Water and coffee here. Full heavy cream at times in the coffee, otherwise straight. I limit carbs in the forms of sugars and grains. Our bodies preferred fuel is fat.

Not to mention your teeth will
thank you!

No processed sugar. Zero, ever. I know this sounds extreme but there is science behind it: sugar causes most people to have a response that makes them desire more sugar or carbs, almost immediately. Basically, it makes you feel hungrier than you really are. If you cut out sugar completely, you'll discover after about a week that you no longer crave it.

Here's the even worse part. All sorts of things have processed sugar. To succeed, you'll need to read a lot of labels and then cut out those foods. Sadly, cereal, almost any cereal, is right out.

Depending on how you are made, your particular body might have the same reaction to milk (which contains lactose, a sugar very similar to sucrose table sugar) and processed carbs (bread, pasta). If so, you need to cut those out totally as well.

Sorry for the bad news but if you do this, losing weight is far, far easier than if you don't.

Beyond that, protein and leafy greens should become your staples. You get used to it quick. This is how movie stars eat, and it works. First week or so is a rough adjustment though.

For exercise I like to follow one of Jim Stoppani's programs in the gym. Along with about 15 miles of running through the week.

For diet I do whole foods, plant based. No meat, no dairy, no processed foods. Eat all the beans, veggies, fruits, seeds, nuts, and grains that I want.

I'm 5'11" 190 lbs. 35yo. Since switching to a whole food plant based diet a year ago, I've never felt better, never performed as well, and never recovered as fast as I do now. I get plenty of protein to build muscle (contrary to popular belief, all food has protein), and have plenty of energy for all my workouts and for running around a busy operating room for 10 hours a day.

It's not so much what you eat as to how, but I do intermittent fasting (IF) and love it....only eat from 10am to 6pm. Eat cleaner in spring and summer, less processed foods, etc, but just doing the fasting I look and feel awesome....helps with insulin sensitivity, your body's not spending energy digesting food constantly, you're burning fat at the end of the fasting period, etc

Google lean gains for all kinds of info

IF and raw milk FTW!!

Add some milk in there also. It'll make it taste so much better.

6'4 the biggest I've been was 287 IIRC a few years back. Working in the oilfield 21on 7 off hard manual labor, no time for real meals only granola bars & turkey sandwiches between holes and to tired after work got me to about 230 6 months later. It worked alight but it was long and hard. I have a desk job now only walking no time for gym (95hr weeks are common) so I found a much easier way...

What worked fastest and easiest for me was a few key points.

Stay under 20g net carbs
Eat about 140g protein ( with fiber)
Eat about 160g fat
Don't over do working out
Get sleep

Recently I put on some pounds (about 40) from eating poorly, we also had a baby and I gained weight along with her. She would want to eat all kinds of bad food then after a few bites didn't want it, well it looked good to me and I didn't wanna just let it go to waste lol so I'd polish off her food after mine. Fast Fwd we recently had a vacation and she wanted her pre baby body back for bikinis on the beach so she let me do all the cooking and shopping (I frequently travel for work and usually drop 15-25lbs in 2-6 weeks) soooo about 3 weeks before our vacation I started our new meal plans. She went from 135 to 120 and I went from 248 to 228. Vacation hit we ate all kinda bad stuff and drank with the family and after about a week of bad behavior we were almost back at square one. She really liked the results and not needed to go to the gym made it an easer comment to stick with so again I cooked. However this time the weight dropped faster. About 10 days after the vacation we were both down a few more lbs than before we left.

I followed the 7 day meal plan from cavemanketo website (free, no signup or anything)
It made compliance easer I'd cook one day and it would last us for a few days. To have the meals already ready and waiting really makes it a no brainier about what's for supper Ect.

Our vacation was less than a month ago so we're both still on the road to pre baby but I have no doubts we will be back before Halloween. I have been @ work for the past 2-3 weeks so I haven't weighed myself but in boots and work uniform I was 235 just before I walked out to catch my flight. My goal is 200-215 hers is 110ish
I found that caveman keto site last year but never tried any recipies. I did the breakfast casserole and it's damn task amd pretty filling. Tonight I tried the beer can burgers and they are awesome. Do t skimp on the pepper jack

Thanks, it's my old trusty. 9 years old and abused without a problem. I just added a thermometer to it for the next time I do those burgers
