Actually it's a fact that you can lose weight by only eating healthy, it's a slow process without exercising, but it works. So if you stop working out and eat healthy you won't gain weight back, you can even eat junk food, but only small portions of them, and you'll still have that toned up look

I had the lap-band surgery in May 2008 and have lost 315lbs. I paid $16,000 in cash and it was worth every cent. I would do it over in a heart beat. My surgeon did say the same thing you did, that the bigger you are the more weight you can lose, but only up to a point. I believe that was 300lbs. He also said the Men tend to lose more weight and at a faster rate then women. However, you didn't list your BMI (or high and weight) so you may not qualify. At 334, you probably do, since you have to be pretty tall not to. However every surgeon I have ever ready about requires you to have a BMI of over 40, or 35 with a weight related medical issue (like high blood pressure). If you qualify, and you want weight loss surgery, then I recommend the lap-band over any of the other bariatric surgeries. The reason is simple, only the lap-band is adjustable and reversible. If you have issues with gastric bypass, your SOL. One thing you must understand before you do any kind of weight loss surgery. It isn't a quick fix. Three months isn’t a lot of time, so I doubt you will lose 50lbs in that short a time. I have heard that the average is 2 lbs a week or only 24 lbs. Additionally, for the Lap-Band, you don’t even “adjust” it (make the hole you food goes threw smaller or larger) for several weeks after surgery. I lost 20 lbs before the surgery giving up all soda, but I only lost 5 lbs the first 3 weeks. The band is a motivational tool, not a quick fix. However, think of it this way, isn't it better to start now, then wait any longer? I would suggest you look at http://www.obesityhelp.com/. It is free, and it covers topics like these, including we Pros and Cons of weight loss surgery, which insurance companies routinely cover surgery, and where to find surgeon. I found that website invaluable.

Trying to exercise without the diet is just a heartbreaker really because you'll be working really hard and not seeing the results you should. If you're going to eat loads of stuff you shouldn't then you'd have to exercise for a lot more than an hour a day to burn it off. We all love sweets and cakes and chocolate but if you want to be slim you had to put your foot down and restrict how much of that stuff you have. Try treating yourself to some of that stuff once or twice a week at the most, otherwise you're just banging your head against a wall

I've tried many diets and couldn't make anything work. Since having my first child, I've been carrying around an extra 30 pounds. This diet just made sense and showed me that everything I was doing before was wrong and a waste of my time. The plan was so refreshing and so simple to follow. I did everything plan said and lost 23 pounds in the first three weeks. I'm now starting the diet again to lose 7 more pounds. This plan has changed my life. Get started today!

Your muscles will reduce if you stop working them out. If you mantain your diet, you will most likely mantain your body fat rate unless you're a total couch potato that never moves.

I agree with Afa about balance in your eating plan. Staying away from refined sugar and "white" carbohydrates is also advisable. Stick to small servings of whole grains. Plenty of water or unsweetened tea. Lots of vegetables lightly steamed or raw. Salads with a very small amount of dressing. Fresh fruits. Protein...very important...lean meat. fish or poultry. Small amounts of fat such as peanut or almond butter, real butter, olive oil or almond oil are important because they carry flavor and are part of keeping you chemically balanced. Note I said small amounts. At your age you will need extra protein. You are still growing. Calcium is also important so, drink a low fat milk, if you like it, or take a calcium supplement. Small amounts of other dairy products are okay as well. Low fat cheese, plain yogurt and add your own fruit. The other fruited yogurts contain too much sugar. Good for you caring about your nutrition at such a young age. If you make it a habit you will thank yourself in years to come. It is perfectly okay to be a picky eater when it comes to your health. It seems like you have a good exercise program going. It sounds sensible and not overly aggressive, but enough to give your body what it needs.
