  • Very informative. Don't know if I agree 100% with all the information. - 4/16/2014 10:56:33 AM

  • Low fat or sugar foods can help you to lose weight, if you track calories. It's how I lost 120 ponds and have kept it off.

    Low fat and carb foods without tracking doesn't work because nothing works without tracking.

    If you're overweight you are bad at ambiently keeping track of your calorie inputs BY DEFINITION.

  • Got all but exercise. I exercise usually 90 to 120 minutes a day. But most articles tell you it's OK for just 30 minutes a day. So learned that the more the better.
    I'm doing pretty good, still in my goal range, over two and half years.

  • John Skim is right on. The old calorie in, calorie out slogan is plain wrong. http://news.healt

    ie-counts-are
    -wrong-6-diet-myths-busted/ As a Harvard and University of Florida study showed, calories coming from sugar sources, trigger a cycle of hunger because the body sends them to the liver for fat storage, rather than to fuel the muscles. Foods high in fiber, anti-oxidants and low-fat protein - lead to increased mood, awareness and activity. Whereas, foods dense in sugar make you feel down, hunger and lethargic. So if you are eating in your calorie range, but want to rush to the refrig for more food - don't grab the low-fat pudding, rather some lean fish or berries will be a better! - 1/30/2014 9:12:39 PM
  • I do not agree with the first one!

    Carbs first! - 1/20/2014 2:05:19 AM
  • I have heard the 60-90mins a day for weight loss, but that just seems unattainable. Days I get in 40-50 minutes at the gym I feel like that is Superwoman status for me. This just remind me a I still have a long way to go. I hope their comes a day when I can not imagine that I did not always stay so active, I want it to be that much a part of me! - 1/19/2014 11:14:58 AM
  • Happy to say I knew most of this but it is good to have the knowledge reinforced. Good video - 1/17/2014 6:18:33 PM
  • I aced the quiz! I will say that I do eat low fat but *whole* foods, not processed; and I choose satisfying foods with fiber (my tummy likes a higher balance of soluble fiber). I also enjoy soups and drinking water. - 1/15/2014 11:06:28 AM
  • I would've never guessed the bran muffin. I also thought carbs were more important then calories. Thank you. Very informative. - 1/3/2014 12:35:21 PM
