    What's your weakness?

    Chocolate Chip Cookies and Diet Soda....the cookies are a killer! I work from home and live right next to a little market with fresh (read Awesome) cookies every morning. They are the big round on...

    Dark Chocolate

    This is an old thread, but I thought I'd throw an answer out there! I recently found 88% organic dark chocolate at the store. Half a bar (which is a LOT) has roughly 6g Fiber and 5g Sugar. Now..ha...

    Stephen Bidgood asked a question:

    Is this "OK" to eat?

    I'm working on rebooting my diet, I think I've tracked down my bad habits and am making a big effort to shut them down. One thing I found was Carne Asada Flank Steak at Costco (I believe it is Guy...

    I think I am assuming that I will starve...I could probably do with less beans in my life.

    Stephen Bidgood asked a question:

    Anybody stop eating beans/legumes?

    Hey Everyone, This is kind of a strange question, but I have to ask because I'm getting pressure from a few people...My girlfriend, and really a friend of hers, are advocating that I stop eating ...

    Way off course!

    Help! I've thrown myself way off course the last few weeks, ever since I went on vacation at the end of August. It's been roughly 3 weeks and I've hit some major struggles. I can't seem to make it...

    Lack of Appetite

    Week 69 results - Exercise Exercise Exercise!!

    A .2lb gain and a .2% loss in body fat should be a good thing. It's not all about the scale, more important is your overall health and the reduction in body fat %. So, really this week should be s...

    Stephen Bidgood asked a question:

    When you've fallen off the wagon, how do you get back on?

    I have a problem, whenever I see great success from something, my mind/body seems to want to destroy that progress and sabotage it. This week has been a PRIME example, after getting below 200lbs (...

    Anybody Consuming Protein Shakes?
