Sounds like you are eventually going to disappear.

That was my weight class wrestling in High School. I got back down to it for a few years in my late 20's - early 30's. These days I still have the body of a Wrestler, a Sumo Wrestler.

Tim,

Shockingly to us, it hasn't been too hard to lose weight on the road. There's a sense of peace traveling that makes not eating easier for both of us. In general it seems to carry over when we're home. We do eat more at home but manage to hold our own. The breakfast meal is a constant. For visitors we do cook, but steel avoid wheat products though we serve them to guests.

I still have my copy of their first book. I actually planned (and did) a trip going from one to the next of their suggestions. Had a great time & probably gained 10 lbs!

Jon,
We used to carry a small library of RV books in the motorhome and Road Food was one. We have gone to a lot of them across the country.

I signed up for their app today and will be going to more. Yummy.

You can get Road Food as an epub for e-readers too I believe. I still prefer to carry the book though

Calories in, calories out. It's all about balance.

Once past the taste buds... your stomach doesn't care. It could be sawdust with ketchup!

Slow down, enjoy every spoonful/forkful!

I will also say that fats are important in a diet, though like any thing to excess is dangerous.

Since we began RVing we are diet conscious and have lost over 100 lbs between us. Giving up bread and other wheat products caused us to quickly lose 10 pounds (except when in NL where there bread is so good it's hard to ignore.)

I will say that was the best onion rings we've ever had, a really sweet coating and closer to a donut with a slice of onion.

We basically avoided supper yesterday.
Norm, A excellent book on the subject of carbs and fats in your diet is
Grain Brain by David Perimutter M.D.
I seen him on Public T.V. and got a copy of his book at the local library. It will open your eyes on the health problems that wheat and gluten are causing and most people don't even know that's the cause. But, why is wheat products and bread, oh so good, just not fair.

Stan, We read a similar book titled the Wheat Belly. It gave us pause and we have dramatically cut our wheat intake.
