How to Lose Weight and Keep It Off - GUARANTEED! Part 2

We discussed in Part 1 of this blog that once people reach middle age, their metabolism slows down. Activity levels often decrease. Yet eating patterns typically remain more or less unchanged. This means threatening clouds looming on the horizon as far as weight issues are concerned. More calories going into your body with less being burnt or otherwise negated in some way, only means one thing. Trouble. Amidst the rubble and the unending stubble of our inevitably ageing and often lonely lives.

We discussed in Part 1 of this blog that once people reach middle age, their metabolism slows down. Activity levels often decrease. Yet eating patterns typically remain more or less unchanged. This means threatening clouds looming on the horizon as far as weight issues are concerned. Oh joy. More calories going into your body with less being burnt or otherwise negated in some way, only means one thing. Trouble. Amidst the rubble and the unending stubble of our inevitably ageing and often lonely lives.



Weight issues are extraordinarily important. Fat folks are often the butt of jokes from callous people. Not everyone in the world is kind unfortunately. Many don't realise however, that a percentage of obese souls in fact, have little control of their body mass. A number of extraneous factors can be involved as far as body weight is concerned.



Excess weight can be caused for example, by glandular malfunctions such as hypothyroidism. This is where the thyroid gland, located in the neck just below your Adam's apple, produces too little thyroid hormone. This chemical regulates our metabolism, so it doesn't take a rocket scientist to realise that a slow metabolic rate can cause major adverse weight issues in those poor folk so afflicted. Don't bother trying to feel your thyroid, it's shaped like a pair of butterfly wings, wrapping around the trachea or windpipe. Trying to get a grasp of it in your partner may lead to an accidental homicide through choking or strangulation!



"I'm sorry, Your Honor, I was simply attempting to massage my wife's thyroid in order to help with her chronic weight problem, when suddenly I realised she'd stopped breathing!"



It's common sense knowledge that genetics or hereditary also plays a major role in weight issues. If you were lucky enough to have thin parents, it'll be easier for you also to be thin. If your parents resembled a pair of sumo wrestlers, then the chances of being thin are next to nil. Who said life was fair? Certainly not me!



Other major factors involved in weight are culture, environment and behaviour.  Let's briefly look at these. Ignoring for the moment, relevant sub-factors such as job, money, gender, education level, marital status, psychological factors such as eating disorders, etc that also all play their role. But this article, not being a Ph.D. thesis and being penned by a long-suffering soul with a million other things to do, will overlook these! Poetic licence, if you will.



In some cultures, plump people are regarded more highly. Thin people are frowned upon. Solomon Islanders for example, believe the fatter you are, the more prosperous you must be! Many other countries could be cited here also, with interesting, diverse cultural takes on body weight. Suffice to say though, this blog and the information therein, is directed toward Western men, rather than central African pygmies or the cannibals and shrunken head bearing tribes of remote New Guinea.



Environment also plays its part in weight issues. Many Saharan clans for example, look pretty thin because of where they live - drought, disease, famine, etc all play their invidious role. Then there are some Eskimos who look pretty chubby because it's hard to do regular exercise in minus 30 or 40 degree winter chills, especially on a diet of fatty seal or whale meat! Once again, but for time restraints, many other societies could be mentioned here also, where regional environmental factors greatly contribute to individual population weight.



Did you know that the three countries with the greatest body mass indexes (BMI) in the world are the Pacific islands of Nauru, Tonga and the Solomon Islands? This explains why so many of these guys make great wrestlers and shot putters. But not many of them are much good at the high jump or hurdles!



The three countries with the lowest BMI values are Burundi in central Africa, followed by Ethiopia and Eritrea, with Bangladesh not far behind. Every Westerner reading this article should in fact prostrate themselves on their knees for a few moments, thanking the good Lord above, or whatever higher power they believe in, that they were not born in any of these impoverished, crime infested lands. Your day to day, largely trivial problems pale into insignificance compared to the chronic battle for survival faced by many long-suffering folk here, as sadly reflected by their much diminished average life expectancies.



In bloated, self-important Western societies, the home of Hollywood, Westminster Abbey or the Sydney Opera House, rampant famine and shocking living conditions aren't the major problem. Individual behaviour is the greatest single factor as far as obesity is concerned. That is, over-eating. Pigging out. Poor diet. Alcohol. Often associated with insufficient exercise. Need I say more? Obesity is ballooning in the West, associated with alarming rises in associated diseases and disorders such as diabetes, hypertension, coronary heart conditions, osteoarthritis, heightened cholesterol levels, even sleep apnea and chronic depression. Is never-ending greed and gluttony worth all of this?



