Are you someone who has really let themselves go?

It happens so gradually we often don’t notice until we get some kind of “rude awakening”.

This rude awakening might come in the form of holiday photos of ourselves in a bikini or shorts. We knew that we had put on a little extra weight but the pictures made us feel embarrassed and ashamed

Another form of rude awakening might come in the form of a physical illness such as diabetes or high blood pressure. The Doctor tells us we simply have to lose the weight or our lives will be cut short…

Perhaps you go through a relationship break up and your ex tells you what they really think about your sex appeal.

Maybe they start seeing a new slim partner…



Channel “obesity wake up calls” into “obesity help!”

These kinds of obesity wake up calls make us feel shocked, sometimes scared, but they often force us to take action.This might lead to exploring some of the different types of diet or exercise plans that are available.

If we are serial weight loss failures then we might look at more drastic fat loss measures. We might find ourselves rationalizing stomach stapling or different types of pharmaceutical fat loss drugs.

In fact, if you search Google for “obesity help” then most of the search engine results will contain references to medical procedures…


The best type of obesity help comes from within

Instead of blaming others for your situation, or looking for options that do not involve any discipline or self-control, realize that you can do this on your own. It is the only real way to create positive lasting change.

Take responsibility, take control…

Fortunately positive change can happen so quickly, it is really easy to lose weight in the beginning.

The fatter you are, the quicker the pounds fall off when you change your attitude.

It might seem hard to believe, but it is way easier going from 280 pounds to 230 pounds, than 230 to 210… This is where good habits and a stronger “discipline muscle” keeps you going.

I experience much skepticism when I see countless before/after weight loss photos. Surely the worst part is that there just shouldn’t be any at all!!

Why is it that we’re all letting ourselves get so overweight? How come we can’t manage our bodies and health constantly? And why is there such a huge niche market for “quick fixes” which generally don’t work without real effort on behalf of the person using them?


The idea of why are there any before and after pictures at all is profound…

If we were all responsible and in control of our lives no one would ever get obese. I know that it seems idealistic, but why not aim for ideal?

Obesity solution

Regardless of where you are now, be it normal, overweight, obese, or even morbidly obese, the action steps are the same.

Constantly monitor your measurements.

You check your hair a few times a day, you check your watch many times more. This is in order to monitor and to keeps things in line and on track.

Why do people step on the weigh scales and suddenly get a nasty shock? They suddenly realize that they are terribly overweight. Make a commitment to monitor and record your weight at least 2 or 3 times a week.

Constantly substitute unhealthy food for healthy food.

This doesn’t mean buying the “diet” ready-made microwave meal instead of the standard one. Nor does it mean buying diet soft drinks instead of the full sugar ones.

These steps do not work. If they did, then obesity rates would not be rising any more.

... Substitute processed food for whole food.

… Fast food for fruit and vegetables.

It is simple but takes a little effort on your part.

Reduce the amount of white carbohydrates in your diet.

… Stop adding sugar.

… Swap rice, bread and potatoes for beans or fruit.

… Get more active.

… Swap couch potato activities for real activities.

… Walk to the store, up the stairs, across town etc.

There are more points that could be added to this list, but these are some of the most important ones, and the most simple. You do not need a high IQ or to read a big diet book to “get this”.

Keep things simple.

There are no better obesity solutions than the “old-fashioned” ones. The best idea is to not let it happen in the first place by regular monitoring. The next solution is to eat healthier food and become more active. It really is that simple.

You can get obesity help for yourself by following weight loss hints and tips for fat loss… But as an addition to the fundamentals of a healthy lifestyle.

    All good common sense. Breaking it down nicely. It is true that the biggest gains come at the beginning when we get ourselves on track.

    I’m always amused by your sense of humor Jason – people take themselves WAY too seriously, and it’s great to have someone use the very basic held beliefs for jokes to remind us to take a step back. As Ali said: “Float like a butterfly”… If we spend too much time grounding ourselves, we’ll never manage to survive the bull of an opponent that George Foreman was to Ali.

      Your comment makes me happy 🙂 It is funny how people get all worked up about small/ego related stuff and ignore the real issues in the World. Whether a gay person marries? Outrage! Whether children are starving? “Oh well that is life”
      Really dumb…
