I just cut as much carbs as I can. Whatever carbs I do consume are complex carbs such as oatmeal etc. Also eat a lot of fruits. And vegies whenever I can.

So high protein, low carbs. Key to losing fat.

I have leaned out so much just by dumping the white bread I used to eat and replacing with brown bread. Unbelievable.

    Seriously, you need to enter this Niche. Sometimes you come off rather arrogant and having 'foot in your mouth' disease but you seem to be passionate about this Niche.

    And you look to be in decent shape.

    Maybe a calling ?

      That niche is over-saturated.

        Was that a joke? It sounds like something Ianfear would say.

        by the way, I've read that even diet sodas will make you gain weight. Can anyone explain how that's possible? I drink quite a lot of Diet Mountain Dew.

          Cos they replace the sugars with artificial sweeteners that are even worse.

              Sweeteners spike the insulin levels which will lead to fat gain over time.

              Claude,
              from what I understand it does spike Insulin levels and it makes you want to eat that much more.

              That being said I drink Diet Coke and Coke Zero like a madman.

              It doesn't seem to affect me in this way.

              But apparently others it has

            I thought you would say something about saturated fats.

            In fact, when I used to play pool (billiards) for a living, that was my professional name, Saturated Fats.

          Thats the thing, no one understands. The mechanisms involved are poorly understood so anything which people say on the subject are speculative. Just do what you want and what makes you happy. Weight loss isn't exactly hard, cut out bad carbs, exercise 4 days a week, your be at a healthy weight, simple.

                    What was it like ? Was their immediate infatuation ? Or total disgust ?? What did Claude's wife think ? And Dan if you are married ( honestly, I cant remember if you are or not) what did your wife think ?

                    Were their any passes or flirtatious language made within your group... as your wives were off powdering their noses in the ladies restroom ?

                    Were others in the room staring with utter repulsion at you two oddities ?

                    These are questions your audience needs , NO demands, to know !!

                      Can I have the EXACT step by STEP scenario of what happened when you and Claude actually met up face to face and had lunch ? No. My mind has blocked out most of it.

                      What was it like ? You know the feeling you have the very moment you fart and it's wetter than you expected? It wasn't as good as that.

                      Was their immediate infatuation ? Yes, Claude was immediately and thoroughly infatuated with himself.

                      Or total disgust ?? Total? No. Disgust? Yes.

                      What did Claude's wife think ? No idea.

                      And Dan if you are married ( honestly, I cant remember if you are or not) what did your wife think ? My wife supports any charity work I do.


                      Were their any passes or flirtatious language made within your group... as your wives were off powdering their noses in the ladies restroom ? Wives weren't there. Claude flirted with himself. I flirted with plucking my eyes out with a soup spoon.

                      Were others in the room staring with utter repulsion at you two oddities ? I'm not sure anyone saw me. Claude's head took up most of the booth.

                      These are questions your audience needs , NO demands, to know !!

                Ok, let me explain why my post was incredibly funny.

                You said to exercise 4 days a week. I purposely took it to mean to exercise for the entire four days, nonstop. And that is why I said "96 hours! Are you trying to kill me?"

                You see, I was responding to your purposely misinterpreted idea, to exercise for 96 hours a week. And that was the joke.

                And that is why I am a comedy genius.

                You see, the funniest thing to hear, is an explanation of a joke that bombed. Audiences love that. Their laughter is so deafening, it's like they weren't laughing at all.

                OK, here is why that last sentence is funny..............

                    By the way (being serious now). It's only funny to me if I know the person got the joke, and acted like they didn't...or just didn't laugh. But it isn't funny if they really didn't get the joke.

        Not really. Your voice in the crowd might be the voice that some respond to better than others. I heard it said the other day that saturation just means there is a lot of demand in a market. Even a small piece of a big market can be better than a huge piece of a small one. It may be saturated but not OVERLY.


