The 25 Best Free Weight Loss Resources

Monday, February 22nd, 2010

Fat guy thinking about how to lose weightBeing overweight sucks. There are a lot of painful daily reminders about being a fat male, such as barely fitting behind the steering wheel or bending over to do anything. Thinking about weight loss is bad enough, but then you actually have to do something about it. Where do you start?

Many guys use the internet, because it is easy to be anonymous. Who wants to identify themselves as being fat? But, there is more weight loss chatter on the internet than you can shake a stick at.

I am going to cut through the clutter for you. I am friends with other fat guys on the internet that use these tools and are making great progress. So now, you do not have to go looking for all of the tools that me and other guys like you actually need. And luckily for you, no matter where you go, you’re going to see some gratuitous pictures of Jillian Michaels in skimpy outfits, and that ain’t bad!

Here are 3 reasons I have included these free resources here:

  1. Provide weight loss progress
  2. Easy to use
  3. They don’t use girly pastel colors (seriously)
