Obesity Is Not Your Fault
First, you need to know that your obesity is NOT your fault.
Overweight and obesity is the natural result of the current American/western lifestyle for most men and women in America, where 75 percent of adult Americans are either overweight or obese.
Today, 7 in 10 Americans are obese or overweight, but only 36 percent think they have a weight problem. ¹
The consequences of obesity are much worse than just not looking good in or out of clothing.
And you are very familiar with them:
- High Cholesterol
- High Blood pressure
- Type 2 Diabetes
- Heart Disease
- Bone and joint problems like osteoarthritis
But, here is the good news: You can quickly correct the problem.

Is Food Your Friend or Enemy?
You eat, but you get fatter and fatter with the years. Epidemiologists have observed that the average person typically puts on 1 to 2 pounds a year from early adulthood through middle age. ²
The average American will gain about one pound of additional weight each year from age 25, or 35 extra pounds by the age of 60,³ which is because you typically lose about a half-pound of bone and muscle mass each year –(unless you’re physically active, of course) — then your body fat is increasing by 1.5 pounds each year. ³
Do the following thought experiment. Take your current weight, and add two pounds for every year until you hit age 60. The average American will gain 35 pounds by the age of 60.
Today, 3/4 of the adult population over 20 is either overweight or obese.
But, you do not have to be part of that statistic!
You need to learn how to eat without gaining weight.
Your typical weekday
Is this similar to your typical weekday?
- You rush off to work.
- You have to give a presentation or go to a meeting.
- And you have a 30 minute to one hour or more commute to the office.
- Where you will sit most of the day.
- While you are walking to your job, you stop off at a food cart and get a bagel and butter.
- Add orange juice and coffee with a muffin.
- Sometimes, more often than not, you do not have time for breakfast.
- Or even lunch.
- Then you come home famished at the end of the day.
Does this sound familiar to you?
Do You Ever Eat Real Food?
Food like vegetables, whole grains, oatmeal, berries, eggs, legumes, fish, water, tea, nuts, fruits?
You likely have no time for real food.
Let’s say you have a slice of tomato on your bagels and lox. Do you think you had your vegetables for the day?
What is more convenient than processed food? You grab a donut, a brownie, a slice of pizza, a hamburger, an egg McMuffin. Industrial facilities manufacture processed food. Your average supermarket is overflowing with processed food.
You are lucky if you can find mustard greens, watercress, bok choy, or okra in your supermarket.
Vegetables do not take center stage.
Which food products get center stage?
- Frozen dinners,
- Ice cream,
- Refined grains,
- Processed foods

A New Study Proves Fast Food is the Problem
An essential element is that they eat plenty of vegetables and whole foods. These people lost significant amounts of weight over a year.
Dr. Dariush Mozaffarian, a cardiologist and dean of the Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy at Tufts University, said the following:
“The research supports the notion that diet quality, not quantity, helps people lose and manage their weight most easily in the long run.
It also suggests that health authorities should shift away from telling the public to obsess over calories. Instead, they should encourage Americans to avoid processed foods that are made with refined starches and added sugar, like bagels, white bread, refined flour, and sugary snacks and beverages.
The new study stands apart from many previous weight-loss trials because it did not set extremely restrictive carbohydrate, fat or caloric limits on people. Instead, it only emphasized that they focus on eating whole or “real” foods — as much as they needed to avoid feeling hungry.” 4
#1 Killer Common Habit – Fast Food
Fast food, junk food, and processed food if the first of the three most common habits of the overweight man or woman.
If, on the other hand, you focus on eating real food, you will lose your excess weight.
And this will happen faster than you think possible.
Lose Weight Without Counting Calories
Do you eat on the run?
Or In the car, subway, or walking on the sidewalk?
Is it true that sometimes you have no time for meals during the day?
And the only time you get to eat is when you get home?

