Barry from Australia is a questioning soul who looks at social issues from an alternative point of view and instead of asking, “Why?”, he asks “Why not?” He’s convinced that many of his previous incarnations were spent in China. He feels drawn to the people there; attracted by their rich culture and way of life. If given one wish from God, he’d reply, “I want everyone on Earth to be the same colour, speak the same language, and treat each other as they themselves would like to be treated.”

How to Lose Weight and Keep It Off - GUARANTEED!

In todays's society, being tall and slim is the new elitism. A lean cowboy physique means you must be smarter and more successful than a shorter, fatter person, right? Of course, this stereotype is in reality quite wrong. But it's hard to shake. Just look at Justin Trudeau, Canada's Prime Minister, to see what I mean. Does anyone reading this - ignoring your political persuasion for one moment -  genuinely believe if PM Trudeau was a short, plump man, that he'd have reached the heights that he has today?


In Australia, a well known former Prime Minister was John Howard. Though at 176 cms, he wasn't the tallest guy in the room. It was quite noticeable that when his political opponents wanted to deride him, they'd mostly refer to him as "Little Johnny". The prejudice in this instance was against his height rather than his weight, but the principle is the same. Using physical lowball tactics such as this against someone is a pretty nasty game.


Let's face facts. Many Western men need to lose a bit of weight. Many ladies also of course, but for the moment, let's focus on men. As far as males on are concerned, if they hope to maximise their chances of winning the heart of a lovely Chinese or Asian lady, they'll be in a better position to do this, if their body looks reasonably taut and trim for their age.  This is bleeding obvious, but yet so often seems to be ignored. It's almost as if they prefer to be abhorred. But why?


After many years of on-off dieting, I've finally discovered a sure fire way for those men out there trying to impress the ladies, how they can at last lose weight. More importantly, once the pounds have been shed, how they can be kept off forever. Don't know about you, but I reckon this is pretty clever!


Sound too good to be true?  Well, maybe it is. But I'll describe my personal journey and let you decide for yourself. No other references were referred to in the penning of this article, plagiarism didn't occur. By their very nature however, techniques here almost certainly have been independently described elsewhere, I make no claims about supposed uniqueness of information. Thoughts here though are entirely of my own creation.


Okay, this article is based entirely upon personal experience. Should you have any follow up remarks or questions, I'll do my best to answer them candidly in the comments section below. All are welcome to add a few words, perhaps about your own personal position in this fraught area. Because body mass issues are increasingly becoming one of the woefully weighty (if you'll pardon the pun!) issues of our time. But is being fat so bad, such a crime? Let's investigate and see. Hopefully a possible conclusion we can then agree.




People sometimes compliment me on my slim physique. Others have remarked words to the effect that "too bad I wasn't born with genes likes yours - I bet you can eat anything and not put on a pound!"


Though to balance this out, a few people have surprisingly remarked how I look a bit sickly, apparently because I look a bit thin. Normally comments like these come from people who are far from slim. Probably all their friends are the same, so to them, being overweight is the new normal. Sad stuff. This scenario happened to me as recently as a couple of weeks ago. My answer to the plump person who remarked if I was recovering from an illness because of my lean body was,


"Well, if I look a bit sickly, then so be it. Because I go on brisk 20 kilometre walks several times per week and feel great!"


This comment shut the person up very quickly. Probably the longest walk she did each week was to buy groceries or walk to the car. I've heard about penis envy before, is there such a thing as body weight envy? Why would a plumpish person say that a lean looking cowboy type looks a bit seedy or sickly? Actually my ex-wife says this all the time to me, telling me to put on more weight. After a while though, her remarks do become boring, they make me in fact, soon start snoring, having heard them so often. When she goes off like this, I generally simply shake my head in disbelief, asking silently for a bit of relief. She may not realise she's an annoying nagger. Though gazing upon her non-slim figure, she has indeed, no right to swagger.


Like so many good folks out there, I've had to be very cognisant of weight problems intermittently through various stages of my life. Fortunately I never reached the "plump" stage, but this was because of luck more than anything else, that is, my circumstances and situation at the time. I guess good genes must also play their part to some extent. I'd never been a big eater though, this had never been a particular bent.


Once I reached my fifties however, things changed. As a person reaches middle age, their metabolism slows down. Activity levels often decrease. Yet eating patterns typically remain more or less unchanged. This means trouble ahead. Cut out that bread!


