    You're not getting enough nutrients. Your diet should consist mostly of fresh vegetables and fruit with plenty of protein in the form of meat.

    What kind of cardio are you doing? High intensity interval training is much better for weight loss.

    Turkey Slider
    Hot Dogs
    Pumpkin Pie

    You can work out until the cows come home but that kind of diet won't get you far in life...

    Well sounds like everything he eats passes right on thru. Have some veg that isn't cooked to death. Enjoy some protein. If the color isn't in nature, don't eat it.

    So what are your goals? 200, 190 or less. (Bulk up or slim down?)

    First set your goals.
    Then evaluate how to reach them. Lift, cardio and the all important diet.

    Your body doesn't need just food, it needs food to help you achieve your goals. Proteins, vegetables and etc...

    Track your progress and dedicate the time:
    Running start a runners long, challenge yourself to bring down your time in the mile. Plus mix it up: Spin bike, swim, run, elliptical.

    On lifting figure out your plan and work it.

    I use the myfitnesspal app and tracked everything for almost five months. You'll soon learn how potato skins at Chili's equal an entire day's worth of calories. And that salsa, greek yogurt and oatmeal are in my opinion awesome.

    20 weeks since I began and slowly dropped 12 pounds, but not in a straight line. Good luck and plan for your success.

    Lots of hidden calories in those foods. Especially the pumpkin pie and Gumbo (I'm from Louisiana). Check out the BodyBuilding.Com forum for some great weight loss tips.

    I'd take your "lunch" to "school" and stick to the kind of diet you want to reduce your weight.... then you will certainly be on your way to reaching some real goals.
