    The opposite problem here -- I lost strength and size during a recent 6 weeks off in CONUS between overseas work assignments. Moving around a lot between vacation homes, relatives houses, etc, I just didn't have reliable access to resistance training or as much control over my own menu. I ate as responsibly as I could and did bodyweight HIIT/plyometrics a few times per week. Now that I'm back overseas it is humbling to scale my bench, deadlift, squat, OHP, and pullups down so much, but that is where I'm at now. Per the OT, I really think diet supports whatever you are doing (or not doing) for exercise.

    Update: 209.8 this morning, first time breaking the 210 barrier. And that's even WITH having had a burger yesterday for lunch (salad for dinner though), and the boat-anchor limiting exercise by my needing to ride herd on her. Thirty pounds off by diet alone over six months... if I had proper gym facilities it probably woulda taken half the time, though I doubt I'll ever see 160 again.

    Not disputing the importance of exercise, if anything I think my experience reinforces how much of a handicap it is trying to trim down *without* it.

    There is no substitute for hard exercise. Our bodies were built to work and to work hard. "Light weight lifting" is a feel good thing for those who are either misguided, afraid of hard work or both. Buy a food scale, eat simple and clean, count everything honestly and lift heavy focusing on complex barbell movements and watch the weight fall off. Stick to simple, single ingredient whole foods such as lean red meat, chicken, fish, veggies, potatoes, rice (white), fruit and nuts.

    If you only diet, once you are finished, your body will look like a limp dick. If you exercise and diet, you can end up looking like a hard dick. And everyone wants to end up looking like a hard dick.

Prior to that, we just thought that weight loss surgery worked solely by restricting intake and, in the case of gastric bypass, creating some component of malabsorption. As diabetes become such a huge component of the obese population, we began to notice that that population's blood sugars normalized immediately after surgery and it was independent of the weight loss. It turns out that the mechanism was a lot more complicated than we thought, with vastly more metabolic implications.
    It also helps to illuminate why weight loss is not just a simple matter of calorie intake vs calorie expenditure.

    Iím a poster boy for this. Blood sugar stabilized with 12hrs post op. Lost a total of 150+ lbs and have maintained for 12 years. Iím convinced the surgery changed my body type because I now have a much more normal relationship with food and eating.
    Before - almost no correlation between diet and weight loss. Iím an ex-footballer and Iíve worked out all my life.
    After - total control over weight via diet.

    I think there is a subset of people that react differently to food than others. Just like some people canít drink alcohol responsibly - something is wired differently- itís not just a willpower problem.

    I am also convinced there is something else going on beside simply calories in verses out. It works for the majority of the normal guys but not the outliers. In training camp everything was measured and we got weighed before and after every workout. All of us burning approximately the same number of calories. At 265 lbs I had to eat 1500 less calories than the guy next to me just to keep my weigh under control. He got extra ice cream and still lost weight in camp.
