  • I just enter the raw ingredients too. Much more accurate and not really all that hard.

      I use SparkPeople but I have also heard good things about Chonometer. I think, once you get "settled in " to one there is a tendency to stay put. You get all your favorites entered, etc.

      One place that I've found has some good info on grass fed meat nutritional stats is Livestrong.

      • Just want to introduce myself. I'm a 43 year old mother of three active boys, two of them teenagers. I have only recently gone primal after being LC off/on for years. I've battled weight my whole 30's and 40's. I am very motivated to stay at a healthy weight though due to high blood pressure and family history of diabetes, cancer, high blood pressure. I am looking to lose at least 19 lbs for my blood pressure but 30 lbs would be better and should be at an ideal weight for me as I was close to that a couple of years ago and loved it.

        I have given up all grains, only use limited dairy (hard cheese sprinkled on a salad or veggies, greek yogurt, a bit of cream with the coconut milk in my coffee) I have some fruit either in a protein smoothie or as a snack, mostly berries if I can hide them from my kids that's always an issue. I feel great, no cravings which is amazing to me because I always have cravings especially when I diet. Rosacea clearing up which it always does when I have low carbed in the past.

        • So continuing from above, I still eat some nuts which I am trying to cut back, walnuts/macademian mainly and some almond milk/butter but I at least I gave up peanut butter. I use butter, olive oil, bacon grease for my fats. Started back on coconut milk, I don't like the coconut oil just a bit too oily but I will buy some again to add to dishes sometimes.

          I like yoga for toning and for helping with my blood pressure. Swimming/jogging sprints on my rebounder and walk it out on my rebounder for exercise though I need to work on making sure I do it daily. I have also had a much nicer period that I have had in years! lol That feels wierd to brag about but my blood pressure has been better, lighter flow, less cramps still the same headache though but not as severe.

          Working to corporate this lifestyle in permanently and in smaller amounts my family's life. Under a lot of financial and family stress at the moment, so that's hard. I have aging parents and inlaws, one of which is dying of the last stages of cancer. I wish I had convinced all of

          • I am really freaking out about going on vacations tomorrow. I have a plan, and I try to tell myself it is a good plan, but in my heart of hearts I have so little faith in my being capable of sticking to it, it is pretty sad. Last time I went to visit my mom on vacations, I stuck for good 3 or 4 days, and then lost it and binged. And without gym, I won't be able to offset bad eating and not fasting enough, I am just seeing myself gaining a huge amount of weight. I was not to the gym since Saturday too busy, too hot, too everything, and I am still eating, and even cheated. I am trying to get on track today, and do a lean day, followed by a long fast > 24 hrs while we will be travelling, but I am also afraid if I do that I will binge the moment i see food. I am also afraid i won't be able to stick to my plan as we are waiting for our first plane at 4 am, and my folks have breakfast and...

            The short of it, I am freaking out. I really do not want to gain weight, but I am not really sure I have enough steel in me left to stick to proper foods and caloric ranges without my regimen and counting.

              Have fun on your vacation. Relax. A lot of times the relaxation of vacation actually boosts your progress when you come home. Just take it one day at a time, or one meal at a time or whatever.

              I'm going on vacation next week. I have to drive across the desert halfway across the whole country in my truck that has no air conditioning. I'm actually a little nervous about that. I'll do the best I can food-wise. I'm going backpacking and will have lots of healthy food in my backpack plus I'll be getting plenty of exercise. On the way there and back, I'll probably just have to make the best choices I can make at diners along the way. Having a pickup truck with no camper shell and filling it with backpacking gear and other stuff means there's not a lot of room leftover for a cooler of healthy traveling food. No need to fret over that. Just do it, make the best choices I can, and move on with life.

              • I agree........... just relax and enjoy. You won't gain a ton of weight - maybe a pound or three.......... you can get those off when you get back to your normal routine. You've done great to this point! Have fun!

                • I gained 8-10 lbs when I went to visit mom for a week this spring with my wee one, and I was running and swimming and biking there daily, and I was good with food (butter tea till 2 pm, eggs and meat only and a bit of vegg in the evening) for good 4 days, but then I started eating nuts/peanuts with tea, and then ate a lot of sweets and fruit once I got back home for 2 days. I zoomed from 117 lbs to 127 lbs! And I haven't been able to go down to 120 since, sticking in 120-122 lbs.

                  • I'd shave my head if it would get me to 122 pounds! Last time I saw that number on the scale I was 21 years old and putting on my wedding dress. After that............ gain, gain, gain!!!!
