You sound…really bitter and like ya need to sort some shit out that has absolutely nothing to do with me or fat people.
1) People don’t die from obesity. People aren’t just dropping dead from teh fatz. I believe what you’re looking for are actual illnesses and conditions which can be linked to fat. I think it’s funny though because you people always act like fat folk just drop like flies and as though we all have a heart attack by the age of 25 and die at 30. Brah, let me just tell you that I know a TON (like 100s upon 100s) of fat people and I have known them for many years and they’re still alive and kickin’. Stop aggressively trying to install fear in me when I am surrounded by the thing you’re trying to act like you know about.
2) I’m not stuck in my body. I freakin’ love my body and all of it’s wobbly bits. It gets me around, it lets me experience whatever I want, it’s a goddamn great body. So no, I never even remotely implied that I’m stuck in this glorious vessel or that it’s ‘too hard to change’. That would imply that I felt I needed to change. Also, I am actually comfortably in a chair right now as opposed to a couch, but thank you for the concern.
3) Considering I’ve been with the fox for about 3 years..I think I can get a better read on what he would love and wouldn’t love. I’d say he’s pretty happy with my weight on his hips. You know what he would REALLY love? As well as myself? If self loathing, overly aggressive, bitter individuals like yourself just ceased to exist from the internet as well as real life until you could actually learn to interact with other human beings.
I apologize that the mere presence of someone you think should hate themselves, actually loving themselves and sharing it with the world, gets you this riled up.
This is all predicated on watching this documentary called Fed Up where they just explain nutrition in a way that suddenly clicked for me after 44 years. Since the early 70s, every processed food company in this country has been quietly adding more and more sugar—and with good reason, because we like the taste of it and they’re in the business of making money. They’re like, “People like it when it tastes sweet? We’ll put fuckin’ more sugar in it!”
I never learned how to eat properly. I’m a processed food eater. I’m the kind of guy who, if I’m offered real mashed potatoes, will ask, “Can you make instant?” I like shit that comes out of a box. In the documentary, they say that the government’s been telling you for decades that if you eat less and exercise more, then you’ll lose weight.
But it is physically impossible for average people to burn off what they’re consuming. If you give a kid a juice box, he has to pedal around in circles on a tricycle for six hours to burn it off. We’ve been lied to. I’ve eaten less and exercised and lost some weight, but not a lot. It’s the sugar, dude.
Everything I reach for has sugar in it. I realize now that the dopamine system is about reward. You eat some jellybeans that are bubble gum flavored and you’re like “Oh my god, it’s gum I can swallow?” and suddenly you’re happy. They broke down the process.
Human beings aren’t supposed to consume fruit juice. All the fiber in the actual fruit slows the absorption of sugar into your system. When you drink juice, it just hits you with all the sugar at once and your pancreas goes “Make insulin!” and that’s all my body does. My pancreas has been like “Look at all this sugar, let’s store it.” I wear a fucking fat suit of sugar.
For 44 years I’ve been poisoning myself with sugar and I’ve had a great time. But it’s eventually going to kill me. So I decided to try six months without sugar and see what happens. I talked to my friend Phil and he said, “I tried that six months ago.” I said “Get out of here, man! When does it start to feel better?” and he said “Still waiting for it.”

Yesterday’s Walk! Day 12 REBOOT
This has been hard, but we took another walk again. it kicked our ass. nothing comes easy in this world. Happy to be walking again with my brother.
2 Fat Brothers on a Fat Ass Journey to get SLIM.
“I like clothes now. I have more energy. I sleep better. My sex drive is up. Blood’s flowing. I’m less susceptible to impulse. I’m in a different mode. When I was way out of shape, the idea of using whitening strips on my teeth seemed terrible. I have to do that every day? I’ll never do it. What you want is instant results when you’re out of shape. You want your teeth whitened in 45 minutes with the use of lasers. But when you’re in shape, you know it’s the result of doing a little bit every day. Moments aren’t just moments. A moment might be a week or a month. So instead of Boy, I’d love to eat this hamburger right now, I’m considering a little further into the future. I’m thinking, I eat that hamburger and that’s 1,200 calories, and I’m gonna work out tomorrow and lose 800 calories. I may as well eat a salad here, still do that workout, and then I’m actually making progress.” — Chris Pratt
This just motivated the fuck out of me.
