    When I am hungry... I know I'm hungry and not just thirsty... Like right now... and I check my watch... guess what? It's lunch time!

    Zergling: Well that will be true if the body stores enough food to last you for just one day. That's not true though... Your liver has enough glycogen to keep you going for at least 5 days... So in essence, blood glucose fluctuation per day isn't that much and there's really no need to alter your metabolism to conserve energy.

    It's like the hunger pang that goes away 2 hours past your scheduled meal time. Suddenly you're not hungry anymore... You didn't eat, yet you still keep up with your normal activity without any problems. Homeostasis. Good stuff!

    Your body does accounting... checks and balances... it even has reserves set up for dare times... Too bad my body can't do my banking for me. *shakes head*

    If you don't mind me asking, do you work in/around this field? I read some of your previous posts and you sound like you have researched this before. Thanks for the info.

    The Simplest Way Ever to Keep the Pounds Off

    1. Limit processed foods
    2. Spend 20 minutes a day in focused (but not necessarily strenuous) exercise

    Seriously, that's it. I've kept the pounds off for decades that way.

    Hmm I don't really see why you want to hit the lowest healthy bmi, what is exactly grocing you out because you are light (at least if we are talking in pounds here)

    Well and if you want to lose weight do this:
    1. Strength training (more muscles will make you burn more each day)
    2. 2-3x per week cardio (steady hartrate, or running without breakfast in the morning)
    3. Calculate your maintenance level of caloric intake and go 300-500 kcal under there. And stick to healthy food and complex carbs, use a lot of protein.
    Healthy: Rice, cottage cheese, low fat yoghut, low fat milk, dark brown bread, chicken filet, lean beef etc.

    Good luck, I don't want to help anyone with anorexia so first start thinking about ur self image...

    You don't need to be that ideal BMI number to be fit though, necessarily. You can be bulky and still run a hundred miles if you're in shape cardio wise. What I'm trying to say is, don't let that number determine your goals for yourself. If you think you need to be real slender in order to be healthy because that's what the "numbers" suggest, I'd say you're wrong. I'm on the upper end of my healthy BMI but I much prefer it to being on the lower end.

    I've been fitness obsessed. It's not fun. I used to run 40 miles a week (And I mean run!), when all I needed was a quick pump for a serotonin fill.

    Find the little tricks. Don't be afraid of eating healthy; you get used to it, it just becomes a different framework for good and bad (I love hazelnuts, dislike sprouts).

    This looks quite good.
