For example, last night I had a giant chef salad and when I was done I really wanted more. So I had another giant chef salad. In the past that meal would have been a giant bowl of spaghetti and then another one. And probably 2 more. So I think it's feasible that I can still eat big and lose more weight. I suppose at some point I will have to cut down on portions but as you said, as my activity levels increase then that will have an impact as well.
Ooh... Multiple swings, and a mix of hits and misses. I actually did a lot of studying in nutrition a while back and found out that burgers, grease, french fries, and even pizza aren't actually bad for you... provided you know how to make them to healthy way, and which types of meat, cheese, oil, etc to use. The hardest thing is finding a low-sodium pizza sauce recipe that still tastes good. With that accomplished, all of these other foods are options too, provided you don't pick them up from a fast food joint (who will inevitably make them in the least healthy way possible) or buy prepackaged food items (I say this knowing full well that for many people, time is at a premium, and therefore, making your food from scratch isn't always realistic.)

I also don't know what your end weight goal is, but alas, due to some bad relationship experiences I had as a young person, I *am* very skittish around people who say they want to lose weight. It carries roughly the same connotations to me as a person saying they want to lose money.

Well, salads do contain nutrients essential for your development, but there's more to a balanced diet than just that, of course.

And yeah... I guess in practice a lot of feeders would like their partner to gain, but that's not really part of the definition of the word. Feederism and gainerism aren't necessarily synonymous, even if, in 8 or so cases out of ten, they might be.

And even in some of those cases, some gainerists have specific end weight goals. I heard of one person who agreed to stop with his wife at 400.
