Be assured that your advice is indeed very helpful! I joined FitDay about a week ago and consider myself a newbie who still experiments with her daily caloric intake and her food and exercise choices. To me (and I'm sure to other newbies as well) your post has been very enlightening and inspirational.
The funny thing is that up until last week I was convinced that making healthy food choices belonged to the range of common sense, but I've only now realized how badly I've eaten in the past. With the help of your post I know a bit better how to improve my eating habits - so thanks for that!
