    In prison it's called Nutriloaf as I recall. Ok with ketchup.
    Start slow, then taper off.

    My wife lost way more than that, after two kids, by eating half. That was all she did. Might not work for everyone, but it worked wonders for her.

    That's good to know!

    Any day I can expect to wake up a skinny millionaire with a 12" unit and a full head of hair!

    I had started to think it was hopeless!

    Real advice, no, not familiar with the 4-hour body. When I was younger, 20s, on into the early 30s, nearly anything worked. Ditch the fries. A few extra miles. Late 30s and on through the 40s, not so much. Tried South Beyotch almost on a whim when I got frustrated with things around 8 years ago and it worked for me. Some early results in the first phase -- fairly onerous, but you don't feel like you're starving. After a couple of weeks or so you shift to phases that are more balanced and reasonable, which can help one keep going after an initial success.

    Some folks do well with weight watchers, although it's a long haul.

    But I think that there's nothing that works for everyone, and that many folks have early success with one or another program but then slide back, or back and forth. You know, your schedule is yours to manage, but maybe no your to control; likewise, the aging process is something you can manage but not control. In the long-ish run, you need something that can work in the long-ish run.

    I gained 20 lbs in two weeks once. That was hard work and took serious dedication.

    1. ride your bike 15 days in a row for a 140km. don't eat unless you are on the bike.

    2. develop a heroin habit.

    3. go to mexico, india or some other shit hole and drink the water- relax squatting above an open sewer for the next five days.

    4. don't eat fucking anything that isn't in this cook book: Amazon.com: Nourishing Traditions: The Cookbook that Challenges Politically Correct Nutrition and the Diet Dictocrats (9780967089737): Sally Fallon, Mary Enig: Books

    5. start smoking cigarettes and trade food for cheap domestic pilsner. this works best with a wade boggs style mustache.

    trust me- everyone of the above methods works. you just have to choose the one that is consumate with your values and life goals. number one will make you fast and hot but you'll have no friends, no job and you'll never be laid again. number two will get you as much action as you want, (although you won't want any), you'll look hot and have better taste in music and cinema than you otherwise would, but your skin'll suck, you'll have no money and one day you'll realize all your friends are either dead or in jail- you may realize this while dead or in jail. number three requires the least amount of effort, but plane tickets are expensive and there is the chance of contacting cholera while in close proximity to a jakarta kampoon. number four will make everyone around you think you are a fucking healthnut conspiracy theorist hippy wackjob- but you will have dinner guests whenever you want them, and number five is just like wade boggs. fucking awesome.

    What worked for me was very simple. I just recorded my weight every morning, wrote the number down on a piece of paper and kept that log on my dresser where I had to look at it everyday. It was enough to provide the motivation to follow through. We all know the 'right' way to eat, no secrets there. It's all about finding a way to motivate yourself to stick to it.

    Cop friend of mine somehow got to the point that he had rationalized using whipping cream in his coffee among other unhealthy habits.

    One night his wife snaps a photo of his ass as he's getting undressed and tapes it to the fridge so he'd see it in the morning.

    Healthy habits started that day and the weight came right off.
