I am going to give you some tough love here please don't take it personally. The reason you gained the weight right back is because you had been doing something that was unsustainable in taking the oxy elite while not changing a single habit. The idea that weight loss or gain is genetic is a great big huge giant hairy bull **** excuse. Weight loss is quite simple eat less than necessary to sustain you current body weight. You do that I don't care what genetics you have you WILL lose weight.

Every bit of that is additional calories that your not counting. Do this for a week and you will see this low amount of calories you believed you ate but it would not be even remotely correct.
The only way to control your hunger is to eat 4-5 small meals a day to keep your blood sugars consistent. If you keep them consistent you keep your metabolism consistent in the process. That in a nut shell is the key to losing weight along with keeping the calories in below calories burned.
To be honest that diet right there for a day is horrendous. Did you eat breakfast? If not why not? Breakfast is truly the most important meal of the day. It helps get your metabolism fired up and running for the day. Ever notice that when you do eat breakfast your usually hungry by mid morning? That is the result of your metabolism working. That is why you should eat 4-5 small meals a day to keep that metabolism fire burning.

If you do them all at once your body will freak out and you will start craving the garbage again. I would start by doing away with any and all white processed flour products you eat. Swapping it all out for whole grain/wheat though being careful to pay attention to what you buy all wheat products are not the same. If you have a smart phone get a free app called Fooducate and scan everything you buy at the store. Start to pay attention to what you are putting in your body keeping out as much of the garbage as possible and I promise very quickly you will feel much better than you do now. And finally your water intake is seriously lacking. You should probably be drinking at least a gallon of water a day for a man your size. Just uping your water intake, cutting out white flour, and charting your food intake would be a great first step. Also if your drinking soda cut it out as much as possible its empty worthless calories.
