    Solid advice. The fitness community is super neurotic these days, everything gets blown out of proportion. But like you said, as long as you're active and the core of your diet is good you can get away with days of overeating. It's simple really. I don't know why people always overcomplicate things.

    Im slowly loosing weight. My top weight hit over 300lbs, but im now down to 230lbs. I want to get back to 145lbs, if i get lower yey if not, then at least i can be more active then i am now. Loosing my weight would help me, because i have RA and various other bone problems and not having all this weight would help take some of the pressure off. I have recently lost around 20lbs in literally a matter of days. When i get sick, my body goes into pretty much like a shut down mode. My appetite dies and i dont want food. I can literally go for days without eating and end up losing a lot of weight all at once. I know that its not good to lose weight that way, but there is literally nothing i can do. I have to force myself to eat at least a little bit of something so i can have a bit of energy during the day and thats what ive been dealing with as of late. Ive been really sick since nov., but last month things have gotten a lot worse, because at least in nov and dec i had an appetite. Now i dont.

I'm 13 and very active and do NOT eat enough through out the week but lately every Saturday I binge BUT still exercise that day . Every Sunday I barely eat anything cause I feel guilty. And honestly thank you , I'm going to the movies with my friends this Friday and can't wait to eat some snacks . Yay . Instead of eating not enough and just healthy food I'm going to start eating ENOUGH healthy food, stay active and enjoy life ! Thank you so much I feel like a new person 💕

    Maybe the people who commonly ask this question all the time they're just too dumbfounded from the fact they see so many cheat meals or days is that they don't recognize what people do in their personal lives. You guys can disagree with me but it's just a theory and my opinion.

    There are those certain people who have a great deal of effort putting weight on no matter how much they eat. I just figured he was one of those, an ectomorph or something. I am and I just don't put weight on. However if I were to eat this much...
    Anyway the more muscle mass you have the more you'll burn when you're sitting there doing nothing. I watched the 60,000 calorie challenge and to me he just seemed extremely bloated at the end of that. Because putting on fat is a slow and gradual process.

      Flore Breon I have exactly the same problem ! I am starting to get better but all those thoughts are still haunting me. Sometimes I fall back in the black hole but quickly try to get up again. The "karate world" is helping me alot. It's annoying because every time I eat normal or, think I have eaten 2 much. I feel so bad and get those black thoughts. I was 63kg before summer time last year.. but when school started I was 55 kg. I have started to eat more and I know I'm closer to 60 kg but I scared to step on that weight machine. Even if I deep inside know that numbers doesn't matter I still care. Karate helps me allot with my dreams to get a stronger mind and become a strong and a good fighter. I think I am getting better...
      I just felt like writing and sharing my feelings... I am lucky to have so suporting ppl around me. I wish every one to find a nice helping "community" where you can build yourself up. Still as you all can hear I have a long road to go. Good bye hugs and tears from me ❤

      I thought i had the same problem. I used to eat 3 kebabs or frozen pizzas a day with 4l of coca cola for almost 3 years. I gained 50 pounds in those 3 years. Used to eat frozen pizza at 12 pm with bottle of coke for years..
      So i thought i was addicted to fast food and junk food. But no
      Once I set my mind to losing weight ( Im not really FAT . Im 5.6 with 160 pounds ) but i am going to gym for 1 month now and i lost 30 pounds already ( I have very fast metabolism )
      So once you have that locked in your mind,that you dont need junk food,you will do that. It's really not that hard..just start being active . I got addicted to workout now :)