        There are a TON of weight trainers on the internet... but one relatively unknown/obscure one got a new follower (me) just the other day...


        I think it's a great niche. Man I am SOOOO a believer in low carbs. There is only ONE reason it doesn't work for a person, and that is if they are playing around and not really doing it.


        In every low carb thread there are guys saying "You cant really go THAT low..." and they are usually FAT!


        If you are the voice that has the nerve to jump out and say that to them, and debate, then there are going to be a TON of people who your voice rings true to. Even though others will hate you for it.


        There are some people who know, and already say to themselves in their inward dialogue, whatever you are saying...


        When you say it, you ring true to them, and give voice to what they know inside, or what they are already feeling/thinking... They will follow you. They believe in something about you more than they do the guys who are trying to sugar coat it.


        I agree. I think this is your niche.

          It took me 6 months to lose 24lbs by exercising, cutting out sugar and wheat from my diet and eating high protein low carb.

          I lost an additional 22lbs in 5 weeks time during a recent stay in the hospital. The medication I was on for those 5 weeks made all cooked foods taste terrible to me so I only ate fruit, raw salads, juices and yogurt and the weight came off without any exercise.

          The hospital dietitian wanted me to drink Ensure but after looking at her I decided not to take her advice as she needed to lose about 100lbs.

          Of course some foods are are really good for you while others like sugar are toxic but what this proved to me is that all reduced calorie diets work if you are able stick to one.

    I lost +20 pounds when I stopped drinking soda & basically anything loaded with sugar. I wasn't even trying to lose weight (seriously). I went from soda to bottled water.

    I'm no weight loss guru but If anyone wants to lose weight, my advice is stop soda/sugar & see If that helps.

    How many pounds you lost?

    Cardio and intensive workouts are great to lose fat.

      Not too sure, all I know is I see more definition in my abs and more striations than before.

    Congrats, really.
    Personally? I learned about BMR, and then i started counting calories while keeping BMR in mind.

    Results? 40lbs lost in a year (with some exercise, of course).

    Anyone feel free to PM me if you have no clue what im talking about, but you may want to search Google for BMR and go from there.

    On a very serious note:

    There seems to be a relation between artificial sweeteners and macular degeneration.
    I'd avoid them. Minimize sugar. Use honey, real syrup, stevia or agave based sweeteners.

      No, Doctors prescribe 3 fruits a day, and 4 vegetables, so you will get so fed up with your untra healthy diet, that you will head straight for the nearest GMO Maccers, for an extra helping of evil sugar!

      But if you have Cancer, you can eat crap everyday, apparently, but don't worry there is no conspiracy, (apart from why do doctors prescribe a crap diet if you are sick)?

      On a more serious note, l have 2 fruits a day, (a banana with another fruit, etc) and if l added another fruit, it wouldn't work with the other ones, and l would get sick of the three there.

      Ok, rant over, but Doctors are wonderful, helpful people, and the handful that should be shot aren't worth mentioning!

      Empty pool, nonsense, there would be an inflatable donut in there somewhere?

        Shane, I am so relieved you are now into cats and haven't mentioned bunnies in a good while. I am so aggravated with that bunny that lives next door and has used my driveway for his potty. Now that it's gotten warmer, he's rev'd up the poop routine in a straight line up the neighbor's yard. The dang thing is a huge poop factory...and if you'd see him, he's really small. Just wanted to let you know I'm liking the cats a lot better, except for the one across the street that lives to tease my pup.

        Shane,

        I'm very open to the naturopathic ways and know they have a lot of success with
        Type 2 diabetes. A guest at my hotel was recently diagnosed with Type 2, and is going
        the naturopathic route. It seems to be working for him. His brother was not so fortunate
        and is back to taking shots.

        My guest's diabetes was discovered after a bout with pleurisy - basically the same
        symptoms as a heart attack. His first doc, a general practitioner, actually thought it was
        a pretty major heart attack.
