Default Poll on weight Bob's weight loss with new diet

Since Bob said his diet has to change to a bland and almost no meat diet, I'm figuring he is going to drop some weight. Place your bets here...

Bear in mind that I am 5'11" and about 190# to start with, so I'm not overweight, but then again I'm not skinny. I think that if this diet does not kill me from eating food that just plain old sucks, then I will probably end up somewhere in the range of 175# to 180#. But of course, that all depends on how long I have to stay on it, the better I control my diet & meds, the shorter I am on such a rigid diet . . .

I didn't say you were fat. I was only implying that you will lose weight from the diet you described. I know I would.

Did you place the vote for blowing off the diet and not losing any weight?

Actually I voted that I would lose 10# or more.

I'm just happy that I can still drink coffee on this diet!

If anyone gets between me an my coffee pot they are standing in a very dangerous place. Since I drink my coffee black, I don't have to worry about the fact that cream and sugar are restricted on my diet. Now I'll admit that I can't drink unlimited amounts of coffee, but at least I can still have my morning cup . . . or 2 or 3 or 4 :rollinglabut I do switch to decaff after lunch.

Damn! It looks like the voting is currently neck and neck on Bob losing weight and Bob going off of his prescribed diet.

Thanks for letting us have a little fun at your expense Bob.

Oh, as I understand it, Bob's diet isn't intended for him to lose weight. I'm just assuming the weight loss will be a side effect of a bland diet.

Yup its a blood chemistry thing. Essentially trying to balance my systems and get my meds back in line. So the total duration of the diet is expected to be roughly 8 weeks (give or take a bit). After the ridgid diet period I then enter a phase when my normal foods are added back in stages to see what it is that is causing grief, or what combination of things. But I will say that I started out a 192 last Sunday and am 188 today. 4 pounds in 6 days. I may end up losing closer to 20 pounds . . . at which point I will have to buy all new Hawaiian shirts that are "trim fit" if they make such a thing

Hey! You can settle an arguement for me. My wife and son (who NEVER tucks in his shirt) tell me that the proper way to wear a Hawaiian silk shirt is untucked. Although I consider the shirts as "casual", I think the untucked shirt is too casual for me when I wear them while working. If I'm having a pool party etc., I'll leave them untucked. So, Mr. Hawaiian silk shirt expert, which is it?

Ok but we are WAAAAY off topic here. . . for work I tuck them in. For around the house, a party, etc, I leave them untucked.

However, if I have them tucked in during the day I do not un-tuck them when I get home simply becuase they often made of silk or linen and show wrinkles when untucked.

I voted over 10, as I think he'll loose about 25 pounds. Depending on the length of time he has to stay on it. Good Luck Bob:o

Bob,

Sorry to hear about your diet. If salt and meat were removed from my diet, I'd probably starve to death.

I'm thinking you're going to loose more than 10#.

Good luck Bob on the diet. I am glad to hear you drink your coffee properly, black, no sugar. I also drink my tea the same way, but I suppose you American people don't drink tea! Whisky has to be drunk the same way, no additions, not even an ice cube as it waters it down.

Anita, I'll say that we are in agreement on 3 drinks.
  • Coffee, black, no sugar.
  • Tea, black, green, oolong or darjeeling, no sugar. (and what the heck is herbal tea?)
  • Wiskey, no sugar in that either!!! But I like it with ice.

Try some Jasmine pearl tea...the leaves are rolled into little balls, or "pearls". I get it from a store in the Mall of America whenever I am up Murph's way in Minneapolis.

I'd suppose he is right. I had one of those fancy schmancy tests done and I now am up to 14% body fat. :o It's been several years since I've had another true body fat test, but then I tested at 9%. That was way back in college then and they used a lot of calculations and weighed you under water during part of the test.

How much of a percentage of the human body do you think your average head weighs? About 14%? :o
