mid december i was ~220lb
i've stopped eating carbs, sugar and grains (except for the occasional pizza )
I'm 190 now
and i only exercise once a week (hockey)
eat meat (not processed), raw veggies, butter, eggs, full fat yogurt,...
too much of any one thing is bad
diet should consist mainly of fruits + veggies and a bit of meat
avoid/minimize processed food
eat a clove of garlic a day!
eat nuts for snack
drink plenty of water if you exercise
