I try to follow the 80/20 principal. If I eat right 80% of the time, exercise properly 80% of the time, I can allow myself a little relaxation of the rules. I still need to lose some weight, but not as much as if I didn't follow my rule. Also, I don't need to feel guilty if I slip a bit.

I thank you for your input. They have already told me no matter what they eat it doesn't 'show' and so they eat what they want. Is this the purpose of exercise? I am confused.
I would say it depends on the person, their metabolism/activity level. Sure fatty food is not good, but some people need fat in their diets too. I stick with what works for me, and I exercise.

Thats better than saying you eat like a bird, Most people don't know birds eat twice they're weight in food a day . I may look like I do, and I can tell you what not to eat. I need more exercise. I wish we had a pool to swim in, that would do it for me . There are alot of reasons why people like me are fat. Health reasons, growth hormones they give animals which transfer to us in the meat we eat, things they put in our food to make it taste better and make it cheaper for themselves, what time we eat, eating to much, eating the wrong things, not enough exercise. These are the most common, one or more of these combined. No one in they're right mind would be like this if it was that easy. But everyone needs someone to stand behind them and help them beat the problem, and not be THE PROBLEM.
I have a plan, I quit smoking first which I have , Now it is time to get the Gorilla of my back and chimp out of my tummy.
I had done this before my friend passed away, and gave up for awhile. Now I am back, I will be looking good again. First Drink 32 ounces of water a half hour before eating, add a side salad if you like, remember very little dressing please, Stay away from fatty meat as much as possible, eat little bits 6 to 8 times a day rather than 3 times until you pop. (This is why I hate Buffets or all you can eats.)
no food at least 4 hours before bed time, Find a hobby (metal detecting helped me lose 150 pounds in four monthes). Some people can exercise because they like to, I have to trick myself by doing something fun. I like to golf too, guess I can't rent a cart this summer . be supportive to your (FAT) buddy negative comments are hurtful and just make Us eat more. (besides have you ever had a cow on you ?) Do this and you will have .
I am not a doctor you should always talk to a doctor about this. But it is my plan over the long haul and it doesn't cost you the price of a book.:) Please let me know how you are doing. OK have a nice day!

same here elf. i know what i should eat but i'm a very picky eater. veggies make me gag. i know i should exercise more but i'm lazy. i know that should be no excuse but it's the only one i have.
and personally i don't think people should judge other people for what they eat. my 2 cents.

i don't see the harm in McD's sometimes, but nomatter how fit
you are, you are not immune from clogged arteries and heart disease, etc. so i think you still have to eat well.
i can eat anything i want and stay very skinny, but i don't eat a lot of fat. it's unhealthy and seems to sit in the stomach, to boot. i love donuts and steak, cheese and whole milk, but only have 1 donut or a few slices of cheese. moderation is all.
exercise- well, i'm not allowed to exercise, lol. that's how skinny i am. but i used to exercise alot, jogging and sit-ups and push-ups. till the doc banned me from exercise, unless it's range of motion stuff.
