thats amazing. in 5 posts, 5 different bodies you have 5 different results.


when I eat a lot of meat, i get fat. I have put on 20lbs in the last 8 mos because I have been eating cow, chicken and other foul. My body does not process meat well.
I do best on what Ceilie described.. veggies, nuts, fats, fruits.. and eating ALL day.
calorie counting for me ends in starvation. I eat something until my stomach stops growling. Thats it. Andit doesnt matter what it is.
I remember, and I have said this before.. I used to eat EASILY 3000k a day in cashews and other nuts. I would take a quart size zip lock baggie and snack on that all day between meals. A small water melon for breakfast, spinach , almond milk, figs, squash, etc.. little bits of everything but in the end, HUGE amounts of nuts.
I dropped weight like CRAZY. And all blood tests came back wonderfully.

now Im eating meat?
I have serious problems

@Rockhead,
As a reader who newly discovered Noam Chomsky after an inadvertent remark from joefromchicago, I've got to say: Classical propaganda.

@Thomas,
Noam would have booted you out of his AI class if he read your comment - he always insisted on distinctions like "historic" v. "historical", "classic" v. "classical" etc. Computers never make such mistakes, he kept saying - so presumably one corollary is you just passed Turing's test Smile

Sounds like your body processes meat too well. But I get the idea, and I feel your pain. Smile

@jespah,
I had a new thought on this subject... I've always thought that the body you have is essentially a true reflection of your lifestyle (barring any medical conditions, crazy drugs or recent radical changes).

You might want to consider the idea that, if you're eating healthy foods in proper proportions and if you're exercising regularly and sufficiently (all of which it seems like you're doing), that you may not need to worry about your actual weight any more. Your lifestyle is healthy and your body will reflect it.

Theoretically, your body should acclimate to exactly the size and composition it needs to be in relation to your specific physiology.

It seems unlikely (if not impossible) for anyone to gain back very much weight if they're running marathons, much less if they are eating healthy foods as well. If your weight were to increase then the same amount of exercise will start to be harder and will burn off more calories. So as long as your exercise and calorie intake are consistent, your whole physiology should self regulate to exactly the composition it needs to be efficient within its own specific biological boundaries (genetics).

You might "want" to be thinner than your body wants to be (in its most efficient state), but it wouldn't necessarily be any healthier for you to be thinner.

It might be time to forget about the scale at this point and trust your body to adjust itself to its needs given your current lifestyle.

Just a thought (I hope someone else hasn't said it already, I haven't had time to review the whole thread).

@rosborne979,
Thank you. And that makes sense (it may turn out to somewhat be the case). Smile

@jespah,
This is just my pet theory of course (so it could be BS), but I also wouldn't be surprised if there was a little bit of a pendulum effect with weight, as your metabolism swings back and forth around it's efficiency point. But eventually it should settle into its most efficient pattern based around the physical conditions (genetics, exercise and food) that are imposed on it.

Over all it sounds like you're doing a fantastic job. I just wish I could do as well Wink

@rosborne979,
Thank you.

I am probably due for an increase in thyroid meds, too. I suspect that's a part of this. Smile

@jespah,
Well, I have been working out (zumba, yoga, circuit) three times a week, sometimes more, since Dec 10th and have only lost 5 lbs, and that occurred the first week. Since then, I have not lost an ounce and have the same measurements - I don't know what's going on. I ate soup and salads and small amounts of protein, no starches (to speak of), and hardly any fat or sugar. I can't explain it, but it's downright depressing.

Anyway, I hope I'm getting more toned.
