Ok, so here is the skinny (lol); I am a 20 year old male back from my sophomore year at college. I started the Fall semester at about 180 pounds and came home around 199 pounds. Yes, I put on about 20 pounds in 8 months. I put on most of the weight not because of a lack of excercise, but rather too much snacking on junk food and fast food. Now that I am back home I already cut those bad habits out. I also am a real dedicated individual and can stick to a diet almost 100%. I also enjoy excercising and when I am not working; I run 1.5 miles a day in addition to playing basketball or whatever else I do. I normally do really well on diets and drop weight incredibly fast, I can easily lose 3,4 or 5 pounds in a week. I have a weird schedule, but a typical day for me is: 1.) wake up at 12:00 PM 2.) eat at 2:00 PM (normally like a simple sandwich, fruit and some Quaker Rice snacks) 3.) go work at 3:00 PM (I work at a grocery store stocking shelves so I am always moving around and lifting stuff; its similar to working out). 4.) Take my break at 7:00 PM (Normally I'll eat a yogurt or banana and a healthy frozen food meal, aka South Beach Personal Pizza) 5.) Go back to work at 7:45 and work until 11:30 PM or 12:00 AM 6.) At 12:30 AM or 1:00 AM I'll eat whatever is left over in the fridge, or eat snack foods. Occasionally, I will slip up and eat junk food here. 7.) Chillax from 1:00 AM until about 3:00 or 4:00 AM and then go to bed. Basically, if someone has tips on how to lose weight or has an idea for a diet I am game. Right now, I have just been watching the total amount of Calories I eat in a day. I don't count them, but I just eyeball them and try to keep the number low.
