haha, nice memory. She tells me she is on a diet now, so I guess I'm outweighing her again.

Basically, you would eat nothing but a 500-800 cals a day, depending on your current weight and current BF%. All the cals would be from protein. You can eat as many veggies as you want, as long as they are not starchy ones and not eaten with dips/sauces with carbs/fat. You supplement with fish oil and take a good multivitamin to make sure you don't go deficient in anything. You do moderate exercise because you're too short on cals to do anything too intense.
Everyone I know that's ever claimed they were gonna do the "diet" you just proposed has failed. Based on your OP, all it sounds like you're going to do is cut back from a major surplus of cals to maintenance cals at best. I don't think you'll burn enough cals from working out and unless you seriously modify your diet (much more than you've stated you will), you're not going to see much for results imo.
how many Ls in overkill?

Of course, unless he changes his habits, he'll put the weight right back on not long after he stops.
heeey, what does that mean?
As for what kind of workout I do every day...see my second post in this thread...I'm thinking I'll do that 3 times a week, box twice, yoga once and swim on Sunday. Not bad, right? I also have a decent track record when it comes to kicking my own ass - this will be the third time it has been done times in the past nine years - once nine years ago (I got up to 83, heaviest I've ever been, took up kickboxing and was fighting competitively at 69 within a year), once about four years ago (got to 81, took up boxing, and have been in the 73-76 range basically ever since)...and now.
As for general lifestyle, I generally eat sorta OK and get enough exercise - notably through boxing as Metrostyles pointed out - however it is more a case of me going completely fucking overboard over the past couple of months between a particularly busy work period which included a lot of travel, and then capped off by the festive season and my own well document proclivity for festivity.
So now I think I need to go completely fucking underboard, and then resume my standard maintenance regime...kick my own ass for a third time.
So, ya, I am doing a 'crash' time, but I generally am at maintenance calories input/output as a general rule....and given that I have only really gotten out of hand 3 times in basically a decade, I am pretty good with maintaining when I get back to where I should be, and also really good at nipping it in the bud when it creeps back.
