Hi, I hope you can help me.
My husband is obese. He is 6 feet tall and weighs 236 pounds, mostly in his stomach, neck and face. He also has a lot of muscle. He wants to lose weight but thinks that walking once a week for hours at a time and starving himself will do it. Except for lettuce or spinach salad, he refuses to eat any veggies and will only eat a handful of fruits. He drinks tons of soda, eats candy like a kid, and will not eat breakfast. I am very worried because he takes after his mother physically and everyone on her side dies early of strokes and heart attacks. He is 44 and I am seriously afraid of losing my husband. I have tried to tell him he must eat better, tried to explain how metabolism works, but I don't think he believes me.
Could you please explain to him, in simple terms, why starving yourself just makes you fatter and eats up muscle? Is there anything I can feed him that will help him lose weight and substitute is lack of vegetables? Any advice to him or to me would be greatly appreciated.
It's an interesting situation when you are (rightly) worried about your husband starving himself while he eats tons of sweets and doing so, consumes a lot of calories that are empty since there's no nutrients in those "foods".
From all my experience, I know that relying on willpower is bound to failing and that there are ways to find one of many plans that'd change the very metabolism.
For one thing, if you can manage to tempt your husband to try to stick with one of such plans for just one week, his cravings for sweets would be gone and his appetite would become a healthy one so there'll be no need to control his calorie intake at all.
Why wouldn't you take a look at our program, it's completely free and only requires weekly feedbacks to continue for a month or even longer if necessary. We have 92 percent success rate and practically 100 percent craving disappearance. Your husband would be happy to figure out in time, that skipping breakfasts is no sin and is even very helpful tool within our program. This is backed up by serious research and will be explained to him.
