    I am a 52 year old mom who can categorically declare that this is the site I’ve been looking for all my life! Wish I’d known about it before… the info and advice makes perfect sense and works perfectly too. I’ve started shedding pounds without feeling deprived and I’m on top of the world. Didn’t know it could be so simple. Thanks for providing & sharing so much important info for free. God bless you, creator of a-calorie-counter, whoever you are. And, Dhanashri, let your mom go for it!

    Thanks for the site. Reading all of your articles has been great – the dry wit and deft skewering of the myths is priceless. Much appreciation for the high quality information. I’ve tried so many gimmick diets and when the novelty of the angle wore off, I always reverted. Atkins, Protein Power, South Beach, Body for life, Sugar Busters, Weight Watchers. I’ve tried big-name crap supplements too. Hydroxycut, Xenadrine, Metabolife, ECA stacker, ad nauseum. Anyway, with the sober and sound guidance found on acaloriecounter.com, I’ve gone from 320 lbs to 295 lbs in about 3.5 months. My biggest problem as a life-long weightlifter is trying to preserve my muscle as I lose weight. I’ve always been able to bench press my body weight for 2 unaided reps, so I guess as long as I can keep doing at least that, it will have to do. My goal is 195 pounds by my 40th birthday (360 days from now) so it will be a little hard to swallow having my bench go from 325 to 195. I’m pretty sure I’ll be able to keep it at 225 though. Keeping it a 275 would be even better. Any thoughts on retaining muscle and strength during weight loss would be appreciated, although perhaps you’ve addressed these already and I just missed it.

    One question: any idea on how effective just using table sugar instead of dextrose is for the post-workout shake?
