(Hmm...are wine and beer considered processed foods?)

Cool Well done.

I'm still in the damn starting blocks Red Face


Im thankful for my genetics. I eat and drink everything I want and I stay slender Razz



That worked for me until about 10 years ago, then being 6'4" worked, then, time to just drop the extra 15-20lbs!


I to am 6'-4" and it is not working regardless of what angle I position myself in front of the mirror.

+5lbs on the year, duh.

2011 Weight Loss = 1978-2009 20lbs + 2010 5lbs + 5lbs (Christmas)

30lbs. Eek
Gigabit, I don't think of liquids as food but not really prepared to argue about it, so let's say beer and wine are food I consider them to be like kefir, saurkraut and pickles, partially predigested. I know alcohol is not supposed to do you any favors but I can still lose weight while I am drinking. Which is more than I can say for junk food even at 2000 calories a day.

KSC02, the bread man is irrational and dangerous.
Well, been about a year now since I started my diet. 6', 260# was the start. I'm still 6' (yea!) but 205# now. The only real modifications remain the removal of 95% of simple carbs. I eat a lot of salads for lunch, have veggies and no starch for dinner. I still eat all the foie gras, cheeses, etc. that I want. I split a bottle of wine nightly with my wife (3 glass me, 2 for her).

All my blood labs, my blood pressure are now great. My resting pulse is back into the 40s like it used to be when I cycled and lifted weights a lot (still not getting the same level of exercise I did in my 20s, but apparently getting enough).

Congrats to other folks that have shed some pounds.

Nice work!
One way to lose weight is to be in the hospital Razz

I had some emergency surgery just under a month ago. I went in at 174lb. Was discharged 5 days later at 160 Eek. I've stabilized now at 159. I had no idea it was physically possible, for someone not grossly overweight, to lose 14lb in 5 days.

Don't forget: If you're at the gym lifting weights, while burning calories on the treadmill etc, you'll be adding back in some heavier muscle mass to replace some of the fat. Thus you may be losing more fat weight than shows.

Just throwing a little excuse out there for ya' napaccoast.


I think it is practically impossible to have noticeable muscle growth while in a caloric deficit.

I didn't check back until now. I'm fine, Joe. Thanks for asking.

I had a punctured diverticulum (pouch in the intestine). It resulted in peritonitis. Nasty nasty stuff. I had a great Italian surgeon who ordered me to drink a glass of wine a day when I was discharged! Big Grin
New relevant news

Medical treatment to raise HDL is not successful at lowering CV events.

Still 5 years later
-Lowering LDL and keeping "fluffy" components higher than "solid" is the best treatment...and the best medical regimen involves low dose statins.
-Elevated HDL is protective but best achieved by routine highly aerobic exercise and a low calorie Mediterranean [not low carb or low protein ]diet
-Drinking more liquids and eating slowly reduces the hunger mechanism and keeps you from overeating.
-Everything your mom told you is in fact true
-No dessert before dinner
-Eat your vegetables
-Take human [small] bites
-Don't talk with your mouth full
-Calories in - calories out = weight gain
-Fad or restricted diets don't work at maintenance; 40/30/30 rule still applies
-Don't eat when stressed or bored
-Sedentary work means increasing metabolism early in the morning or evening, something our parents didn't worry about
-You are in charge of your own health...don't blame others or the health care system.
