Comment The diet is unimportant... (Score 2, Interesting) 588

I recently lost 40+ pounds in ~6 months using Atkins and no exercise (just started exercising this week). I'm 46.

My takeaways:
1. If calories in calories burned, you'll lose weight.
2. The hardest part about that is controlling appetite.
3. The best way to control appetite is with a low carb diet.

This is the second time I did Atkins. The first time (10 years ago), I lost 60+ pounds in 6 months and I exercised 5 days a week. A guy at my gym had a shirt that read "Look great naked! 90% diet, 10% exercise" and the shirt was right. Diet is much, much more important that exercise when it comes to weight loss.

So, uh, no - diet isn't unimportant - it's the *most* important thing for weight loss - at least in my personal experience.

Earlier this week I purchased MLB.TV for $120 so I could watch baseball on my TV. Since MLB.TV requires a login to the PSN (a new "feature" this year), I haven't been able to watch the service I'm paying for. I could spend the time to write threatening emails, but in the end nothing will fix this.

Sony - you really, really need to get your act together. I know you think this is only affecting "game-playing" but damn - this is really inexcusable.
