    Around June I decided it was time to clean up my diet and start exercising more regularly. I've been at it for about 3 months, and the change has been great. I was shopping today, trying on clothes, and I was shocked at how much better I look. It's much more fun to go shopping when you're happy about how you look!

    I went cold turkey, and cut out all junk food / snack food / bad food. When I'm eating out for work, I just order whatever the healthiest option is. I'm also going to the gym 5 times a week, doing weights and riding an exercise bike. It's definitely taken dedication, but it has been 100% worth it.

    I haven't been weighing myself regularly, but I've easily lost 25lbs (down to 175 from 200) and it's become enough of a habit that I'm excited about going forward.

    Start today! Trust me, you'll enjoy it!


    Awesome Bob...great job...keep it up man!

    losing FAT (i'm assuming this is what you mean by "weight" loss) is SIMPLE: eat less calories than you burn.

    all that other stuff about macronutrients, processed foods, trans fats, etc. don't matter and is just marketing to get you buy other people's products, foods, and services that you don't need. they're just creating a demand/need that doesn't exist.

    with that said, fat loss is SIMPLE, but not necessarily easy because eating in a caloric deficit does suck. there's just no way around it. i don't recommend exercise too because it's horrible bang for the buck and a grossly inefficient use of time. would rather not spend that 5 minutes eating that 1000 calorie burrito or spend 3 hours running off those 1000 calories?
