It is a message board, so it is hard to tell the tone of voice. My posts often come across harsh, but that is not how I mean them.
We had a member on this board get kicked off the site for arguing low carb in other areas. I would hate to see it happen again.
Spark is a low fat, low calorie area, we are just guests that they tolerate.

"If I were to eat a salad everyday and stop eating at 7pm, with hrly water intake. What is could be a estimate weight loss per week?"

i got a kick out of this question. could anyone possibly know the answer to that? what's in the salad? how big is it? are you eating one salad a day or salad at every meal? is it a side salad to other food or your only course?

hmm, i think i am going to go make a salad for lunch now emoticon

Sorry Suzanne - we are just being 'silly'. I, too, respect people's choices about everything they choose to do. Even my daughter's choices, but we won't go there today. ha ha

We have just been following Russell's posts on the general message board. And he is very brave to put himself out there like he did.

And what Steamy said explains why I have to go past sacks of corn and mixed grains to get to my cat litter! I don't even notice anymore, though once upon a time, in my SAD days, I do remember wondering whether that stuff would be safe for human consumption...

(Yes, my cat litter comes from the feed store. Pine pellets cost less if you buy them there than at the small-animal supply stores.)

Oh Steamy - that is so interesting and sad at the same time! We are being fattened up for the slaughter.

I have also read recently that the artificial sweeteners are giving us leukemia and diabetes.

That's why I have switched to Stevia for the last 6 months.

Sparkpeople default settings are in direct alignment with the USDA recommendations and information from main-stream media. Most physicians are in-line with these recommendations as well. These recommendations are vastly different when it comes to fat, calories and carbs than a low-carb diet. Also, they are still "hung up" on the calories in / calories out mindset.

Therefore are we really surprised that most people believe the majority of physicians, the USDA recommendations and the media?

However, I was lucky enough to find a doctor that supports a low-carb lifestyle. Also he suggested that I do my own research and provided me with a various resources to look up low calorie, low fat and low carb studies.

I decided to look up and read the science and looked up the actual studies. I'm lucky, I have a background that allows me to interpret and evaluate the study "findings". That's why I support and follow low carb nutritional recommendations - they win the science fair.

One of the things I found out during my investingations is that the current USDA protein/carb/fat ratio is the same that veterinarians and feed stores have been supplying farmers for about 100 years. It's the basic diet recommended to fatten up cattle and sheep - to get them to market faster and generate "marbling". And yes, I went to the feed store and looked it up in a binder that the manager has from the Department of Agriculture.

Quite telling, isn't it.

It is not "duh."
How long did it take you guys to figure out how to eat? Are you all at goal for a long time? I think everyone has their own plan and journey to make. I found what works for me, but respect other people's choices too.

Went to the links and read all of the replies. Because of my lack of significant weight loss as of yet, I felt I didn't have anything worthwhile to add.

I am going to my nutrition tracker now and change my daily calorie goals to 1,000 - 1,200. And then I will have to change all of my nuitrition goals to match up with the reduced calories. I have been at this low carb thing since May 23rd with not too much to show for it.

Exotech - I am with you about adding the fat - that is the only thing that truly cuts off the hunger pangs.

More misinformation and hysteria getting bandied about on the main Message Boards.
I haven't had a chance to insert my 2¢ yet... I probably will; you know how I am.

Anyone else who cares to chime in...
