In her defense, she was an old school group leader who had been teaching WW for at least twenty years, I think even longer.  Maybe some continuing education would have helped her.

You're right. Nothing beats moderation, but when stress strikes, try chocolate.

Hehe!  I was just kidding about the chocolate.  Chocolate isn't just food; it's mental health.

But I think you're right.  Moderation is the thing.  I've read (and calculated) multiple places.  3500 calories  a pound gained or lost. So 100 calories a day = a pound a year,all other things being equal.    So an extra scoop of mashed potatoes or a couple of pats of butter can add or subtract a dress size,by next year this time.

All things in moderation - including moderation itself.
So ladies start your chocolate engines....

this really is the secret of weight management.  The trouble is we humans have a hard time thinking in long or large units - sort of where the phrase 'penny wise, pound foolish' came from. 

Also, if you up your energy consumption by just 100 cal a day you can achieve the opposite - assuming of course that you don't adjust your intake to the new excercize regimen Tongue

there is a research gong on regarding feast and famine. where one day you eat 1500 calories and then next day you can eat 2500...does something to the metabolism. you would think that averiging out what it must be more one day less another that is the trick

Yes. That's why they changed the Weight Watchers system, I think.

Do you have the bernstein diet there?  They basicaly shift you into starvation mode (monitored by ketones)  and keep you there.  As I see it, you're health is not primary, you weight loss is so that they can maintain their stats..

Never heard of it, but it doesn't sound too appealing to me.

Weight Watchers changed several years ago.  It used to recommend a uniform number of calories each day.  Now it's recommended that you vary the number of calories within a range, to keep your metabolism guessing.  According to them, you lose more weight more quickly that way.

What's funny is that a Weight Watchers member thought it up and posted it in an online discussion forum.  Then the WW scientists investigated and made her pull the plug.  The next iteration of WW had the calorie variation built in.

Oh and btw, if you do a lot of eating out, you might want to check out Dotti's Weight Loss Zone website.  It has nutrition info for a ton of restaurants, including quite a few Canadian ones, IIRC.

True.  There are some dead giveaways.  What's been really enightening to me has been the sodium numbers.  Shocked  Mindboggling.
