    For me, I have two 'cheat meals' per week....that's whatever I want, cheeseburger, fries, shake. I usually eat clean at other times. I also hit the gym 4 times a week. It's not a diet, more like a lifestyle change.


    This was the biggest I've been in my whole life, at about 220 lbs:

    This before and after is approx. 1 year. Before was 220 lbs, after was about 160 lbs I think.

    I eventually got down to 140 lbs, but that was with eating at home pretty much all the times so I know what went inside my body. I was also training and going to the gym at least 10 times a week. I became a bit too thin. I got back up to 155 lbs now, which is still skinny.

    People always asked me how I did it. In a nutshell:

    That is fucking dumb lol Eat garbage...food that has no nutrition whatsoever...so then you hit the gym to burn it off...only to eat the same garbage food the following week. You sound like a hamster. That run on it's wheel looping same shit over and over again.

    Why do you consume that garbage into your system? Did you know that most of those foods are made by angry employees that sometimes put mucus, sperm and other crap you can't see on them?

    I knew a manager at Burger King that told me stories. It made me immediately retire from fast foods years ago. I have not eaten fast foods in over 10yrs. Mostly because it's food that does not provide any beneficial nutrition into my body.

    yep, I do the same thing, and I also went through a similar weight loss: was 205 a couple of years after college (I'm 5'10"), lost about 45lbs in a year or so without really having a set technique (honestly the main thing I can remember doing is cutting out diet coke haha). Now a few years later I'm at 145-150 and the lifestyle is real easy to maintain. I stay focused during the week then kind of eat what I want on the weekends. To be honest I don't really enjoy too much fast food anymore, though that may be part of just growing older.
    IMO all those diet books and trends are kind of a waste of time, because the very best thing anyone can do is take a long hard look at their life and see what works for them, and where they want to be. As long as you don't expect quick miracles you'll find a way to get to decent shape, without having to turn into a calorie-counting Crossfit maniac

    Right, because you never eat out at a restaurant? I mentioned burger, fries, and shakes...but not only fast food places sell them FYI.

    Thank you for your helpful post. Very informing.

    Bro, show me some evidence that cholesterol levels in isolation have any effect whatsoever on the endpoints we care about. Show me some evidence that links dietary fat or cholesterol intake with cholesterol levels. Show me some evidence that the standard "sensible, healthy diet" is better for controlling blood pressure than a ketogenic diet with tons of vegetables and meat (mad potassium, yo). I agree with you that high insulin levels, tris and BP (the criteria for the metabolic syndrome) are bad for you, but I disagree with you about what causes these things to be high. Excessive starch (causes hyperinsulinemia), gluten grains (hyperinsulinemia and leaky gut type syndrome), soy (phytoestrogens and bad n3/n6 ratio), sugar (hyperinsulinemia and advanced glycation end products), salt (hypervolemia >>> modest increased blood pressure, balance with potassium) and too much seed and nut oils (whacked out n3/n6 ratio; pro-inflammation, advanced rates of atherosclerosis) are what are to blame here.
