    CR, what worked for me is 3 meals a day at pretty exact times, no Fast food, all fish and turkey for meat and lots of Vegetables. Also very little pasta of any kind. NO SNACKS at all. No Sodas at all. Once my weight went down a bit I was able to exercise a lot also which helped.

    I went from 255 to 150. Am 5' 8". 150 for me is right and I felt like a young kid. Can walk for 10 miles each way full speed and hardly get tired. Before the diet one block and I was ready to give up!

    The #1 thing folks trying to reduce daily calories should 100% avoid...is calorie containing beverages!

    If folks wanted only to cut one thing out of their daily diets...high calorie beverages is the thing (sodas, juices, energy drinks, kool-aid, alcohol & beer, etc.). There are even studies that say drinking low-cal or zero-cal beverages is not really helpful either.

    Substitute water for all of these beverages...and folks would be surprised how many calories can be saved in a day.

    Me...I'm almost addicted to kool-aid, soda, cakes, and cookies. But I balance out those calories consumed with working out 7 days a week.

    Agreed 100% on the drinks. That really helped but with me I had to be very careful with food also. I mostly drink water and some flavored water. Nothing else except for the occasional Diet Sierra Mist with dinner at a Restaurant. Otherwise no sodas. I never did alcohol at all so that was not an issue for me. For my Inner Ear issue I had to cut Sodium almost completely out of my diet as well as all caffeine. Feel 100% better after all that.

    I'm slightly taller than you. I'm 5'8.5" or 9" now. My last weight in last month was 156lbs. I was 150 the month before that. I started doing weight training twice a day and cardio 4 days a week and one rest day.

    I haven't been eating healthy though. Been eating mostly del taco. >_<"

    I don't drink soda or Beer. Just milk, water, green tea and occassion lemonade.

    Probably going to have to end up doing that. I had like 30% body fat before I started doing cardio 4 times a week and weight training. Down to like 22%.

    That is so cool! Good for you, man!

    I'm impressed with your newfound discipline. You didn't even need to go on Biggest Loser. You have literally added years to your life. I'm very happy for you. Health is so darn important and controlling what we eat (being reasonable) is such an easy way to promote good health. ...and of course regular exercise.
    Keep up the routine.

    Well done!

    It's hard to lose weight and as a lot of people can atest to; it is hard to stay committed long enough to show a result like that!

    If what is said is not what is meant....

    Congrats. That is awesome!! I've just started after years of abusing my body to lose weight and get back in shape. Really glad you shared that. It's really inspiring !

    No obstacle should be impossible to overcome now! Well done! Kind of ironic - the caption above the picture you posted says "This image has been resized". lol
