Mr Bill; I've lost 30 lbs since my surgery of July 21. I'm getting close to where I should be. At 6' 2", I really should be closer to 190. Right now, I have plateaued at 200.
What I am doing is eating much better. I rarely eat sweets anymore except for the occasional chunk of dark chocolate. I eat 90% vegan here at home with only some hormone free chicken tossed in. Cereals, oatmeal, salads. no butter or cheeses, no red meats and very few eggs. When I'm on the road, I eat some version of a chicken or shrimp salad for lunch/dinner, and oatmeal for breakfast.
But my wife is a great cook, and has learned to make very flavorful dishes without the fattening stuff.
At any rate, I'm holding at 200 now, and trying to figure out how to drop another ten. I think I could do it without changing diet, but picking up the workout rate a little. I dunno, time will tell.
