Male Weight Loss CandidateI want to warn you that what you are about to read is very direct and you may not feel better after reading it. This article is intended to get in your face. It is not intended to hurt your feelings, but to wake you up. Face it, you are your habits. You create yourself by what you do all day, every day. Your habits have earned you a big fat sweating belly. Carrying around a big flabby gut is only the lesser of two problems. The bigger problem is in your head. Don’t you just want to yell “why am I so f***ing fat? Can’t you just hear that question as you suffer through these things:

  • Looking in the mirror
  • Lack of energy. Even hard to get off the couch
  • You hand is already in the bag grabbing another handful of chips
  • Failing to get a date with any woman
  • Your wife not wanting to have sex again
  • Buying yet another larger size of pants than last month
  • Wearing your shirt over your pants because you have to

Regarding weight loss, I believe that the hell that the male goes through is self-imposed. The fact is that it isn’t really your fault. It is about the high quality of life that you are living. You are living better than anyone has ever lived in history and you are getting your needs met like never before. Even though you may not feel very satisfied, the paradox of the situation, is that it is because you have become accustomed to being satisfied, is the reason why you are unsatisfied. If that doesn’t make sense to you, here are five things that you are asking into your live (from which you get a lot of satisfaction), yet they all lead to our obesity.

  1. Video - this may seem strange to you, but look at all of the video in your life – TV, cable, DVD, video games, You Tube, sports,  movie theaters, iPhone video,  all other internet video. When you are watching videos of any kind, you are sitting and not burning many calories. Period. It is like you are a car idling in neutral…you are not using much gas. We love to watch things, but these things are costing us our waistline. Believe it.
  2. Less Active – beyond video you just do not move around much at all. You do “thinking work” for a living and although thinking burns calories, you aren’t exactly a lumberjack either. Dancing used to be something that many many people did for entertainment. When was the last time that you danced?
  3. Easy Food - I do not only mean fast food, but the fact is that food is immediately available in an edible form . 40 years ago, many types of food that people kept in their house, had to be prepared before being eaten. It wasn’t so easy back then to grab Doritos or cheese sticks.  But look at grocery store shelves now, there is ready-to-eat food in every aisle. You can now go to your kitchen cabinet right now and in a half a minute be eating anything you want. Also this food tends to be empty calories
  4. Wealth - we may be in the “great recession” now, but you would not know it if you looked around. People hanging out at Starbucks,  you can buy anything you want 24 hours a day on the internet, 1,000′s of porno sites on the internet, credit cards are still easy to obtain. You may not want to believe this, but you are living high on the hog. Still don’t believe me? Look at the pictures of the starving, emaciated faces of the people during the Great Depression….there were not many fat ones.
  5. Denial – human beings are the most social animal on the earth. You look around at other people  and see what others are doing to ensure that you are doing the right things. Just because other people are over-consuming, it does not mean that you should. Look first, but think second. You should not do what other people do, just because you want to be accepted.

You may not be feeling any better after reading all of this. My intention is not to make you feel any worse. My intention is for you to start gathering your wits, and realize that you are making decisions that are costing you your well-being. We as a society asked for all of the above things. Now you need to become aware of your need to become more moderate in their usage.

There is a line from Elton John’s 1974 hit song “The Bitch Is Back,”  that states “…the times are changing now the poor get fat.” Well I would like  to update that line to state “…the times are changing now both the poor and the rich get fat.”

Wake up! The longer you carry the weight, the more likely that you will carry it for the rest of your life. Don’t be just upset, be aware of what you do. It does not have to be this way.