Avarice not just for food but for everything. We kick up a stink when our cable TV stops working. We want a nicer, newer car even though there's nothing at all wrong with our current vehicle that runs perfectly. We walk past the stricken and the homeless on the street with eyes that are deliberately blind, hearts that are stone cold. Minds that have become inured and numb to the manifest deprivation and dismaying affliction all around us. The cruelest irony - the greatest joke - of all is that we then hope to go to heaven, or to whatever higher stratum of existence that we choose to believe in.  Fat chance of that! Who are we kidding?



Anyway, enough. Let the disturbing rhetorical questions remain inhumanly unanswered within the too hard basket. I'm just as cold-hearted and callous as the rest of you. My small role here though is to spread the word, maybe make people think a little about the complex issues involved not just around weight, but the many complex extraneous matters surrounding this labyrinthine area as well. Interconnected as they all are, like individual strands within a giant spider's web. Inadvertently kill a butterfly in the Amazon, potentially leading eventually to the slow death of an elephant in Botswana.



All the world's a stage. Every animal, every organism within it is an actor. An active participant. A ripple in the Mississippi could lead to a tsunami in Yokohama. Who could dare claim this is impossible? Who could arrogantly assert that the physical world around us that we can see with our eyes, smell with our nose, touch with our fingers - is the only dimension of existence out there?



On a philosophical note, I believe it's important to understand that if a person can’t control his natural desires, if he doesn’t possess the self-discipline to properly look after and maintain his body and his health, my inherent belief is he isn’t nearly ready to move on to higher planes of existence. A goal that all of us should aspire to. Some enlightened souls actually achieve this, bless them. Certain pious Buddhist monks - and I'm sure, some selfless philanthropists and untainted devotees of other religions as well - come to mind here. But ah, this is a whole other story. Their power and their glory will be described another time.



In part 3 of this series, we'll zero in on specific tips involved in weight management. Let me say again, the thoughts described in this blog series are based on my own personal journey into this fraught area. I considered myself too plump and swore that I would do something about this. It turned out to be a much more difficult task than initially I'd imagined.



Thank you for your attention.



Obesity blues, that awful tune

body feeling fat, like a bloated moon

Looking in the mirror, I grow to hate

Perpetual aloneness, such is my fate

Meeting a good woman just so damn hard

With gut sticking out, like a pig that’s charred

I pray to almighty great God above

Where, oh where, can I finally find love?

Interesting blog Barry. You've put a lot of thought into this. No doubt a lot of that thought occurred when you were going through the process of curing your own plumpness which you are going to describe next I assume. But a lot of thought has likely gone into your writing this while in the actual writing process, based on a lot of your insights above.



You write about the ballooning obesity in our gluttonous Western countries, which is undeniably apparent. I am curious, though, as to how bad it is in Australia. Just for example, roughly 6 years ago or so, I happened to research where Austrlalia and Canada ranked in the world for obesity and my recollection is that they both were within the top 15 for the year 2010, and they were very close to the same. 



But for the year 2016 they appear to still be very close to each other, but are ranking 26th and 27th. So my question is, based on your own personal observation, do you think that Australia (and Canada presumably) has improved somewhat as to it's level of obesity, or have a bunch of other countries just ballooned past it on the charts?



You also write:



"We walk past the stricken and the homeless on the street with eyes that are deliberately blind, hearts that are stone cold. Minds that have become inured and numb to the manifest deprivation and dismaying affliction all around us."



In my 3 visits to Brisbane in 2006 and 2007 I did not witness "manifest deprivation and dismaying affliction". You live there so I am sure that you know better then I do, so tell me, is that something that is prevalent in Brisbane? I must say that I don't think it is prevalent in Canada,although there are no doubt small pockets of it in some of the major cities and on some of the native reservations.



I did see more of that in China than in our countries, but I think it is a shrinking problem in China, as obesity is growing. I also saw signs of "manifest deprivation and dismaying affliction" in Los Angeles, both when I lived there in the 1990's and when I visited for a couple of weeks this past winter. But during that visit what I noticed was a startling increase in the numbers of obese people I encountered compared to two decades earlier.



What I am getting at is that, overall, I think that obesity is an increasing problem in first world countries and abject poverty is a declining problem in most of them. Would you agree?



And if you do agree, doesn't that mean that while more and more of us are getting fat, we are also helping more and more escape abject poverty.



