I’m gaining weight and I need to shut it down/hit reverse. Fave tracking apps? Think they’re all crap? Noom or Weight Watchers or MyFitnessPal (or something else)?

Noom is pretty toxic. Some here like it, but do your research and know thyself. Even a few Noom fans here will acknowledge that if you’ve ever had even small issues with disordered eating, you should stay away from Noom.

MyFitnessPal is calorie counting, plain and simple. Ugly interface, but it’s free, haha!

Weight Watchers is a whole system. It takes work and time to learn, so it’s not gonna fit everybody. I LOVE it… I’ve steadily lost weight, no longer see any foods as bad/naughty/forbidden, my latest bloodwork wowed my doctor, my head is clearer… I could go on, but basically I think it’s awesome for balancing weight loss and nutrition. For me, anyway—everybody’s different!🤗

MyFitnessPal is free and easy. But I would use another source to determine your BMR and set it in the app instead of using their goals because it always puts calories way too low

MyFitnessPal but calculate your Macros elsewhere. I’ve used the Macros Inc calculator

I love the carbon diet app. They will calculate your macros/calories bases on your goal and you check in weekly. Another good app is Avatar nutrition. Same concept, just different companies. I think carbon is geared more towards athletes and keeps muscle retention in mind more so than avatar.

Second this! Carbon is amazing.

Increase protein intake, and cut off sugary drinks

Any women here with lean PCOS? I do not ovulate on my own (metformin regulated my periods but I still don’t ovulate) and am moving from three cycles of Clomid/IUI to IVF soon. No other issues have been found other than my PCOS (HSG shows tubes open). Curious about your experiences. And the reason I mentioned lean PCOS is because it seems for others with PCOS part of the fertility path is diet/exercise/weight loss but I am already very tiny.

Hi All,

at 6th week and am 31 years old. I live in Canada. When I was asking about NIPT test, My doctor said I do not really have to get it done because of my age. But she said, if I want to get it done I can prefer to do.
Am not very clear if everyone should prefer to get NIPT done. My mom’s eldest brother’s son has some issues like low IQ and learning capacity. Should I opt for NIPT? Any possibility to get false positive on NIPT and end up doing further tests like aminocentesis?

Have anyone taken FAR after it changed in July? Wondering if the most staff that is tested is NFP and Government accounting.
