I am 41 and it took Spark People to teach me that you have to eat to lose weight . What I mean is you have to eat a certain amount of calories all though the day to keep you metabolism firing . It is very imp to eat a well balanced diet and the nutrition tracker helps to ensure weight loss as well.
I learnt the hard way I thought if I ate fewer calories that I would loose more but I was so wrong. That is how I have gained a lot of my weight my body just stored ever nutrient it could.
I have proven to myself that putting the knowledge that I have gotten from Spark People information into action I am loosing. For about 4 weeks I have tried to stay closed to 1200 calories because I has hurt myself and so could not exercise and I was worried I would not loose. Well guess what I did not loose at all. THe last couple of weeks I increased my calories to 1380 and I have lost weight. So again I learnt the hard way that I have to eat to loose weight. IMAGINE I GOT TO EAT TO LOSE WEIGHT!!!!!!
OF course if you eat to many calories the other way you will gain.
Oh Yes I should also let you know that when you change you exercise program Tracker it automatically adjusts your nutrition tracker and it either adds calories per day of takes off calories per day depends on how much exercise your program says.
