Hello all are you looking to drop 3 to 5 pounds a week and don't want any green slurm, kale, skim milk, and exercise and don't want to give up bacon and butter and whatever else taste like heaven, well look no further.

Weigh yourself every morning
Eat half of your Breakfast you would normally eat
Lunch eat beef jerky ( preferably Wild Bills)
Dinner eat whatever you want
Cheat 2 out of 7 days of the week


Worked for me from 215 to 175 lbs . Try it and let me know your results
JUST SAY NO TO KALE

This is called portion control.

The practice of eating lesser amounts of mass, of food.

For instance;

A 215lbs man, who usually eats w 2500 grams of food everyday to maintain that 215 frame - would then cut that portion nearly half, say 1500 grams of mass.

The body is getting fuel and energy via consumption; but does not create the excess and store it conservatively, as weight.

In other words stop over feeding your consuming self and be reasonable with the amount of mass you consume.

Congrats on losing 20+lbs


You deserve a cake


ETA : I have to comment against your last comment "NO KALE".
You shouldn't be advising people to not consume what is naturally RICH AND DENSE in nutrition and aiding HEALTH. Kale is king of green for a reason, and has as much iron and protein as a steak given like-amount-of-mass.

Eat kale, it's VERY good for you.

Diet doesn't make you a man..... Unless you killed it with your bare hands.

It's much more than portion control to me. It's more about keeping you in a frame of mind with portion control and keeping with it 5 out of 7 days a week.

kale is ok but it's not bacon. Sure you could exercise eat kale,do a cleanse, count calories to accelerate results but this is a "Mans Diet" eat what you want cheat when you want and beef jerky is awesome

I don't really want to Dieyet.

That doesn't seem like a diet to me, that sounds like what I used to eat like when I was working construction.

If you eat foods that are organic fruits and veggies you don't really need portion control. You will need to eat six meals a day just to make up for the calorie loss from a diet rich in processed foods. Its not about portions when you eat healthy foods. You will naturally regain portion control. Toxic foods will cause a mismanagement of portion control

In observing the french paradox I figure this is the key.
Because they eat everything we think is bad (butter, cream, bread, wine, fatty meats....) and yet they stay slim.
It all lies in the philosophy that "less is more" or "small is beautiful" (as they say).
That one should never eat until they are full- that is a fail. Full is uncomfortable.

I've learned I really prefer eating a mouse-sized portion of something really "sinful" than a plateful of crap.

That's sound advice, but very difficult for some people. I prefer eating that way too, and I have no problem sticking to it all day long at work. I eat many times very small amounts of healthy food, then when I go home my wife wants to make something heavy that I find myself usually eating too much of. Or we go out to eat - even worse...

Wasn't so bad while I was still running every day, but I kind of blew out a knee and can't do that any more. Just started a new exercise program yesterday so I'll see if I can get it under control.

I get that - I'm currently at home unable to use my arms so I stopped working out and running, and since I can't cook we keep eating out.... the rate I'm gaining is scary. Sometimes life is just like that! I don't get too obsessed about weight though. I figure being too worried about it will make it worse.

Unable to use your arms? At all? Oh I am sorry, what is causing that? Will you get use back? Don't mean to be nosy, hope things improve.

I have epichondylitis (otherwise known as tennis elbow) in both elbows. Mostly because of my work, but I kept working for months with the pain in one, learning to do everything with my left hand, and it formed in that side too!
(I suspect it was also a bit too much of the elliptical trainer
)

So now I am unable to work, or do much else but sit here with my arms all set in place on pillows all day, my keypad strategically placed under my hand. I get so hungry by the end of the day, I usually will eat whatever is given to me.

I was really pleased with the results of the elliptical trainer though - exercise beats diets in every way!!

I often told my friends, when they asked why I worked out so much, that I do so because I love food and refuse to sacrifice it. I have to make a choice, and food wins.

Just use more energy than you consume, it really is that simple.
When I was in the corporate world sat at a desk, I ate less food to maintain my desired weight than I do now as a very physically active plasterer and general builder.
It was easy to gain weight when I was sat in chairs all day, but it is more difficult to maintain my weight as I burn so much energy each day now.

It's not a miracle, and none of the lines from folk of 'medical condition' impress me at all...there are no fat people in sustained famine conditions anywhere in the world. Consume more energy than you use and you get fat. Consume less energy than you use and you lose weight. Regardless of the trans fats and other horrors, you only get fat if you eat more than you use.
I eat a generally healthy diet of home prepared food for work, but I happily indulge in McDeath burgers if I've been working hard. I had 3 double cheeseburgers and a chicken burger as a 2pm snack today after eating my packed lunch as I had worked like a dog and I was tired needing an energy fix.
I am not fat because I do not live a sedentary lifestyle and consume more energy than I use.
It is an absolute fact that the overwhelming majority of fat people consume more energy than they burn.
It is a choice...and I look forward to the bleeding heart replies crying 'victim' for fat people.
Lame.

Oh, sweetheart, I am so sorry. I had tennis elbow in my right arm for a while but it has gotten better. I guess it wasn't that extreme to begin with, it was a nuisance and it hurt but it didn't debilitate me. Do you have any course of treatment? There must be something to alleviate it.

I used to use an elliptical trainer but I broke it from so much constant use. I just got a new machine that I won't name because I don't think it would be appropriate, but so far I think it's going to work really well. Really killer short intervals mixed with longer rest periods that make it easier to keep going. Anyway, I am hoping to get rid of this extra 25 pounds that the combination of not being able to work out and holiday feasting has left me with.

Getting anti inflammatory shots in each elbow each week, and wearing these horrible bands that cut off my circulation and make my fingers turn purple..... but it is getting better.

Today, I tried to eat little meals. But I just ended up eating twice as many little meals.
Boredom is terrible for ones figure...

I feel you to a degree. Me left shoulder and left arm are relatively useless due to three dislocations, one surgery which corrected the acromion, clavicle, rotator cuff and reattachment of left bicep. Unfortunately, now 6 years after a surgery that helped but did not perfect it, I am in constant pain and take Tramadol every night or I do not sleep. Frozen shoulder is setting in, nerve damage surrounding the shoulder blade and deltoid, and I just found out that I know have a pinched artery that needs correcting asap

I've done the prednisone and steroid injections.

One thing I will caution, from medical advice, is that too many steroid injections in the same joint can weaken and rupture a ligament or tendon of that joint.

But with all that in my shoulder and runner's knee and carpal tunnel in the right wrist...I get where you are coming from.

Take care :-)

As far as OP goes...portion control is indeed wonderful and consumption vs exertion is important. But for some people, the so-called Man's Diet can further tissue inflation. Things like soda, meats, snacks, etc can raise inflammatory levels in joints and throughout the body overall. Make no mistake, I love meat, but Kale and other greens are great too and can make a person very healthy

good luck and WOW on 20+

Yep, I know what you mean. I do a really good job at work because I'm busy, sometimes I even forget to eat. Then I get home and ruin it. I hope you get full recovery and quickly too!

I don't really recommend it as it comes with much more health losses...
