What is the point of this blog?

This blog has the double purpose of being my personal weight-loss blog and my attempt to separate fact from fiction when it comes to the common mythology of dieting. It’s all a selfish pursuit really. The more I know about how all of this works, the more likely I am to be successful in permanently losing weight. That’s the theory at least. 

Don’t get me wrong, I do hope that some of the information I put here will be helpful to others as well, but really this is all about me.

I welcome correction, but am not interested in platitudes or politics, nor am I interested in how such and such fad diet worked for you. Sources are generally going to be required for any extraordinary claims.

To be clear:

Hey, I noticed a mistake in this post. Or. Here’s a study that contradicts some of the information in your post. = Good.

You just need some willpower, fatty! Or. Everyone knows that being fat isn’t really unhealthy. = STFU.

Comments are moderated to keep spam and trolls to a minimum so if you are neither of these, you will make it through eventually. Be patient.
