Hi there,

I would love to be your buddy, being my buddy is a choice!

This is what i stand for:
- I have a good sense of humor, i do not get angry easily, nor do i get offended easily. My statements do offend once in a while and i blame that on the fact i am not an native English speaker, born in Amsterdam and taught to speak up for my believes, and not beat around the bush.
- If you ask for my opinion, i will give it. I have an opinion just about everything (*lol*)
- I always speak my mind to buddies.
- If you don't like me, don't be my buddy! I try to be more reserved to non-buddies.
- I believe in a healthy diet, suited for your own body and lifestyle.
If you need to loose 10 pounds, go ahead drink water, fast, shake, and starve! But if you need to loose about a 100 pounds like me, then the slow and steady way is the only way to go. 100 pounds didn't come overnight, and your body needs the time to loose it in a healthy way.
- I believe in speaking the truth (as i see it) You can easily lie to me, but you will loose a friend.
- I believe in science and the power of the mind.
- I believe in the intrinsic good in people.
- I am always looking for improvements to my diet or work-out.
- I believe in a higher power, i do not pretend to know his name, nor do i put words in his mouth. I believe he has a very good sense of humor and that he will be there in the hour of our utmost need.
- I believe we all have a right to choose our own spouse, i do not believe someone else can tell you who you should or should not choose. In that line of thought i approve and acclaim LGBTQQ marriages.
- Anyone who feels trapped in the wrong body should be allowed to change that body since it is yours and yours alone. In that line of thought i also approve and acclaim of all members of the LGBTQQ.

Giving up is not an option!
Gaining weight is not an option!

- your life is yours alone, rise up and live it - Goodkind.

Dieting – Is It The Right Thing To Do
i admit in all your terms and explanations to have a diet. I must also admit to the fact i have involuntary indulgence days (binging) But i blame that to the fact my nutritional guidelines are not perfect fr me yet, so i adjust the nutritional factors until i find something that works for me.

However in order to get this perfect nutritional guidelines, i try to use the health guidelines used by various countries, this site, people i trust, nutritionist, doctor and many many more resources. In order to keep up this new lifestyle i have to write everything down i eat, weigh myself, review, adjust, write down etc etc. So in your words and definition a diet. However, i am at the same time eating healthy, because that is the whole purpose of my diet.

So i still don't see why using guidelines (a diet), cannot be healthy eating? Or why healthy eating cannot be measured and monitored.

Finally, you make an off topic remark about people integrating sports into their lifestyle. I lost about 23 kilos of mainly fat. I still have about 23 kilos to go. I figured how else am i gonna fill up all that ugly loose skin? I am 40-something years old, i still have about 30 good years to go before i have to quit the active lifestyle. Whatever happens after that, (if i live long enough to see those days) i have already won my battle, for if i stayed 113 kilos i would be dead within 30 years...

Dieting – Is It The Right Thing To Do
i do know one reason hardly anybody comes to FS to say they kept it off is because FS is a tool, and they don't need to come here anymore to tell us...
my friend used FS two years back she still lost the weight... ok is not 5 years yet, but she is doing fine...
So all we hear here are the fail-stories... or the long term offenders like me Smile


ps: always good to define terms before argument.

diet: The kinds of food that a person, animal, or community habitually eats.
In my opinion this does not necessarily restricts foods. But in your definition it does, so we'll go from that...

Healthy eating means consuming the right quantities of foods from all food groups in order to lead a healthy life.

If a healthy life is a life where the subject does not weigh 226 pounds (and counting) , how can you not restrict foods? in order to lead the so called healthy life you have to adjust the right quantities of the foods you eat. i still think that is the same as calling it a diet.

ps if i annoy you in any way, please feel free to kick me anytime, and i'll shut up. (*lol*)

Dieting – Is It The Right Thing To Do
i do not understand the distinction between 1. and 2. they go together!

You have to do 1. to get the weight off, but to keep it of you have to 2. if you only do 2. (meaning eating exactly the kcalories for maintenance, or else you would be dieting) you stay the same weight, if you only do 1. (eating less kcals without serious lifestyle changes) you will gain it back again...

correct me if im wrong KingKeld...

So Many Dietitians
Here is another unwanted advise:
I recently made an FAQ and really intent to hand it out if someone asks me one more stupid question!!! two of the remarks on my FAQ i will share, the rest you can ask for in the mail:

-people are watching and their comments can cut like knifes. It is equally hard to get a compliment on a day when you fell off the wagon as it is when a friend points at you and states you should loose some more on a day where your scales just rewarded you with a kilo off... You wear your problem on the outside.
-Somehow the looks and comments you get when you are fat, hurt more when they are given while you are trying to do something about it.
-People can really throw you off track trying to tell you what you are doing wrong when you feel like you are doing right. As if you are not already insecure enough.
