I actually wish it were such a simple solution.... I eat less and more healthy than i ever have and am exercising regularly weekly and I am losing weight slower than i ever have - frustrating to say the least - I blame age
How about three-times weekly?

And it's true, age does slow down your metabolism - which means you don't need so much food and so save money too as you get older

Hi I hadn't realised it was this simple. I am a 6 ft male and I weigh 85Kg.

At what rate do I burn energy please ?

Thanks.
First of all reduce those 6 feet to 2. More than enough.
And we don't just burn energy here in CH, we recycle it.

sorry i meant i exercise weekly, (i.e regular) that didn't mean i just exercise once a week..... but i aint going to say 3 times a week because some weeks i may only do something once a week other weeks i may go to the gym or whatever 3 or 4 times

Yeah, ok fair answer, perhaps I should have quoted the other bloke who said its all about in vs out. Nice and easy statement but unless you know the rate at which you burn energy it's to general a statement. I can eat tonnes - loads - every day without excercise and my weight hardly moves. In summer I also follow the triathlon season and at its peak do excessive exercise every day. My weight never moves by more than 1KG either way. I eat about the same all year.

So how does that work then ?

Hey, you just posted and deleted an excellent post. The one saying the body is such a complex self-righting system etc...I second that.

I think it also answered Mike B. I don't want to spend time answering his post, an "triathelte" speaking so errr, we'll leave it at that

Re: Diet Programs That Work

Thanks, but it seemed to me that elaborating on a precise idea with such vague and generic words somehow didn't contribute much to the topic and I better delete it again because I was too lazy finding better words.

Actually my muslims friends usually lose a lot of weight during ramada. It has to do with changing your metabolism...Of course I do not know how long can you go by eating only at night

Not meant that way, I elaborated on your question MikeB, and he agreed on my answer and was happy he didn't have to reply himself. I deleted the post later because I thought I hadn't written it very well, being distracted on the phone.. all a bit silly to discuss now because it's gone.
But it'd make more sense if you read it.

No not you at all Simon, I was annoyed at the condascending tone of the other poster (niranjan) when i was making a perfectly valid point that different people burn energy and different rates so it is unfair to point to obese people and simply say "eat less".

Well "eat more" would be the wrong advice no?

Its a metaphorical question. So the point I made about "you cant just say eat less", you esponded "you say 'eat more' ?" in other words its either one or the other, yes or no. Of course its neither of those, its more complex than just saying "eat less or eat more" you have to take in energy burn rate (metabolism) lifestyle, excercise and so on. So I was trying to (light heartedly) give you the example I was always told when up with this argument. Ask someone have they stopped beating their wife yet, yes or no. The point being, its not a yes or no question. the answer is "i dont beat my wife".

I think the point hasnt come across very well. I will leave it on the forum as an argument-gone-wrong! no offence was meant at any stage rest assured.