Yes. Add these three factors together and you have a recipe for body issue angst. Most middle aged men and women increasingly add to their mass much faster than when they were younger. This sadly leads to an ageing population of increasingly overweight and obese folks. Let's not even mention at this time the increasing proportion of overweight school children, a genuine problem that's now being alarmingly noticed in China. Popular food outlets such as KFC, McDonalds, Burger King, etc are mushrooming everywhere there. The dismaying end results of many Chinese adopting an increasingly Westernised diet are no surprise. Cut out those fries!


More will be revealed in part 2 of this blog. Hard and even unsavoury facts to be told that'll provide substantial food for thought. Tough problems require tough solutions, for those in need. Control that appetite, temper that greed! 


Until then, please think thin. The battle of life and good health is about to begin. Many may not like what I'm gonna say. Be strong though, plunge headlong into the affray!



Obesity blues, makes me feel sad

Bulbous body, looking so bad

Slim women dislike me, that's a fact

I swear to lose weight, that's my pact

It's a bruising battle I keep losing

Though being plump, is far from my choosing!

Political or Conspiracy Theory Comments will NOT be Approved.

Barry has requested that politically charged or conspiracy theory oriented comments or discussion not be approved. Because there is no glaring or obvious content in this blog that would invite such comments the blogger's wishes will be honored.

Bloggers, if you do not wish such discussions to take place on any blog article you are posting, write to me at and advise me of your wishes. Unless I see clear grounds for someone to Shanghai your article into such a discussion I will honor your request.

More on this to follow...

A suggestion. If a writer makes the following opening comment for their blog or forum thread -

Request - Political and conspiracy theory comments not to be approved.

You could follow with Request will be implemented.

I think this would make the process as simple as possible for the writer.

why is it ok for the poster to include politics in the artical

fair is fair

the poster could have use any other analagy

even more so knowing they were asking you to censor responces

#2018-08-30 14:39:10 by JohnAbbot @JohnAbbot

@melcyan - I thought about doing that, but the problem is that it would easily cause issues due to the touchiness of the HTML Editor that lies behind each blog. I don't want to get into details, because they are convoluted, techy and really boring, but if we did it that way there is a 50/50 chance that the formatting woldn't be right and that as result I would end up having to do extensive editing of the formatting. More than I could bear.

I'm also a little concerned that newbies to the blogs would be turned off by that since they wouldn't have a clue why it was there.

And finally, when the blog is indexed by Google, when it is listed in the search engines, it would likely include that statement as the first sentence in the description of the blog, which would likely cause people to not click into see what the blog is about and how it might apply to the search phrase they typed into the search box.

Hence my decision to require the email.

I understand your misgivings in some ways, but the bottom line is that while I see Barry commenting on a couple of politicians, I don't see him commenting in any manner on their politics. Saying a specific politician has a weight problem is not a political comment, in my view.

But please explain things from your own POV and maybe I'll change my mind. However, even if there is some political notion that might be grounds for allowing political comments, that would still exclude conspiracy theory such as Flat Earth or 9/11 is a hoax, etc.

Your words about my suggestion make sense but they do not resolve the problems that have plagued CLM in recent times. The solution needs to be simple and effortless. At least as far as the bloggers themselves are concerned. It also needs to be kept in mind that there are probably many more concerned readers than there are concerned bloggers.


I have just written a forum thread titled "Old guy being oversensitive". I don't expect this to attract politically controversial comments or conspiracy theory comments. Do I still need to send an email? Can I just say here and now "From now on, I want controversial political comments and conspiracy theory comments banned on all my blogs and forum threads on CLM"?


Another possibility is to create another "tick a box" item to be placed directly after     []Anonyomous?

like []ban controversial political and conspiracy theory comments

You make a very good point. Other non-political examples could have been chosen. To choose one of the most polarising figures of Australian politics and one of the most polarising figures of Canadian politics and at the same time, demand responses free of political controversy is definitely out of order.


Just the mention of the name John Howard or Justin Trudeau is enough to set some people off.

Can't help laughing. :D:D

Ohh...ok,let us back to normal.:P :D

Fat or slim, doesn't matter much unless it has caused health problem.

Looking good and keeping fit get more chance in dating market,but at the end, a person's heart and head count most.

Having just arrived back in China, I am amazed to know that garlic is $1 per kilo, and ginger is $2 per kilo.

Compare that to Australia where 1kilo of garlic is $25, and a kilo of ginger is $40


Nuff said !
