Here's a guide on how many calories you need to maintain weight (meaning to lose, you need to eat less than the magic number).  I'm guessing you fall somewhere between the first and second one:

You exercise: Almost never
Multiply your current weight by: 12

You exercise: Lightly, one to three days a week
Multiply your current weight by: 13.5

You exercise: Moderately, three to five days a week
Multiply your current weight by: 15.5

You exercise: Vigorously, six to seven days a week
Multiply your current weight by: 17

You exercise: Vigorously, daily, and you have a physical job
Multiply your current weight by: 19

Just how loose a guide is this? It's telling me that I need to consume <1500 calories per day to maintain my current weight if I maintain my current exercise regime.

Almost never. I have a desk job and a car, I don't have a weight set or a gym membership, and I rarely walk anywhere between late October and mid-April.

It's a shame that equivocating doesn't burn calories.

Establishing healthful habits is more important than closely tracking your daily calorie intake. Don't eat a "lunchable." Have an apple and some yogurt tomorrow instead. Keep doing whatever is easiest and cheapest and you'll be dead before you're 60.

Exactly.  If your calories are all from high sodium crap like lunchables (which I have never had... not even one), you're going to end up with other problems.

That's not actually true. Eating breakfast doesn't change your metabolism, but it does have other beneficial effects. You'll have more energy and you're less likely to gorge yourself on on junk food later in the day.

Actually, it is true (assuming you're getting recommended amounts of sleep and don't eat very late at night).  Lack of eating on a regular basis causes the body to produce less enzymes that metabolize fat.  If you eat at 5:00, and don't eat again until 12:00, that's going 19 hours without eating, which is a fairly long time.  Obviously, if you eat dinner at a late time, and lunch earlier, this won't apply.

Huh, I'd thought that I had remembered reading that it was a myth, but after completing a bit of research, it seems that you're correct. I should have trusted you.

Jeff, did you really lose 6 pounds?  Because the last time the forum convinced you to diet, you magically started losing weight really easily, but then we found out that you lied about the weight loss.

Yes, I have lost 6 pounds.  This is no lie.

That's what you told us before...

It's not a lie, if you believe it...

Did you use organic, locally-sourced ground beef?

Have you been eating heavy food? Two days ago I ate some habanero chicken wings and I'll be damned if my stomach didn't churn and churn until the next morning!   

That sounds delicious. Did you complement the meal with a good drink?

This is going to sound excruciatingly lame and self-help but if you want to lose weight it's not so much changing habits as changing who you are. Don't become someone who passes up junk food for a salad, become someone who doesn't even consider the junk food as an option.

I am on vacation and it is Christmas, so I'm not even thinking about a diet.

Whether more people agree with me or you is entirely irrelevant. My point (really, Oakvale's point) is that if you're thinking of a diet as "torture" then you've already lost.

You would never have been concerned about your weight if you didn't know that there's something very wrong with your physical health. Respecting your body is linked to your spiritual well-being.

The term 'zero marginal product worker' comes to mind.

I'm off tomorrow, then it will be time to get down to business Wednesday. I've got 2 11-hour days coming up Wednesday and Thursday (10 1/2 + 1/2 lunch).

Sounds intense! Remember your calisthenics. Take it easy on yourself and to pack a few 'energy snacks' for endurance:

Hey, I've got a routine and it works.  There is a saying "If it ain't broke, don't fix it!".

I don't know about the rest of y'all, but I like my apartment on 70.

70 degrees is a treat. I only leave mine that high when I have a party or special guests. Normally my thermostat is at 62 degrees, and it's lower when I'm sleeping or out of the house.
