Avatar f tn Is there an option within the app to toggle decrease/increase the daily calorie budget? I've had great success on a strict diet plan losing 70lbs and would like to use this app to track and manage results as I transition from the weight loss phase to the maintenance phase. Please advise.

723660 tn?1247163511 m not out of this yet, which brings us to the question of how to manage weight and nutrition on a tight budget. What sort of foods and supplements should I look for as affordable staples?

I'm on a tight budget being a stay at home mom. I've lost about 10 lbs in the last month just by walking.
Avatar f tn I previously went over my calorie budget so it caused a deficit each day after that. This is only my 4 day of using the diary. Thanks for any input!!
Avatar m tn How do I find a vet who will tell me how to care for an issue without ringing me dry? A healthy cat just had a regular check up for over the $300 but they had to put me on a plan or it would have been $40 more. This doesn't make sense. I'm losing faith in the profession. Why is urinary crystal food prescription if it's just fine to let my other cat eat? How do I find a vet who will help me how to care for an issue without ringing me dry?
5104126 tn?1413329079 Yeah were on a tight budget as well... Were trying to move into a bigger place n everything before our baby get here. We already have a 3 year old. Im trying to wait until my baby shower in a few weeks to see what else I will need.
Avatar f tn I am on a tight budget for buying baby stuff being a single mom,so what are some things that should be bought new and what is okay to buy used.Also do you use any websites to get any free stuff?
Avatar m tn m not sure if not having enough protein is contributing to me not losing weight. I hear people talk about how they lose a pound a week and the such, but I've run 5 miles a day for 5 days straight for 1 month and have only lost 1-2 lbs. What am I doing wrong?!
Avatar f tn 3kg and I need to be under 75kg to be normal weight ( calculated based on my height) This issue is starting to bug me and even affect my confidence. Am in college living on campus hence not on a budget to afford the sort of expensive healthy lifestyle but I am slowly incorporating the cheaper aspects like drinking water 2L a day. I wanna be 75 by the end of this year. Please help?
Avatar f tn Hey everyone - This could be for a couple of different reasons. First, if you are using it on an Android device, the calories will decrease in small amounts each day, assuming you are losing weight. It's predictive, rather than reactive. It will adjust as you enter new weights. Even though it's correct, it's confusing to users, so we will be adjusting this in a future update. It could also be that your goal is rapidly approaching.
Avatar f tn How can you have a negative calorie budget? You don't have something set right. Not eating enough calories is just as bad, or worse, than eating too many.
Avatar n tn During setup, I wasn't asked what my current weight is, just what my desired weight is. Isn't that required to figure out my calorie budget? How do I enter that?
Avatar f tn There is already a deficit built into your budget so that you will lose weight without doing exercise. The deficit is calculated using your target weight, current weight and the date you want to reach target. As you exercise you burn more calories so your budget increases so that your overall calorie deficit stays the same and keeps you on track for your target.
649848 tn?1534633700 Thank you. I know there's been some confusion over this. It seems that the app might not be set up right. If one has a calorie budget and we exercise, our budget shouldn't go up, because we're trying to burn fat, not eat more food... For instance, if my needed calories is 1500/day and I want to lose weight, I have to either decrease my calorie intake or increase my exercise.
1755089 tn?1376053555 t then, can I encourage you to measure yourself now and then maybe on the first of every month? When I was losing weight (more on that in a minute), I measured my waist, bust, upper arm, thigh and calf. If people are noticing your weight loss, it makes me think you are losing inches. I wonder if it is at all possible for you to get your hands on some free weights?
Avatar f tn m mainly going off of how others lost the weight, but I do know that losing a lot of weight very quickly is unhealthy which is why I set the year or so timeline. I don't expect to be exactly on target then it is just a reaching goal. I've checked the charts and the average rate for my height and age is 120 to 145. I've used to be very small and gain weight quickly when I hit my teens and haven't been able to lose it.
Avatar f tn I had a similar problem on this app. I typed in a goal that was a bit lose 30lbs in 3 months and it told me my calorie allowance was -1000! It started telling me I'd gone over my limit when I entered my morning apple! I finally had to uninstall the app then reinstall it to change my goal. It really won't let me lose more than 1.5 -2 lbs/week. Try reinstalling the app.
Avatar f tn This budget helps you understand the amount of calories you can safely consume without adding weight. The over budget indicates the number of total calories you have gone over the budget. The 1693 may be the total calories gone over the budget. Take care! The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you.
Avatar f tn Okay sooo...I'm only 17 and I only weigh 115 lbs BUT I have had these deep purple stetch marks around my inner thighs and around my hips. I don't look fat to other people but when I look at myself I can see just how bad these areas are. I can pinch a good three inches off my waist and a good 6 or 7 off my thighs. I've had them for a long time now, about three years and I don't know how to get rid of them. I've tired losing weight in a shameful way but it didn't work...
