To begin, I would describe myself as all three of the things in the title of this post. In the past I’ve struggled with weight and food cravings.

I've never been able to get rid of the gut, which is now in my sights thanks to low carb. And it all happened in just 3 months.
I'm not a fitness or health professional. Growing up, I weighed 270lb at my maximum when I was 13 years old. I implemented a slightly better diet with workouts and dropped to 195lb during high school. That is my lowest weight. I've come to realize that my ideal weight is somewhere around 190lb. I'm 6'0" with a larger build.