So how does that fit in with your belief that "if a person can’t control his natural desires, if he doesn’t possess the self-discipline to properly look after and maintain his body and his health, my inherent belief is he isn’t nearly ready to move on to higher planes of existence." 



What about fat people who do a lot of good work to help poor people escape abject poverty; do they get to go on to higher plains of existence?

Barry, well thought out and once again well written blog entry. I think obesity for the most part comes from the masses being brainwashed by Hollywood and drug companies. Telling young women who are overweight it is ok, love your body the way it is, having fat clothes models on telly commercials 24/7 basically brain washing western women and to some extent western men that being fat or obese is ok just love your body is a way of controlling the masses. This is all part of the plan to decapitate western society, culture and the destruction of white man by a certain race/ethnic group.

I also tend to think that being too thin or what we refer to as a `bonerack` is not a healthy way to live either.

Diabetes is running rampant in western societies and diabetes untreated is a definite killer. High Cholesterol leads to high blood pressure which most definitely leads to a heart attack or a stroke. My worries are the youngsters of today wont get a handle on their weights and will pass it to their kids and so on and so on. If you watch alot of the younger teens walk these days they tend to be knocked kneed because they are 20-40 lbs overweight and their bodies cant support the weight properly. 

I was told by my doctor just yesterday that I have to lose at least 20lbs and increase my exercise dramatically or I will become one the statistics we are discussing here. We all know better but it is difficult to do. 

My goal is to control the portion size of my meals, have a balanced combination of the food groups each meal and drink a hell of alot more water than I do at present, my kidneys will love me for this.

How many western men do not wake up with "morning wood" and dont really have to pee in the mornings? If this is you this is a wakeup signal your body is giving you. Best listen to it and do something about it.

Barry you are 6' 4000 (chuckle chuckle) and are in good shape physically, as you said in other blogs you are a bit on the thin side but not flabby thin but toned, muscular thin. You should be proud of that and your walking accomplishments.

I hate the fact that I have a double chin, a burdgening belly and I am starting to get manboobs......... lowered testosterone levels in my body because of eating chemically altered foods does not help. This also affects the quality of my sleep each night.

To all men here, if you cant look down when you are naked and see your dick, you are in trouble, if you grunt when doing up your shoelaces you are in trouble..........this includes me!

Just think, if you are diagnosed with High blood pressure, high cholesterol and your on the cusp of becoming diabetic the doctors will want to put you on 3-4 different medications to control these issues and have you change your diet drastically, you become exactly what you didnt want in the first place. These conditions can be controlled by diet and exercise or you can diet and exercise now before it happens to you.

 

To infinity and beyond!

Somebody poisoned the waterhole!

@JohnAbbot

 

Interesting blog Barry.

 

Thank you, John.

 

You've put a lot of thought into this. No doubt a lot of that thought occurred when you were going through the process of curing your own plumpness which you are going to describe next I assume. But a lot of thought has likely gone into your writing this while in the actual writing process, based on a lot of your insights above.

 

Yes. I rewrote and amended this blog several times. Akin to an artist who paints over his pictures, because he suddenly decides he doesn't like the original.


 

You write about the ballooning obesity in our gluttonous Western countries, which is undeniably apparent. I am curious, though, as to how bad it is in Australia. Just for example, roughly 6 years ago or so, I happened to research where Austrlalia and Canada ranked in the world for obesity and my recollection is that they both were within the top 15 for the year 2010, and they were very close to the same.

But for the year 2016 they appear to still be very close to each other, but are ranking 26th and 27th. So my question is, based on your own personal observation, do you think that Australia (and Canada presumably) has improved somewhat as to it's level of obesity, or have a bunch of other countries just ballooned past it on the charts?

 

The top 10 obese countries in the world in 2017 are:
 

United States of America – 109,342,839

China – 97,256,700

India – 65,619,826

Brazil – 41,857,656

Mexico – 36,294,881

Russia – 34,701,531

Egypt – 28,192,861

Turkey – 23,819,781

Iran – 21,183,488

Nigeria – 20,997,494

 

As for obesity in Australia, I don't believe it's getting any better. But yes, due to the burgeoning middle classes in less developed countries, obesity in these places is certainly increasing. China is a classic example of this.

 

You also write:

"We walk past the stricken and the homeless on the street with eyes that are deliberately blind, hearts that are stone cold. Minds that have become inured and numb to the manifest deprivation and dismaying affliction all around us."

And if you do agree, doesn't that mean that while more and more of us are getting fat, we are also helping more and more escape abject poverty.

