I'm about 318 now even lifting weights and watching what I ate for the most part I couldnt get under 300 lbs unless I did a strict Atkins diet then the weight came off fast and the gain faster when adding sugar back in. As Americans we have way too much temptation and bad food choices and high fructose corn syrup in just about everything! Have to try to eat whole grains and limit simple sugars.
I feel for the most part our body weight is like a thermostat and will creep to a weight and stick there and losing weight fast is like starving so ur body adapts and it is hard to drop wright after the first 20-30 lbs or so.
Keeping weight in check is very tough for many people me included. We can look at food and gain weight! :what:
