I maintain my undergrad weight pretty well and easily, despite having a rather low metabolic rate, with a basal temperature as low as 35C = 95F and averaging 36C = 97F. My father and his father were obese and Type II diabetic, and I do not need that.
There is nothing like sustained aerobic exercise, coupled with a diet which virtually eliminates junk food, particularly soft drinks, doughnuts, and refined sugar and flour. I get most of my protein from plant sources. I also choose to abstain from alcoholic beverages, with the added benefit of avoiding those calories.
