The Brutally Honest 6 Reasons You Are Still Overfat

See, this guy … this is what I like to see. He is the kind of guy who doesn’t look for a politically correct or sensitive way to say things. He just says it. The meme he includes in the post pretty much sums up his way of thinking:

  1. Didn’t care for it. There is a terrible tendency to blame a fat person for being fat, as though the fault lies entirely between the ears of the victim. The thought goes like this, “Either they have no self-control, or they are lazy, or both”. However, a fat person can do everything that is ever recommended to them by their doctor or trainer and still not lose weight. The fault doesn’t lay with the victim of obesity, but more with the advice they are getting. Exercise does not lead to lower weight, it leads to increased appetite. The laws of thermodynamics apply to everything, but they don’t apply to why people gain weight if they eat just as many calories as they consume in a day. That reason is much more complex. You can’t work off fat, but you can maintain your weight while exercising. The advice to just not eat so many calories is also too simple. What matters is what you eat, not how much of it. Eating carbs leads to fat. Eating fructose sugar leads to fat. Not eating them leads to lean, even if you don’t change another single thing, and that is a law of biology that is as ironclad as the laws of energy that are misapplied when talking about gaining fat. dcarmack.com

    1. What you said here: “What matters is what you eat, not how much of it. Eating carbs leads to fat. Eating fructose sugar leads to fat. Not eating them leads to lean, even if you don’t change another single thing, and that is a law of biology that is as ironclad as the laws of energy that are misapplied when talking about gaining fat.” I think THIS is what he’s talking about, in regards to not taking responsibility for your own actions. It takes work to find this information out. There aren’t many doctors out there who recommend this way of eating. And for too many out there, if they do what their doctor suggests and it doesn’t work, they quit or are like my mom (never make changes in the first place). My mom was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes after me. She saw how I ate and the successes I had. Her response? “That’s too hard.” So, she pops her pills and eats her Chex snack mix for dinner. The only laziness I see is her unwillingness to change her thought patterns. She never takes responsibility for what she puts in her mouth. “I hate to cook for myself”, “It’s too expensive”, “It’s too hard”, etc.
