How to Lose 100+ Pounds and Keep it Off For Life
Great, no nonsense, and scientifically sound article. Avery good friend of mine is a world title holding body-builder and I've picked up a few tips from him. A couple of my personal hints though:Don't put it off and say 'I'll start on Monday' - when you feel the urge, start - when Monday comes you might just have lost your momentum.Qualty over quantity - (though some might say this tip might be better left until after you've lost the weight ;-)) go for something with the same cals, but twice the taste even if it costs twice the price. Treat yourself to that expensive wine, or gourmet dark chocolate (or whatever your passion is) and savour it at half the rate (a bar of good dark chocolate lasts 10-12 times as long as a cheap bar in my house). I found that increased flavour was a great way of slowing down my eating and making me appreciate just how much I was taking on and helps me maintain my weight. The cost factor also helps prevent guzzling that wine!Afraid your food might go off if you don't eat it? freeze it as it is, turn it into soups and freeze it (and soups apparantly fill you up more, or so a recent BBC programme reckoned).And I totally agree about the Netflix queue idea - I keep a boxset on the go that I watch soley when I'm on my bike (with 'turbo-trainer') and it helps to drive me back onto the bike simply to watch the next episode (and it wastes less of that precious time we seem to have less of).

I've been playing around with timelapse but have never attempted it with a DSLR as I have read that it potentially can shorten the lifespan (max 100,000-200,000 shots?). My first 24hr shoot was actually with a Raspberry Pi which at 1 shot every 30 seconds gives me 2,880 shots (2*60*24) - so 50 timelapses at that rate would, in theory, kill an average DSLR (50*2,880 = 144,000). Admittedly a lot of that first test shoot was nighttime (and so utterly pointless!) but 12 hours of daylight at 50fps would give you a nice smooth clip of around 29 seconds long (2*60*12/50) from 1,440 shots (and a hundred of those timelapes might equal 1 dead DSLR)
