Baloney? lol

Nickzz is right. Burn more calories throughout the day than you take in. Add in some exercise if you want to lose it faster.

The only way I'm wrong is if he's only interested in having a lower weight. I'm under the assumption that he wants to lose excess fat. You don't lose fat by starving yourself. When you do that, your body retains a higher portion of what you eat for fat preserves and uses less nutrients that make your body function properly. Our body is designed (or evolved, for some of you) for survival - we can go a long time without eating. Storing fat is a big priority for human bodies.

I know you like scientific literature and peer reviewed articles. Show me just one that agrees a low calorie diet not only burns fat, but is healthy. I've seen plenty that warn about the loss of muscle mass and bone density... while the body stores more fat.

Eating more often I suppose. Instead of 3 meals I'm eating around 5-6, in small portions. Like a glass of milk with a banana in the early morning, an apple with water a couple of hours later. A good lunch, peanuts a couple of hours later with water, Another fruit or jelly or soemthing, then supper.

Ahh, yes... Gotcha. Eating 5-6 meals per day vs 3 is very good for you, esp if you're trying to lose weight. I've been doing that for at least a year now, smaller portions at meals and healthy snacks between. I'm not really trying to lose weight per se, just keep/put on muscle and lose fat. I'm down 3 belt loops in the past year and still right at 215.

I'd recommend stop psyching yourself out by saying you are 42 like its a bad thing. 42 is young in this day and age and isn't preventing you from doing jack squat. Its almost like that number has given you license to fail.

I'd also recommend picking up some weights. The more muscle mass you have the more calories you will burn all day long.

masturbate daily...more if you can handle it...always good to get the heart rate up a little!

water, water and then more water! Too many people fail because they don't drink near enough water

Remember this BigJohn -

most of the folks giving advice out willy nilly on this thread are probably bigger lard asses than you.

If their post counts have a positive correlation to their ass size, I am certain of it!

His entire post talked about how he needed to drop weight. Burning more calories than you take in absolutely will cause weight loss. Nothing you said makes that statement false.

Yes I'm sure the doctor mentioned in the OP would encourage unhealthy weight loss at the expense of bigjohn's muskuloskeletal system. Profit driven industry.

What I find interesting is people's tendency to project their own self image onto others.

what I find interesting is that the CDC says about 2/3 of Americans are overweight to overweight/obese - yet everyone on the internet is toned, fit, a hot body, and one of the beautiful people.
