I'm pretty much in the same boat as you, though i've not really been above 165. I;ve always been in relatively good shape, but the last few years i kinda let myself get a little wobbly I've only recently (the past 12 months or so) looked at changing my diet from pretty much being able to eat anything, to eating healthy. I think my metabolism slowed down somewhere during my lay off period!

So what would you suggest? Quit the weights, plyos and resistance training and do intense cardio for a couple of months? Maybe a little core exercise here and there but little to no lifting etc?