I’m a big fat whore…
- Reject the Diet Mentality. Throw out the diet books and magazine articles that offer you false hope of losing weight quickly, easily, and permanently. Get angry at the lies that have led you to feel as if you were a failure every time a new diet stopped working and you gained back all of the weight. If you allow even one small hope to linger that a new and better diet might be lurking around the corner, it will prevent you from being free to rediscover Intuitive Eating.
- Honor Your Hunger. Keep your body biologically fed with adequate energy and carbohydrates. Otherwise you can trigger a primal drive to overeat. Once you reach the moment of excessive hunger, all intentions of moderate, conscious eating are fleeting and irrelevant. Learning to honor this first biological signal sets the stage for re-building trust with yourself and food.
- Make Peace with Food. Call a truce, stop the food fight! Give yourself unconditional permission to eat. If you tell yourself that you can’t or shouldn’t have a particular food, it can lead to intense feelings of deprivation that build into uncontrollable cravings and, often, bingeing When you finally “give-in” to your forbidden food, eating will be experienced with such intensity, it usually results in Last Supper overeating, and overwhelming guilt.
- Challenge the Food Police. Scream a loud “NO” to thoughts in your head that declare you’re “good” for eating under 1000 calories or “bad” because you ate a piece of chocolate cake. The Food Police monitor the unreasonable rules that dieting has created . The police station is housed deep in your psyche, and its loud speaker shouts negative barbs, hopeless phrases, and guilt-provoking indictments. Chasing the Food Police away is a critical step in returning to Intuitive Eating.
- Respect Your Fullness. Listen for the body signals that tell you that you are no longer hungry. Observe the signs that show that you’re comfortably full. Pause in the middle of a meal or food and ask yourself how the food tastes, and what is your current fullness level?
- Discover the Satisfaction Factor. The Japanese have the wisdom to promote pleasure as one of their goals of healthy living In our fury to be thin and healthy, we often overlook one of the most basic gifts of existence—the pleasure and satisfaction that can be found in the eating experience. When you eat what you really want, in an environment that is inviting and conducive, the pleasure you derive will be a powerful force in helping you feel satisfied and content. By providing this experience for yourself, you will find that it takes much less food to decide you’ve had “enough”.
- Honor Your Feelings Without Using Food. Find ways to comfort , nurture, distract, and resolve your issues without using food. Anxiety, loneliness, boredom, anger are emotions we all experience throughout life. Each has its own trigger, and each has its own appeasement. Food won’t fix any of these feelings. It may comfort for the short term, distract from the pain, or even numb you into a food hangover. But food won’t solve the problem. If anything, eating for an emotional hunger will only make you feel worse in the long run. You’ll ultimately have to deal with the source of the emotion, as well as the discomfort of overeating.
- Respect Your Body. Accept your genetic blueprint. Just as a person with a shoe size of eight would not expect to realistically squeeze into a size six, it is equally as futile (and uncomfortable) to have the same expectation with body size. But mostly, respect your body, so you can feel better about who you are. It’s hard to reject the diet mentality if you are unrealistic and overly critical about your body shape.
- Exercise—Feel the Difference. Forget militant exercise. Just get active and feel the difference. Shift your focus to how it feels to move your body, rather than the calorie burning effect of exercise. If you focus on how you feel from working out, such as energized, it can make the difference between rolling out of bed for a brisk morning walk or hitting the snooze alarm. If when you wake up, your only goal is to lose weight, it’s usually not a motivating factor in that moment of time.
- Honor Your Health—Gentle Nutrition. Make food choices that honor your health and tastebuds while making you feel well. Remember that you don’t have to eat a perfect diet to be healthy. You will not suddenly get a nutrient deficiency or gain weight from one snack, one meal, or one day of eating. It’s what you eat consistently over time that matters, progress not perfection is what counts.
