    Since last year? He could have easily done that without the cross country trek. But whatever works for him and keeps him motivated.. I guess it would be kind of hard to just turn around and walk back home.

    Oh and, that news story is so informative. How often did he stop? Was he even dieting? Or did it just help that there wasn't a pantry a foot away from him the whole time?

    wtf

    how stupid can you be. I can appreciate his willingness to want to do this, but it is not an intelligent way to go about it. Walking that much, that consistantly at over 400lbs is asking for knee, back and ankle problems. He should have just ate right and started walking/running outside at a better pace.

    However, he did shed 100lbs so good for him!

    He's going to balloon right back up as soon as he starts walking.

    Losing only 100 lbs in 6 months while walking all day long does not seem to indicate a healthy diet.

    sounds like a great way to diet to me...

    "Vaught says he's gone through tens of pair of shoes while suffering everything from massive blisters to stress fractures."

    It's not a diet. It's just increasing his activity.

    There's no way he can continue to burn that many calories when he resumes a normal life, so he's just going to fatten up again.

    It's a nice idea and makes for a feel-good story, but it will end badly.



    And yeah, the side effects suck ass, too.
