I'm using the app on my iPod that's for myfitnesspal. Great app to help count calories. Also, I'm doing the Zumba exercise program to help with the weight loss/tone up.

Any opinions on all of this??

Make sure to stock up on beans and yogurt for protein :)

Don't "eat lots" let your meagre diet consist of a high proportion of beans and yogurt,whole grains, fruits and veggies!

Steve Martin had the best diet plan-

Day 1: a raisin
Day 2: an egg
Day 3: chocolate cake, potato chips, pizza, donuts, milkshake (x4)
Day 4: amputate body parts until desired weight is achieved.

You might also consider a grain called quinoa (pronounced keen-wah)--most stores sell it now. It cooks like rice, can be used in soup, as a side, flavored in many ways, etc. The reason I recommend it is that it's a very good source of protein, like beans without the 'side effects'. If you go meatless, this protein is essential in my opinion. Read the directions, and rinse it well before cooking--even if it says 'pre-rinsed' on the box. It can also be bought in bulk at farmer's markets, etc.

What does it look like?? How does it taste?? Did it need lots of flavoring??

It's in the amaranth family, if I recall correctly. I roast mine a little bit to enhance the nutty flavor, which isn't very strong pre roasting. It's pretty good with onions, peppers, tomatoes, and garlic. You can pretty much treat it like couscous concerning flavoring.

I would recommend eating as much food as possible that is natural and unprocessed. Usually you would have to get this from the grocery store. Also, I would make an effort to increase your exercise intensity gradually - like increasing the speed on the treadmill by a little bit every week.

Fantastic! Feel free to post what kinds of things you've been doing specifically--what foods have worked for you, are you going more for low fat or low carb, are you doing other exercise beyond Zumba? Would love to see how others achieve success to help motivate and educate the rest of us who might be 'gravitationally challenged'...
