    Burgers aren't that bad at all if you skip on the bun and limit the condiments. I can never seem to do that, though, so I just limited myself.
    I only eat half (or less) of the bun (for some reason I hate sandwich buns, and try to eat it but end up only eating the insides), hate condiments, too. The only thing I like on burgers is onions.

    If you don't like the buns, then just toss them aside. They offer no nutritional value.

    Burgers and onions are good - I like that combo too. Fresh salsa also goes well on just a burger patty, in my opinion.

    It really depends on the salsa.

    Okay, guys, so I'm back on track.

    I haven't been anal-retentive about keeping track like I used to because I find that annoying.

    So here's the deal:

    Diet

    I don't count calories. That's pointless. However I do have ten steps to keep in mind:

    1. Drink at least 2 L of water a day, plus 0.5 L for every cup of coffee consumed.
    2. Other than minimal amounts of coffee/tea, herbal tea, milk, and water, eliminate all other drinks. They are unnecessary.
    3. Eat no more than 1-2 servings of bread/carbohydrate a day.
    4. Eat at least 1-2 servings of protein a day (preferably more).
    5. Eat lots and lots of raw fruits and veggies, nuts, and seeds.
    6. Cut out HFCS, artificial sweeteners, and preservatives completely from your diet, if possible. (That includes most processed food).
    7. Avoid eating large amounts of sodium.
    8. Eat significant amounts of foods with vitamins, minerals, fat and fiber.
    9. Limit consumption of high-sugar foods to one treat per week.
    10. Have one meal a week that is a fun meal.

    It has done wonders for me.

    Plus at least 30-60 minutes of exercise a day. (Meaning: sweating, heart pumping exercise in addition to my regular walking and stuff). That includes:

    - Wii (Fit, Sports, Yoga, Muscle Exercises, and other neat stuff)
    - Billy Blanks DVDs (I watch on YouTube).
    - Spinning bike
    - Dancing and other random stuff

    I alternate so that my body gets a different workout all the time.

    So far, I have lost about 8 cm off my waist and hips, and I have lost 5-6 kilos. (That's about 12-15 pounds). Works for me.

    They say you shouldn't drink your calories, but if I only ate mine, I'd be getting 1,000 or less a day. I'm one of those freaks who prefer drinking to eating, who has two or three beverages with each meal. I think if not for an intense fear of blood I would have made an awfully good vampire.

    Sure you can drink your calories. I drink a helluva lot of milk.

    I finally broke the 280 mark. I'm about to go down a new belt buckle size, and will probably need to buy new pants in the next few weeks.

    I'm still struggling with finding my reason to eat healthy, but my mind is still processing the question and I'm making progress.

    Excellent update! I'm glad to see that you dropped the anal-retentiveness a bit. Logging foods and counting calories can be good for a couple of weeks, but after that it's usually unnecessary.

    On a normal day I have about 1400-1600 calories, with drinks. That's not a particular lot.

    Not really, but if your energy levels are decent and you feel good, then perhaps it's an appropriate amount for you.

    If not for the intense stress of weight loss, I would be pretty frickin' dandy, but you know, that's not always the case.

    You speak of your reason to be healthy as if it's a given that you must be, you just need a reason why. The assumption is that the reason would be to live longer, to live healthier, but you could make yourself suffer only to be hit by a bus and die tomorrow.
