaunt.com/lowcarb/nutrientCalc.php ) and I put in my info and 50g of carbs a day, and it spits out 195g protein. If I put 20g carbs it shoots up to 247g protein
