    Per prior comments, make sure it's worth it as typical testing borders on useless unless you do some homework and make sure it's a full panel and always ask for a copy of your blood work. Good luck

    Not.

    I call it the pecan pie rule.

    A generous piece of pecan pie has about 500 calories.

    If you get on a road bike, and ride it HARD for an hour, you burn about 500 calories. And I'm not talking about puttering around the neighborhood, I'm talking about head down, lungs pumping, hard riding.

    It's a lot easier to lose weight by foregoing dessert, than it is to exercise it off.

    Gents,
    Iíve been ďheavyĒ for years, 5í10Ē usually @230#. Working out only makes me hungry, if I downhill one ski day Iíll eat EVERYTHING I can lay hands on for three days. I retired as an LEO desk jockey five years ago, got a desk job at the old department for three more, then totally retired two years ago. I thought getting away from pushing papers and working around my house and property would help with the weight. Wrong! My weight eventually crept up to 249#. Pills for blood pressure, blood sugar and cholesterol are an evening routine.

    Last October I went to a new younger doctor and his advice was to cut way back on carbs, so Iíve been trying to keep it between 50gm and 75gm per day. Started in November and as of the first of February Iíve tapered off at 25# lost. Itís still dropping but not at the same rate. I feel much better and my BP has gone down. I quit eating bread, rice, pastryís, bagels, I limit potatoes and corn to a fraction of what I was eating. I do eat raw sweet potatoes, rutabagas, carrots, and radishes but they are peeled and sliced so that Iím controlling portions over a couple days instead of eating all that in one meal. I reward myself with a beer a few times a week but Iíve pretty much given up sodas and juices. The majority of meat I eat is venison and chicken. Iíve learned how to eat out with less carb intake.
    Really Iím hoping that at 60 years old this becomes a life changer. My next doctors appointment is in April, Ikm hoping we can get me off some of the medication.
    My wife (the gym rat) is asking that we get pizza tonight to celebrate getting our tax refund, I guess Iíll have to make a ďsacrificeĒ.
