Back at the forum after a regrettable absence, I'm surfing threads that look interesting. It's always amusing to happen upon myself in them, giving opinions and advice I should have heeded!
The newest thing here upon my return, is "higher protein"--discussed in other threads. As an older person (75 this month) it's probably something I'll be looking at.
Meanwhile, two effective measures six weeks in:
--Zero alcohol (always my worst temptation)
--lower fat (as in 0 fat Greek yogurt, no cream, moderate butter and oil)
--more water (I've discovered "essenced" soda water until somebody tells me it's deadly!)
As ever, it's a bit discouraging when the BMI charts put me at "obese" when I look like a perfectly "normal" person in the mirror. I think in most weight management discussions, too little attention is paid to where the fat is located, in addition to how much of it there is. I've always appreciated Gary Taubes's realistic discussion of this.
And whatever happened to Gary Taubes? I'll have to find out the latest.
Best wishes everyone.
