    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Yours in health,

    Hi. Does anyone have a low-cal, nutritious menu they are using?
    jemimahhernandez responded:
    Eat a variety of fruits and vegetables to get vitamin C, vitamin A, potassium and dietary fiber.

    Your diet can include leafy green vegetables, such as broccoli, spinach or kale, and citrus fruits including oranges or tangerines, berries, onions, eggplant and tomatoes. Starchy vegetables such as carrots, acorn squash and pumpkin are slightly higher in calories, but they are excellent sources of vitamin A.

    In addition to their vitamins and minerals, fruits and vegetables also have healthy phytochemicals such as phytosterols. A few fruits and vegetables, such as avocados and olives, are high in calories.
