Hello Friends,


I have been asked by a guy that is severely obese (and this is after having had bariatric surgery 4years ago) why he can't get his weight under control and get rid of his huge gut.

One look at him and I can tell you that he is also estrogen dominate and testosterone deficient.

He whined to me, "Nothing seems to work. I do an hour of cardio everyday on an elliptical machine and I lift weights at the Y. Now my doctor tells me that I am a type 2 diabetic and have to take insulin along with my other meds."

OK, I've known this guy for 3 years. My Denise tells me that this guy's wife is always posting new recipes on facebook for brownies, cookies, and all kinds of other nutrient deficient, intestine clogging garbage that some people mistakenly call food. Eating garbage like that only serves to clog the colon and rob the body of any real nutrient absorption. His huge gut is caused by at least 30 pounds of impacted fecal matter in his intestines but probably a lot more.

On top of that this guys wife and kids are all fat and he is only 39 years old.

Look here's the deal. THE TRUTH STRAIGHT UP. A guy like that is not going to give up his slow form of suicide. He enjoys it too damn much. He is not willing to give up the garbage he eats and the ineffective exercise he does. He is part of the herd mentality. He asked me what to do and I told him the truth. "I'm not going to tell you anything because that will only add to your steady stream of confusion. You already know that the stuff that you, your wife and kids eat is slowly killing all of you. You're all fat (and yes I said "fat ") because of it and have multiple medical conditions caused by it. To top it off, you already know that the exercise you do is worthless because you're not seeing results. If you want to know what I teach...then buy it because you won't value what someone gives you. You need to put some "skin in the game ". He then said, "Can't you tell me anything to get started?" I responded, "Sure I can but 3 years ago when you asked me what to do, I told you then and you didn't act on anything. All you need to do is remember what I told you then and act on it.' He then said, "Well, I can't do Push-ups. It's too boring." To which I replied, "I'd think being fat and out of shape and having to take a dozen pills a day would get boring real fast."


Here's the deal friends. I have not been writing 'Living Strength' for people that are part of the "herd mentality". "The herd" is being thinned by the elite. Wake up and smell the coffee (make it organic coffee) . The only people that will survive what is to come will be those that are intelligent, self directed, capable of critical thinking and willing to go against the mainstream by developing and maximizing their logic, common sense and especially intuition.

One more point. You're all welcome to question anything I say or do in "Living Strength" but I am Living Proof of what I teach.

John,I think that his problem is obvious. I would be willing to bet that his mother was a "feeder" who liked the control that she felt by giving him food when he was emotionally upset to make him feel better,but also to increase his emotional dependence on her. In the process she created a lifelong emotion / food dependence cycle.

I would also bet that he married the emotional duplicate of his mother [many men do ], who also liked a weak man that she could control with food., The scenario plays out from that point.

I knew of an extremely obese woman who developed her eating psychosis as a child being scolded for not "cleaning her plate." Eventually she got professional help, came to grips with her eating problem, took control of her problem eating and over time her weight returned to normal ,

Your friend needs to seek out professional psychological help or get a divorce to save his life. Gordon

Hello Gordon,

First off, I never said the guy was my friend.

I realize that what I wrote sounds very harsh. But a little background here may be in order.

This guy is his own worst enemy and he is a jerk to boot. Worse yet, he's a rotten example to his son.

His son actually came to me 2 years ago when he was 13 after being bullied in school and asked me for help. Within 2 months his son was developing very well following the program I put him on and at that point I had shown him a few extremely effective self defense moves so that he could defend himself from 3 bullies at his school. Within the first few weeks his father came to me complaining because his son didn't want to eat the food the rest of the family ate. He also told me that he didn't like how his son was becoming obsessed with his body and telling his mother and him what they should eat and worse yet the kid told his old man that he should start following my program.

Finally, the day came that the kid got in a fight with one of the bullies. He did exactly what I taught him to do which was to not say a word but when the guy attempts to slap you, you attack with what I am teaching you and he won't know what hit him. The boy was expelled for a few days and had to go to court for assault. He was exonerated.

But, now get this, his old man saw it all as bad that his son developed the balls to stand up for himself and believed that my influence on his son was all bad. Bottom line: The poor kid ended up being forced to go to an anger management class and being told what a bad influence I was on him. So the kid gave up himself.

Bottom line: The poor whiner couldn't stand to see his son develop a set of balls and stand up for himself so he killed his sons aspirations. That my friend is inexcusable. i don't have time for anyone like that.

