  • No, there was a trainer a while back that did the same to help his obese patient gain some motivation, as they worked together to lose the weight

  • This is to share my weight loss journey and thanks to you for the inspiration.
    I lost 13 pounds in last 11 months, it sounds slow but I am so glad that I have achieved this through intermittent fasting, 24-48hrs water fasting, LCHF diet and mild exercise. it’s been an amazing journey from 6 meals (3 big and 3 snacks low fat diet) to OMAD (one meal a day). The biggest surprise was that I am losing fat from all parts like arms, belly and hips, but not from my face and bust line which was completely opposite what I experienced 10 years back when I was in UK with LCLF (low carbs low fat) diet and rigorous exercise almost 5-6 days a week. I enjoyed this transformation as well but once I was back in India, I couldn’t continue gym and gained back what I lost. Though my lifestyle changed from sugar laden meals to no sugar at all and occasional rice meals as we Indians love eating rice. I was always overweight but i started my weight loss journey in my 30s and now in 40s I was determined to find a sustainable way of losing and maintaining weight. I am glad that my brother introduced me to bullet coffee and Keto diet legends like you on YouTube. So big thanks to my bro and YouTube legends like you giving us an opportunities to understand the vast and new information on Keto and sustainable weight management options.
    My Tricks that worked on me are
    0. I plan and cook my food from whole food with saturated fats like mustard oil, coconut oil, clarified butter, butter etc.
    0. I make sure that I move around a bit but depends on the day schedule
    0. If I have socialising events coming up I fast the previous day and the following day to hit a balance and I just love it.

  • Exercise is not always the Solution, Water Fasting is a great tool to learn to lose weight Naturally with out killing your self in the GYM, to water fast you need to train your body and mind for it, also keep in mind that sugar cravings are your number one Enemy, if you give in to sugar then you have broken water fast, here is something you guys can do to kill Parasites and lose weight at the same time, Its called Diatomaceous earth food grade, and you can buy it at its around $12 to $20 dollars, start with a small amount of it, 1/4 of a tablespoon and add it to 12 oz of water and drink it, and drink lots of water trow out the day otherwise you will feel Dry, weight your self a couple of times per week but dont stress, dont lose more than 10 pounds per mouth because you run into problems with lose skin. 8 pounds a month is perfect, this is a long journey, your goal should be 2 or 3 years, just calculate 8×12=96 =1 year

  • I had a horrible experience with a trainer when I was already 80 lbs down (around 212 lbs) and they totally didn’t understand or care to understand my eating disorder or help me with my nutrition.

  • Thank you for this great to see that you recognise people’s struggles with food and understand that everyone is different. I love exercise but struggle with over eating and that very full feeling is my normal. I need a trainer like you ����

  • I wait to know that i am just 16 years old and i m gonna be 17 in may and i have gained weight and i am a student now I think that i am gaining weight too early i dont wanna be obese so can you tell me what a student can do to maintain his weight and to be obese

  • arr i hate clip where people bla bla bla bla. i though it s a clip with picture, a story with it s protagonist on video, see the defference of 100kg to 70kg not a man who talk infinite time

  • #torqueback I’m starting to get into road racing but I don’t have access to a car, I’m considering getting the train to within 10/20 miles of races and then riding to the start, is there a way I can use this ride to the race as a warm up?

  • I really like you because it is true people always assume just because I am obese i cannot do certain things but it is not true I actually am really able to reach and stuff like that. Also yes just because someone is obese doesn’t mean they eat alot!!! Dang you are so smart!! Great trainer

  • I’m not a personal trainer but everything you’ve said here is spot on. Ive carried myself from 400 lbs to right now I’m in the low 200s and I’ve learned so much and this is so true everything you’ve said here. I still get looks when I smoke people in the gym. Lol. Thank you for this info!!

  • Your so right!! It was hard for me to eat a lot. Meeting my macros and calories was always hard for me. And i can run as fast as a skinny person..lot of personal trainers i had judge. Think because im a big girl i cant do alot.

  • Thank you for this. I’m 5’6″ 250 pounds and I did a spartan run and completed this with only a month of conditioning…even though I planned to train for 9 months. I am very athletic, just eat bad and am only productive when I’m competing against myself or others. So most of my turn off happens when people plan me based on an overall criteria. I’m always either under stimulated or over worked and both cause me to say fuck it.

  • i dont eat much all day besides a morning coffee n a snack and then i eat carbs at night, usually take away and other rubbish.. this is so hard and has been so hard for me for years

  • I just joined gym. I scheduled an he training and the trainer gave me two minutes of his time. He same get on bike 10 minutes and walked away. Came back and said get on tread mill 10 minutes and left then put me on elliptical standing machine 10 minutes and walked away then 8 minutes in said ok come to front desk. When do you want to schedule again? I said wait a minute. Isn’t this a one he session? Then he started stuttering? Ummm well this is just a stress test and then I’ll see you once a month and you just follow what I write. I told him listen I didn’t came and schedule a session with you to walk on tread mill for ten minutes so he said want to schedule again? I said well I have to think about this because the chart says one he session he just cut me short and walked away from me and left me standing. I turn around and he started training someone else. He had a 3 person scheduled for that day but I was the only one schedule for the whole day. No one else was on list. I’ve never felt so embarrassed in my life. So I went straight to the weights and machines on my own.

  • Thank you so much for this video… it’s exactly what i needed to hear…all this advice is going to help and motivate me to get myself right…thank you thank you..God bless you Sir

  • I appreciate that you addressed number two on your list. I speak about that in my situation. I do not eat all day. I eat at the end of the day and it’s not always healthy. You did a great job with educating those that THINK they know why I am overweight. Thanks much.

