    Uhh... I think nearly everyone pointed that out. And since the question wasn't, what can I do to have a healthy lifestyle? The people who didn't were just answering the OPs question.

    I foist off almost all fish/seafood off on the other kids (returning it at the start of lunch) or give it to one of my JTEs who is a bottomless pit. He appreciates it, I think. Then just don't eat all the rice. Easy way to cut 200-300 calories off the meal by not eating more than half the rice (especially when the lunch lady gives you enough for 2-3 people because your 'special' or only come around once every 2-3 weeks or whatever.)

    I was really up on turning myself around when I came to Japan for JET. I had been lifting weights and lost 30lbs in the 7 months before. Then I lost it all and became a sedentary blob. But 20 lbs or so back on. Felt like crap. Started biking to school (its pretty close) and getting some other excercise. Now if don't head out to get some exercise I get really sleepy around 4 PM or so. Walk around for a while before dinner/actually exercise, feel much better.

    Fair enough, but OP is fishing for answers to the wrong question.

    I've spent my entire life looking for answers to the wrong question.

    The lounge is the place for harsh words and call-outs, generally. This section is a little... gentler.

    That said, I don't disagree with much of what you're saying.

    Yeah, I think so long as the comments aren't overly harsh or mean-spirited, they're okay. I wouldn't consider Starfish's comment to be too bad according to those criteria.

    Re-reading my own comment even I think it's a bit harsh. I'm not normally so abrasive.

    Honestly I wish the best for OP, but believe they're barking up the wrong tree with this blame-the-BoE thing.

    I have to point out that based on my research and personal experience as a bodybuilder, eating at night DOES NOT make a difference. Regardless to whether you eat 3000 calories in the morning or at night, the extra calories will get stored as fat either way. Metabolism has no say in the matter.
    I realize that it' s a practical strategy for many people but that's only because it generally reduces their calorie intake. Timing doesn't matter.

    After rereading my post, I'm amazed that anyone understood it. I really need to stop posting when I'm in a rush, but I digress.

    Out of context your posts could be seen to be a tad harsh, but within the context of this thread I don't think they're too bad. Sometimes it helps when you're frank with people, even if your comments take a while to sink in.

    I still sympathize with Interioraround and I know how she feels, but her solution was not going to result in the outcomes she wanted.

    You're a bodybuilder, in peak physical condition. Eat what you want, when you want-- you're going to burn it off during your next workout anyway, so your personal experience is not going to yield the same results as someone who is sedentary.

    And yes, "metabolism slowing down at night" is not literally true, as it is a gross oversimplification of a much more complicated topic (ketosis). The end result is the same but for different reasons, which is why that's been a commonly-held belief for so long.

    The case of someone that's sedentary simplifies it, really. Eat less than you put out. Time is of little relation when simple math is such a large part of the issue.
