Back to the topic; I'd also like to see some kind of proof that supports the whole "don't eat after 6 in the evening"-theory. I call bullshit on that one, myself.
Or how about a nonprofit organization? http://www.kids4research.org/kids/ba...al_studies.asp
If I described a plane figure with equal straight sides and four right angles as a square and you claimed it was a rectangle and then I defined a square as a rectangle with all equal sides, would you then claim I was an idiot for calling a square a square because it could also be described as a rectangle?

115kg is not fat for a person nearly 2meters tall.
Your body composition might not be ideal if you don't have an active lifestyle but that's a different matter with a different remedy.
Boxing as a 2meters athlete will be troublesome if for no other reason because you'll have a hard time finding sparring partners.
There's a lot of resources about proper eating so I'd rather not try to compact it in a post.
As a general rule, eat small portions, eat 4-5 times a day, don't go to bed feeling "full"
(best if you feel just slightly hungry or have a warm drink - no coffee or sodas)
- Lack of sleep messes with your appetite so get good rests.
- Haphazard eating hours mess with your metabolism, same as "hunger" diets.
Your body needs to feel "secure" that the next meal is coming so it doesn't try to store up for a bad day.
As omnivores we're quite adaptable which in some contexts works against us.
It's quite possible to be losing weight and still have fat in all the wrong places.
So regular meals, small portions, no heavy meals in the last 2-3 hrs before sleep, proper rest and a good training regime.
Weight will be redistributed, 115kg won't look like much at all for your height.
Scientific study: experimentation to demonstrate the truth or falseness of the hypothesis, and a conclusion that validates or modifies the hypothesis.
Sounds more fitting to me.
Seriously, I suggest the search function in this forum. there are gazillion weight loss thread and every single one is the same in one aspect: people will in the end fight and disagree in the same fashion that eventually got political and religious topics banned.
But since you asked:
Two interesting books:
I lost 23 kg with the second one. At 188 down from 110 kg to 87 in 3 months and keeping that weight for a year now. Anecdotal evidence or want to fight me over the results, I don't care. I'm just saying how it is. And you cut no vitamins, no minerals, no essential stuff - unless you consider sugar or flour products essential.

the best form of exercise if u are overweight and already have a low>non existant exercise regime, is swimming, it is non weight bearing, and it provides not only a general all over body workout, but is also good for the heart and getting the circulation moving, also, regulate food intake, get an appointment with your doctor and ask them to refer you to see a dietician, and they can help you sort out a diet plan that will work best for you, andlast but not least, ignore everybody in this thread that is telling you to go do pushups/running/cycling/cardio workouts and weight lifting etc, as these forms of exercise are likely gonna cause you more harm than good at this stage of things, u wanna start slow and small, build up bit by bit, and work towards harder forms pf exrcise, don't try and jump in at the deep end (no pun intended there lol), otherwise not only could u cause further health problems, but u will also loose motivation and quickly trail off with diet/exercise program with the amount of effort needed to maintain a program that involves all of those forms exercise.
trust me i know what you wanna do, and i know that it looks like a bit of n uphill battle but start small and it will come, just don't expect miracles over night, this sort of thing takes a large time investment, and a large amount of will power to do what is necessary to succeed.
(i used to be a 260KG/192CM guy that never left the house, so i know what i'm talking about in regards to loosing weight and all that shizzle).
DONT TOUCH: pastry or bread (or anything made of flour), sugar in any form (including sodas), processed foods, foods that contain nitrates like salami and other stuff.
DO: drink alot of watter, eat less than what u re used to ( around 2500-3000 calories per day), weight lift 3 days a week (starting strength program should do), 30 minutes of cardio 7 days a week (cardio = exercise that keeps your heart at double the normal rate eg if normal rate is 60 double is 120) that is 30 minutes of keeping your heart at double rate.
Do that for 6 months and you will enjoy those abs

All biological studies are scientific studies. All squares are rectangles. Not all scientific studies are biological studies. Not all rectangles are squares. I asked for a biological study or a square. He said I should have asked for a scientific study or rectangle. However, I did ask for a scientific study or rectangle in that I asked for a subset of the sort. That was the purpose of my analogy. While he is correct that I need a scientific study, he is incorrect that I do not need a biological study. That is, of course, unless the location of the sun to the horizon effects how our body produces energy. In which case I suppose I am looking for an astrological and biological study.
Thank you all for respondign to my post, I have been starting to go for jogging atleast, but I will also start swimming maybe 2-3 days week and take that up with biking.
Losing weight is easy... but it all depends on how you've lived... if you've been fat your whole life, then it's hard to muster up enough motivation to constantly hit the gym... I suggest starting out slow in that case, but if you've been skinny before, that should be enough motivation to be skinny again because you know how much better of a life style it is... if you push yourself too hard at first, you'll lose all your motivation because you won't get results instantly, but you're still putting in hard work so it feels like you're not getting anywhere, but remember you see yourself every day so the results won't pop out at you like it would if someone hasn't seen you in a while. I got fat at one point and went to the gym to lose the weight and ended up falling in love with bodybuilding... since I was already fat, I didn't have to go through a bulking phase so I got big instantly.
Biggest tip is moderation... you can eat fast food if you want... but that doesn't mean get it twice a week... that means once a month you can treat yourself... that's where people have the biggest struggle... and when you go out to eat, don't get meals... it's the sugar in the soda and all the carbs from the fries that get people fat... a burger alone won't kill you. That's all up to you though, I like to treat myself and by treat I mean treat... not go to burger king and get 3 whopper... just one... and make sure you eat your food slow... the most you have to chew, the quicker you'll get full , which is why people can chew gum and trick their mind into thinking they're full.
If you ever hit that wall where you think you have to give up, remember why you started and tell yourself that if you quit, that's just the person you are... a quitter... never able to achieve your goals... don't be a quitter and never give up.

I don't know where the OP is from, but at least in the UK there's a handful of diet programs available. Weight Watchers and Slimming World come to mind. If you're not too tight on cash, why not give something like this a go? I did WW last year and it gave me quite a good base to work with. They've got a huge recipe library full of amazing low calorie dishes and the different trackers are a brilliant motivation boost.
+ there's a ton of free phone apps for tracking your exercise and calorie intake as well, such as Noom (afaik only for Android atm) and MyFitnessPal.
eat healthier food and exercise. I know people say that you don't need to exercise, but I'm assuming you want to lose weight AND be healthier and fitter.
