Members profiles:
I am a professional living in Greater Vancouver, BC. I am 4' 11.5"(151 cm) and small framed, so my RMR is very low and I burn far fewer calories in exercise. I might mention here that the bit of brain which controls appetite strongly believes that I am a 6'8" lumberjack. Other important tidbits about me: - I stay in groups in which we mutually support each other. - I am completely open to new ideas if evidence based ("woo-woo" is not cool) - see below "what I need help with" section.

But I summarize my totals here anyway. 50+ year old married male profesional with 2 kids on the LEFT Coast of USA What works for me: 1. Daily logging of cals and exc 2. Low fat meals 3. Commenting on PEERTrainer 4. Planning the food I eat 5. Beck-style awareness 6. Hypertrophy of my resistance muscle 7. Keeping goals in mind: health, longevity, good looks and good shape, staying around for wife and kids, avoiding stroke, heart attack, cancer


My name is Bridget. I am live in a beach town on Long Island. I am new to PeerTrainer. I was vegetarian a longtime ago for a while and fell away from it. I am have. Been slowly implementing Eat to Live over the past year. In the last 8 weeks I have been following the principles more strictly. I have two kids and I work full time.


I am a stay at home mom to a 5 year old. Besides being a homemaker, I teach an occasional yoga class and dabble in a little writing. I'm in my 40's and learning to love life more as I go along. I wore several career hats before deciding to go to grad school. My daughter was born while I was starting my dissertation, and I left school and have never looked back. I am not a natural at keeping house, but have recently gotten on a kick where I want to take the bull by the horns and become very competent at it. I think getting my home cleaned, organized and decluttered has left me some mental space to look around and see what I want to tackle next. That's why I am here. My weight loss goals are not extreme, but I have been carrying a few extra pounds since my thirties and have seen a slight rise in the last couple years. I am ready to reverse this trend and get back to a weight that I feel good about.
