low carb isnt necessarily the best idea. you dont know his body or how it reacts to carbs, or fats. its easy to jsut throw out the general current concensus, but some people do react better to different carbs, not just lower carbs.

'Shoot first and ask questions later'. Works well in Westerns, but not so sure it's helpful on a forum with an ethos like MAB.

I've had a great experience with the low carb lifestyle. Its not for everyone, but it could be worth a try. If you have questions about food choice, meal plans, etc for low carbing, let me know, and I'll help where I can.

True...and maybe i should have given a little context to my post:

i've been fat most of my life. The last 5 years or so I have "tried" to lose weight and nothing worked. I thought it was genetic and nothing could be done. I did the same things he did: asked the same questions and got the same answers.

The past 6 months, I tried harder and am seeing results.

The difference? I look back on the past and realized I never gave an honest effort. A slice of pizza here won't hurt, some ice cream won't hurt. I could eat a little more and i'll just work it off.

The bottom line is that he likely never really tried as hard as he thinks he did. I know i didn't.

Fair enough. And good for you for your results. I guess I'm saying that 'just try harder' may have been your solution, and it might even be most people's solution, but without knowing more about the OP, it may not be his solution.

So we need some more info from the OP before we get the pitchforks out.

He was asked several times to give more details but provided little info, so i grabbed my pitchfork and torch.

We dont know what his carb sensitivity is, but i am willing to bet it is average.

To the original poster, if you truly want a diet to strip fat without much thinking or dreaded cardio, look up carbnite. no counting calories or macros...just avoid carbs like the plague....keep fats high.

essentially it is ultra low carb, high protein/fat with one day a week where you can go nuts on doughnuts, pizza, ice cream etc.

I think before you worry about the whole diet thing, what are your workouts? how much physical activity are you doing?

do you go in and just do a bodybuilding type workout, and body splits? if that's the case, you need to change that up quite a bit.

I don't think you should try any diet whatsoever right now. What you need to do is change behaviors and ask yourself these questions.

Do you drink soda?
Do you eat fast foods?
Do you only eat two or three large meals during the day?
Do you drink 10 glasses of water a day?

and i'm just getting started brother. 5'9" and 290lb means that you need to change lifestyle behaviors before you start worrying about low fat or carb diets.
