I was messing around in the OLD OLD postings, and came across this article. Scary, and interesting. Another good point to NOT spend a whole week's salary (at least, that's what it feels like!) on the popcorn at the movies.

I went from morbidly obese to being the owner of TABDIG - a weight loss coaching service that helps people worldwide losing weight. It's been an amazing journey. From October 4th 2010 to April 3rd 2012 I lost half my body weight - 80 kilos/170 lbs. Since then, I have had two cosmetic surgeries to remove excess skin. I have now quadrupled my strength, gained several kilos in muscle mass, and today I focus on building muscle, optimizing my diet, living healthy and helping people to reach the very same goals. I am stronger, healthier, thinner, happier! If you feel that you need help losing weight, don't hesitate to send me an inbox message.

Movie popcorn also contains a lot chemicals in its artificial flavoring.

what balance of fat/carbs/protien am I looking to achieve for weight loss