#2 Killer Common Habit – Starving During the Day
Have you ever said, “Whew! I did not eat all day! I was so busy at work!”? And feel a tinge of heroism for being such a hard worker. But, you do not realize that your fat hanging over your belt is your body’s revenge.
Why – because you starved your innocent body the entire day! So, your body will force you to make up the calories. As a result, dinner will go on for hours. And dinner ends with more snacking while sitting and watching TV, which is the only time you get to relax.
Let’s get this straight.
During the day when your body needs food and energy to function, you starve your body. But at night, when it is time to rest, that is when you overfeed your hungry body?
Does that make sense?
So, What’s the Solution?
All you have to do is make sure that you have three meals and at least one snack every day.
- Breakfast at 9 am
- Lunch at 12 pm
- Snack at 3 pm
- Dinner at 7 pm
Train your body to expect fuel at consistent times. And now suddenly, your body can start releasing stored up fat because you are no longer in a famine!
The number 2 habit of the overweight man or woman is starving all day and having no set meal pattern.
Build a Body Of Which You Can Be Proud
That is easy; just sit most of the day, right? Ah, but hold on, you know that sitting will not build the body you want. But, how do you build your body if you sit most of the day?
For example, does the following sound familiar:
- First, you sit in your car, on the
- bus or
- train to commute
- Then you sit in your office, at your
- desk or at meetings the rest of the day
- And then you sit again in the car, bus, or train on the way home.
- Or on the lazy boy or
- couch for another 3 to 5 hours
#3 Killer Common Habit – Sitting Disease
Sitting disease means an entire day of sitting.
To counteract this destructive habit, all you have to do is to start moving. At least 30 minutes a day. Either walk to or from the bus or train for 30 minutes before your commute. Or take a 30-minute walk break during your lunchtime.
You have to start moving.
Swim, bike, go rucking, use a treadmill, fitness trampoline, or elliptical. Walking for weight loss is a genuine form of exercise, enough for you to start losing weight and reactivating your long-dormant muscles.
And once you have lost weight, don’t think you can stop moving. To this day, I walk or use the elliptical for at least 30 minutes 5 times a week.
And that is seven years after the beginning of my weight loss journey of 100 pounds in total.
Therefore, the third bad habit of the obese man or woman is Sitting. Too. Much.
Which are the three modern habits you must fix to lose weight and get back into shape?
The Big Three Habits that Make You Fat
Ditch these three everyday habits of the obese western man or woman and get lean, fast:
- fast food
- skipping meals and starving during the day time
- sitting too much
How Long to Lose 75 Pounds?
Now you know the three dangerous habits to ditch to achieve an ideal weight, whether you need to lose 10, 20, 50, or 75 pounds.
But, you are probably wondering how long it will take you to lose 75 pounds?
To answer that question, first, think about how long it took you to put on the weight in the first place?
Most likely decades. So, don’t expect to lose 75 pounds in 1 month, 2 months, or 3 months. Don’t even try such a rapid weight loss without medical supervision.
However, do not despair! Be patient with yourself and don’t be in a rush, because the good news is that it will not take you decades to lose 75 pounds or even an entire year.
A healthy weight loss rate is approximately 1 to 2 pounds per week, or 8 pounds a month, which means you can safely reach your goal weight in ten months or less.
And there is a good chance you can lose 75 pounds in 6 months if you consistently burn extra calories by walking 30 – 45 minutes a day.
Besides walking for weight loss, full-body compound strength exercises like squats or deadlifts are excellent to help you complete your body transformation from fat to fit, from looking and feeling like Jello to Hello, How You Doing?!
Whether it takes you six months, eight months, or a year, no matter what, the time will pass, and you will emerge as a new masterpiece of yourself.
All you need to do is choose these 3 powerful lifestyle habits of:
- eating real food (instead of processed food),
- a meal schedule, (and not skipping meals and starving)
- and moving, (walking 30 – 45 minutes is excellent, and strength training will change your body)
You will not be disappointed!
