Well, i personally sit eating shit all day, sat on the my ass...
And i'm underweight, so i'd say go for it!
Is very important around here
You eat like a bird. Eat more.
I recommend joining weight watchers if you want to make long term weight loss. Use their online points calculator to calculate all the calories you eat and stick to a weekly target. (eg save up or claw back calories over the week then a few pints or a curry at the weekend)
the only way to lose weight and keep it off is calorie control.
Eating with calorie control at the forefront of your mind will teach you what foods to avoid. (ie pizza, wet curries and beer)
Unrealistic diets should also be avoided, you won't find any mung beans to snack on when at a service station on the M1.
Nutrition is key to loosing weight of course, but one aspect that is sometimes not emphasised enough is just how much time you need to spend excersizing. Roughly speaking ....... loose 1kg by burning 7000 calories more than you intake.
For example, a 6 minute mile burns 950 - 1300 cals depending on body weight.
a 12 minute mile burns 470 - 690. So, your talking about a shit load of running to burn off 7000 calories.
I know mma is a dif type of work out, but its hard to judge the burn.
I'll write a proper post later but one quick thing to say is, when I'm losing everything is wicked, I feel better in training, it's no trouble to get up for a 6am run, food planning gets so easy I don't even think about it etc etc. It's when I hit a plateau that I get in real trouble.
Thats the reason I'm still bobbing around the 18st mark (after getting down from 23st) I just seem to plateau at this weight and it's absolutely f***ing demorilising. The gap between 245lbs and 220lbs is my nemisis.

Inchbyinch, just a quick bit of help...
Your weight will stabilise every 10lbs or so, as your body gets used to its new size...if you are losing too quickly it may do this quicker and for longer, as the body goes into starvation mode.
With time, the body will adjust again...and continue...
Also this can happen if you cut out a food group...and then the craving for that food group starts...
Your bodies are constantly replacing themselves, for example your blood is replaced in entirety every 30days...
So allow your body to adjust...re-assess what you are doing also to check for errors...then proceed on the road to lightness...
How so? What energy systems are not fuel up to use when you wake up?

After carrying out probably around 1000 hours of research and practice in respect to fat burning (including on myself dropping 14kg in 14 weeks), it'll be wrong of me to give my learnings away...but trust me, its all out there for you to find lol!
The very nature of your statement/question tells me that you haven't carried out any learnings into the energy systems of the body...and that should be your first start...
Ill read your book when it comes out don't worry. I'm always open to learning more. Do i think morning training is good for health, and state change yes. But for pure weight-loss no, i don't see the extra benefits. Mostly cause the hormonal change in the body. I hope i make my self clear, my English is not very. Its only my 5th language
Don't worry i know the systems in the body and the formulas to write them out.
