At the beginning of the year, I was really, really fucking fat.  Now, I'm less fat.  If you wanted to see how much less fat I am (around 70lbs less fat, since you ask), you could, if you wanted, go here, and scroll down to finalist #8.

Oh, hey, while you were there, you could even vote for me (once per device, by the look of things).  I hereby faithfully promise that, should I win anything, I'll spend every last cent on booze and encased meat products.

I voted for you.

Care to share the specifics of your diet?

He swallowed a lot of aggression. Along with a lot of pizzas.

You got my vote, although I think that the beard trim and haircut accounted for at least ten of those pounds.
If I had known that I was going to live this long I would have taken better care of myself.   (Plagerized from numerous other folks)

Thank you.  It wasn't a diet, per se.  They actually just teach you some fundamentally pretty simple stuff: eat slowly, stop before you're full, eat a balanced diet with a fair amount of good fat, and plenty of lean protein and vegetables.  There's a lot of exercise, though - running, squats, lunges, bodyweight and dumb-bell stuff.  I didn't manage it every week but most weeks I exercised four or five times.  Indeed, the way they've cropped the photos pisses me off a bit, because my legs have changed even more than my upper body, but you can't see it.
Your toilet's broken, Dave, but I fixed it.

Yet another election rigged. Sad!
You two wanna go stick your wangs in a hornet's nest, it's a free country.  But how come I always gotta get sloppy seconds, huh?

Interesting -- sounds a bit similar to what I've been doing, but perhaps not as extreme, which is probably more sensible. I cut out all carbs, sodium, sugar, saturated fats, and dairy, and focus on label reading. In the next couple of months I'm going to transition to a maintenance phase, where I'll start eating limited carbohydrates again. The big thing for me has also been the fitness side, although I'm just doing running (typically 5K a day).

I have something like 4 electronic devices at my disposal, not to mention various internet browsers. You get 10 votes from me, sir. Good luck!

Ha!  Ten votes!  Fantastic: that's more than I've managed myself.

I still find this hard to believe, but I really, really enjoy running.  I did best part of 9k the other day and it felt fantastic.  I've even more or less worn out a pair of running shoes.  Worn out!  Normally, they just perish.

Did I mention, by the way, that the guys who run the program I did are based in Toronto?  Their offices are in Alexandra Park.

I saw that! I didn't know about them. I am seeing a nutritionist here... I wish I could be losing weight for the chance to rake in some cash, but just getting healthy is reward enough. I'll be aiming for 10K in the spring, btw. By then, you'll probably be running half marathons...

1. Saturated fats are fucking delicious.
2. Cut out *all* carbs?  No fruits or vegetables in your diet?

2. Cut out *all* carbs?  No fruits or vegetables in your diet?

On a daily basis, I can have a cup of berries, or an orange, and I am primarily supposed to have green, leafy vegetables, although I am permitted 4 cups a day of broccoli or cauliflower (which is what I commonly eat with my chicken burger in a lettuce wrap at dinner time).

But I do have a cheat meal every two weeks, commonly, although I will be eating two in three days at around Christmas time (my wife is cooking some homemade Bailey's Cheesecake for Christmas Eve, and I'll be going out for wings with my best friend on the 26th).

I voted for you.

Care to share the specifics of your diet?

Thank you.  It wasn't a diet, per se.  They actually just teach you some fundamentally pretty simple stuff: eat slowly, stop before you're full, eat a balanced diet with a fair amount of good fat, and plenty of lean protein and vegetables.  There's a lot of exercise, though - running, squats, lunges, bodyweight and dumb-bell stuff.  I didn't manage it every week but most weeks I exercised four or five times.  Indeed, the way they've cropped the photos pisses me off a bit, because my legs have changed even more than my upper body, but you can't see it.

Interesting -- sounds a bit similar to what I've been doing, but perhaps not as extreme, which is probably more sensible. I cut out all carbs, sodium, sugar, saturated fats, and dairy, and focus on label reading. In the next couple of months I'm going to transition to a maintenance phase, where I'll start eating limited carbohydrates again. The big thing for me has also been the fitness side, although I'm just doing running (typically 5K a day).

I have something like 4 electronic devices at my disposal, not to mention various internet browsers. You get 10 votes from me, sir. Good luck!

1. Saturated fats are fucking delicious.
2. Cut out *all* carbs?  No fruits or vegetables in your diet?

On a daily basis, I can have a cup of berries, or an orange, and I am primarily supposed to have green, leafy vegetables, although I am permitted 4 cups a day of broccoli or cauliflower (which is what I commonly eat with my chicken burger in a lettuce wrap at dinner time).

But I do have a cheat meal every two weeks, commonly, although I will be eating two in three days at around Christmas time (my wife is cooking some homemade Bailey's Cheesecake for Christmas Eve, and I'll be going out for wings with my best friend on the 26th).
Last week I was diagnosed with gout.  No biggie.  I just have to avoid red meat, shellfish, tuna , trout, alcohol, coffee, organ meats, fried food, fructose, dried fruits, and vegetables like spinach, cauliflower, asparagus, mushrooms, peas, beans and lentils. 


Or, you could just take a load of gout medicine and eat and drink what the hell you like.

Gout flare ups and they're the worst.

Gout medicine sucks.  The shit makes you puke.

Stew...try cherries.  Cherries have some chemical in them that breaks up whatever crystals in the blood that cause the uric acid to build up in the joints.

Doesn't even matter which cherries or in what format (although the tarter ones seem to get the better write-ups).  They have cherry concentrates that are supposed to be awesome.  I just buy a giant bag of frozen cherries...lasts me about a week or so.

Cherry juice with no added sugar is also great but it can get expensive.  In the summer (when they're available and cheaper) I eat cherries like they're going out of style.

I stay away from organ meats (I do eat liver once in a while...Russian Jewish dinner and all) and I avoid asparagus.

Exercise seems to help a lot too.
