PLEASE NOTE – THIS IS STILL IN DRAFT BUT I WANTED TO GET IT OUT THERE
I’ve been overweight since around the age of 12, which was approximately 1983 (that is also around the time when the low-fat craze seems to have gotten into full-swing).
In my early twenties, while still in the Navy, I weighed right about 200 lbs. I’m 5’10” and was always considered overweight, based on the Navy’s weight standards. After leaving the service I steadily gained weight while in college, where I ate McDonalds and other fast foods daily. For the past 15+ years I’ve weighed approximately 250 to 255 pounds, except when I’ve gone on various diets, where I temporarily shed somewhere between 10 and 20 pounds through various measures.
So that was the history/background for what I’m about to write next, so you’ll have the proper context:
I honestly think I’ve found the cure for obesity.
