  • Aloha Doc Joyner, I am obese, but highly active. And if I have a 2liter Pepsi, I will drink it all without thinking. I have lost thirty pounds over the last 14 months, but still am forty pounds over my ideal weight. I do the 600 calories of walking, cycling, and dancing a day, and am not type II diabetic. So I seem to be an indicator that not every overweight person is a type II diabetic. I have always been active, but I also have a challenge with junk foods. I do eat vegetables without salad dressing, but donuts and pizza take up a large portion of my diet. I don't diet, but I do eat sensibly (kind of) when I lose my pounds. The funny thing is, when I lost the 30 pounds, it seems as if my body feels that is okay- or enough. I mean if you are five foot six, like me, then 197 might sound horrible, but when you used to weigh 229 pounds, it seems ...svelte. So is there some kind of barrier to cross, like the 600 calorie one, but for food? Great talk. Kevin
