||There is no perfectly one size fits all diet. However, we can each figure out what works well for us with reference to research on 1) fat loss, 2) nutrition, 3) exercise ... and any other aspect of healthy living. Veg, fruit, proteins, good fats, grains ... some further definition therein should be reasonable enough for most people.

I am a professional living in Greater Vancouver, BC. I am 5' 0" (152 cm) and small framed, so my RMR is very low and I burn far fewer calories in exercise. I might mention here that the bit of brain which controls appetite strongly believes that I am a 6'8" lumberjack.
Other important tibits about me:
- I prefer goal oriented and positive conversations
- I stay in groups in which we mutually support each other.
- I am a skeptic. I am completely open to new ideas and suggestions with evidence.
I am 50 yo. In between jobs.
Isolated in the woody suburbs of Boston. Happily married, no children.
I started to practice Vipassana meditation as a way to be happy and get to be in the moment. I. I study Buddhism as well.
Important milestones that I hope to cross.
To reach 224 lbs - that is 16 stone!
To reach 219 lbs - finally be under 100kg!
To reach 216 lbs - that's 10% lost!
To reach 210 lbs - 15 stone!
To reach 204 lbs - that's 15% lost!
To reach 199 lbs - onederland!
To reach 196 lbs - 14 stone.
To reach 192 lbs - that's 20% lost!
To reach 182 lbs - end of obesity, and 13 stone.
To reach 180 lbs - that's 25% lost!
To reach 168 lbs - 12 stone and 30% lost!
To reach 154 lbs - 11 stone.
And then: to reach 152lbs - "normal" BMI for 5'5.5" height.
Eventually reach my lowest weight of 138 lbs again (that was me in late 2007/early 2008 - that is middle of "normal" for my height, and means my clothes fit well).
