Because the mods are getting concerned about eating disorders really. (and some of the intakes were extremely low and may be seen to be promoting certain eating disorders).

However, I find writing down what you eat helps you stick to a diet, and suggestions such as writing a food diary in a blog, or word document may help.
Dont you think that is a little ridiculous?

Not at all. They have a point. Why do you think they closed what did you eat today thread? It was getting a bit too much with people posting dangerous diets. I think its a good idea. Plus a lot of people were saying they didn't read the posts about what people ate that day (i just glanced at the calorie content, to see if they matched up to the foods). TSR can't be seen to be promoting, or allowing what may be classed as pro-eating disorder behaviour. It used to be fine, but more recently seems to have got a little off track. Its quite worrying as well - none of us are trained to deal with eating disorders.

I think if people kept their own food diary, and if became stumped on what else to try if the diet doesn't work, just post a general idea of whats been eaten each day, or I'm willing to accept PM's on the subject.

Hello everyone!

I joined this society a while ago but I haven't really posted much - I thought this should change today! So I'll try to start posting regularly, see if it'll help with motivation

I went to the gym for the first time ever today! It was quite scary, especially the weights area with massive sweaty muscley men, so I just went on the treadmill and bike and avoided them! But at least I went, that's the main thing, and I am proud of myself!

A question/problem: I was told that I should aim to keep my heart rate between 140-160, but when I measured it whilst on the bike it was 180! I wasn't going particularly fast or hard, so I don't see what I could do to get it slower whilst still pedaling!? Any ideas?!

You ladies (and men!) are lovely.

Is there any benefit (other than to yourself) for posting your daily intake?

Things like seeing ideas, i guess we will all just have to review products we try perhaps. Or if your after new ideas for certain meals you could ask for people's opinions.

I'm not saying it isnt. I just dont agree. I'm allowed to have an opinion, just as everyone else has had, apparently.

I like to see how many calories things have and what people are eating. Il stick to the rule, i just think its unnecessary. Can we just leave it at that?

I find the gym machines are quite inaccurate for measuring my pulse anyway, since i have a slight murmur, so it may be an inaccuracy with the machine. Did you feel really out of breath or anything like that??

I think we would still be allowed to say i've just eaten such and such and it was great, for instance, just not tally it up as a days intake like we were. And i can't see the harm in asking questions such as how many calories were in that if theres something which catches your eye.

It won't - if it doesn't go to extremes.

No, I wasn't out of breath, just pretty hot but that's what I expected! I'll go with machine inaccuracy I think, it seems the most logical explanation; I think if my pulse really was that high I probably wouldn't feel too good!
Thanks

Unless you have a really high pulse to start with. I personally don't record my pulse when i'm exercising - i think its not necessary.

Hi, I'm not sure if this is the right place to post, but I'm thinking of losing some weight - I'm 5'6 and weigh 11 stone (I'm female) - just wondering how much really? I don't know if that's enough info really, but I'd appreciate people's opinion anyway.

My opinion is your within the normal BMI, so theoretically you don't need to lose weight, although if you gained some, that would probably put you into the overweight category.

However what is more important is how you feel yourself. it sounds like you want to lose weight. So next step how much weight? And by when? (as a guide 63kg will put you at a BMI right bang in the middle of the normal range (thats around 10 stone).

Whats your eating/exercise patterns like?
