    Reading this while eating my favorite joint's cheesesteak with large fries. Lettuce, tomato, mayo, grilled onions and mushrooms. Reading this earlier made me hungry. If I am not careful I will get back up to 175 again.

    At 5' 5" and about 180-185...... I need to reduce the Pizza and Beer. But probably ain't gonna happen. Rum and Coke (caffeine free) is a guilty pleasure also.

    Swimsuit pics. Nah. I dont swim. I sink :)

    Its all good... I'm just giving Mr. Skinny aka BBar a hard time. I doubt Ive ever had a body fat under 20!

    In college I did have the XXL beer gut - 5'10" and 245. After school a buddy of mine got me into jogging and good diet and at one point I got down to 180, not slim at my height, but pretty good. I got married and back up to 205 :), bought the house and started wood processing down to 190... Now with the kids I'm back up to 205 and trying to get back on a diet again but not sticking to it!!

    Maybe all of you will be the inspiration I need. But man its Oktoberfest season!!!!!

    Of course I'm skinny, I'm loading 8 cord of wood into 3 stoves for six months out of the year. I end up looking like this by the time April rolls around:

    Almost sounds like the Paleo diets out there. I follow the advice of Mark Sisson - Primal Blue Print. No carbs or sugar. No vegetables without meat and very little fruit until you hit your goal Thought I would miss the carbs, but I am getting so much protein, lost the need and I was a lover of pasta and bread

    I love carbs. They're tasty S.O.B.s.

    I make sure I get a lot of protein to maintain and prevent muscle loss. Apart from that I consume a lot of vegetables and fruit. Put me in front of a massive salad and I'll make it disappear.

    But, in the end, it is whatever works for you. And a lot of have had a lot of success with low carb nutrition.

    Anegada in March....about 225 here, fatter than I need to be thats for sure! Im trying to lose by portion control. Typically I only drink coffee for breakfast, not eat lunch, then eat a big dinner, wait a few hours, go to sleep.....not good. Ive tried 3 squares lately, and dropped about 13 lbs.......Im 6'3", so, I like to get to 200-210...we will see.......also cut out most sugars, eat very few carbs, dont drink.......eh, Im old (50 now), and on my best day ever never had a 6 pack, so unlikely I will get one now.....Tried the P90x thing for a few months, lol, but that was too painful for me!

    edit:( yea, got to feeling guilty that I challenged you guys to put a swimsuit pic up (above), so, put my money where my big mouth is!)

    It's taking everything I have not to push the magic button on your new swimsuit, but I figure, by me replying, it may force you to see that again also ;lol
