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.
Admit it or not, i'll guarantee without any shadows of doubt whatsoever, that theres a helluva lot of people walking around who think their fathers are their fathers, when they really are not...

And so i shudder at the thought of how many, play around women, have lied to the, blinded by easy to get sex, guys they tell got them pregnant, when they really didnt and who are thus unknowingly railroaded and trapped into raising someone elses child or children...

Which would definitely explain at least some of the genetic discrepancies between parents and children who are and who are not fat and thin, tall and short, ect, ect...

I mean like, if your mother and father both have black hair and you have red hair, guess what? he aint your dad! and your moms a liar...

LCHF ~ Lifestyle, not a diet.

Been on it over a year. Lost 50lbs and a few meds. Have never felt better.

Our diet IS our health. The politicians took it away from us with GMO and the cholesterol scam.

Eat real food. Eat when you're hungry. (When you lay off refined carbs you won't BE hungry, btw.)

my dad and mom, they have an occassional snack late at night, but never gain weight. all the fattening foods settle on my waist area. i always check to see if i have any "love handles" when i was much younger, snacking on a late night burrito or burger was a joy. its murder now. we have fast food places that are open past 2am! for now, ive decided to eat only high fiber oatmeal for dinner along with some digestive biscuits as dessert.. until i can drop to 140. iam hovering around 141.

i got that off my chest.
After finding out I had diabetes I have had to be a more little careful with what I eat and in the last year I have managed to lose somewhere between 30-40 pounds and supposedly have both my high blood pressure and A1C levels under control.

Want to know my secret? I know nearly 0% percent on what I need to do about monitoring and controlling my diabetes (all I know is that I need to avoid sugar as much as possible, but nearly all calories come from either sugar and or fat)), but since I'm not working I don't eat as much sugary/caffeinated food, eat about 2 meals/1200 calories instead of 3 meals/2000+ a day, and being on food stamps often prevents me from just being able to eat what I want whenever I want.

That plus the fact that I don't 'stress' eat (eat to deal with depression, stress, etc) while working and such.

I don't know if that helps, but I think it kind of puts things in perspective in that we often eat in order to cope with things, we don't naturally have any mechanism to prevent us from graze eating, but if one is taken away from being able to eat whenever they want and/or taken away from a lot of the stress that may cause one to stress it, it is easier to control and or lose weight.

That plus my diabetes medication tended to make me to sick/nausea to be able to eat that much for many of the months that I took it.

All cells run on glucose for fuel, our body converts all the things we eat to glucose, just at different rate. Why sugar is so dangerous is because it's instant fuel and excess is stored as fat. Our body doesn't need to do anything under those conditions. Refined wheat is basically sugar, it converts to glucose as you chew it in your mouth. Diabetes type 2 is insulin resistance, your body's rebellion against boredom of not getting to do its thing.

If you want your body to run on fat for fuel (ketosis) you need to not only eliminate sugar but also refined everything.

Ppl around here are eliminating their type 2 diabetes with a lchf diet
