Everyone loves a good monster movie. Godzilla, King Kong, Rodan, and the other Kaiju ( a Japanese word for giant rampaging monsters), are legendary characters who went from one end of the world to the other stomping on buildings and destroying everything in their path.
As scary and monstrous as these movie idols have been over the decades, it’s nothing like when a person is forced to lose weight. People who have to lose weight can turn into monsters no movie can equal. If you or a family member or friend has been told by doctors to lose the fat, you’re probably quite familiar with what can happen to a person’s emotional state.

If we’re suffering from an illness that is weight related, losing the excess fat means a total change in one’s lifestyle. The changes can be so drastic that it can cause a person to lose their cool.
Doctors know some people can’t take the new orders to diet and exercise right. A debate or even a fight can break out when the physician dishes out the bad news. People get fat due to sedentary lifestyles and eating too much. It’s that simple. When people are used to pigging out and laying around on their asses it takes a miraculous motivation to get them into a healthy lifestyle.
It can be as bad as pulling teeth. Some people will come up with the most ridiculous excuses to not engage n fitness and diet. They’ll claim how their parents are fat and eat all day and are healthy or how they have ‘big bones’ which makes them look fat. The bottom line is they’re either too irresponsible to maintain good health or they’re lazy or just arrogant. Ignorance plays a big part of this as well as kids aren’t taught the value of good nutrition and exercise in schools.
Sodas, donuts, cakes, pies are loaded with calories. We often chug these things down because they’re so available and affordable. Not only that, but they’re tasty. It doesn’t take long for a person who falls into this trap to start putting on the excess pounds and ending up with medical complications that can lead to disability or even death.
Diets And Danger
Dieting is the first step to chaos and danger. There is nothing more dangerous on the planet Earth than a human being who is hungry. Humans will eat anything when they’re hungry and it’s led to wars and strife throughout history. Today’s modern man will possibly go into a nightmarish rampage if he’s asked to cut the calories. They’ll stomp their feet and get into arguments with anyone within arm’s reach.
This is due to two things, not being able to handle hunger and the feeling of psychological loss when one’s favorite foods are forbidden. People reward themselves with that doughnut and cookie. Before they know it, they’ve crammed so many down that their bodies don’t burn off the excess calories and the fat just keeps piling on.
The Real Deal About Fat
You’ve probably seen the endless number of miracle fat cures and products on the markets. Celebrities will endorse these things and recommend everything from pre-made dinners to supplements. Let us be clear right here and now, it’s all a scam.
The only way to lose fat is to not eat so much! It’s no more complicated than that. The body uses a specific amount of calories each day to perform its functions. Any excess calories go unused and are stored as fat. That’s it. Plain and simple. When a person eats far more calories than the body needs, a person gets fat. Bruning off the excess calories from exercise, but getting people to exercise is equally a challenge. People love to be lazy. Being lazy is a national pastime in the United States. This is why we have more fat people than any other country in their world. Being fat is the #1 cause of death in America.
Excess fat causes diabetes, bone disorders, cardiovascular and respiratory illnesses, it affects sight and hearing and sexual function. It’s only when a person laying around in the hospital on the edge of the unknown that they’ll finally realize they need to get rid of the fat and adopt a healthier lifestyle.
No, Losing Fat Is Not Easy At First
The minute a person realizes they’ve got to change in order to lose their excess fat, the dread and anxiety arises. It need not be so. If you understand nutrition you’ll soon discover that you can eat like a pig and not get fat. As a matter of fact, if you had to eat all the food that is healthy and nutritious during your day, you would wear yourself out.
Only top athletes can eat that much nutritional food and not wear their jaw bones down. It’s because food that is high in fiber, vitamins, and minerals may be of more bulk than the regular calorie laden stuff people eat. You can eat a pound of doughnuts and end up with a 5,000 calorie a day diet. If you kept it up you would get ill which happens quite often in America. On the other hand, highly nutritious food can weigh 3 pounds but have a caloric count of 1,000 calories. On average a grown human male will need around 2,500 calories a day. A woman around 1,500.
Knowing what your caloric intake should be is the starting point. Don’t compare yourself with other people. Let your doctor determine what your caloric intake is. Even if you’re 20lbs overweight, if you just start eating a wee bit less of your daily caloric intake you will automatically lose fat.
It’s just that simple.
Let The Rampaging Begin!
If you have a friend or family member who now has to change their diet and lifestyle, you had better be ready for the rampaging.
Some people just cannot handle hunger. They lose their minds and start terrorizing everyone and everything in sight. It doesn’t have to be this way if things are planned right.
You can assimilate a new diet without missing a hunger beat. It comes from planning. If you have to give up cake for apples or peaches, then make sure you’ve got the fruits around within arm’s reach. Carry a bag of nuts, grains, fruits wherever you go. You can eat a ton of these kinds of foods and not gain a pound.
As a matter of fact, you will lose weight automatically as these foods, eaten at r3egular intervals will increase your metabolism and you’ll burn off the fat.
I Want To Eat What I Want To Eat!
That declaration is what dooms so many people. Arrogance will do you in if you’re not going to see the writing on the wall that you’re in danger of being overweight. Being told you shouldn’t eat certain foods or dishes can send a person over the fence in hostility.
This is something you’re going to have to get a grip on because if you don’t follow doctor’s orders, you might as well call it quits right now.
Sure you would love to eat that big pile of lasagna your mom made. You know you have to eat all of it or she’ll be insulted. Yes, your wife’s rice pudding is tasty and a favorite and it makes her happy when you spoon endless amounts of it down your gullet, but in the end is she aware that she’s slowly killing you?
“I work for a living and eat what I want!”, is another idiotic thing. It’s arrogance plain and simple. There’s no justification for eating like a pig if you’re eating foods that are high in calories, salt, and sugar. The only way you’ll lose weight and do so properly is through proper planning and following a strict regimen.
You may be your own man, but that means you’ve no one to blame when you end up on the floor of the emergency room looking like a worn out Thanksgiving turkey.
The bottom line here is that you don’t have to go monster because you’ve got to lose weight. Proper planning will make the transition so smooth you might not notice the changes right off. A smart diet will avoid the pains of hunger and a good exercise program will ensure a healthy lifestyle that one can be appreciative of.
So don’t be a monster, diet, and exercise right and you’ll be okay.
