I thought about this posting I wrote back in 2011 as I am now well on my way to regaining my fitness. For those of you who don’t know, I turned 49 in September; in July of this past year I weighed 294lbs, today I weighed in at 240lbs…. I still have 30 more pounds to drop to get back to my comfortable weight of 210lbs, and as I am losing; it is no more difficult now than it has been in the past — that is to say, it was easy then and it is easy now. This bullshit about getting older equating to weight gain is perhaps one of the greatest, most exploited, excuses of all time.
Today on the radio I heard a commercial for yet another weight loss without effort product. Accuracy be dammed — the commercial was full of standard pseudo-scientific hokum designed to separate one from their cash which I typically ignore.
However, there was one quote that got my attention.
One quote that preyed upon the fears of many people.
One quote that I know to be patently absurd, but I also know people do believe.
One quote that many use as an excuse for allowing their bodies to degrade and become burden’s on our nation’s health-care system.
What is that quote?
“The older you get the fatter you get.”
My attention was caught.
My concentration was brought to the radio.
My Sicilian blood boiled as anger fueled my seething rage.
This load of garbage was being affirmed as if it were fact.
This myth was being utilized to sell hopeful, distraught persons a magical cure to the current epidemic of obesity.
This old wives tale was being broadcast over, as WILK pitchman Steve Corbett calls them, the trusted public airwaves with the intent to exploit a gullible and desperate listening audience.
“The older you get, the fatter you get” is a simply stupid statement. Perhaps a more accurate proclamation might be the lazier you get the fatter you get.
As I have written in the past, unless there is an underlying medical cause, there is no reason, aging or any other, for one to become obese. Obesity is a result of poor eating habits and lack of proper exercise.
My experience has been, the older I am the fitter I am. The truth is that people who follow my plan don’t believe any of the standard drivel that is being propagated. They are living proof that if you follow the ObesityUndone.com plan getting fatter is not an option.
The problem with most of these weight reduction programs and products is that they are pushing the much desired fable of weight loss without effort. They will use the lazy desire to drop weight without changing eating or exercise habits to enhance their profits.
If we were to believe their hype then we could eat to our heart’s content and have the body of Adonis or Athena. Well, I myself, at one time or another, had tried almost every plan on the market. I am well aware that this is not the case. The only weight I did lose was in my wallet and bank account. The net effect, without embracing a fit lifestyle, was a rebound in weight and a more miserable existence.
Those who follow the ObesityUndone.com understand that well-being is much more than just about the numbers on the scale. It is about overall good health and weight loss is a side effect of fitness.
To develop a good physique, drop ugly disgusting body fat and to enjoy better health takes an investment. It is a combination of the threes.
The three D’s:
And the three E’s:
Don’t fall victim to the hype.
Don’t throw away hard-earned money.
Don’t ignore the old adage; “if it is too good to be true, it isn’t.”
I took control of my life, I can help others take control of theirs. I went from a disgusting 340 pound amorphous blob, to now possessing a fit physique. I exercise daily. I no longer fear an out-of-order elevator; I no longer walk by the booth at my favorite diner and I don’t need the seat-belt extender when I fly.
