IMO some simple steps that should be taken first by anyone that is obese.
1. Get a check up and make sure you are not going to croak if you start to do some activity.
2. Think of things that you would not mind doing such as walks in the park, free walking tours in your city or cities close by that may interest you. Find outdoor concerts you would like dancing at, walks at sunrise or sunset and so on. (The real "exercise" can come later the idea being getting some one to do something more than they currently are.)
3. Keep you grocery shopping to the exterior of the grocery store, ie meats, produce and clean dairy(not 30g sugar yogurt). Use spices to create flavors you like and can live with.
These steps should get you to at the minimum feel better. Once you start to feel better you can tackle some more advanced techniques. Do this for a year and see where your at.
Is it the answer, no, is it a start and doable by anyone HELL YES.
I am equally impressed by all three. All three are inherently unhealthy and to be blunt stupid. I hope you can tell I am not being sarcastic.
The act of eating 63 hot dogs in 60 seconds and shooting heroin is not the same. What I was speaking to was their ability to eat those large amounts of foods In that period of time. Anyone can snort a large amount of coke. Anyone. But very few people can eat 63 hot dogs in 60 seconds. That's what's impressive. I wasn't speaking to it being healthy or not.
Furthermore If you want to talk about it being healthy the top level guys that do this don't eat like that year round and if you can present any science that says what they do during competitions causes them to be less "healthy" than the rest of us then you have a point, but you don't know that to be true.
Hopefully that helps you understand, I didn't think it was that difficult to understand in the first place, but I guess I was wrong.
I can't even believe I am still talking about this lol.
I have to say again its not impressive shoveling that much food down your throat. It's absolutely disgusting and shameful.
