It is time for a new profile. As many of you know, I am a semi-retired engineer, a proud Scot, living just north of our capital, Edinburgh, in “the Kingdom” of Fife. I am married, with a son, a daughter, two step-daughters, two grandsons and two step-grandsons.
Since joining FS I have lost 74lbs, and hope to lose another 14lb, for a Renewal of Vows Ceremony in July. I started off by just eating my usual foods, but counting the calories and eating less than my RDI. This was successful, but I knew I was on a diet. After a recommendation from a lovely lady here, I read Gary Taubes book, “The Diet Delusion”, and this changed my way of thinking about diet. I have since read and researched a lot more and have now made a major change to my eating regime.
After reading Dr Jason Fung’s book, “The Obesity Code”, and watching a number of his lectures on YouTube, I am swung to the Insulin/Insulin Resistance theory. I am now eating enough calories to keep my weight the same, but have dropped added sugar from my diet (where I can), eating much more fibre, eating three meals a day with no snacking between meals, and taking an Apple Cider Vinegar tablets (one-a-day).
Along with the dietary change I have decided to try Intermittent Fasting. My plan is to fast every second day, but this may change with experience. I will also vary days if I need to eat for a planned event (like of “do” in July).
I started out weighing myself once a week, but then read an eBook, “The Hackers Diet” by John Walker and now weigh myself every morning (after my ablutions, and before dressing). I enter the data into Fitbit, but sync to TrendWeight.com, to remove the noise and calculate the trend, giving a far more accurate idea of how my weight is progressing.
Happy weight loss to you all.

Struggling to get into my jeans now. Read the riot act to Mrs T. No offering me snacks/treats/titbits. I haven't the willpower to refuse.
