There is a lot to be said for incidental exercise.
Studies have shown that people who are classed as being blessed with high metabolisms and can eat all that they want don't have higher metabolisms.
The truth of the matter is that these people are masters of the incidental exercise and are forever "on the go".

Having said that, very large people need a very large amount of incidental exercise which is probably best found in doing some very serious intentional exercise! :shock: :lol:

Incidentally, I'm "on the go" A LOT these days yet the scales aren't really being very kind as a result, but thankfully my clothes certainly are!!! :wink:

For the past week my weight has fluctuated between 87 and 88. It seems to be shedding at a rate of about 800 grams per week, which matches my calculations. I'm eating an average of 5500 kJ each day to create a deficit of about 3000 kJ. That means I can expect to lose about a kilo of stored energy in fat and muscle every ten days or so - with a margin factored in for natural variance and error.

One highlight of moving away from bread is I'm eating more rabbit food - er, I mean salad greens. And since I'm hungrier at mealtimes, lettuce and its ilk is beginning to taste kinda okay.

Got it down to a science (and yet wisely factoring variance and error). :)

That is one of the advantages of eating more healthily...you start to taste food anew and appreciate it better.

I'm going to post my recipe for a salad that I've made up that is really tasty soon. Definitely worth trying out and it is very quick to knock up...so stay tuned and I hope you will enjoy my variation on the rabbit food theme! :lol:

Ah, the wondrous cabbage! It goes with everything, pretty much. It is low in kilojoules and has plenty of nutrients. As such, it has been a significant part of my diet the past few weeks,acting as a "filler" instead of bread.

It's little things like that - substitutions and the formation of better habits - that help make the difference between good and bad eating.

I've finally got around to posting my salad recipe in the Healthy Recipes section Marc.
Who knows you might enjoy my brand of rabbit food! :shock: :lol:
At the very least - it will fill you up without blowing out your calorie count. :)

After half a month of slight overeating I've clamped down on it and got back into a weight-loss frame of mind. I've found that ditching the biscuits and chocolate was easier than ever, since I've done it a number of times in the past.

One thing is certain: I definitely feel better after a week of not eating highly refined foods.

I baked some reasonably healthy biscuits today.

Wholemeal flour, rolled oats, water, an egg, baking powder, lemon juice, vegetable oil and salt. Mixed up and made into a 1cm layer in the baking tray. 30 mins in a 220c electric oven. Came out hard and crunchy, good for a snack, healthier than the store-bought stuff.

I find that going to the effort to make them means there is less inclination to plough through them quickly. They taste good and I want them to last as long as possible. :-)

Not to mention all the calories you burn while you are preparing them! 8)
Also - you know exactly what is in them...no nasty surprises. :)

Nothing to report except that there's nothing to report.

My weight is stable and I've maintained good eating habits. Since March I've had a running battle with bread, but that's been resolved more or less. I no longer eat bread, but do occasionally have a substitute such as a crumpet or wrap or home-made batter around a piece of fish. This way, I don't associate the taste and satiety of bread with something that looks like bread, and I eat less of the base product (refined carbs) because I don't mentally class crumpets or wraps as an edible commodity.

Yes, "smoke and mirrors", but it works.
