Nice one man!! Well done.

I used to be one of the guys that could "put everythin away and not gain anything" but i've started to put it on in the past couple of years, since i noticed ive been lookin at waht ive been eatin.

Only problem ive found is that you need more time to make your food to be healthy than if your not bothering. Therefore thats why, to me it, fast food puts it on!

I have a friend on the football team at my school who had to gain weight, so he started drinking Weight Gainer 2000: 2000 calories per cup! He drank 2 a day, and managed to LOSE 7 pounds in a month. Thats just a "wtf^^" moment.

Nice topic you got going here. My dad is an expert on this stuff (unofficially, hes not a dietician). A couple notes. I'm seeing ALOT of post regarding calorie intake. While this can have some influence on your weight it is really much more minute than you think. What you really need to worry about is what you are eating. Generally you need to avoid anything white(sugar, flour, breads, etc.), always eat with "color" (greens, fruits etc.), try not to eat past 8 o clock (I know this is a tough one for alot of us but it has been proven that eating later can cause weight gain. Many cheerleading/dance teams don't allow their performers to eat after 7-8 o clock so as to reduce weight gain. Also DO NOT take Splenda or Aspertame(diet cokes). Splenda is essentially chlorinated table salt and approximately 10% of it may be absorbed into your gastrointestinal tract. Since it is relatively new the long term effects can't be calculated yet but they don't look to good. As for aspertame it GREATLY increase your chances of heart disease/failure.
Wow, I guess a few of my dad's "health lectures" actually found their way into my head lol. I'm 17, 130 pounds, 5'-10"(thats me in my avatar). It seems that I can't gain weight no matter what I eat due to my high metabolism and constant exercise (2 hours a day, long/short distance running, sprints, weights, etc.). However I have a problem with eating too many "bad carbs" (white carbs). I have noticed a considerable increase in acne:angery: due to it. I am thinking of going on my own diet to try and fix this over the december break. If you guys want to read more on this kind of stuff head over to www.mercola.com , the guys a genius. Oh and before I go I want to leave you with a little mind boggling fact: There is a cure for cancer with a 99% success ratio with no side effects. If you wanna know about it i'll post. Good Luck with your weight goals guys! And congrats on losing what you have so far.user added image

P.S. As for chipotle, it is actually alot healthier than most restaurants. It even uses free range chickens (MUCH more healthy/safe). It's only real unhealthy parts are in the rice an tortilla and a few of the cooking oils.

Hey, guys, just thought I'd post a bit of an update. I'm 14 lbs (6 kg) from my first goal, that is, getting back to my highschool weight. Since Jan 2005, I've lost a total of 75 lbs (34 kg)! After the next 14, I hope to set a 2nd goal to lose another 20 (9 kg) or so. user added image

Here's a little comparison photo using a picture I took of myself when I got my first copy of my first book and then another picture taken this last Easter sunday:

I'm pretty proud of what I've done so far, but gotta keep it going. user added image
