Re: Men Height and Weight

I eat the paleo diet-roots, shoots, and coots. Pretty much the last month I lived on salmon, salad, and blackberries.

6' 1" at 195 lbs. Never over 210 - Dr wants me to lose 10 lbs so I can discontinue cholesterol meds. Websites estimate my living longer than 90.

Re: Men Height and Weight

I'm 6'0 188lbs, trying to get in the 175-180 range. I'm trying the south beach diet. Only problem is I get side tracked. Tonight for example I have some ribs heating in the oven. My nephew brought me these from his restaurant and I sure can't hurt his feelings and not eat them. *

Re: Men Height and Weight

5'11", 157lbs.*

I intentionally stay light for footspeed on the tennis court.* *My setpoint is just over 170lbs; the weight i'd go to quickly if i didn't manage it. .... Yeah i know, Andre Agassi is/was 5'11" 177, but i just feel slower with the extra weight, even if i'm working out. Granted my workout routine is only 30minutes to 1 hr a day.

Re: Men Height and Weight

5' 11", 164.

I weigh myself every morning. If I weigh more than 163.5, I eat less that day. If I weigh 163.5 or less on Sunday, I get to have apple pancakes, otherwise gruel.

No morning snacks allowed . No afternoon snack until 4 PM, One evening snack at 7:30. Fruit OK any time. Sounds OCD, but the body responds well to habits like this.

And I keep reminding myself: "Nothing tastes as good as 'thin' feels."

Re: Men Height and Weight

You're right where i am then too TromboneAL. At/past 164, i just start to feel fat, and i can feel that fat roll start to hang over my bluejeans, especially when i sit down. But on man do I love the way i feel all slinky at less than 159.

I agree, i actually prefer being hungry here and there while at the lower weight.

6'6", 242lbs. Need to lose 20 lbs or so. My new job has a 10 min walk from the parking lot to my office building. Should be good for me ;-)

5' 11" 166 lbs fully clothed at my annual physical a couple weeks ago.

Every day I try to eat 100 to 200 grams of chocolate and drink a 6-pack of non-diet soda.

Re: Men Height and Weight

5"10" 192 fully clothed. 20# overweight. Would like to blame the in-progress divorce but eating whole DiGiorno pepperoni pizzas for dinner is a more likely culprit. I hate that it takes five minutes to put the weight on but a week of "good behavior" to get rid of it.
