You’ll feel really good about yourself. 5 GOOD reasons for losing weight. In the end, the most popular incentives — scary disease statistics and fitness industry vanity trips — aren’t very effective, useful, or scientifically valid ways to promote weight loss. That’s a huge missed opportunity, because there are much better reasons to lose weight. It’s very easy to lose weight by making small changes like these, even if you love to eat.

We all love to eat; we just don’t need to eat as much as we think we do. Eat less, eat better, and you’ll notice an improvement not just in your weight and body size, but in your energy levels, mental clarity, moods, and overall health and well-being. Maybe you eat a bit too much during the holidays and gain a bit of weight, or you come down with the stomach flu and end up dropping a few pounds—a slight. Stress-eating is a surefire way to sabotage your weight-loss efforts. Instead, try meditation, yoga or, of course, hitting the gym. “If you’re under stress and don’t feel like you have enough time in the day, you should exercise because it will clear your mind and enable you to prioritize more easily,” says Matthew Kornblatt, a N.A.S.M.-certified personal trainer and owner of RightFit Nation.

Why it’s so difficult to lose weight: The hard truths. If you can’t seem to lose weight and keep it off, you might be falling victim to these six big mistakes. Unexplained weight loss, or losing weight without trying, can be a cause for concern. It might indicate an underlying condition.

  • I would like to ask a question, I have always been very skinny, I have a small skeletal frame, but the last couple of years I have got a big tummy and the dreaded man boobs, how should I go about things to lose weight in those areas, but not become a stick man lol, I have started at the gym, but not sure exactly what I should be doing. Thanks. Loving the videos by the way, keep it up.

  • God dang. I don’t why I stopped watching yours vids as soon as they came out. Amazing vids! I always feel like these videos are made directly to me. LOL.

  • thank you for the extra push to encourage me to start working out and eating right.. I’ll be starting my journey tomorrow! I’m super excited! I love you videos!!♡♡♡

  • You can still get illnesses and heart attacks when you’re not fat, so… that’s a lie. Yes, you’re more at risk when you’re fat etc… but it can still happen when you’re healthy.

  • You are absolutely correct, society does view obese people as having less value. Thumbs up for being courageous to state the obvious. I love your success story, and am inspired by your determination and honesty. Thank you!

  • Bruh I’m 11 and I’m 63kg
    I’m losing weight so I can be healthy and I’m watching this video to convince me to be determined to lose weight

  • I really like and relate to your advice, but I am wondering how to stop my own binge eating from stress. I started a new job in March and the commute is and hour there and back, but I’m still walking my dog 5 miles or more a day and running part of it, but the stress of this job is causing some real problems with my binge eating and adding that to exhaustion from the travel I just feel stuck because as soon as I’m done with the taking my dog out and eating I just pass out now. I am thinking I should just quit this job because I could do find without it, but then they also make you feel guilty for leaving, but I feel stuck.:( Kind of sucks.

  • Good advice and I can agree with all of them. Number 5 was a definite eye-opener that I noticed about 6 months ago or so colleagues, friends, even family suddenly started being more pleasant, respectful and basically nicer hell, women even flirt with me now (which I’m kinda enjoying…) and at first I was kinda annoyed but now I get it it’s not that they’re bad people, just everyone’s naturally wired like that. And it does make me appreciate the rare few people in my life that treated me like a human before I’d shifted the weight. I can count those people on one hand but hey ho!:)

  • Thanks for the encouragement, man. I’ve started working out regularly lately, and though I haven’t dropped many pounds yet, I can see and feel the changes in my body and mind. It helps so much hearing from someone who’s actually been on both sides and doesn’t look down on those still on their health journey. Seriously, thank you.

  • Another great video dude.

    For me personally, I don’t want to get “Ripped” I just want to lose weight and be healthier. Get as much of my mobility as I can back and put years back on my life. I’m a dad, I’m ok with a Dad Bod but at this point i’m more like the StayPuff Marshmallow man.

    I don’t like the gym, it’s true you are treated differently and that is the main reason I won’t go to a gym or won’t be caught dead in one, so I focus on what I’m doing now that I can do at home with DDP Yoga. I’ve been at it for 11wks now and I”m down 36lbs overall. I started at 382lbs I weighed in at 346lbs on Friday. I have a goal of 300lbs by August 29th and a goal of 250 by next summer.

    The hardest thing for me hasn’t been putting in the work on the mat, it’s been the food choices, educating myself in what to eat because there are soo many mixed opinions out there that the line gets really blurry on what’s opinion and whats fact. So the biggest thing I try to focus on is more out than in for calories.

    Weight loss is a 2 part process, the Physical work and the mental game. The Mental will always be the toughest.

    If you’re interested in DDPY check out the weekly updates I do on my journey.

  • One thing you mentioned during your video that I can really relate to is constantly having to adjust your clothes because they cling to you. I never realized how often I did that just to feel comfortable until I started losing weight and I was still pulling on my clothes subconsciously even though I didn’t need to do it anymore. I’ve gone from 288 to 230 and your vids keep me going strong whenever I have those food binge cravings or days I “just don’t feel like doing it anymore”. Keep it up!!!

