"As you can see there are many opinions on what to do. Do this to gain muscle and lose fat...no no no that will burn more muscle than fat etc etc etc. I have quite a bit of training when it comes to health and fitness nearly completing a masters in…"

"Can you get the NIH to pay for a few sessions with a nutritionist? And ask your GP how he recommends you lose weight. In the States, you can well on the right track with a few sessions with a personal trainer for under $200."

"Good job! As you progress, consider making a weekly 6-8 hour window to use high GI carbs to awaken your metabolic functions.  4-10 PM works best (must end close to bed time).  Jess Levens above mentions that a keto diet is not a long term…"

"I was able to drop 35 lbs quickly by going on a ketogenic diet and doing the Insanity program. Keto diet is not a long term solution, but if you want a head start, it's an option. For me dropping that weight was made working out much easier on…"
