for over 10 years ive tried to keep my weight steady at 140. think thats too low? think again. im fine with it. iam still healthy and very well nourished...maybe too much! there is too damm much temptation in this world. bombarded by deceptive, but enticing commercials like the carl's jr breakfast burger with the most annoying soundtrack. and then all the foodie ads in magazines. i try eat healthy. i eat about 10 grams of fiber per day, and i snack on such things as peanuts for a healthy heart and baked multi grain pita chips. i drink plenty of liquids daily and exercise too. i have a hard time focusing on my goals. i used to have strong willpower.

i got that off my chest.

You should read up on retraining your taste buds - very interesting and helpful.

i remember for 2 years, i set a goal to go on a cereal diet. just cereal for breakfast and lunch, followed by a reduced meal dinnertime, cutting out rice and meats. that was an amazing feat. to this day, iam not able to do that again. only last 1-2 days. currently, i love snacking on microwave popcorn, peanuts, pita chips, japanese rice crackers and store bought cookies. i cant avoid them, they are always on my mind. plus, i never rely on those tv diet gimmicks.

We cut out sugar and cereal years ago and I don't see us getting back on that train anymore. I use a lot of buckwheat though.

I'm still under thirty and peanuts fatten me, and they do it fast if I snack on them on a regular basis, I'd suppose this might be due to the phytoestrogen stuff? I do keep myself somewhat slim most of the time so I quickly notice when my belly starts growing.

But yeah, as Octo said sugar and cereal might be worth looking at when thinking about weight. I stopped these as well due to health reasons other than just weight. I'd suggest looking into raw food and that LCHF diet, I don't follow either of them right now (I have tried though) but would say they do work and change how one feels.

Nothing wrong with having a little extra padding in the winter.

Our diet is usually great, but the occasional beer doesn't do anybody any favors.
I so wish I could binge on peanuts, but I became allergic to them as I got older. dunno.gif
I want on a strict anti-candida diet and after three years of it I can't handle peanuts, cashews hazel nuts, tyramine, or anything with sulfites.
I guess I lost the enzymes to digest those.

What politics from both sides wants to teach us is that things are never complex. If you have your little package and something doesn't fit into that package, You don't know what to make of it so you want to dismiss it or then you will have to do the work of reconsidering your assumptions. - Michael Malice

When you work weird hours and sometimes for double shifts it's hard to keep a healthy diet.
A vending machine full of chips, m&m's and pretzels at the office doesn't help me anymore than the Burger King next door.

Killing yourself slowly. The slow deterioration of health generates a lot of money.

Just saying, if someones mother and grand mother and or father and grand father were all over weight, then, genetically speaking, he or she will probably also be over weight and all the dieting efforts in the world are, most likely, not going to help them lose very much weight...

My father is relatively thin and my grand father was relatively thin and so am i and i can eat like any amount of anything, anytime and hardly put on a pound...

I beg to differ, I find putting on weight quite easy to be honest, I have genes to store fat around the belly but I choose what I eat and excercise the extra fat away. Blaming obesity on genetics is harmful in my view. Unless someone has a serious problem with their liver, I can't see why regulating intake and using more energy wouldn't work. Sure, some people have it easier than others but saying any dieting in the world probably wouldn't work well is quite a stretch. About family members being fat contributing to obesity, I find it would just as well have to do with upbringing as genetics.
