I like the idea of this site , it is a bit time consuming but I will give it a go.

One thing I need to know is what exactly are all these charts telling me? I guess what I am asking is how much of what do I need or not need in order to lose and stay there?

People keep telling me because I am very active I need to eat more in order to lose. Yesterday was my first day journaling on fitday.com and the charts show I burned 3000 calories and only took in just under 1100.

I really don't eat a lot and never have. Weekends are harder to stay on track but during the week I have 5:30 a.m. breakfast , a 9 a.m. snack , lunch , an afternoon snack and then dinner. All I consume are serving size recommendations. I am semi/vegetarian as I still eat dairy , fish and occasionally a turkey burger. I eat a lot of fruit , veggies and yogurt. I use a protein powder for making smoothies.

Looking forward to any advice and meeting like minded individuals.

have a lovely day
