Member Blog: How to stop being fat


That’s the thing that is on everyone’s mind.  Our world, our country, ourselves.  How do we really stop being fat?  A great question, but not an easy one to answer.  Ten years ago I made up my mind to stop being fat.  Having grown up with an unhealthy relationship with food, my weight grew to 358 pounds by my junior year of highschool.  By my freshman year of college I had had enough.  I changed my lifestyle, my relationship with food, and incorporated exercise into my life.  Now ten years and 140 pounds healthier, I feel balanced and complete.  This experience has lead me to an unwavering passion of health.  I am a certified nutritional health counselor and life coach, and my profession allows me to help people through my passion and experience.  If you want to know more please voice it as a response to this blog.  Would love to blog more on metabolism.com, but want to know if there is an interest out there to listen to what I have to say 🙂

    I was way overweight and I had no success with several diet programs I tried. I could lose a bit of weight but always it came right back when I came off the diet. I realised that I needed exercise as well as a good diet. However jogging was not for me. I tried it but just couldn’t do it. I was advised to walk and this was the real turning point in my quest for weight loss and fitness. With a healthy diet of veggies,fruit,beans and nuts and just a little lean meat and fish the pounds just melted off. I gradually extended the distance of my brisk daily walk and not only lost weight but got the aerobic exercise which was needed for my heart and lungs.Now I feel great and I am lean and fit. I advise anyone who seriously wants to lose weight to get walking.It works for me.

  • Hey John,
    Great story! Since we are all bio-individual, different exercises work for different people. It is AWESOME that you found what works best for you! Keep up the great work!
    Be well,

  • Hey Senorita…
    It sounds like you just need some fine-tuning. Try eating your fruits in the morning/early afternoon. Most fruits are high in sugar and you should eat them early on in the day. Eat more protein at night, and leave 3-4 hours between your last meal and the time you go to bed. Switch from cereal to oatmeal(whole oats, not from package). Rice, make sure you are eating BROWN, and not white. Try and get all whites(bread, rice, pasta) out of your diet by switching to their better alternatives. Hope this helps! YOU CAN DO THIS!

    I can say i have never been fat, but i started to gain weight, more then I should have. What you eat has everything to do with it. I gained about 10 pounds over a 2 year period and for me that was a lot. When my clothing started to not fit me I wasnt happy. I 100% agree with everything that bobby said. Only brown rice, only whole wheat EVERYTHING, and you need to eat every 3 hours or so. I can say what worked for me. No fast food at all. That seems to be a major issue these days. Fast food is everywhere and it is so high in sodium and fats and is so unhealthy. Also dont eat full eggs, only eat the egg whites. Egg whites are so healthy for you because of the high protein in them. Also the most important thing that i did is started taking multi-enzymes. People dont realize that you dont digest a lot of the food that you eat. Enzymes help you digest 3-4 times the amount that you normally would, especially for people that dont chew their food that well. Also excercise. I got the Jillian Michaels 30 day shred. Its only 20 minutes a day. If you cant put in 20 minutes then your just being lazy. In less then 2 months of doing all that i lost the 10 pounds, and I am back to the weight that i am happy with. I hope this was helpful to everyone

    I’m interested how you discipline your mind to obey and how you overcame temptations.
