    I'm horrible about calorie counting. I just don't do it. I've been trying to get back down to around 225 lbs for a long while now. I was around 285 lbs and started exercising doing light weight lifting and walking about 5 miles a day. I'm down around 245 now and have started running some. Like you said in the article Will, exercise just didn't seem like it was working itself. I ate healthier, but really didn't count calories. I ran across a buddy that had dropped a bunch of weight. He has been using the hand method for calorie control. I've started doing it about 2 weeks ago with the exercise and it feels like I am back to losing weight... although I have cheated a little! My clothes are fitting loser. Just have to get around some scales to see if it is true. Here is what I've been going by, but I've modified what I eat with 3 meals a day and about 1/2 of what the portioning calls for:

    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.
    You really have to ask why Conservatives have guns? Because Liberals block freeways, burn cities, throw Molotov cocktails, loot, turn over cop cars, and think this behavior is Socially Acceptable.

    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.
