Everyone just needs to move off grid, and spend all year chopping firewood.  Lol. Its a great workout.  I haven't  been this fit since the military over 10 years ago. I can eat whatever i want, and with me being as busy as i am working on some sort of project. I am non stop, slow, but always moving.

A number of years ago, I lost 50+ (25kg) pounds in about four months.  I didn't diet exactly, I just watched what I ate, didn't heap my plate, didn't get seconds, cut out snacks except at scheduled times, snacked on dried fruit and nuts instead of something with refined flour and sugar.  I also increased the amount of I walked.  I cut way back on alcohol, and tried to cut my sugar intake to as low as possible.  I also started eating soups for lunch, they left me feeling fuller for longer. My idea of a soup is probably a stew to most people. 

When I first started and would get hungry enough to eat paint chips, I would snack on the fruit or nuts and wash it down with either coffee, tea or water.  (No cream or sugar.) But with a liquid, so I felt fuller, longer.

I also quit smoking at the same time.

You won't lose weight or quit smoking or drinking or drugs until you decide to straighten up your life.  And once you do, the battle will continue for the rest of your life.  Which generally lasts longer than if you don't.  My graduating High School class had 18 people in it, at least three are dead from health related issues.

This would absolutely work.

Agreed I bet that’s a diet we can all get behind VetRyan

The Belushi diet has the added step of snorting lines off a hookers backside.  Smiley

I just wished i didnt have to work a job of 30 to 40 hours a week. That would give me more time to do more projects, but i unfortunately  need some income. But i just buy whatever meats on sale, my gf  cans it in the pressure cooker, and now she is experimenting making meals and canning that.

Do you see a day when you are completely self sufficient and won't need that outside job?

  I just got done rewatching Season 6 of Alone.  That's the show where they drop off ten people alone with ten survival items in a remote location and the one who can last the longest gets half a million dollars.  This episode was in the Canadian Arctic.  After sixty or seventy days the last few contestants have lost a third or more of their original weight. 
     My fantasy is having to eat that much weight back on.  My God, would that be heaven or what?  Until I was twenty one I ate like ten men and stayed as skinny as a toothpick.  Then my metabolism changed and I've been fighting the Battle of the Bulge ever since.  To be able to eat like a pig again and not worry about it would be wonderful.
