I am a professional who works at a desk and interacts with clients by phone and email 8 to 10 hours a day. My job is stressfull and never done.

I wish I had more free time and time to excercise. In order to excercise, I must take time away from my family time...which is not the best solution. I try to get family members to do outdoor activities with me (walk, jog, basketball, catch, bicycling, swimming, walking the dogs) and am often successful. =)

I weigh about 170 and want to get down to 150. I think I can do so by summer 2012.

Forget RDI: Look at your exercise calendar instead
Good explanation.

Jolly Rancher hard candy. Sugarless. They last a while and get me through cravings.
If a craving is related to an insulin rise, then crash after a meal, then one or two regular Jolly Ranchers will put a little bit of sugar in your blood to kill the craving without adding to many calories. This works for the after-lunch afternoon-sleepies too.

For fast weight loss in the stomach, butt and thigh area get on a stair climber machine, which looks like an escalator that you walk up while the stairs come down. Body builders use stairclimbing machines to ZAP fat faster than anything else. 30 min to an hour will work up an amazing sweat, even if you go at a slow enough speed that does not make you winded. Burn that butt! FAST! You are lifting your entire weight with each step and using the largest muscles in your body, which is a recipe for fat-be-gone.

Should I up my RDI on days where I exercise more?
The amount of excercise your are doing is buring glycogen (sp?) stored in your muscles. This is good. Keeping your same RDI will enable your body to burn more fat stores because your body is being forced to get more talented at converting your fat stores to glycogen that will be stored in your muscles while you are not excercising and/or burned while you are excercising. If you increase your RDI on excercise days more of the glycogen that replenishes your muscles will come from carbs that you are eating. Since you are not in "make muscle mode" increasing your protein intake is probably not a good idea either as long as you are eating enough protein to maintain your existing muscle mass. Obviously, the goal is to use up fat stores (i.e., burn fat) and not use your muscle tissue for energy.

How to eat more, but not really eat more?
How, what, when can I eat more, but not really be eating more. Popcorn is puffed corn and I can eat alot of it (if air popped) without actually eating alot of calories. What else it there. Anything with some protein in it?