 

I was writing in this instance as a global citizen, John. Taking a broad view, not a parochial one. Having lived for various times in countries spanning three continents (Australia, USA and China), in every one of them I witnessed varying and always disturbing, levels of homelessness, poverty and deprivation. In the developed countries, homelessness is particularly apparent in the big cities. In places like China, it is of course, much more widespread.

 

One has to look at other socially disruptive factors also, such as increasing levels of mental illness, chronic unemployment, loneliness and housing unaffordability, etc. These also are intended to be included in my statements re widespread deprivation and affliction surrounding us all.

 

So overall, I think general levels of unhappiness, deprivation and poverty (mental as well as physical) are increasing globally, not decreasing.  What I'm getting at here is that simply because people are no longer living in physical poverty, their lives can still be impoverished in other ways.

 

How does that fit in with your belief that "if a person can’t control his natural desires, if he doesn’t possess the self-discipline to properly look after and maintain his body and his health, my inherent belief is he isn’t nearly ready to move on to higher planes of existence."  What about fat people who do a lot of good work to help poor people escape abject poverty; do they get to go on to higher plains of existence?

 

It depends on whether they are fat due to factors beyond their control or not, such as if they have hormone imbalances or whatever. 

But if a fat person is deliberately abusing his body through factors such as gluttony, my belief is this will count as negatives in his life karma balance sheet.

Sure, the good work that he does to help others will be positives. But our bodies are the home of our souls, and in my view, should be respected, not treated poorly.

So if a person wants his spirit to progress, my belief is he must not only help others, but help himself also, meaning look after the meaty vessel that his soul resides within. To a reasonable degree, I don't mean to become obsessive.

I won't categorically say that a deliberately overweight person can never progress to the next spiritual level, what I will say though is that it would be easier for him to do so, if he has made sincere attempts during his life to properly maintain his health. Not ignore it, unless very good reasons exist for him to have done so.

I'm cognisant also that there are exceptions to every rule. I would treat every person, every soul, on a case by case basis, were I in charge of deciding whether one was to spiritually progress or not. There are no iron clad rules here, a degree of flexibility and understanding of the overall situation is required.

Barry, well thought out and once again well written blog entry.

 

Thanks mate.

 

I think obesity for the most part comes from the masses being brainwashed by Hollywood and drug companies. Telling young women who are overweight it is ok, love your body the way it is, having fat clothes models on telly commercials 24/7 basically brain washing western women and to some extent western men that being fat or obese is ok just love your body is a way of controlling the masses. This is all part of the plan to decapitate western society, culture and the destruction of white man by a certain race/ethnic group.

 

Interesting views!  I know in Australia, there's a push to stop demonising fuller figured ladies, to accept this as normal. Yet at the same time, the weight loss industries here are enormous.

 

 

I also tend to think that being too thin or what we refer to as a `bonerack` is not a healthy way to live either.

 

Sure.  Though fortunately, such people are not in abundance.

 

Diabetes is running rampant in western societies and diabetes untreated is a definite killer. High Cholesterol leads to high blood pressure which most definitely leads to a heart attack or a stroke. My worries are the youngsters of today wont get a handle on their weights and will pass it to their kids and so on and so on. If you watch alot of the younger teens walk these days they tend to be knocked kneed because they are 20-40 lbs overweight and their bodies cant support the weight properly. 

 

Knee and hip replacement operations here are sky rocketing. A big part of this is due to carrying too much weight over many years.

 

I was told by my doctor just yesterday that I have to lose at least 20lbs and increase my exercise dramatically or I will become one the statistics we are discussing here. We all know better but it is difficult to do. 

 

Losing weigh is indeed difficult. No real shortcuts exist.

 

 

My goal is to control the portion size of my meals, have a balanced combination of the food groups each meal and drink a hell of alot more water than I do at present, my kidneys will love me for this.

 

Yes, these strategies will help. Wait though until you see part 3 of this blog series, for my ideas in this area.

 

How many western men do not wake up with "morning wood" and dont really have to pee in the mornings? If this is you this is a wakeup signal your body is giving you. Best listen to it and do something about it.

 

People are getting older, life spans are increasing. This means it's more important than ever, to look after yourself, if you don't want to end up in a nursing home or suchlike.

 

Barry you are 6' 4000 (chuckle chuckle) and are in good shape physically, as you said in other blogs you are a bit on the thin side but not flabby thin but toned, muscular thin. You should be proud of that and your walking accomplishments.

 

Thanks mate.  It's taken a lot of hard work and discipline to reach where I currently am.

