I still eat rice, but it's brown rice, and I still eat bread but I eat flax-seed enriched bread (for fiber intake). I'm really enjoying it!

Like Savannah, I don't really diet. I don't own a scale at home but I judge my weight by how good I feel about myself. I also judge my weight by how snug my jeans feels. Nothing is worse than needing to buy new clothing because you've gained too much weight. It's a good barometer for me.

If weight loss is your goal, dieting really is the key. Isn't weight loss 80% diet and 20% exercise? That's what I've heard somewhere anyway... It's definitely true that weight loss is about changing your life, and not changing how you eat for 12 weeks. It's too easy to put it back if you don't do a drastic change (but it can be a gradual change, right?)

At the moment I'm really lucky. I can pretty much eat whatever I want whenever I want but I've noticed that my desire to eat tons of crap has dissipated with age. That's good, because from what everyone tells me, as I age it'll be harder for me to keep the weight off!
I used to be on a fairly high-carb diet as most people are. That has changed in the last couple of years as I decrease carb consumption and increase protein intake supplemented by protein powder.

Like you, I eat only brown rice and whole-wheat whole-grain bread ( and generally healthy food). And like you, I am not following this regime for weight-loss purposes. But, I do have an electronic scale in the bathroom and I do weigh myself every morning ( unlike you, ;) ). I do this just because the scale is there and I am always curious. I love eating but I am also very active in sports including martial arts and weight training. My curiosity is whether I am maintaining my normal weight by balancing these two activities, ie. food-intake and sports. So far, I am doing fine and have never felt so good as far as my health is concerned. Touch wood!

In terms of exercise while I don't run (knees and ankle injury from my Army days) now with Spring here and sidewalks no longer ice covered I am walking daily
Thanks

Yes sir, you read correctly. Lean proteins, vegetables and just enough carbs. Visited my Dr once per week because he was not in agreement with my strategy but I stayed healthy.

Well I have two containers of water (not counting my Brita with just plain ole water) in the fridge chillin, one with raspberries and lime, one with lemon, and searching on line for the best low carb diet and then grocery shop tomorrow for what I'll need
Couple questions for anyone that knows. Do I have to give up 2% milk on a low carb diet? Is olive oil OK for cooking. And are salad dressings like Renee's OK or should I make my own oil/vinegar or oil/lemon juice dressing for salads
Any input appreciated
Thanks

RG

I'd replace milk with low carb protein powder.
The fat in milk is insignificant, it's the carbs you want to avoid.
Making your own oil/vinegar dressing is the way to go. Packaged stuff has too much junk in it.

Absolutely.
Any bodybuilder will tell you, a six pack is made in the kitchen, not in the gym.
Go to bodybuilding dot com and there is as much discussion about diet as there is about deadlifts or bench presses.

No joke, I used to be able to eat anything. Then my metabolism changed and I started gaining and gaining. Only really careful eating keeps my gut under control.
Also as you age you will lose muscle mass, so you should do some kind of resistance training later on in life.

Cigarettes. I just recently started smoking again after 15 years, because fuck it, when you get to almost-50 who cares. Eating is like an afterthought when you're smoking. I'm liking it!

I have done quite a bit of reading on this topic and the most authoritative book I have read is called "Natural Hormonal Enhancement". Unfortunately you won't find it in a book store but you can find it online easily.

The premise of this eating plan is to mimic our hunter/gatherer ancestry. Essentially, after the initial "carb cleanse" you follow a program of high protein/low carb with the exception of every 3rd and 7th day when you can eat as much carbs as you like for the last meal of the day. This mimics the days when we hunted for our food and ate greens/nuts and berries when there was no game.

I also highly recommend "Wheat Belly". I have several celiacs in my family and I initially wanted to read it to understand that disease better. However, after cutting bread and past out of my diet for the most part since Christmas I feel fantastic. I sleep better, have more energy and feel less bloated. Although I have been training for a spring marathon, I have dropped over 20 lbs since Jan and I attribute it to a restriction on wheat and exercise.

The new year is coming upon soon. Most people make getting in shape and losing weight their New Year's resolution. Since this year, what diet's have you found that worked or did not work for you. Was the diet easy to follow? And did it work? And did you manage to keep the weight off in the long run? Thanks for sharing :)

Diets do not work imo. Relearned behavior works which means watching what you eat and the amount you consume. Being active and watching portion sizes work best for me.

Default diets

It's important for everyone imo to follow a protocol that suits them and I believe we all intuitively know what works and what's best for us. I personally don't believe in diets, however some, due to health issues, have to follow a particular regime and avoid certain foods and calories, therefore diet. I think most of us just need to burn more than we consume to maintain a healthy weight. Eat less redmeat, more veggies and legumes and keep a positive mindset. I've found exercise to be a wonderful outlet for me, it helps build needed muscle, helps burns away my sugar binges and keeps me positive. I must say I hate exercising but it does have it's positives and although I still need to become more dedicated towards it, I'm finding the more I do the more I want to do:) What ever weight you are embrace it or shed it, no size or shape is the best what we all need is just to feel healthy and comfortable in our own skin:)