  • This will be our year im planning on changing my ways too im trying to figure out why im doing this but i just need to change but there are a few reasons why i want to loose weight i just dont know my main but i just want to be active im pretty tired of not being able to do things. My legs get sore pretty quickly which makes it hard to go shopping, im usually out of shape whenever i go up 3 flights of stairs and im just not as confident as i should be but i don’t know if i just want to lose weight for attention or for myself but i want it to happen this year

  • Listening to my own body has been the most important thing for me. I tried doing a group class at my gym when I first joined. It was absolutely awful. I finished the class, but I could barely move for three days. NOPE.

  • The comment about how clothing feels is one of the biggest things for me with weight loss. When I was 55lbs heavier I struggled and agonized over what I was going to wear in the warmer weather, often giving up and not going out at all. It is the best now to be able to put on any outfit and be comfortable with how I look and feel!

  • So I’m almost 17 and I am 1m70. My biggest weight was 82 kg. Now I weigh 77kg. I still wannae lose 12. But I already noticed my clothes fit better and I get more attention from boys.

  • Just started back at the gym, and just got back under 300 pounds. One of the benefits I’m looking forward to, that I will be reaping a few years from now, is to look like a burly rpg character. I can also do the Bane voice from Dark Knight Rises spot on, and I’m already rockin the bald head, so the ability to pull off a Bane Cosplay would be cool.

  • I’ve lost weight and family and freinds have noticed and said “well done,”. At the moment I’m looking at why I should stay healthy and this guy gave me 5 reasons. One reason why is for me to have more energy to do a lot of things during the day.

  • I agree with all your points and I am 3 weeks into my weight loss and I have lost over 5 inches off my entire body in 2 and a half weeks and I am super proud of myself. I just have a really big problem with my family. None of them really know or want to eat properly and so I am constantly butting heads with them. My brother is super skinny and doesn’t eat nearly enough for someone of his age and height. My mother has a lot of weight around her waist and now has high blood pressure and she is in denial about the salt in her diet. Whenever I cook they complain that my food has no taste or that there are too many vegetables. They are part of the reason that I end up gaining all my weight back when I have lost it in the past. What should I do?

  • The things he said are very true. One thing I notice is how women treat you. When I put almost 90 pounds on my sex life went way down but when I lost it women treated me different sad to say but thats just how the world is!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Reason #1 hits home with me. Was diagnosed with diabetes 2 years ago shortly after my 30th birthday. I weighed 286ish. My heaveiest ever. Thought i was just going to be destined to fighting a losing battle with it for the rest of my life. Tried a little to control it, but just wasnt ready. Ended up having some complications at the beginning of last year and spent the day in ICU…you would think that would be enough to get me to change…nope… lost maybe 25 pounds over the rest of the year and started this year around 255-260ish…. something has clicked…. i am now eating fairly right, A1C is down to normal range. Have been taken off some of my medication. Im in the gym 4-5 days a week, and i was down to 225 as of this morning. Dr wants me to try and get to 190 range, but is happy with my numbers and progress has is. I found this channel about a month into my journey and it has completely changed the way I am approaching all of this. It is helping me stay on track and has really helped me focus and know what I want to accomplish. Thanks Ben for all you do.

  • I absolutely agree with point five. Back when I was obese I had a very fit looking boyfriend (genetics blessed him!) and I had multiple times where other women would look at him, then look at me and sneer as if to say “What are you doing with THAT?”. A few times they’d even flirt with him as if it weren’t possible that we could be a couple, and I must just be a fat friend or cousin.
    When I walked into clothing stores to buy things, I wouldn’t get anyone come over and offer to help me. They just assumed that there was nothing in my size so there was no point. Many times I’d be looking for something for other people and just be blatantly ignored or have eye rolling thrown at me when I’d ask to help as if I was wasting their time.
    After I lost all the weight I started buying new clothes (nothing fit!) and I was shocked at the difference. I’d walk into a store and the attendant would jump to help me. They’d be right there with a heap of suggestions and they’d be REALLY apologetic if something didn’t fit.
    People SMILE at me now. In the past they’d not make eye contact. Even passing someone on the street when you’d normally give a smile or a nod to at least acknowledge their presence, people wouldn’t even look towards me. It was like they could catch ‘fat’ just by being in the same room. People treat me like another person now, and I didn’t realise just how de-humanizing obesity can be. That’s why I’ll always give exactly the same warm smile to a friendly skinny face as I would a larger one. Because I’ve been in both pairs of shoes, and even though I didn’t know it at the time I look back and think that I was even lonelier than I had thought.

  • I have a motivational / problem question I really need some advice on. I was 275 and lost down to 180 a couple of years ago. However, people didn’t react as positive as I thought. Coming from a large family people would say you look sick, or other things that wasn’t as positive as I thought. It feels like you get criticized when you are large or small. What is your experience with this problem?