John,That is really a toxic environment. The situation that you describe is not as rare as you might think that it would be. I have been single a long time and come in contact with a lot of families on all levers of society. I must admit that I still have trouble accepting the way that some families treat each other and particularly when it comes to the children. I think that you would be surprised at how many people remain in horrible situations and don't seek help just because they can't stand to be alone . Gordon

Hello Gordon,


I know that you are 100% correct Gordon. But the thing that really gets to me is that this guy hides behind his Bible and is always trying to come off as sanctimonious.

I felt bad for his son being humiliated and as a minister of the Gospel I thought it was only right and fitting that the bullies be put in their place, a little justice served and Nate's self esteem elevated. His old man thought I was teaching his son to be "prideful" as he put it, rather than to realize that he is a person of worth. He tried to get me to apologize for teaching his son to fight like that. "Nathan could have killed that boy because of you." To which I responded, "No, that wasn't in the cards, I told him to stop when the threat was removed. But on second thought, Go screw yourself. You should ashamed for turning your son into a wimp."

Truth to tell, for all I know he was probably afraid that his son would start taking an interest in girls or that they might start taking an interest in him. As it is he doesn't have to worry. The poor kid accepted his father's spiritual bullying and personally I think the idiot father should be taken to the wood shed for what he has done to his son.

I have zero sympathy for that moron. But great empathy for Nathan. And by the way, I hope David reads this.

Definition of insanity.....doing the same thing over and over and expecting the same results, if I were this man John I would take your advise and run with it, the man sounds like he's his own worse enemy and when confronted with sound,logical advise not only does he pass on it he attacks it!

Hello Dynmite1986,

It's one thing for an idiot to remain in his self induced stupor and stand in his own way but it's another when that same idiot intentionally destroys his own son's aspirations for self improvement by telling him that he must accept what he is. Bull shit!

Once again David, if you read this, ask yourself if there is anything about you, with your total lack of self discipline and self control that makes your supposed faith attractive to anyone? Why? What is there about you that anyone would even remotely want to emulate? Read 1 Corinthians 9:24-27


Quote:
24 Donít you realize that in a race everyone runs, but only one person gets the prize? So run to win! 25 All athletes are disciplined in their training. They do it to win a prize that will fade away, but we do it for an eternal prize. 26 So I run with purpose in every step. I am not just shadowboxing. 27 I discipline my body like an athlete, training it to do what it should. Otherwise, I fear that after preaching to others I myself might be disqualified.


Your son wanted to become a fearless, self confident man and all you could do was ridicule him. You sir are an imbecile.

The most difficult part of changing are the people around you- both friend and foe. You acquired them in your current emotional state and they all have their own ideas of who you should be - some thoughts are conscious and some subconscious. Conscious change can be a total life changing event.

MENTAL MAGNETS............Ē Our minds become magnetized with the dominating thoughts we hold in our minds and these magnets attract to us the forces, the people, the circumstances of life which harmonize with the nature of our dominating thoughts."

Hey Friends,

I received two e-mails about 5 minutes apart relating to this thread.

One accused me of being a "Heartless Son of a Bitch" that asked to be removed from from the forum which I gladly complied with.

And then the other, that made my day, read : "Are you on a Dr. Moore administered IV drip?"

Three guesses and two don't count as to who sent me that one. I laughed and laughed but when I read the thread again, I certainly understood the question.

Hey Everyone,

My friend Doc Moore has a way of cutting through Red Tape and BS and getting to the point.

The intelligent immediately grasp and appreciate. The idiots begrudgingly understand and hate it.

Quote:
Example:

Fat + Carbs = the fastest way to create obesity in any animal model, including humans.

If protein is low there is less satiety.

Carbs turn on fat storage and prevent fat burning. All of the fat goes straight to the adipocytes and stays there forever. Perfect combo. Much better than just carbs or fat by itself.

The most fattening foods are high carb and high fat together.


Bottomline: Quickest way to get fat and stay fat: High concentrations of refined carbs and highly saturated animal fats. I once knew a guy in the early 80's that ran 15 miles a day, an avid marathon marathoner. He'd go to Sebsation Joe's and get a hand packed quart of Vanilla Malt Ice Cream every day. I watched as he piled on a pound of fat each day on his scrawny frame and in less than two months became the penultimate skinny fat guy that couldn't get it up. He went to his doctor because of his sudden impotence and the doctor said his cholesterol levels were off the chart. Back then they didn't have Viagra so they put him on cholesterol meds. And guess what--That only added insult to injury.

Truth: You need fat in order for your body to create Male Hormone but you an abundance of the right fat minus the sugar and refined carbs, Smart people go very light on grains and even lighter on sugar.
