At 5'6" and 240 pounds, I don't think anyone could call me anorexic. Even if I lose the 50-60 pounds I think I should, I don't think anyone would call me anorexic. After following ERFYT for almost two years quite diligently, I don't think anyone can say I'm not doing the program. I'm very pleased with what it has done for my overall health, and I very much agree with you about de-emphasizing counting every gram and obsessing about weight and size all the time. The fact is, I gave that up (at least the dieting part) a long time before I ever found ERFYT. My weight and size had remained stable for several years. They still do after two years on the program. It was only after reading Karla's posts first about her gums, then about gluten, and finally about carbs in general that I realized that I was one of those very carb-sensitive indidivuals. No matter how many Avoids I avoid, if I eat what was my fill of grains and fruits and keep fat intake low, then the inescapable fact is I cannot control sugar cravings or more starch intake.
However, having now done that (reduced carbs considerably and added some fat back in), I find that I am no longer at the mercy of my cravings. I'd still like the weight and the extra fat to come off, and I think it will now, and I'm not willing to leave ERFYT to accomplish it. But if there hadn't been these "extraneous" discussions, sometimes involving weight loss, I'd never have learned what I think is critical for my body. And I don't think I'm done (learning). This BB seems to attract some very intelligent and self-aware people whose base is ERFYT but who may have also refined that program for greater individuality, and I'd hate to see them not be able to share their greater picture. I think there are lots of minority groups of us out here, and this BB has been one of the most valuable resources I've ever come across.
