Default Want to lose weight?

I bought a digital scale and was surprised to learn that I lose ~2 lbs overnight, through transpiration, respiration & micturation.

Usually I starve myself but then binge eat once/week so I now have a new strategy: trying to keep the slope of this line (as calculated by Excel) at about -0.3 lbs/day.

Notes:
Wt with a half pound of underwear on so as not to get any women who may be present unduly excited.
Evening measurement except as noted

date| # of days| wt| Notes
17 0 170.6
18 1 170.2
19 2 170.4
20| 3| 169.2| morn
21 4
22 5

-0.40 =calc'd slope in lbs/day

So you are telling me I just need to sleep more. I think I’ll try your diet out.

That's one conclusion.

Speaking of logical (or not) conclusions, here's a word puzzle for you, Mr. 16415:
In country A, hospitals kill 90,000 per year and guns kill 60,000 per year. Are hospitals more dangerous than guns in this country?
