The reason its hard is because you're burning energy...you know, exercising!

exercise is hard when you are fat. when you are in shape is not that bad its actually fun. i mean jogging 4 miles as a warm up during football then weight lifting later and you pass out on the bed wake up like you sleep on god bed and you never felt you sleep better than that moment in your life.

then you need to explore what you like. for instance i hate running,but i still do it,but thats so i can weight lift and not be a jointless MM body builder who would lose to a 100lb kid in a fight. (talking about those guys who bench like 1000)

I've been reading sources that tell me that it is absolutely true that genetics can be attributed to weight; however the same sources tell me that the roles shouldn't play such a big role to make you morbidly obese.

I'm pretty sure that losing weight may be slighltly more difficult, but not to the point that somebody needs to let themselves go so far that they need to be on a moving cart.

Can somebody who's an expert in genetics clarify this?

www.weightwatchers.com/util/art/index_art.aspx?tabnum=1&art_id=20791&sc=801

Also, I've read EXTERMELY rare cases when genetics do impact somebody's weight.

I think the genetics-weight issue exists, but should not be used by lazy cows such as these to rationalize why they should stuff themselves with donuts and blame it on something else.

Genetics doesn't have **** to do with energy expended versus energy consumed. If you eat less calories than what you use, you WILL lose weight. Genetics can make someone better at storing and using fat (I believe), determine your metabolism, etc, but it definitely doesn't make it impossible to lose weight. To use an extreme example: Nobody in the concentration camps remained fat.

It's true that genetics results in people of varying builds. It's perfectly normal for someone to be built a bit stockier, but it is NOT normal to have mountains of flab and fat. The difference is that the genetically determined shape isn't unhealthy: Some people just won't be skinny like models. And just for the record, I'm no expert, but it makes literally no sense for genes to EVER select for a body that literally cannot move itself very far without the assistance of ******* fat scooters.

It's Korean but the basic gist is (There are numerous parts to this video, this is one) that the doctors monitored his behavior and he only consumes about 2000 calories per day. This man has an intellectual disability, so it is highly unlikely that he schemed this whole situation up to get attention or get free medical treatment. The experts deemed that this was something that they never saw before and said it might have something to do with genetics (maybe it's a go-to excuse for anything unexplainable) but, I think in rare cases, these conditions exist, but not to the extent where peopel should be using them as excuses.

This man is morbidly obese, and can't even move on his own.

I was going to mention that it's probably possible for a small number of people to "lose" the genetic lottery and wind up with a bad set of genes, but didn't for the sake of brevity. (In the same sense that some people also get genes that give them deformities, or even crippling disease. One example that comes to mind is the guy who didn't stop growing.

You're absolutely right that these genetic "malfunctions" do happen and can be the sole reason for obesity. Also, I feel really bad for the guy in your source because he just looks like he's suffering so much.

I totally agree. I feel bad for people such as these, and I want to let people know that it is a possibility that things like this happen, but at the same time it angers me so much that lazy people just use it as an excuse to get on their scooters and pretend they have a crippling disability.

Don't get me wrong, it appears like you think I'm actually cheering on this cows to rationalize why they should drive around in fat scooters.

I'm just curious how extreme rare genetic disorders are (since I did read that it did exist, again extremely rare) that actually contributes to somebody extremely obese.

I did remember there was one case in Korea when genetics did in fact play a role in somebody's weight (again, extremely rare) I'll try to find the source.

What actually happened was that a physiologist chimed in and told him he was wrong because some people do need food to keep depression off.

Making up an ending is lame.

from my experience i lacked motivation to lose weight. and the thing that motivated me was this annoying fat guy i know. the ****** lost around 40 pounds in like a month and it really pissed me off that he can lose weight and i can't. so i've been dieting for 2 weeks now and lost around 15 pounds. i need to lose like 100 more

bitch in 2 weeks you lost 15lbs, if this was slavery you would regret losing 15lbs because then you would be starving.
IT doesn't matter that the other ****** lost 40lbs in a month, ***** probably starved the **** out of himself and would most likely go on a binge and regain it all back.

