You do realize he was a spammer... hope you didn't click on that link.I wasn't overweight by any means but I managed to lose 35lbs just to help backflip a 701 in my Superfreak back in the day. Went from 190 to 155 over a 6month period by just cutting down the intake. Water was my best friend. Whenever I was hungry, just drank more fluids. Might not have been the healthiest way to go about it but work for me. And most importantly it did make flatwater backflips possible on a budget lol.
