I dropped 15Kg by paying a bit of attention to the nutrition information on labels. I used to eat biscuits by the pack and never even bothered looking at what's in them (mostly flour stuck together with fat, apparently). Or "healthy" fruit snack bars...usually more sugar in those than in chocolate.

Fortunately, I`ve found that I like dry Ryvita with a drink.

I`m slowly earning muscle. Heavy exercise uses calories and muscle tissue uses more calories for maintainance. So rather than bringing my calorie intake down to match my body`s requirements, I`m trying to raise my body`s requirements to my calorie intake :)

Actually, weight training is fun. It improves my mood, I can get laughing at the walls high from it, and it`s cheap(*) and healthy. Win all round.

* No need for a gym - gravity is the same at home and dumbells plus weights is enough for almost everything.

It used to be said that celery was the only NEGATIVE calorie food; it took more to digest it than it provided you in the eating. I guess that's changed...?

What changed was that some companies were fined for peddling "negative calories food" lies. There`s no such thing and never has been. Urban myth at best, dangerous lies for profit at worst. You get a net gain of calories from eating anything else that humans can digest. Celery would fill you up and thus stop you eating stuff with a higher net calorie gain, but it does have a net calorie gain.

The only ingestible thing that causes a net calory loss, as far as I know, is cold zero-calorie liquid (your body has to use energy to heat the liquid to body temperature), but drinking enough of it to lose more than a few grams of weight would kill you.

Screw calories.
I eat low cal all week so I can eat whatever I want on weekends. But you can have some delicious low cal food. Not that store bought rice-cake crap. Real food. And good size portions to boot.

This weekend is apple pie and home made French dips with my personal au jus recipe. {the secret is beer} But then on Monday I'll make a pinto beans and a big pot of split pea soup {screw ham, put some bacon in there!}. With those things and salad {home made dressing} I`ll do okay calorie wise. Which makes room for beer.

Even if celery is a "negative calorie" food, the digestion isn't calculated here. That is (maybe) a pile of 200 calories of celery. It isn`t eaten yet.
