    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?

    Anna, while eating as healthfully as you can let your body be your guide. Say you normally feel energetic on 1500calories per day and don't have time for an extra workout, cut 100 calories for a week and monitor yourself. If you feel fatigued add 50 back. If you feel good drop 50 each week til you have side effects or hit 1200/day. If you are @ 1200/day and energized you need to move more or cut caffeine. You want to feel calm, happy and energetic enough to live but hyperactivity indicates calories that need to be cut or burnt.

    Thank You so much for responding.I do appreciate your input.And im gonna take your advice.One more question,if I could..I do not drink alot of water/enough water.And quite honestly I just dont care for it.But im getting use to grabbing a bottle of water insted of soda.My queston is.If I add some lemon to give it flavor?Is it still considered as good as water?Is there anything else I can add to water without hurting my water intake?

    Lemons, lime, a slice of orange, sliced strawberries, mint leaves, fresh pineapple or pretty much and kind of fruit, I have found if you make a large gallon and let it set a few hours in the refrigerator it is great. I usually replace any left overs after two days, but most of the time it is gone.
