  • The strategy that I used was the Hacker's diet [fourmilab.ch]. Worked for losing 20 pounds, and I don't get winded easily any more.

    As for why it is good to do that, read The Way We Eat Now [harvard-magazine.com] and The Deadliest Sin [harvardmagazine.com]. Coming from a family with a really nasty history of heartattack, stroke, and adult onset diabetes, I take this rather seriously.

    And about Tye, well if I was married to his wife I might have a weight problem as well. Something about her being an award-winning cook who likes making desserts...
    • Losing weight has never been hard for me. I have read the Hacker's Diet and agree in principal but I am a man of extremes - in everything.

      I also don't have a hard time gaining weight. Jean has only been here in the US for a little over a month now. It is just extremely difficult since she can't drive nor is public transportation readily available. Between work, taking care of her, planning a wedding that is happening in another stated, yadda yadda yadda - just not easy.

      As far as award winning desserts
    • The great thing about the Hacker's Diet is how you can adopt whatever parts you like. I'm tracking my weight but not doing any meal plans, presently. This is enough to give me an awareness of what I eat and encourage me to be a little more reasonable. There's also the optional exercise program; I actually used that last year for a short while before I started doing weight tracking. Currently I'm not doing the exercises but plan to start them up again soon.
