OK from one fat basta to another...
I honestly believe that the weight loss techniques that skinny people use don't work well for fat people, at least not while we are fat. Once we get closer to their weight... maybe.
I think that with just walking a lot, you could lose 35 pounds in a year, but of course that's too slow, so you need to diet.
For me, if I wanted to lose 35 pounds in three months, something I've done many times.... and need to do again right now... haha... I cut carbs out entirely, or really really low anyway, but I eat a lot. I still lose weight at least heading toward 250-255 while eating a lot without carbs. I just eat a lot of meat. And I walk a lot. I try to walk 1-2 hours a day ED.
Being fat, I lost about 35 pounds last year with just the walking, not doing any diet. And I mean no diet, I kept eating at McDonalds, for example. But I was also very farking fat. This year I'm going to top it by adding in low carb at some point, just need to save up the money because all meat is expensive. And it's time consuming because you have to cook, which I hate.
I'm lucky though, my metabolism seems to work fine with all meat. I don't experience the extreme slow downs that some people talk about. I've researched this some and certain people definitely react radically differently when they do this. Which I think leads to such different advice on the internet. As long as I eat a lot of meat and fat, and some cheese I'm good.
In general though, I suspect a lot of fat people react better to the all meat than skinny people. In fact, I suspect that it's why a lot of us are fat to start with, because our body doesn't really react well to high carbs. It doesn't know what to do with them so it just stores them. We are closer to our hunter gatherer ancestors than the skinny people. Our ancestors lived on all meat diets. If you look at Arctic peoples, they live almost entirely off meat, getting their vitamins from whale blubber, caribou and walrus liver, and the occasional berry. We are like them. Bread isn't in our DNA.
Anyway this probably sounds totally nuts so take it for what it's worth. If all meat is too extreme, try the 7 day carb diet, where you eat meat on the 7th day.
