"I find that the people who are most in danger of putting on massive amounts of weight are those who previously were very active. In high school, I was on sports teams year-round. When I went to college I joined the Judo team and that kept me in…"
Hi guys, So to cut a long story short, over the past 3 years, I've gone from being 16 stone (around 220lbs), training in Muay Thai, working out every other day with KBs etc, to being close to 23 stone (320lbs) and none of the above.Some of this was due to a bad ankle fracture that took a long time to clean up and a long move to the UK which got me right out of any good habits eating wise, etc.Excuses aside, it's high time I got back into this, but I need to ask... how?I still have my (12 and…See More
