    Q - I think seasonal obesity should occur in late Summer and be gone by end of Winter. That seems to be the natural way of things. Wild animals eat all they can all summer and lay on a fresh layer of fat for the lean times ahead--why should we expect to do the opposite?

    I'm working on a plan for gut health. It involves about 30-50g/day of fermentable fiber and resistant starch. I've been working my way up to this fiber load for the last 6 months and am getting ready to have my gut flora checked by the American Gut Project people. My suspicion is that I will have predominately bifidobacteria present. Foods that used to give me terrible gas now have zero effect. My FBG has dropped from 130 to 90 or less.

    Ok....not sure I understand how that is related to what I said. Im sure you knew exactly what you were eating but I was talking about others and how its hard to know what other people are eating unless you are with them 24/7.

    Is there any particular reason that you were eating only 250 - 330 calories per day?
    The above should be viewed as complete and utter nonsense.

    did it for most of my adult life. I started attempting to manage my weight at 10 with exercise. by the time i was 18 i gave that up and started fasting. by 34 fasting had gotten me all the way up to 475 pounds.

    when 35 i gave up utterly and ate whatever i wanted when wanted and notice no change in the rate of increase.

    when i was 506 pounds some random dude gave me the HCG spiel.

    even though he took my girl he gave me my life, fair trade in the end

    ICD-9 = 783.7 It already is.
    As was obesity. This AMA business is just a side-show.
