I'm new. I won't bore you right now with a long profile of who I am, but I really do need some help. I'm 32, 6ft5 and 13 weeks ago, weighing just shy of 28stn with a 50% BMI I've lost 72lbs, and I'm averaging 6-7lbs a week. I now weight 22st5lb.
it may sound paradoxical, asking for help because I feel great but every forum / research I have found describes my kind of weightloss as bad for me / harmful. I have cut out all bad foods, booze and caffeine, don't smoke and haven't adhered to any formal diet plans / excercise regimes. I now eat 3 healthy meals a day (with carefully selected snacks in between - jelly, low fat yogurt, hot choc etc) and excercise for 90 minutes per session, twice daily having joined the cheapest gym I could find (local authority), don't follow any formal plans, I've just found what feels right for me and I stick to it, increasing the intensity little by little.
i feel great, I suffer zero side effects from the vast scaremongering online about such large consistent weightloss. So far, I don't seem to have excess skin, I don't feel under nourished (I do get hungry, who wouldn't but I don't feel malnourished) my heart, lungs and whole body feels stronger and stronger every single day, I'm more regular, skin feels amazing, and I'm starting to get shape and definition. I don't feel like I'm over reaching, of course I get worn out with excercise but I sleep brilliantly, wake with energy and really feel like how I imagine a new born child must feel - I'm excited about tomorrow everyday.
I know this may not be normal, but it's working for me. So, what's wrong? Is what I am doing harmful and if so why? Am I putting myself at risk and if so, in what way? Is my strict self evolved diet and fitness plan in some way detrimental to my health and well being long term? HELP - I can't find any resource online at all where someone has consistently lost my kind of weight which gets reported in a positive way. I feel good, but social media / specialist publications out there online say I'm doing something adverse. What???
please please help me and give me some adadvice thanks
