ExperianScaresCthulhu: 100 pounds in four months means something else was happening -- and it wasn't exercise.that is too fast of a weight loss, unless he had surgery and/or a liquid diet under a physician's care.half the time, now a days, there's surgery involved, but you don't find that out until the bottomof the story, or the follow up.
GBmanNC: Someone should email this to the fat news reporter lady...But seriously, how is losing weight by exercising more and eating less a news story?
dopekitty74: digitalrain: Gah. I *so* need to lose weight. A lot of it. A huge part of my problem is willpower. As in I have none.Add that to the fact that my husband and kids DON'T need to lose weight and don't stop buying allthe stuff that I crave.Sigh...My hubby could do with a better diet, but isn't cooperative. Veggies are the hardest things to get into him. Won't have broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage or brussels sprouts. I can live without the last two myself, but love broccoli. He's also far too dependant on starchy things like pasta and potatoes. I wonder if blue potatoes are healthier than white ones? Those are tasty but expensive.
D2T: starsrift: acad1228: Many doctors will tell you that exercise will do precious little to help with weight loss. It will help with endurance and muscle tone, but is only minimally effective in helping one to lose weight. If a person maintains their current diet and just starts exercising, they're going to have a hard time taking off much weight.You need to see a new doctor, one that understands metabolism and caloric requirements.Agree with both of you, kinda. Exercise will help you get into better shape, obviously, and raise your metabolism. But purely from a weight standpoint, you may go up or stay the same. Muscle weighs more than fat. People shouldn't be so caught up in losing weight and more concerned with being fit. When you first start working out, especially if you do weight training, expect to gain weight. It'll happen. But keep with it, and go by how you look. Daily or weekly photos are a much better metric of progress than BMI or total weight.
Shatner's Bassoon: one man dropped a third of his body weight by cutting out 'white food'I made my own meals and went and bought my own food, like grilled chicken and fishDid he dye his chicken and fish a different colour, or is the Fail's headline inaccurate as usual?

dahmers love zombie: Shostie: My only nourishment consists of food that is white: eggs, sugar, grated bones, the fat of dead animals, veal, salt, coco-nuts, chicken cooked in white water, fruit-mould, rice, turnips, camphorised sausages, pastry, cheese (white varieties), cotton salad, and certain kinds of fish (without their skin). I boil my wine and drink it cold mixed with the juice of the Fuschia. I am a hearty eater, but never speak while eating, for fear of strangling.I don't remember what that's from...
