You aren't happy because I posted about something that actually works for me and many others who have been in the same situation as OP? Sour grapes man. At his weight, hard exercise isn't the solution, and may even be counter-productive.

The potato hack isn't some fad. Body builders and movie actors have been doing the potato hack for a long time to get in shape. Until he loses 50 pounds, a daily walk of 30-60 minutes should be his goal, until he feels comfortable doing light weight lifting a couple days a week.

Where did he suggest to OP to do hard exercise?

Reading his post he was asking if OP is or is not actually walking around daily like most of the people in that country do.

Weight lifting wouldn't kill the guy either, but that would only be if he wants to head there.

Quote:What Is The Potato Hack?

Here are the new Potato Hack guidelines courtesy of Vegetablepharm:

1. Plan on eating just potatoes for 3 to 5 days

2. Eat 2-5 pounds of potatoes each day

3. No other foods allowed (this includes butter, sour cream, cheese, and bacon bits!)

4. Salt, pepper, and vinegar allowed, but not encouraged

5. Drink when thirsty; coffee, tea, and water only

6. Heavy exercise is discouraged, light exercise and walking are encouraged

7. Take your normal medications, but dietary supplements will not be needed

Expected results from 3-5 days of the Potato Hack:

Fat loss of 3-5 pounds
Reduction in inflammation, joint pain
Reduction in digestive complaints
Increased insulin sensitivity, lower fasting blood glucose levels
Restoration of healthy intestinal bacteria
Continued weight loss upon resumption of normal diet

Even if this were to work as it says, it's a short term diet.

OP, from the best of my understanding, needs to get a few things in his life in order in order to fix his mental and physical states.