  • I love the videos, as I am always trying to help clients as sensibly as possible. All the new trainers I work with, say I killed this client, or that a client could not walk for 4 days I hate that approach. I am training a 400lb client tomorrow and I am busy working on ideas today, as the client is also very very tall, some machines will even be too small.

  • Amazing video! Coming from someone who is interested in making personal training a business���� really valuable information to know

  • I think this video forgot to include how to help trainers understand that helping someone who is overweight doesnt mean shaming them for “choosing to let themselves get that big” punishment in working out isnt condusive to overall success for the client or trainer.

  • I’ve bought my first bike in January, sort of a 50th birthday gift to me. I’ve always eaten well but big meals and no breakfast had taken it’s toll. I do spinning twice a week and try to ride another 3 times. Since Jan I’ve reduced my quantity on one plate and have started to have breakfast I have lost 2 stone so far and now weighing 17 stone. I would say the biggest change I have and everyone could make is reduced volumes, everything in moderation.

  • Thank you. Thank you so much. Your obese clients must love your insight.

    I’m a big guy, my heart is doing 130+BPM just walking at a slow pace. Asking me to jog for 15 minutes on a treadmill is going to push that to 175+ (I’m 35+ so it’s practically MHR for me) results in me hanging out of my ass and needing to stop for 30 minutes to recover before I can even speak.

  • Great video and refreshing to see compassion and understanding of why overweight people, including myself, are completely intimidated about going to the gym etc. It’s the first time I’ve ever heard a personal trainer say that because I’m obese doesn’t mean I am not flexible. Being fit and active in the past, I have a strong core and know how to use the muscles which means I can do more than many expect. It’s ironic that most exercise routines are needed by obese people the most yet many feel they can’t access it. Doing a routine where you can’t do anything and end up in complete pain then and for days after is the worst feeling and saps all your confidence and motivation. I wish you could be my personal trainer. Let’s hope others see your video and take note ��

  • Thank you from the bottom I’d my heart. I am obese and have been trying to lose weight. My last boot camp trainer would humiliate me in front of class to motivate me. I felt worthless and had to drop out for my sanity. I am now doing it on my own.

  • #torqueback Please help! why cant I relax on the bike? Anytime I try and ride with vigor or even at a mild pace I seem to tense my right shoulder so bad that it is the first thing to fatigue and start feeling very uncomfortable. Is it me? my posture? my bike? I try and consciously make the decision to relax but as soon as I need to pedal hard I naturally tense up in my shoulders without even realizing.

  • If I did this kind of work out everyday mixed with a couple other things (prob 20 minute workout), would that help me shave off a few pounds? My time is limited so I’m pretty much relying on will power to wake up earlier to get a workout in before going to work

  • Im big and I wish I wasn’t so scared of going to the gym. Like, I get in the mood to workout and hype myself up to be happy and then you get to the gym and see people stare, point and laugh. So right now im doing stuff at home in hopes that I can lose enough weight to be confident enough to go to the gym.

  • I think trainer’s should help clients…start with nutrition meals��Because,I don’t care how long you in a gym exercise….it want help nothing? If your nutrition is not good��

  • I agree with you on potentially misjudging clients level of conditioning based on their weight. I’ve been surprised at times when I’m performing fitness assessments for larger clients who are more cable than I initially thought.

  • I’m just learning to be a PT now but I have to ask… Isn’t it out of our scope of practice to give nutrition advise? Shouldn’t we refer them to a registered dietitian?

  • As a previously obese client myself, I really appreciated my former trainer who respected me and knew that I could go hard despite my weight. Very good video from a client’s perspective as well. Thanks!

  • Thank you for this. There’s a lot of embarrassment involved and this kind of strong confidence while still being firm and honest is really helpful to hear. I would kill to know a trainer like you!

  • #AskGCNTrainging #torqueback Hey I’ve just got into cycling regularly in last 5 months and really love it. I want to cycle large distances and see some lovely scenery but am not really interested in getting particularly faster or technically better. I plan to cycle over Europe and UK in Summer, would you still recommend all the training or will I be fine doing super long rides as a casual cyclist. Cheers

  • Respect. Very much a true trainer i would love to work with, from the bottom of my heart and soul I send you my spiritual respect.

  • I’m a plus size Zumba Fitness instructor. I have signed up for certification in my city this summer to continue my education.
    Thank you for this video. I am hoping to come up with a fitness routine to help me loose the weight further… And help others as well.

  • My wife is well over 250 and just got her a gym membership with me she wants to hit weights but my question shouldn’t she do less weight but alot of reps?? and of course food diet

  • I love your videos, very informative. However, have you noticed that you always point to the wrong place for the links to your other videos?! LOL. I think that is funny. Either way, i enjoy your content and will always be a fan.

  • I’m 36, 175lbs., started at 300. now I’m still working out and getting certified as a trainer. I found my passion and you guys can do it!!! the whole time I didn’t think I could and then I was there

  • Well said. The problem with Personal Trainers is they don’t know what it’s like to be unfit because fitness comes easy to them. If they had to do something that was slightly challenging (away from fitness) they would give up in an instant. A bigger person’s body does not metabolise food at the same rate as a slimmer person. The problem is not theirs but once you know that we metabolise food at a slower rate or we store fat easily then we will need to make different choices to compensate for the slower metabolism, which will mean checking portion sizes and making healthier food choices because we unfortunately are not built the same as a slimmer person who can get away with leading an unhealthier lifestyle.
    If we lived in Antarctica we would have the perfect physique & metabolism and we would be on the cover of all the magazines.

    Being overweight means we cannot hide your difference where as slimmer person can hide their differences & insecurities because their differences/insecurities may not be external.
    Let’s turn people inside out and give them transparent heads so we really see who has the problem.

    Don’t give up, I still struggle with my weight and it is a life long battle but one that is winnable.
