Here’s an older post from a practitioner of calorie restriction for longevity purposes, called “Calorie Poisoning: Civilisation’s Exploding Killer Disease“. While I’m working on getting to a normal BMI for health reasons, and aesthetic reasons, there is a lot of food for thought in the article.

Comments: Seem to have stalled slightly. About 4 weeks ago, a week before I started the blog, I was up to 225. I’ve gotten as low as 207, but I’m lingering around 210. Not a bad loss over 4 weeks, but I have a long way to go. Waist is 36″ today, down an inch since the start. It looks like I will have to be more careful from here, and exercise more. We’ll see how the next week goes. I need to get some more vegetables in, too.
Some quick and easy recipies here.
