I wanted to do something....

Something for me !

So that's why I went on the Chili Dog Diet. I eat one or two chili dogs and I am not hungry at all.

At least for an hour.

But this reminds me, I used to live off chili dogs (called Coney Islands) every Saturday of my junior high career. 5 for a buck, with onions and cheese at Chili and Pool, a very fine establishment. If I had recently gotten food poisoning there, I might lay off and have White Castles the following week. What an upscale life I led.

I never had Chili and Pool food, but White Castle burgers are so bad that my parents would not allow me to eat them and they were adamant about it. By the time I was 12 my big brother had his drivers' license, though, and he would take me to White Castle where we would sneak a greaseburger and pledge to one another that we would never tell our parents.

Compared to today's kids, I guess this malfeasance was pretty mild! I was sure scared that I would get "caught", though.

Thanks for the memory. I had forgotten all about that.

I could never do a Twinkies diet or even the Jared ( Subway ) diet . I want to start the wine & appetizers diet . All you eat are appetizers and wash them down with wine or liquor maybe light beer but only occasionally .

I think additional Twinkies research is called for.

Coincidentally I seem to be getting very hungry...

Off topic here - but I've been to a 3 star Michelin restaurant in France - 10 courses and we skipped the cheese course. The portions were smaller, but about course 6 we were stuffed - very interesting food, though. Nothing that was traditional at all. They were in to the 'food and taste science' so paired not usually paired foods. All in all an interesting experience. Might do it again, but it hits the pocketbook (100 Euros each prix fixe *without* the wine) - that was 6 years ago, too.

Enjoy your one year ER anniversary!

Yup - talk about 'dropping a load.'

No poop for 2 months

Just think of the LBYM possibilities due to savings on toilet paper

I tried low carb high fat and it worked for me. And i believe carb are the primary reason for the fat ppl in our soceity. the right fat is good for us and is not making us fat. Its like saying you look sweet if you eat sugar...silly silly

Good grief! That 8-pound event after 2 months has got to hurt! I wonder if it could have set a Guinness world record, if they keep track of such a thing.

I did the same thing a few years ago on here. I thought I was going to be lynched for saying that. It resulted in a many, many page "discussion".

However, I have also found it easier to stick to 1,800-2,000 calories per day when eating a higher protein diet with moderate carbs. I feel full and satisfied much longer when eating a good amount of protein and fat instead of tons of carbs.

I also have found that exercise is not the benefit on weight loss that I thought it was. For instance, I will lose more weight by eating 1,800 calories per day with no exercise than if I eat 2,400 calories per day and burn 600 per day on the treadmill.

Not suggesting people don't exercise because it provides other health benefits. But just don't think you can eat that extra 400 calorie slice of pizze and burn it off by working out for 400 cals.
There are several problems with exercising as the main method for losing weight. If you lift weights then you increase your muscle mass. Muscle is heavy so your weight will go up. Muscle does use more calories than fat or no muscle, but you must continue to increase or your muscles get lazy.

If you try to work cardio, all you are really doing is making you muscles more efficient at burning calories. The end result is you have to constantly increase the amount of cardio you do in order to continue to see weight loss. The other side of it is cardio really doesn't burn that many calories. As inaccurate as they are, look at the number of calories you burn on a treadmill or elliptical. It typically takes me about 15 minutes to burn off a Coke, according to those estimates. Using those estimates it will take almost an hour to really hit any decent calorie use. One thing those estimates are good for is a deterrent to eating food you don't need. I look at it from the perspective that this Big Mac and fries are going to cost me 1.5 hours on the elliptical. It makes some food taste really bad.
