Seems like more women suffer from this, but for me, it's a serious issue:
I am 6 ft 2 and 250 lbs. I've read all sorts of books on training, diet and I think I can already call myself an expert.
The problem is: I have all kinds of schedules, tried any diet but after 1 or 2 days ( my record is 16 though) I freak out and need my pizza, french fries,.....
It's always been stronger than myself like a voice saying: eat bad food or I'll kill you ( don't take it literally)
But on these kinda fora you always see hundred of schedules, diets, but no one talks about the emotional side of it.
I have no problems with training, but I do have a problem with nutrition.
Until last yr my weight was around 200 lbs, then I felt okay because all I had to do was shedding maybe 15-20 pounds to have a normal weight
in a few months time I gained 50 pounds ( ran out of batteries for my scale)
and right now it's just so hard when you hear people saying: don't lose more than 1 lbs a week. Because all of the sudden my weight was so much higher.
I have a 35 Pct of body fat.
And the thing is: I don't eat as much as when my weight was around 200 lbs. Had bloodwork done, everything was fine.
Please only react if you have something serious to say thanks
