    No food is "bad". It is about being able to sustain the change and taking baby steps to achieve a lifetime of health. Not everyone can eat clean and stay with it from day one.

    You're venting about how other people choose to eat?

    You must lead a very pampered life.

    Well there is your problem, you can not "loose" weight.

    Most people eat a deficit and exercise, that is all you have to do pretty much. The other day I went for a run and was able to fit sugar cookies and crunch n munch in my day AND still have 500 calories left over.

    LOOSE is pronounced like GOOSE, and it will describe the fit of your clothes when you LOSE weight.

    I loose quite a bit of weight when I unfasten my belt.

    Whats wrong with gravy?

    Most of us are looking at long term goals and a little bit of kfc wont kill us ( well it would me but that down to allergies). Most if realise that there is NO bad food just some that are better kept as the occasional treat

    Dread to think what you think of my diary as I have sweets and treats daily.

    You haven't played on the success forums much have you? A lot of those people eat McDonald's, KFC, Taco Bell, Kraft Mac and Cheese, etc.. and have lost 20/30/50/100 lbs. How? Because it is all about calories in and calories out. Some one can eat Taco Bell every day and still lose weight.

    So what are you really pissed off about? The fact that these people have learned to encorporate everyday life into their diets? You should give it a try some times...sounds like.

    Everybody is different, I love that some of my friends lose weight well on fast food and Cheetos and ice cream and vodka (don't pretend you don't love some of those things sometimes!). I think that is the coolest thing about having many friends with open diaries, I can see how different approaches work for everybody! Lots of people feel great eating that way. The people that don't often have interesting ways of getting in their calories with lots of fruit and vegetables. In the end its about calorie deficit or lack there of that determines whether you lose weight. If you feel you are eating healthy and feel great then awesome, but don't expect to drop pounds if you are eating at maintenance or above...

    I have friends in both sides of the spectrum, some eat fast food a few times a week, some are completely vegan. You know what works? Eating what you like and can maintain forever, and keeping it at a deficit until you hit your personal weight/body goal.

  • I think that as you get older your body wants to hold onto that weight, it used to be so easy for me to lose a few pounds. Now I really have to work at it, not only losing it but keeping it off. I know that eating clean and healthy is so wonderful for your body and I try to stick to it, (unfortunately I still like all those bad foods so I have to be careful!) I believe in the long run you will be better for it, so stick to your clean eating, your body will thank you. Just remember, if we stick with it we will make our goal one day, have a good day.

    Hmmm...pretty sure calories in vs calories out equals weight loss...not KFC in vs. rabbit food in...I have KFC on occaision, I just make better choices like the grilled chicken instead of the fried. However, I have a weakness for shortbread cookies and will spend an hour on the eliptical just so I can eat the whole package if I want. Yes, I agree, health is about more than losing (not loosing) weight, but it is also a marathon, not a sprint, and if someone wants to survive on spoonfuls of Crisco, but they are still taking it off, eventually they will get to a point where they need more nutrients than what said Crisco is providing and will open themselves up to new foods...not really your place to decide what is right for anyone but you...unless you have kids..then I make them eat their veggies...:smile:
