No aerobics. No dogma. Lift weights for exercise. Hunt, fish, gather my own firewood. Just a guy in his 50s who four years ago weighed on average between 235 and 240. I'm now just attempting to maintain a body that would put the average mid 20s male to shame.

How many calories?
That's how I do it too. If I'm unsure of what I've eaten, I'll make sure I overestimate. When I do eat out, I tend to pick things that are easily recognizable without sauces. Like this evening. I plan on the halibut and rice with mixed veggies. Yum.

Just diagnosed diabetic
I think the food pyramids as an idea of 'normal' eating is extremely hard on diabetics. The idea that there is a 'right' way to eat for everyone is almost beyond belief. For diabetics the types of foods you mainly eat obviously have diverse effects.

Macros Countdown please!
I'd love that too.

Watch out for the machines that say how many calories you have burned. They include what your body would have used while you were sitting on the couch. So if you would have burned 80 calories sitting on the couch and the exercise burned 40 calories, it will say you burned 120 calories. Don't eat the calories you've 'burned' while exercising. Start anywhere and study and play around until you find the things you like to do. Don't do what is 'right' if you don't enjoy it. Find what you like. You'll stick with it that way.
