Hey so I'm a 21 year old guy, weighing in at 350 pounds at 6' 1". I don't really exercise or work out, so I guess my routine is basically sedentary. Not gonna lie, my diet consists of either burgers or pizza or cookie dough haha. To be honest though, I feel pretty comfortable and don't feel the need to lose weight. But how long can I keep this up. I mean, my family doesn't have a history of diabetes or anything so I should be fine right?

Hi JimmyXXXXL ,

Thanks for posting on the forum, its a great way of meeting other people with experience of health issues who often have a wealth of information and advice.

Diet and exercise is often key to a general sense of well being alongside all the physical benefits to living a healthier lifestyle. Unfortunately there can often be a lot of confusion surrounding the information out there and finding a good source is key, have a look at some of our blogs on losing weight here which may help you http://www.talkhealthpartnership.com/ta ... eight.php/. also here http://www.talkhealthpartnership.com/ta ... s/diets.ph

Also it may be worth signing up here for our wellbeing support programme too, where you will receive lots of bite sized information over a 19 week period, you can click here for more information; http://www.talkhealthpartnership.com/psp/wellbeing.php

Hope this helps,

Regards,

That is the thing, you must do it for you. Its good to lose weight. You are too heavy for your height. Even if you were completely muscly and weight 350lbs that is still a problem. You have to eat healthy more often and help your heart. Too many fats is not good. Fats can make a person feel more tired when doing something physical. Fats can also destroy good sleeping habits. Its because the body has to digest more and the brain has more to work on in controlling the digestive system. You need to eat more healthy more often. Perhaps you could try vegetarian options to foods you love. Good luck.
