  1. hey I feel your pain as between my sons good homecooked meals, inactivety, and the poor quality of food here in America, I could sure stand to lose at least 75 pounds. My son and I have read of the health hazards to eating foods which are GMO(genetically modified) and here in america that is a really big problem with most of the food in our food supply. wheat and corn are two of the biggest ones and they are found in most of the food we eat and are also fed to the livestock which is our meat supply. it is not legally necessary to label foods here that are gmo. however, there are many countries that do require it and I understand the use of any GMO seeds to grow food is prohibited in the Philippines. I do believe though that Gmo products are likely imported into the Phils. Ok…..so you wanna know what my point is….what does all this have to do with losing weight. well since cutting out most GMO grains and replacing them with foods made with non GMO flour and corn, my stomah is receding and I am down almost one size in my clothes and it has only been 6 weeks of starting to alter my diet away from foods that are GMO. it might be worth your time to find out from your baker what kind of flour goes into the breads you get from them. and also to avoid things like crackers and cookies that are prepackaged. I can hardly wait to get to the Phils where i can grow some of my own food from GMO free seeds and I believe I will be much healthier and wont age nearly as fast. exercise is good too. i plan to do more of that when I get there too. however, i will have to take time to adjust to the heat and humidity and I have a bad knee which limits too much walking. good luck to you and your son in your quest to be thinner and healthier’

    1. I don’t know about all that. I’m such a picky eater and right now the choices that are here are not very many. Perhaps when they get the malls built and we have a more modern supermarket, the quality and selection will increase.

  2. Good Luck on your program UJ. Just a hint (or free advice and worth what you pay for) Having lost some weitht in the past, When you start your walks, you must make sure you walk at a fast clip for well over 15 minutes. The 1st 15 minutes only uses energy in your system, after the initial 15 you start to burn fat (or stored energy) This program is for strenuous exercise. Walking at a good clip you probably need to walk longer. Since moving here, I try to walk 2 hours a day at a fast pace, and so far I have not gained any weight in retirement. 🙂

    1. Well Scott I know a lot about losing weight after all those years on the weight management program in the military. It’s just the execution and my diet that I have trouble with. Of course that’s the 2 biggest things. Exercising properly would be my #3 item.
