    There are a zillion carb counting and calorie counting diets. They
    require journaling, and counting and constant becomes
    an all consuming ritual which, after a while as you will soon see
    right here on ASD, it will come to an end. No one keeps up with all
    that for a lifetime and that's what we are talking about...a lifetime.

    Note the education that you are getting.

    Soon you can drop the log when you are ready. I logged for six weeks
    for documentation purposes. Then I quit. I can eyeball a portion size
    now and I flat don't want that much food anymore.

    When I do over eat, I know it and it don't feel good.
