great advice. and a great article.
I have been listening to Kunk and Noir's advice, and also keeping a food and exercise log. What I notice is that if you guess your calories, and just try to "eat lighter"...you will fail. Start a spreadsheet and write down everything you eat, and break it into carbs, fat, protein and total calories. Check out CalorieKing website. It takes longer, but it is the only way to KNOW, not HOPE, what you are really eating. Eating .25 g per bodyweight of carbs, or between 30 -50 g per day, will put you on the right track. No cheating. Make it an experiment. If you have psychological reasons for overeating, they will surface, which will give you an opportunity to deal with that as well. I found this very motivating. http://www.t-nation.com/free_online_..._beast_evolves
