  1. I just wanted to note that you can search Google using "site:healthdiscovery.net wii fit" and it will only search this site and not give you any results from other domains. In fact, you could also do "site:healthdiscovery.net "wii fit"" with quotes only around wii fit and get every thread containing these words, assuming Google has indexed the page recently.
  2. Neither is better than the other, choose the one that allows you to better work it in to your plan based on the nutrition information and points value. If a product is sugar-free then it usually has sugar alcohols which can cause some people to have cramping and other adverse reactions. However, fat is healthy as long as you try to limit your intake of saturated fats.
  3. Can someone recommend me a pedometer? I had a cheaper one a while ago but it would count steps while I was sitting. I need one that is a little more accurate.
  4. Are you following the eight good health guidelines? If you are and you still have points left over, CrystalRose has good suggestions. You can also substitute higher point foods in place of lower point ones. For example, use regular dressing instead of fat-free.
  5. Was it this? http://www.healthdiscovery.net/forums/showthread.php?t=67043

  7. It seems to me that you are over thinking a lot of things in regards to weight loss and bodily responses. As you say, there is "no magic food or bullet" that will kill cravings, make you lose weight faster, or whatever else you are worried about. At the end of the day, what really matters is calories in The best advice I can give, which the other reply's agree, is try Core which focuses on natural foods without all the added sugars and whatnot. Follow the healthy 8 guidelines, eat plenty of fruits, vegetables, lean meats, and study other peoples menus. There are a lot of variables when it comes to health, if you get too involved trying to figure out a perfect way to win the battle, you will probably lose. It only takes a little change and effort to reap big rewards.
  8. I know this thread is about a week old since someone posted, but I wanted to add my input on this. Some may say that you can or cannot add fiber to the food and lower the points value. Have you ever looked at the NI on WW foods in the grocery? They add fiber to them to lower the points value. I was looking at their cream cheese, 1g fiber. Cream cheese does not have fiber. Our leader says "If Weight Watchers does it, you can too." I wouldn't take a bar of chocolate and eat it with Fiber One and lower the points on it, but something like yogurt which is already low calorie, I can't see the harm. I eat yogurt with Fiber One all the time and always count the fiber.
  9. Regular Cool Whip, serving size 2 Tbsp: 25 calories, 1.5g fat, 0 fiber = .63 points.
  10. With Core you get a weekly points allowance of 35.
  11. According to the complete food companion, no.
  12. I do have weights, nothing major, just a couple ten and five pound weights. I thought these would give my muscles a better workout since I could do various routines. Also like you say, they are easier to store and take up little room. I just worry about them breaking and injuring me, but I probably shouldn't.
  13. Does anyone use these and have you seen results from them? I am thinking about getting this: Danskin Now Premium Resistance Tube Kit http://www.walmart.com/catalog/product.do?product_id=4329710 I have heard good things, but want someones opinion who actually uses them. I am wanting them specifically for light strength training. Thanks!
  14. I have never had an iced coffee from McDonalds, but I am assuming that includes cream or milk? Is it pre-made or can you just get plain iced coffee with the syrup. The coffee I get from a local place doesn't have any fat or calories, I think they use something similar to Davinci syrup. If they can make it without, I would love to try it.
