How to Lose Weight at 260 Pounds or Above Project –
If you are frustrated and thinking – “I weigh 260 pounds and want to lose weight starting today”, then you are in the right place.
Because I will help you lose weight.
And the good news is that you can not only lose weight but even get into the best shape of your life.
Between 2011 and 2012, I hit my all-time high of 275 pounds.
I knew I was up there, because I was busting out of my clothing for many years, but did not know how bad it was.
The point is that I know how you feel and how much you want to lose weight immediately.
And between June 2012 and December 2012, I lost 75 pounds in 6 months and have maintained this weight loss until today.
Along the way, I have learned valuable weight loss tips that can help you as well.
You will benefit from my experience and will hopefully avoid many of the mistakes I made.
This benefit alone can save you a lot of time and help you achieve your ideal weight.

You will lose a pound or two every week with the following tips:
How to Lose Weight at 260 Pounds or Above
Depending on your height, you might need to lose close to 100 pounds overall.
But, do not be discouraged by that number.
Instead of focusing on how to lose 100 pounds, think of a 3-month cycle to lose 20 pounds.
A smaller number like 20 pounds is more manageable to digest and target.
Once you lose your first 20 pounds, you will have more confidence that you can achieve the rest.
The hardest part of losing weight is your initial day and changing the habits that got you obese in the first place.
If you are obsessed with counting calories per day, you will not feel comfortable with the Hashi Mashi plan.
I am not a believer in 500 calories a day.
You will quickly lose 20 pounds over three months, if not more, without suffering.
And without counting how many calories you burn or consume every day.
Most Important Steps
What you need to focus on is the following:
Stop buying and eating junk food and processed food.
This rejection of processed foods will be challenging at the beginning because you are so accustomed to eating fast food.
But this step alone will yield powerful results as it did for me.
Start eating more fruits and vegetables.
Focus on the low glycemic index fruits like berries, apples, and cherries.
They will not raise your insulin levels as high as the sweeter fruits like watermelon and banana.
And elevated insulin levels are a chief culprit in your obesity.
You hit the real gold when you have more vegetables.
There are many to choose from like:
- mustard greens
When you increase your vegetable intake, suddenly you will be less hungry as the day goes on.
Vegetables also have a negligible impact on your insulin levels.
A slice of tomato is not ‘increasing your vegetables.’
If you have a side of broccoli and mushrooms with your evening meal and a raw salad, now you’re talking.
Healthy fats like olive oil and avocado are a tasty touch for any meal.
Stick with lean protein like chicken breast or plant protein like beans, lentils, and nut butter.
Carbs like quinoa, oatmeal, buckwheat groats, and brown rice are whole foods and take longer to digest than processed white bread.
Stop eating processed white bread and your bagel in the morning.
A good substitute for white bread or a bagel is Ezekiel muffin.
It is a sprouted grain bread with a low glycemic index.
Improve your eating habits.
Instead of eating one big Thanksgiving-style meal at the end of the day, commit to three meals a day.
You do not need to snack in between meals.
However, one or two light snacks are fine.
But, a set meal pattern will help your body know when it is being fed and allow it to release fat.
You cannot sit all day and expect your body to know that it needs to use its muscles.
Insulin resistance is the result of not using your muscles enough.
So, get up and start moving.
Walk at least 30 minutes a day.
Start lifting weights a few days a week if you are capable.
The deadlift is an excellent total body exercise that even an overweight person can perform, so try this deadlift program after filling out a PAR-Q and getting the green light from your doctor.
If you cannot deadlift yet, another excellent option is to use kettlebells a few times a week.

Weigh yourself daily, same time, wearing the same clothes
