I find it most interesting that so many of us on PT are women, why do you think that is?

I'm a guy. I'm digging this ad of the woman sticking her chest out below btw!!!

To answer your question, I think women have more pressure to be thin than men to. Health problems drove me here, and I think without that, i'd still be 30 pounds heavier and eating what I was.

Here's an interesting tidbit from research done in the UK a few years back -- online emergency support/helplines (trauma, suicide, etc) are getting unprecedented traffic from men compared to their phone lines...apparently the anonymity and extra degree of removal makes them more likely to reach out and open up. So bring on the boys! It can only help the gender divide for both sides to understand the other's relationship with food (sidebar: I think it's weird to use the word "relationship" in this context, but since we use it to punish, reward, anesthetize, etc., it's frighteningly appropriate).

I thought this was a question directed towards me, "men?". Then I click in to see that you're asking women a question. Well, I'm a man. I've gotten superb recommendations for gifts for my wife here, thank you ladies. I'm here. My group are my buddies on my cycling team.
