How to Lose Weight and Watch What You Eat

You’ve read my weight loss tips. It’s been a couple of years since I wrote that, and (for the most part) I’ve been able to maintain that weight. I’ve had minor weight fluctuations since then, but in recent months had noticed a slightly fatter face (and the less couth watching my live stream were quick to point it out to me). I was past my 10 pound threshold, and decided to stop drinking coffee again – a habit that has been nearly impossible to kick, but I hope I’m really past it this time.

Lucky for me, my license for CalorieKing’s software still applied – even on Mac OS X. I fired ‘er up and started keeping track. It’s been a little over a month since I re-started, and I’m incredibly close to my goal weight. It’s been quite simple, thanks to the math and prior knowledge. All you really need to know is how many calories it takes to “live” and lose weight – the rest is just putting that into practice. That’s the hard part. 🙂

The results do speak for themselves (at least, they do to me). I figured it’d take longer to get to this point, but I’m certainly in the home stretch. I won’t likely return to a regular regimen until some point in early 2009, but I’m not sure I’m going to keep using this software while I’m stable (not losing weight, not gaining weight). Maybe that’ll keep me from doing too much or too little over the course of any given day?

Losing weight isn’t always fun, and I’ve never been much on exercise (that’s why I always take the low-impact approach). There is no perfect lifestyle, just a close-to-perfect lifestyle for you. Everybody is different, internally and externally – you have to find your own perfection and your own path. Just… try to find it before it’s too late?

No matter, here’s a demonstration of what I use to help me lose weight and watch what I eat:

It’s the best one out there, for either platform. And if you still haven’t read my weight loss tips yet, there’s no time like the present to do it.

  1. Chris,

    Losing weight CAN be fun! I lost nearly 100 pounds while eating as much as I wanted of the must delicious food I ever tasted! I didn’t even have to exercise (although exercise is important for overall health, it wasn’t necessary for me to lose nearly 100 pounds).

    How did I lose the 100 pounds?! By eating gourmet foods that weren’t heated above 115 degrees. Sounds strange to most people, but it literally saved my life. Eating that way is saving people all over the planet. I’m going to be traveling the states teaching people all about it very soon. This shouldn’t be kept a SECRET! Everyone should know how easy it is to lose weight and regain health.

    I have a web site up teaching people about this way of eating (all free info), if you want to check it out: and I have a YouTube video up showing my transition from obese and unhealthy to slim and vibrant! My name on YouTube is PureJeevan if you want to check it out.

    Weight loss IS possible and can be SIMPLE! It’s just hard to believe it can be this simple!

    Giving up the coffee is a huge step to better health! Did you suffer through headaches from the withdrawal?

    Lots of love to you,

    Wendi Dee

  2. Hi weight loss journey starts today.i have a big problem with french fries what substitute wld u suggest .sella

  3. Hi Chris – could do with some of your wisdom and think I have a novel way to get it out of you.
    I am a humble personal trainer with a hunger for technology (but not really a brain for it) and with 5 other personal trainers have started a company that focuses on webcam to webcam personal training.
    Would you be willing to exchange some of your business genius in exchange for some webcam to webcam personal training? We designed it to help busy people who dont have time to make it to the gym but also those who dont necessarily want to do the same workout every time or have someone making them feel like crap – we are all happy folk – believe it or not 🙂

    What sayest thou, Master Pirillo?

  4. No matter how much you want to lose weight, try not to dip below 1,800 calories a day, particularly if you are breastfeeding. The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s MyPyramid site can help you design a personalized eating plan based on your age, activity level, and weight loss goals. T
