You know, I read this thread and I only have one thing to say to whoever made this message:
"""You eat supper then sit on the coach and fall asleep?
Let me guess, you recently graduated college and got a full time job?
Welcome to the rest of your life...""""
I'm actually a graduate student in aerospace engineering. I am going to be studying turbulent flow phenomena. Four days a week I work out, two of which I dedicate to sled pulling and pushing. Soon, if things work out, I will also have a part time job as a calibrations technician in addition to my grad school work. So that means im working all the time, probably more than 60 hours a week.
On top of that, unfortunately, I have a serious medical condition which requires me to take medications with adverse side effects. Have you ever hear of Seroquel? Look it up. It fundamentally changes how the body metabolizes fat. I'm lucky, I only gained about 15 lbs on it. I also just got off another medication which raises prolactin levels, also causing weight gain (and potential tumors on the pituitary gland). People on other forums report as much as 50lbs in a MONTH with no change in diet.
So yeah, I acknowledge my diet isn't perfect - I absolutely love food. I am making a effort one day at a time to change my habits. I'm even following one of the articles on this forum.
And you know what. Next time you speak maybe you should think before you come off as an arrogant clueless fool.