 

I hate the fact that I have a double chin, a burdgening belly and I am starting to get manboobs......... lowered testosterone levels in my body because of eating chemically altered foods does not help. This also affects the quality of my sleep each night.

To all men here, if you cant look down when you are naked and see your dick, you are in trouble, if you grunt when doing up your shoelaces you are in trouble..........this includes me!

These conditions can be controlled by diet and exercise or you can diet and exercise now before it happens to you.

 

Such good, sincere advice.  I really hope every person reading these wise words takes careful note of your message here.

 To look in the mirror and despise the way you look is a very unhealthy state of mind. It is likely that after weight loss that unhealthy state of mind will still remain.

 

A healthy mind and healthy weight need to be twin goals. Both are important but a healthy mind is by far the more important of the two. A healthy body is also more important than healthy weight. If you are over 50, have a healthy mind and body and you are slightly above the healthy weight range (slightly overweight but nowhere near obese) then it is no big deal. No matter what, enjoy your life.

@Barry1

Much of the obesity we see today comes from 'fast-food'. Namely, outlets such as 'McDeath', and 'Kentucky Fried Crap'.

Whether it's true or not, there's heaps of information, that's freely available, showing McDonalds meat-processing plant, and accusations of horsemeat, and even aborted foetuses, being added to their burgers. Perhaps that's why kids think they're so 'delicious'?

 

KFC chicken 'farms' include mutant chickens with 4 leags and 2 heads.

The point being that whether this is true or not, is immaterial.

They COULD, if they wanted to, add anything to their burgers, and we'd never know for certain.

Likewise with KFC.

The fact remains that if you go to a 'regular' restaurant, the owner would like to see you again. Therefore there's a pretty good chance that the food, they serve you, is of a reasonable standard.

 

How can the same be said for 'McDeath' and 'Kentucky Fired Crap', etc?

The owners of these outlets couldn't give a rat's flying ass if they never see you again. There's plenty more idiots who will go there in order to eat their garbage!

 

In other words, they have little, or no, INCENTIVE to keep your custom.

 

Therefore, these 'purveyors-of-shit' can feed you anything they desire, and you'd never know!

Obesity is the world's #1 killer.

Many years ago we used to say, 'You never see a fat Chinaman' when arguing with our loved-ones as to whether we should have Chinese takeaway on a Saturday night.

Sadly, for many visitors to big cities such as Shanghai, Beijing, Guangzhou, etc, they cannot say the same today.

I've encountered quite a lot of BIG people in China lately, and I put it down to their love of the garbage sold at the aforementioned outlets.

Just MHO.

How do you maintain, or get, a 'healthy mind' ?

#2018-09-20 23:44:16 by paulfox1 @paulfox1


@anonymous18039

This is NOT a 'conspiracy theory', but everything you have described above is done deliberately.

'Big Pharma' is the #2 money-making industry on Earth - second only to 'arms', (which is why there's perpetual war).

Pharmacies are on every street corner for a reason! It's the same here in China!

They WANT us all to be totally reliant on drugs and medication - it's how they make their money!

A few years ago I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes.

My doctor told me I would be drug-dependent for the rest of my life. I refused to accept this, and after 9 months I was given the 'all-clear'.

 

How many people do you know over the age of, say, 50, who are stuck with spending thousands of $$ on medication for the rest of their life, just because their doc has told them they have 'high blood pressure', or a 'heart murmur'; diabetes; depression; social disorder; and any other BS their doctor decides?

The truth is that they're too SCARED to ignore their doctor's advice, so they go on paying heaps of $$ to 'Big Pharma', in order to keep themselves 'healthy'.

 

A slice of carrot looks like an eye. What are carrots good for?

Why are kidney beans shaped like a kidney? What are they good for?

Why are tomatoes red, and why do they have 4 x 'chambers'? What are they good for?

Why does a walnut look like a brain? What are they good for?

 

If the answer isn't blindingly obvious, then well done! You have been well-and-truly indoctrinated into the world of 'Big-Pharma' !

@ barry1 A good blog Barry. You are covering an important topic. I was born poor and now I am well off. I have run four marathons. The great thing about marathon running is that your body takes over and tells you what you need to eat and drink. Marathon training requires discipline to train well but eating and drinking properly become automatic.

 

Now that I am older, richer and no longer running marathons I am overweight. Is the problem a lack of discipline or is it a lack of presence? I have recently started to eat and drink with much more presence and my weight is dropping. I now eat my food slowly and consciously. I now drink slowly and consciously. Could it be that presence, rather than discipline, is the real key to attaining and maintaining a healthy weight?
