The problem is the way most people attempt to lose weight. Most people, upon realizing that they have a weight problem, decide to radically upheave their diet and start working out five days a week. This is, of course, completely unsustainable. If this lasts even a week, the person losing the weight starts desperately craving fattier food because their body believes they are starving. But they tell themselves, "No! I must perservere! I'm on a diet!" Fast forward a week later, they're right back where they're started.

I've lost a visible amount of weight, but it's been a slow process that's still in the works a year after "Operation Get Sexy" even commenced. The key to sustained weight loss is to TAKE THINGS SLOW. Focus on forming healthy habits rather than a completely unsustainable plan of action. The SINGLE most important aspect of a diet and exercise plan is that you'll DO IT. So, if you're a fat neckbeard and you're looking for a change, try your weight loss in a series of steps.

1.) For the next three weeks, only drink water, tea, or coffee with little cream or sugar. Cut out soda entirely. Exercise once a week.

Once you're in the habit of number 1, move on to the next step.

2.) For the next three weeks, up your exercise to twice a week and eliminate snack food from your diet, i.e. potato chips, cheetos, etc.

I'm not going to write out a bunch of steps for you, but the goal is that eventually you'll be working out five times a week (ideally a resistance workout encompassing at least two of these workouts) and eating a diet of whole grains, lean protein, healthy unsaturated fats and whole fruits and vegetables.

But, for the love of god, TAKE IT SLOW.

I'm still not where I'd like to be, but I know for certain that I'll never return to my former weight. Yes, my weight still fluctuates, and I indulge the occasional ice cream or fast food, but they're not habits. Work WITH your body, not against it.

Here's some tips for bigger people that want to lose weight but find it hard to exercise-

Start off small, any exercise counts.
Get into routine, tell yourself your day isn't complete until you've gone for a walk.
Manage your calorie intake and fat intake, you'll notice the difference in your energy levels if you eat cleaner.

My friend's mom underwent some surgery of some kind that they messed up and screwed up her spine and killed her metabolism. I'm honestly surprised she was able to maintain a size small enough for her wheelchair. She was paralyzed, so no, she couldn't lose weight, and her legs were tiny in comparison to the rest of her due to atrophy.
But I honestly think paralysis is the only legitimate excuse kthxbai.

All the guy said was that it's always possible. (Know what else is possible? Becoming an astronaut, winning an Olympic gold medal, winning the lottery, etc.)

Being paralyzed with a screwed up metabolism absolutely makes it extremely difficult to lose weight, but not impossible. (Granted, if I were to become a paraplegic, I would probably end up weighing in around 500 pounds.)

Genetics CAN actually play a huge part in how big you are. I have a friend who is so dedicated to dieting, and does like 6 hours of cardio a day and still struggles to lose the smallest amount of weight, and shes a big girl. She requires medication to help speed up her metabolism.

However i believe a lot of people do use genetics simply as an excuse for bad habits.

Nutrition student here, let me drop the facts
In the case of a healthy human being, your energy expenditure can be calculated with a simple formula based on age, sex, weight and activity level. There can be about a 5% difference from your actual expenditure based on bodyfat % and sometimes genetics. That's 5%, which will never make you fat, you just have to eat 2 slices of bread less each day.
When someone has hypothyroidism, their expenditure is lowered by maximum 20%, which is a reasonable amount, but still no excuse to be morbidly obese. This being said, hypothyroidism can be treated with medication or often with a simple iodine supplement. About 5% of the population has hypothyroidism.
The only case in which someone's weight is out of their control, is in the case of leptin deficiency. People with this disorder have an unsatisfiable hunger and a significantly lowered metabolism. There are less than a 100 people on this planet diagnosed with this disorder.

No, it's not genetic, however there are a host of problems, hormonal, physical, and mental, that can effectively keep a person fat.

And while yes, everyone CAN lose weight, not everyone can be skinny. I can lose about ten pounds before I stop losing. In fact in highschool I worked one on one with the PE teacher. I ate nothing but chicken and veggies, and fruit, no more than 1900 calories a day, and worked out for one hour every day. Kick boxing, running, lifting, etc. But I did not lose more than 10 pounds.

Even now, I stay fit and active, keep to 1900 calories a day, and nothing. But when I take birth control pills I can lose 20 pounds in a month. So I dunno what's going on there.

So I guess my point is maybe if we stopped treating fat people like **** they'd stop treating THEMSELVES like **** and take better care of their bodies. And if they want to be fat then why not? It's not hurting you any. I mean, sure you may not find it attractive but nobody's telling you that you have to **** them.

While I mostly agree with you. The original video which this is from points out that overweight people cost a lot of time and money in the health industry. And yes some people just are overweight but there's practically no one who can't do anything about being obese(except when caused by serious health issues of course)
