Here is a very inspiring story about Flyer's prospect Patrick Maroon, or "Fat Pat" as he was called when he weighed in at 260 pounds at 6 foot 1, now he is around 220 pounds at 6'4".

Diet & Exercise, what do you know . Good for him.

Diet isn't even that hard. I mean there are great diets, but people just cut out the soda/beer (it's ok occasionally), junk food and fried foods it's amazing what a difference it makes.

the hole issue with the fat people is their simply dumb or they are genetically ****ed (in their mind or body)

being in good shape is simple biology

i used to weight 242 with a height of 5'9 at the age of 17
i used to play american football so it didnt really bother me but then i seriously wanted a girlfriend so i started an atkins died and worked out a bit
and by a bit i mean: i quited football and i made like 20 pushups every night, thats it !
+ a smart and healthy nutrition :
it was kind of an Atkins diet but not really .Atkins is known for being low to no carb.
my nutrition based on meat and vegetable and fruits + i could eat candy sometimes i drank coke but i didn't touch potatoes rice noodles or bread.
now the point is with no carbos entering your body ,it still needs something to burn, to make energy and there we have it . the body wont burn the fat first it will burn the muscle first .so you'll end up with far less muscle and fat but to much skin to straighten up ^^.

well it ended then when after only 3 months (and it certainly was no torture) i was 18, 6'1 and 209 pound
today i am 20 still 6'1 and staying around 201 and happy that i had no yoyo effect.
i am pretty lucky cause since i was like five i have been a little fat kid ,today i am fine ,of course i liked to be more athletic but i'm working on that ; )

At age 17, I was 6'1 and about 230 pounds.

Now at age 19, I'm 6'2 (and a half) and weigh in at about 190. At one point I had dropped to 180lb. What I've put on since then is mostly muscle... though I'm still a bit fatter than I'd like to be at 15.5% body fat (gunning for about 13)

Weight loss, IMO, is much easier than muscular development. I don't have the appetite for efficient muscle growth.

My diet is acutally pretty protein deficient for gaining muscle.

I use at least one protein powder shake (whey protein) every day with my breakfast (a shot of protein gets the brain going better than any amount of coffee). I usually end up taking two or three for the day though, based on how much exercise I do (my protein powder has an ample supply of carbs as well).

I was actually in the same boat as you... I grew up as the big fat kid, lol.
