I was fast becoming over weight this year and then i watched an episode of Horizon that was about living longer by eating less. The presenter showed us a diet where for two days a week you only eat 600 calories and the rest of the week you can eat as you please.
I thought i'd give it a go and it's been amazing. I don't really feel hungry on the limited days (there's a lot you can do with 600 calories to play with) and i managed to loose a couple of stone bringing me back in to the safe weight limit i'm now spot on what a healthy man my age should be, funny thing was as soon as i reached a healthy weight, i stopped losing weight!
Apart from the weight loss, i feel awesome! I mean i feel really awesome. No bloating, no digestive issues, everything feels good. I have more energy and drive.
I'd recommend it to any one that wants to feel good. I wasn't ridiculously overweight before, a couple of stone probably, but the health benefits are amazing

Ridiculous. The reason there's an "Obesity Epidemic" is because of all the completely uneccessary additives that are put into most of the food we buy -- and fast food has more additives than most.
If anything, one should strive to limit fast food intake to once or twice a month, maximum.
Sure there are people who overeat -- but there are far less overeaters than one would think.

Just Asking, I'm cursed with not putting on weight. Do you eat large Meals or Lots Meals or Lots snacks. Have you tried alternative snacks such as banana's, nuts, dried fruit.

My downfall is my body is bad at burning calories no matter how much exercise I do.
The holy-than-thou crew will always say "exercise and a good diet is the only way" but that's crap. I mountain bike everyday, I skateboard most days, I swim on a regular basis and walk the dog miles a day. My diet isn't amazing but is far from terrible. I don't eat junk food and my partner cooks decent healthy meals every day. The fact of the matter is I've hit my mid-thirties and my body just isn't as good at it's job as it used to be. For me the horizon diet absolutely suits me down to the ground

If it was bad at it you could be burning them like crazy, your body might be efficient at burning them, so it requires less
Now that said, from your other post, you're still eating a lot of carbs, try cutting those down to under 100g a day.

Nope, couple of bits of toast for breakfast, sandwich at lunch and varied dinners usually of steamed vegetables and chicken.
When I was a teenager I was as skinny as a rake, hit 21 and it all went to pot.
I have a mate like you, no matter what he eats he looks like he's never eaten, he was up my way lately and done a local pubs burger challenge no problems, all very odd.

And there's your great Science at it's best.
Each week a global thinker from the worlds of philosophy, science, psychology or the arts is given a minute to put forward a radical, inspiring or controversial idea – no matter how improbable – that they believe would change the world.