The only person to motivate you, is you and no one else. Because by the end of the day, you're the only person that matters

All I can say is losing weight is difficult. Exercise is hard. Don't fight over this, guys.

All the motivation I can give the guy is being thin is better than being fat (unless your doctor says so lol).

Just keep in mind that you really need to make these changes permanent. If you just diet, lose weight, and then go back to eating the same way you'll just gain the weight back.

Best weight loss regimen ever, right diet and right exercise. Go to a doctor if you have health problems that may affect your health. Other than that, enjoy and be patient! Also, never deprive yourself, think portion control instead and go healthy every time.

Then she's saying it's not true, that it's impossible for some. And that's nothing to do with previous laziness? I mean if you wait too long with exercising it's not genetics if it doesn't work, you're just too lazy

"It's really hard to exercise"
No it really ******* isn't... you exercise whenever you move/walk. I used to be ******* huge! I don't mind telling you that I was 15 stone (x14 for lbs) and after almost 4 years I am now 9 and 1/2 stone and still losing the weight. No diet was involved, I still ate what I wanted to eat I just ate slower, which filled me up quicker and as for exercise I'd walk a bit further to the bus stop than usual, got a job that has me on my feet so more exercise there. Point being, that losing weight isn't as hard as people make out, and diets are the biggest con in history.

...but you have motivation
if you're motivated, you will be more likely to do something, and many overweight people dont have the motivation to do a good, honest workout, or eat something healthy for a change. as a Cross country runner, it's ******* hard to jump right into a 2 mile run after being off season for a long time, but after about a month i'm runing about 5 a day plus 500m tanking breaks in between to do 20 pushups. it's not hard to exersice when your motivated, but when your comfortable and have no real feeling of urgency or need, you dont want to exercise. kudos to you for loosing weight

Haha! Motivation! No, as I stated my idea of exercise is to walk an extra few steps, no gym membership, no running (I'd of given myself 2 black eyes if I'd done that). As for eating "healthy" it's ********, I never cut out cake/chocolate/fried food, if I wanted it I'd have it, but I will admit I asked myself each time if I wanted it out of hunger or boredom, that said there's days where I've binged on food, but I don't feel guilty cause it doesn't happen often. I do miss my boobs though... damn.

The real problem lies in the fact that people want immediate results when they try to lose weight, it doesn't happen overnight, it took me about 3 years to shift 5 stone, slow going but I've kept the weight off.

"Exercise is hard"

Nothing worth doing is easy. Yes it's hard, but you know what? I've lost 10 pounds because the people around me are being supportive. Hell, I've been running everyday for several months and just now am I beginning to lose weight. Complete strangers have come up to me and told me they've seen me out there running everyday and that it inspired them to do the same. I've seen some people you would call Land Whales out there walking everyday as well. They're seemingly making an effort to TRY.


Humans are naturally competitive. One of the many reason I support the Free Market system. But something similar can be used here. Get a friend to workout with you. You'll want to compete to beat them and they'll do the same. Almost everyone I know weighs less than 200 pounds and is in quite decent shape whereas I'm now at 210 and dropping. If you don't have friends. An MP3 player will also suffice.

I am just beginning to run, i am starting to run 3-4 days a week in between work. I just started getting shin splints and am trying to ice it down and run through it.

It really took you a few months to see the actual weight loss? and did you work on upper body as well?

I was experimenting with diets to find one that worked for me. I found one and now the weight is falling off. The first few weeks are always the hardest. After that it becomes habit and your body adjusts. I am going to start working on upper body a bit more when I lose some more weight.

If you are really heavy, speed walking is recommended. Interval running may have less shin splints and burn more calories as well due to heart rate fluxuation. Good luck.

He's right about anyone being able to do it, but it's different for every person and some people don't realize that. I would watch skinny people in high school guzzle down sodas, eat nothing but junk, and play video games endlessly, and I had to practically starve myself AND exercise just to get to the point where I looked average.
