Syntrax is some great stuff. It really helps me to raise my protein without eating a ton of calories. Have you tried the Lemon Tea? I drink it with meals as my beverage and it is good.

Thanks for that tip. No, I have not but that sounds great. I'm looking for something to spice up the taste of water! I don't do soda or even Crystal Light anymore. I'll check that out.

Hi Bill - quick question for you. I just got my Tanita this aft and will start using it tomorrow. How do you calculate what your caloric intake should be for the day - let's say I want a 1000 deficit to lose 2 pounds per week? Thanks for your assistance. I intend to join your geek squad if allowed LOL.

Would love to have you sign up for the geek squad! The calorie intake for that 1000 calorie deficit does not come from the Tanita. I use FatSecret for that. The numbers it spits out for that are highly suspect, in my opinion. I set myself as a "2" for that and it says something like 4200 calories per day that I should eat. No way! When I read the manual it said that it uses the BMR that it figures out and multiplies it by 1.78 to get that number. So what i always do is divide the 4000 calorie plus number that displays on my Tanita by 1.78. That's how I get the BMR number I put in parens. But I do not use either of those numbers do to anything with my diet.

Gotcha - thanks Bill. I currently am using a cross between FS and my fitbit site to figure our the calories, so will probably stick with that. Cheers!
