      • I now have a menu planner, but still can’t find “my favorite foods” list. In the Menu Planner Tutorial, on second page, it shows top bar of page after logging in that says “Hello” and my name should appear (I have logged out and back in, but I do not see that). It then says to click on my name to access my profile, which apparently takes me to a different profile than the one I am able to access from my dashboard.
        If I were able to pick my favorite foods (and ones to exclude), it would save a lot of time in menu planning. Thank you!

        • Hi, abhood. To access the food selection area, click on the edit tool icon to the upper right of each meal, then make you selections from the searchable master list. You will be guided by your meal pattern, calculated to meet your needs and goals.

        I see that you do have menus in your area. Are you having trouble getting access to them?

  1. Hello, I am so new to this. I think the site is confusing. Shouldn’t we have section that shows our step by step menu? Or do I go to the My Menu and choose something to eat from there. Who do I talk to, who is here to help us or me? Is there someone for me to talk to? Need Help!!

  2. Hi,
    I’ve read thru the comments, and I can relate to many of those listed. I too thought I would be able to just view my meals to prep and cook for the week, print out a grocery list, come home, prep, cook and lose weight. I was excited when I saw potatoes, and cheese, and muffins on the list, like, oh I can eat these and still lose weight! But now I am confused. Can I use Keto and non-Keto together, or do I need to stay on one side of the fence? Can I lose weight if I still eat the non-Keto recipes? Are these recipes still a healthier way of eating?

    • Hi, Cdickerson. This program has a few routes, of which keto is one. The associated recipes are labeled as such and have their own category in the recipes collection. If you want to be in ketogenesis, you can’t really use the other recipes. However, if you follow the general pattern in your menu, you can still lose weight using any of our healthy and balanced recipes – just note the portion size and timing.

  3. so is this the atkins diet or not? I just purchased this and I thought it was going to more or less tell me what I could eat each day and how much. so far I havent got a clue as to what i am suppose to do. Ive seen you tell other ppl to look at “my menu”. There is my plan, my guides and my activities but no my menu????

  4. I’m new to this program and I’m confused about the breakfast recipes (haven’t looked at other meal recipes). Are these recipes, this potato recipe and the muffin recipes for instance supposed to be combined with other food for breakfast? I can’t find any mention of that with the recipes.

    • Hi, jndsmom, and welcome! Yes, they are often supposed to be combined with other foods. They way to tell is by looking at the “Exchanges per Serving” information at the ends of the recipes, then comparing them to those allotted to you – you can see the latter by clicking on the “Exchange View” button above your menu.

  5. I’m a diabetic and would like to know if there are recipes for diabetics? Is there other types of cheese that can be used besides goat cheese and other types of delicacies types of cheese? I like cheddar, American white cheese, parmesan cheese, parvoloan cheese and other domestic cheese.

    • Hi, thlust. The Trim Down Club has a few different routes, and one of them is keto. Therefore, there are recipes in our collection to suit various needs. To get a list only of keto recipes, type “keto” in the search box on the “Recipes” home page.
      If you see a non-keto recipe that you want to us, contact me through the comments, and I will provide a way to modify it. For this recipe, you can use three cups of a lower-carbohydrate potato-ish vegetable like cauliflower,, daikon/white radish or even turnip.

  6. Hi, muhlestm. The “1 carb” refers to exchanges, much like those used for diabetics. The following are the approximate nutritional values of exchanes:
    Carb (including starchy vegetables): up to 15 grams of carbohydrates + up to 3 grams of protein
    Protein: up to 7 grams of protein + up to 5 grams of fat
    Fat: up to 5 grams of fat
    Vegetable (non-starchy): up to 5 grams of carbohydrate + up to 2 grams of protein
    Fruit: up to 15 grams of carbohyrates
    Sweet: up to 15 grams of carbohydrates + up to 5 grams of fat

  7. I would really like to eat these potatoes, but from my understanding a potato has around 25 carbs per potato? How is this recipe only 1 carb? I would love to eat them just not sure about the carb intake?
