performance: losing 1.9 lb a week

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 does this work?!
I'm there with HCB. Diablo hasn't changed his photo in years. He could by now be a 40 year old living in his mom's basement. As for me, I am dogmatic with diet. I believe almost anything will work, for about six weeks. I am dogmatic about protein. That's about it. Everything else is negotiable. I fluctuate all over the place on the other two. I've tried most techniques. In my opinion, calories are king, but I also recognize that between diabetes and hypoglycemia we're all somewhere on a curve, which means some things work better for some people. I like to play with my chemistry set.

Convenient Foods
Chadlius. But it can't be bad because it's natural right? You know - like arsenic. That would be an awesome way to lose muscle mass though. (Yeah, either.)

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.
