The 450 pound challenge

Today we’re talking about weight, and it’s an insightful one. Enjoy.


I forget where I read it, but it was online somewhere.

A man was introducing himself in a forum of sorts. I didn’t particularly pay attention to his age, background, occupation, status and so on, but one number that got my immediate attention was ‘450’ followed by ‘pounds’.

Unless you’re a Divine Being, you don’t weigh 450 pounds and look jacked.

You’re fat.


I further remember reading something about ‘life got the better of me’ or something else like that.

It was just dumb.

Sure, we all have our ups and downs in life. I remember a time when life got the better of me. I was in a deep financial crisis. Had a big mortgage that I needed to pay down, alimony that needed to be sorted out, a potential lawsuit that could have materialized, all kinds of bills to pay, rent, fuel, food, power, cable, etc.

In other words, I was soaked in bills.

But I didn’t gain weight.

I didn’t allow myself to gain weight.

Here’s an important point I want to make that a lot of people seem to be missing out on.

If you’re poor and you don’t have much money, you can still put on weight simply by stopping working out and eating unhealthy and cheaper foods. It is much easier than what you think.

All you need to do is eat an overload of processed carbohydrates which are cheap; bread, pasta, different pastries and sugary soft drinks.

I know this because I did it to myself during another period of my life.

And it surely made my weight skyrocket. In a little less than 3 months I believe I’d put on a whopping 30 or so pounds of fat.

This time around though, I wouldn’t allow it. I decided right there, right then that I may be broke, but I surely wasn’t going to allow myself to get fat.

And thus I actually slimmed down quite a bit.

Anyway, you can probably guess the point of the story.

The 450 pound fattie (Yes, I’m a little rude) clearly needed some guidance and tough love in his life. I believe he went on to write that he was ‘only’ at 300 pounds or something now. Still a long way to go, but he’s getting there.

I don’t know what was wrong with his head, but he needed some proper motivation.

A way of ‘rewiring’ his brain into wanting to stay fit.

A nootropic, for example.

Such as [REDACTED].

I’m not saying he’d slim down just by taking the supplement, but he’d indeed get all the focus he needed on shedding weight, if that were one of his goals.

And if you struggle with motivation, try [REDACTED] yourself.

Get it right here:



And that’s about it.

I dare say most people who allow themselves to increase in weight really struggle with motivation. I see a lot of people claiming that ‘obesity is a disease’ and ‘there are other factors than just laziness and sloth’ that you need to take into account.

I disagree. I believe obesity is something that can be dealt with accordingly. All you need is the proper motivation to do so.
