Marcelo - BRAVO for your dieting success, but you have to mix it up or you will become bored.
Just eat lean proteins and what do you do to work-out?

You have to excersize every day for an hour - at least one hour!
Are you going to the gym to work out for an hour?

Do you ride a bike?

Do you take a run or walk for an hour?

All those things will help you to lose more weight.

God bless you and your family.

I’m in the gym six days a week. And my workout is longer than an hour, mixing with hypertrophic cardio and continue with the diet.
I have no bike, but my wife is spinning at the gym.
My race is on the treadmill, 30 minutes alternating between walking and running and that after training.
My current weight is 240.30 (109.00)

Hug and thanks for the help!
