as far as actual weight goes, it doesnt matter so much what you eat but how much. that ratio crap doesnt mean anything, it's about calories, the only thing about carbs is you dont necessarily feel full. for example i like sausage egg and cheese mcgriddles, and they have a good amount of fat, but surprisingly keeps me full for a long time because i feel disgusting after eating it, and the fats prevent me from wanting to snack. i wasn't that overweight, but over the past year and a half just light exercise and semi-portion control i've lost 20 lbs and now with my regimen, that has stayed fairly stable now. i eat junk food when i want i just dont gorge myself on it. my gym routine isnt even that intense, perhaps 3 days a week for 30-40 min. from what i've seen the biggest mistake is people are too intense with their routine, and so when they relapse they go hog-wild.
