Hold on, “Lose 50 lbs. Fast without any Exercise?” What’s that got to do with the Philippines? Well, nothing. This is a post that puts the “Plus” in “Philippines Plus.” This article is a shameless plug for one of my latest books that I have for sale on Amazon and Kindle.
Lose 50 lbs. Fast without any Exercise
I’ve been writing about life in the Philippines for over eight years now. In fact, I’ve authored over 1,400 posts about the archipelago. However, writing about the Philippines is a niche market. There’s only so many people that want to move to the Philippines. And there’s only so many expats living in “paradise” that this blog would appeal to.
But who doesn’t want to know how to lose weight? Thus, I decided to write “Lose 50 lbs. Fast without any Exercise.” The books shows how you can lose over 50 lbs. in 10 weeks.
I give you the scoop on how I lost over 53 pounds in 10 weeks without any exercise. In fact, I lost almost 25% of my total body fat.
Here’s a sample preview of the book, “Lose 50 lbs. Fast without any Exercise”:
CHAPTER 1. THE “PREGNANT” GUY
At six feet tall and 219 pounds I was overweight. Obese. My loving Filipina wife, concerned for my health, constantly reminded me of my burgeoning belly. I knew I was overweight, fat. Five years earlier I was in the best physical shape in my entire life; I was going to the gym.
My American wife had divorced me. I decided a lifestyle change was in order.
Joining that fitness club was a lifesaver for me at the time. Lifting weights and doing cardiovascular workouts was an extremely great stress reliever.
But those gym rat days ended after I went to the Philippines and got married. After my new wife joined me nine months later in the States, I “let myself go,” a familiar excuse for weight gain. But really, I didn’t need much of a reason to stuff myself with junk food.
Though at age 40 I was in the best shape of my life, I now was without a doubt, in the worst shape ever. But I really didn’t care. I had become quite lazy.
The Pregnant Remark Stings
One evening my wife informed me that I looked “pregnant.” I wasn’t ecstatic when I heard that remark. My wife, who used to be overweight years before our marriage, had no problem telling her Filipino relatives that they, too, were “fat.”
My partner wasn’t being mean. My better half is one of the sweetest people you could ever know. But diplomatic? No one would ever accuse her of that.
Personally, I have sense enough not to call any female fat. I recall a Hallmark Shoebox Greeting card I once read. It depicted a male dinosaur conversing with a female dinosaur who was wearing a white dress with polka dots.
The female asked: “Do I look fat in this dress?”
The male responded “yes.”
I opened the card. The male dinosaur was knocked out, sprawled on the ground with this caption underneath: “The reason dinosaurs are extinct.”
But my spouse kept making comments about my weight having no regard for the fact that even as a man I might have feelings. Most of the time I would just agree with her and keep watching the television. Here’s the rub: I would lose weight when I wanted to lose weight. No amount of nagging or prodding would make any difference. In fact, it had the opposite effect. I don’t like to be told what to do.
Late night snacks were my downfall. I wasn’t a drinker but I certainly enjoyed my nightly, after dinner, snacks, especially on the weekends.
My “4-10” shift at my employer, AT&T, meant I worked 10 hours a day four days a week. Since I had every Friday, Saturday and Sunday off, I essentially had a three-day weekend every week. That gave me more opportunities for even more late night snacking.
My wife would go shopping with her Filipina friends every Saturday and that would leave me in the house all alone until 10 pm. Saturday night. I would be parked in front of our TV watching British sitcoms on the local public television station out of Champaign, Illinois, WILL.
By the time the last program of the evening started, “The Red Green Show,” I had devoured an entire Tombstone pizza. No wonder I was so fat!
