Thanks. Yes, it's good to be back. It seems that I wasn't ready last time. I'm definitely feeling more level about the whole experience this time. It is nice to feel that it will just happen.
One of the things I found really helpful about It's Different for Men was the no-nonsense style. So many weightloss books are targeted at women, and they don't really resonate for me. They seem soft, or too science-y, or too like a gimmick.
This is basically saying - face it - you need to eat less and more healthy.
There are lots of basic things, like trying a new food every week, that is necessary for us to let go of our fixation on steak-frites or whatever our favourite meal is.
I've been trying, for example, to get to his recommendation of having red meat no more that once a week. It is challenging, but it is encouraging me to have other things, and it feels good. I never order fish because I think it won't fill me. Since I've been trying that more, it really has been quite good. And loosens up my habits.
Anyway, I hope everyone is doing well. Cheers.
