    My only caution with self-designed weight loss regimens is to make sure you have your blood tested for at least the Basic Metabolic Panel which checks 8 or so basic elements/electrolytes in your system. I lost 40 pounds on a self-designed diet that basically stripped all the sodium out of my blood and nearly killed me. It was so low when they took me to the hospital they were thinking I was gonna die.

    My one issue when I'm on point with low carb/starch is I have to remind myself to use salt and eat pickles. When I first lost weight my doc told me I was sodium deficient, not dangerously so, but low levels. Otherwise okay.

    I heard forest ****ing is good exercise too...

    Just a thought. Could make it fun. Or was that part of the plan too?

    I always go to this scene in my mind when someone mentions "going for a walk in the woods."

    Calorie deficit is the only way to loose weight. One can either intake less calories or have the body burn more. Find a diet you like to eat and maintain for long term and some daily physical activity you enjoy.

    I'm pretty sure that was right after he called her chubby... just saying... :)

    The wife and I switched to drinking only water back in our late 40's early 50's maybe, both dropped and kept off 20-30 lbs. each.
    We eat pretty much what we want every day (in moderation) and we don't eat dinner or supper, big lunches and NOTHING (light snack) after 6:00 pm.
    Your body will get used to not eating at night, pretty quick. Tough to do when you still have kids at home to feed, though. :hungry:

    I can't seem to get pass "Lots of beer", making me thirsty.
