    Just Started Counting...

    I have just started counting my calories because I am about 40 lbs overweight. I plan on eating about 1,200/day so I have to stick to my guns and plan my meals better. It really can be a lot of food if you plan right. Today is my first day, and I'm terrified of failing. I always...

    Has It Really Come to This?

    At what point did I decide to obsess over every ounce of food and liquid I take in and degrade myself continually for not having the "will power" to starve myself and run myself ragged?  Is this what it is to be a size 12 woman in America?  It seems no matter...

    Allergic To Calories

    I don't understand how someone could not count calories. Nothing pains me more than to go over my safe limit. Even if it's by one raspberry which is one calorie. Normally that leads to purging which I'm trying so hard to stop.

    Attention Calorie Counters!!

    How come no one has told me about this?!  Apparently apple cider vinegar, which you can buy at any old grocery, has tremendous health benefits. Including WEIGHTLOSS. People who take 2tbsp a day at each meal lose an average of 15 pounds a year with no additional weightloss...

    I keep myself aware of my calorie intake using

    an app on my phone. Just being aware of how much I'm eating has helped me to eat less and lose weight.

    E.D

    I believe that my eating disorder started by my obsession of couting calories. I started with nothing too small, but then when my mind took over I wouldnt allow myself to go over 300 a day. Now I know the calories in most things and shockl people with my knowledge.

    I Am Wretched

     I try to keep it at 1200 per day. I wanted to get down to 1000, but I read somewhere that at my height and age I really shouldn't eat below 1200, lest my muscles begin to deteriorate, thereby lowering my metabolism. The recommended daily intake for my size/age is 1500...
