also, for an overweight person; just reducing calorie intake is the most important thing. people want to believe that they can throw in some vegetables and those vegetables are going to make them healthier. thats not really accurate. he could be perfectly healthy if he just ate smaller portions of biscuits and crackers.
No one is discussing overweight folks here. We both are very fit and probably exercise more than most people. No need for a nutrition discussion, I assure you. We are both quite knowledgeable on that topic. He's a mountain bike racer - he burns through a lot of calories. No issues with that at all.
