Fish and veggies is what I love, and what helps me to keep my weight under control.  And than..... I binge on French Fries, and all that weight is back again, and I have to suffer for a few days as revenge to get it off again!  :embarrassed:

Have you tried fries made in an air fryer? Although the fries will still have its carbs, maybe it will have fewer calories as compared to fries cooked in oil.  You can also bake fries.

Always be kinder than needed.  Be tender to others.  You are as beautiful as the thoughts you think and the words that your speak.   Always stay cheerful, be polite, kind, and understanding.  Knowledge and action shown without love is not impressive.  If you look for the good in people you will find it. Healthy relationships are so important to good living.

Good living, joy, unity, love, and happiness can come from following these practices: Never let selfishness or conceit motivate you.  Regard others as more important than yourself.  Do not limit attention to only your interests, but include the interests of others

It is not usually about how fast you transition, it is about how well you transition.

Air frying is the best to remove oils.  i tried all methods.  I am a believer of air frying, but... I always make to many, and can't let them go to waste, can I?

Try to make fewer of them.  Only make more if you must have more.  Not having them handy to eat may make it easier to not eat them.

That is the problem, if I don't put enough into the basket, I am afraid I will die on starvation or Fries withdrawal

I see.  Food therapy is indicated for FFS (French fries starvation) and FFW (French fries withdrawal) syndromes.  :)

Enjoy your fries!  So.... do not get started then on Albanese brand chocolates and candy.

I am diabetic (diagnosed 25 years ago), I lost my taste for most sweet stuff.  But I never was that much into sweets.  But when you are intersex, you mostly don't get the good looks only, but also very bad eyes (I had lenses implanted into mine) and diabetes.

I do weights 5x per week. Unless you want more bulky muscle keep the weights low and the reps high. For example..I use a 5 lb. dumbbell and curl it 30 times. Aim to use weights that allow you to perform 20 to 30 reps. So when you get to 20+ you're really feeling the burn. This technique (for me) has resulted in a tone physic without any bulky muscle. I was also running 3 to 4 times per week in addition to the weights but had to take a break because of recent back surgery. So I started walking on a treadmill in the mornings. Let me tell you that I've really noticed significant weight loss..more than even running. Here's the key though. Choose the Manuel setting on the treadmill, enter your weight, and set the incline to the highest setting (15 on most machines) and walk at 3, 3.5, or 4 MPH. I'm up to 4mph. In 30 minutes I burn like 450 calories and have broken a good sweat. On days where I'm feeling really energetic I go for an hour and burn a whopping 900+ calories...and I'm pouring with sweat! So again I've lost more weight walking at an incline then I did when running. Try it! Good luck!

@ heather
I hope you are aware of the newest research that clearly indicates that physical activity is only a rather small part of effective weight loss?  Weight loss can be achieved only with an appropriate diet.  Physical activity keeps the muscles in tone, but does not much for losing weight.
Medical professionals recommend a healthy diet, such as any variation of the Mediterranean Diet, in combination with portion control/calorie counting, and moderate physical activity every day, as being the most efficient way to loose weight without jeopardizing ones health as this can be the case with fad diets like Keto!

          Hey Heather have you seen "The Game Changers" on Netflix? Arnold, among others, swears 'plant-based' proteins is the only way to go 'no more meat, eggs or milk' at all! *sigh* no milk too?? Great quote: when people say "you look fit & healthy as an Ox" then tell them "Ox's don't eat meat do they"?

Daughter & I need to start going to the "Y" again . . . just been undecided lol "how to dress"?

lol quote == Steak is for "A Man" Go MEAT!
(lol edit: now they're talking 'bout "plant based erections" lol )
"But it's no use now," thought poor Alice, "to pretend be two people!
"Why, there's hardly enough of me left to make one respectable person!"

@Linde. Absolutely diet is equally important. Forgive me for not including a mention of that in my earlier post. I was simply highlighting a particular exercise routine that has worked for me personally. Obviously exercise is only half of the component for weight loss and overall heatlth. My Monday thru Friday routine is pretty boring for breakfast and lunch. Every morning I eat a ruby red grapefruit with stevia sprinkled on two halves. (Studies are mixed on the affects of grapefruit and it's weight loss properties. If anything it is a powerful antioxidant with good vitamin C. that taste good.) I also eat a bowl of Special K protein cinnamon brown sugar crunch with about 10 blueberries (blueberries are another good antioxidant.) I use low fat milk with the cereal. Oh and two cups of coffee with stevia and a teaspoon only of creamer. For lunch I eat a Chick Fil A market salad with either light balsamic vinegrete or low fat honey mustard. (No ranch or blue cheese..as this would add significant calories!) For dinner a protein, a green vegetable and a small portion of a carb. Saturday is my free day. I eat wings, burgers, fries, and have a desert. (Everyone should have a free day each week to reward yourself for being so darn disciplined all week!) Anyway that's my routine which works "for me." YMMV! Oh and if you love ice cream like I do you may want to give a low calorie dairy free ice cream a try. I eat a brand called "Enlightened" which I think taste great. If you manage to eat the whole pint (like I sometimes do;) you can remain relatively guilt free knowing the calories will total less than 400. Compared to  a 1600 pint of Ben & J that's pretty darn good!

Your diet sounds pretty healthy for a normal person.  It would kill me, because i am diabetic.  Eating a diet suitable for diabetics, is probably the healthiest way to eat for anybody.
One has to be careful with grapefruit, because they render some medications to be ineffective.  Blueberries are probably the healthiest fruit one can eat, one should also not forget grapes, specifically the dark skinned ones.

This combined with a calore counting app works well.
