Re: Put down the pie

"I lost 35kg over ~3 years by just that"

Are you saying you didn't change your diet at all? You ate the same but increased the amount of exercise you did? Of course, this is possible, but it's a stupid way to lose weight.

Tim: these data are based on what people are buying, not what people are eating. If you take an average of what some fat people eat and what some thin people eat then they might appear to be eating normally. But if you look at what the individual eats it's a different story. Every fat person is eating too much. When an obese person eats over 3000-4000 kcal per day, it wouldn't matter if they had a 1950s lifestyle, they'd still be obese.
