How to Lose 60 Pounds in One Year

My journey from morbid obesity to merely overweight. If you’ve ever wondered how to lose a lot of weight, fast.

The Steps

  1. Gain a lot of weight. It’s easier to lose weight, when you have a lot to lose.
  2. Develop metabolic syndrome. It’ll make life painful, and your clothes, ill-fitting.
  3. Get Type 2 diabetes, and imagine dying with an amputation and failing kidneys.
  4. Get a meter to test blood glucose.
  5. Go on a low carbohydrate diet. Learn “safe” foods.
  6. Join an online support group. You’ll learn some recipes and techniques.
  7. Eat less, and watch the pounds melt away.
  8. Exercise. I didn’t really do much, but everyone says you need to exercise.
  9. Watch your friend get sicker and sicker from the problems related to uncontrolled diabetes, and die from it.

  1. I have seen those $89 “air conditioners” at Walgreen’s and Walmart for less that $40.

  2. My wife is recovering from double hip surgery. I have to feed myself. I am also Diabetic Type 2 heart patient with cancer (active but controlled) who needs to loose weight. I would really appreciate it if someone would give me a “easy to make” daily list (same food every day is definitely OK and indeed preferred) of quick meals to make for myself. For instance, Breakfast: Bowl of cereal with 2% milk. Lunch Turkey sandwich on Rye Bread. Dinner: Chicken, green beans and Brussel Sprouts with a small salad. I know these choices might not be correct. Please help me if you can. I’ll follow it to the letter.

  3. My diet is something like this: morning: pan fried/steamed veggies, leftovers, egg. Lunch: leftovers, maybe a salad. Dinner: steamed or pan fried veggies, a big salad (during non-covid epidemics), a piece of meat. Sometimes, I have soup. I know this seems boring, but that’s what I eat. There are ideas and some recipes throughout this blog.

    When I started out, I had 1/3 to 1/2 of my plate filled with meat. Now, it’s 1/4 to 1/3. That’s the big change.
