Was he 240 muscle or chub? Cuz im not gonna lie...im packin some pudge.
It's hard to tell with men, because the excess body fat in many overweight men is intra-abdominal, ie, beneath their abdominal muscles, so it's not visually obvious as "flab." But let's face it, if you're 5'10" and 240 lb, unless you look like Arnold Schwarzenegger (and he didn't), you're overweight.

Also, thank you for that link. That was honestly the most helpful piece of weight loss information i have gotten. You ask that question and you get answers along the lines of "it differs from person to person" or "it depends on your body type" and you dont get a straight forward "heres your calorie level, heres the micro-nutrient calorie %. So again thank you!
You're welcome. I hate the "everybody is different" meme. It belies the fact that, to a first approximation, exactly the opposite is true: our nutritional needs are similar.
Best of luck.
