You really shouldn't be swinging from like, fat ass to competitive body building. Your health (physical and mental) is an important thing and the key to being healthy is stability. If you decide you want to get in shape, or at least get 'not-fat', the solution shouldn't be exercise 4 hours a day, and eating twigs for every meal becoming your entire life because it's unsustainable. The only thing worse than going through a terrible thing in life or gaining a bunch of weight is knowing what it's like to be fit, torturing yourself to get there, and then three years later and you look in the mirror and you're worse than you are before.
And I don't mean this as a critique of Rick in particular because I don't know him and you don't 'dress people down' that way but I've just seen a lot of people that tie their happiness to an either unachieveable or unsustainable goal and they live miserably being constantly reminded they didn't accomplish it or they're torturing themselves trying to get there and not keep it.
