it sort of feels like wasting away rather than dieting.

I am afraid I was rather rude to my insurance-sponsored nutritionist when I was first diagnosed. When she started talking about foods I should not eat, or how to moderate portion size, I balked and said I didn't want to become skin and bones like her. As it turned out, that didn't happen. I did lose weight but was never muscle-bound to begin with. Having spent the last 10 months working out with a trainer doing strength conditioning, 8 years later I feel much better at having a bit of muscle on my limbs.

Who has never followed a formal plan but uses the nutritional knowledge he learned as well as common sense and self-control to manage his diet...
