"Exercising builds muscle. Muscle weighs more than fat. Which means it's possible to eat right, exercise and gain at your next weigh in."One can avoid a lot of grief by instead obsessing over weight, working towards a healthier body type. One of my classmates way back in high school was big into lifting weights. He was told - with a straight face, even, which considering the guys almost complete lack of body fat makes you wonder about these people - that according to a height/weight based scale, he was seriously overweight and should seriously consider dieting and exercising. (I guess the massive amounts of time spent lifting weights didn't count?) So much for BMI and other such nonsense..."Breaking your scale isn't the solution."Nonsense, good sir! Violence is always the solution. If nothing else, breaking your scale uses up calories. ;)
Agreed!I cut down and persimmon tree and dug up the root ball this weekend. It's hard to feel too bad about gaining a pound on the scale. Still it feels good to give it a kick now and then...
If you like keeping details and want to lose weight then I recommend the "Lose It" app for iphone/ipod touch. I'm sure you can use it on other platforms too.After recording meals for a week you'll realize just how badly you're eating. Like most restaurant meals will give you almost all of your calories allotted. It's also awesome for monitoring the nutrient composition of what you eat. You can also record your exercise sessions and it will estimate calories burned based on YOU (i dont know the exact calculation). This has really helped me. I've lost 20 freakin lbs in 2 months so far.I honestly am losing a lot of weight just by controlling my portions. I still eat tasty food. Most diets are all about what you CANT eat. But it's more like how much should you eat . . . //good luck
Makolyte-That sounds cool. I'll check it out!Thanks
You could try inhaling helium before your next weigh-in. Just don't try explaining this to your wife. You'll sound funny.
I've always been partial to the hacker's diet, a sort of "weight loss for engineers" kind of thing.
Jason-Informative and inventive as always!!TME-Awesome!
