    Not everyone here is trying to lose weight. I, for one, am not. I'm in maintenance. For those that are trying to lose weight, it's all about CICO.

    I agree. I've been eating pretty much the same for years, maintaining, and now eating at a tiny deficit to lose a few pounds mainly out of vanity.

    When I say I eat pizza (for example) that could mean anything from big slices of traditional pizza from a restaurant to thin crust all homemade with mainly vegetables and herbs on top and measured 1 oz. of cheese on the entire pizza.

    Like someone mentioned a couple months ago, they may eat relatively tiny portions of what is described here. Or the opposite...I mentioned someone didn't seem to eat much at all and they were talking about the huge portions they prefer, and have a lot of mini meals that are small or mostly things like tea and fruit. There are a lot of ways to eat!

    Also, the larger/taller and younger you are, the more you can generally eat (by that I don't mean some great mysterious metabolism thing but am referring to one's calorie goal).
