    An interesting article. I can say that when my forties came, as happened to this author, and I had likewise retired from a very active life and became a lot less energetic, the pounds started to pile on. For 20 years I could eat what I wanted, as much as I wanted, and my trim weight never varied so much as a pound. I know, because it was officially recorded annually during mandatory Army physicals.

    Perhaps some good points the author makes. I especially endorse that everyone's metabolism is different, so there's no "one size fits all" formula for weight control, nor diet. In my opinion, you experient until you find what works for YOU. And view with skepticism all these diet hucksters who are out there trying to make a fast buck off of you.

    He also made the claim once that a medication that was prescribed for his prostate cancer was the reason for his weight ballooning out of control. I proved that to be false with some research and he never used that excuse again.
