The transcript looks accessible enough but having seen the show, I haven't bothered to read thru. So I wasn't clear about the source of the material you included - was "Total nonsense" your comment - I wasn't sure what aspect is considered total nonsense. And I didn't understand what "go big or go home meant" either.
The benefits of exercise are general health and wellbeing of course, rather than as a weight loss strategy, I agree. Though, as you say, it can help - and allows you to eat a little more than if you don't exercise...!!
PS it is a bit annoying when we can't totally delete one of our own posts!

Sorry; poorly worded final edits in an attempt to be brief. I meant that the idea that will power is our best (and by implication, only) solution is what's nonsense. It's one of those beliefs - like the fear of fasting - that seems more than obvious at the time, but is persistently contradicted with personal experience.
I haven't been around, because I decided to join WW again. I did it many years ago and was very successful, so decided I needed to try it again. I'm still fasting using 16:8, if I didn't, I don't know how I'd stay within my WW points! But it seems that I need the structure and strictness of the WW plan to really lose weight. I did it this week and it went well. I ate all my points and used my activity points and ate many of the "free" foods. I cross-tracked in MyFitnessPal and am eating around 1000 calories a day, with my high weekend days being around 1200! The Connect app (a.k.a. message boards) are VERY busy, it's kinda fun, although easy to get lost!
Anyway, I might pop in from time to time, but best wishes to everyone on your weight loss journey!
Your posts are always inspiring, so I hope we get to see you popping in.