  • Started with 136kg (300 pounds) down to 131 (289) and still going. Only started thanks to your videos (and some other youtubers) that mtivated me and showed that it’s not impossible, though still hard.
    Hearing about your point 5, I have to say, society prop. does treat obese people differently (haven’t figured it out yet for myself), but I was and am really lucky with my sports teacher (at least the one I had the longest) and my doctor.
    My sports teacher wouldn’t make fun of me, he’d support me and actually kinda graded me bit better, when he saw that I really tried my best (which I always did) and was sympathetic when I really coudln’t anymore. Just now hearing you, realised how lucky I was.
    And my current doctor, he never talks down on me or something, he is very nice and helping instead. Always been happy to have him s my doc, as he makes it easy to talk about things cause he tlks with me and includes my opinion on things, but onyl now realised how lucky Iam.

    Thank you again very much and keep doing those amazing videos:)

  • Number 4 is so freaking true!!!

    A year into my journey I’m now able to not only work at Starbucks, but box for an hour, skateboard for half an hour, and then bike for 10 miles all in one day, and that is something I NEVER thought I could do, just keep working on it guys. It comes easier then you think, be patient and never give up.

  • Hey man, I ran across one of your videos and you have inspired me to get started. I am 38, have been drinking 10 beers a day for 10 years or more, and ate whatever I wanted. It’s been 2 weeks now and I haven’t drank a drop. I’ve kept my calories under 2000/day and already lost 7 lbs! Just want to say thanks man! Subbed

  • I have only lost 37 lbs so far, but I already feel a difference in my confidence. I related with many of the things you said. One of my big motivators is to have the ability to live life. With every pound lost I am more equiped to make short films (my dream). I actually made a video where I shared that one day I want to be able to make ride a long board. Which I have never even been able to attempt because of my weight. Thank you for sharing! Also, what time do you do your live streams on twitch?

  • My son lost weight 25 kg in one year from 100 to 75 kg. He is 19 years old now. He starts to enjoy being good looking guy, hope he will find a girl friend soon. I love your video. Thanks so much.

  • Sup man, I am 6′ tall and I weigh 315 lbs… I am VERY strong and I have the build of an offensive lineman for football… But I am about 40-60 lbs overweight… I’ve played competitive sports since I was 4 years old but I have always been overweight. I know it’s most likely my diet. I do know what a healthy diet is, and I plan on getting on one when I start my workout regiment.. But I’m having trouble figuring out what to do in the gym… I want to loose weight and start a habit in the gym… But what should I start doing?

  • You are dead right about confidence. I was pretty ashamed of being around others or approaching girls because of my appearance but after losing my belly I feel the total opposite.

  • Summer of my sophmore year and I’m too embarrassed to go swimming at the beach and with my friends. I’m tired of it. I’m starting my transformation this Monday. I’m 270 lbs 6’2” Wish me luck! Feel free to leave tips, I’d appreciate it.

  • I love your channel!! It is such an inspiration!! If I am having a down on myself day (yes, even after -41 lbs. I still get upset over my lack of enthusiasm) I just go to your channel and play one of your vids. I love them. You tell it like it is and I can feel it comes from the heart. My family is very supportive (this time anyway) of my lifestyle change (yes, i finally realized it had to be), but to hear it from you it is very inspirational. I CAN DO IT! Keep up the vids.

  • hey man I love your videos.. they always motivate me to keep trying and trying… and since i started i have lost around 9kgs.. so thank you for making such videos

  • I’m in an awkward weight range as I’m over weight but only by 2 stone I struggle to get past this…any advice? I’m 32 and work on a farm + go to the gym and I’ve just done my second ocr race…so not lazy lol

  • Lost 30pounds. Had to get my suit taken In 3″ around the waist. Shirts from high school fit again. Just overall more confident.
    Follow me on Instagram

  • Thanks man, for your videos. I started eating healthy, and going to the gym in January. Right now my weight is 82 Kg, down from 97 Kg. Everything is possible, don’t give up, just keep trying! Also i am using MyFitnessPal, and i don’t eat more then 2000 calories a day… Amazing app. My MFPal numbers 114 days streak, 15 kg lost!

  • Dude I got to Louisiana Tech and the desks have this connected chairs and I was so damn fat my sophomore year it hurt me to squeeze my fat belly into the desk. It actually effected my grades. I hated going to class.

  • I’m at 240 pounds & it’s so hard to try getting motivation to lose some weight.. hoping your video helps! I’m also looking into weight loss pills. Anyone have any suggestions?

  • After I lost 70 pounds people who before didn’t even look at me started to be really nice and asked me out. It’s sad how superficial some people are

  • I haven’t looked into other videos cause these seem like a friend being real with me. Ended up getting a date with a girl I’ve been eyeing for a while. I don’t attribute that to weight loss but to confidence due to the weight loss. It’s not easy but as long as that high feeling continues after working out, I’m gonna keep going!

  • I’ve recently lost about 25 pounds (257 to 232) and recently had to go on multiple overseas flights. It was a joyful experience to not have to cram into the seat and the bathroom experience was decidedly easier.

  • I also want to thank you I have been following you since I started going to the gym and in the last 4 months I have lost 10kg (22lbs) and my confidence has improved dramatically I have also gained quite a bit of muscle and definition.
    This took a very bad break up and a real reality shift but I am slowly becoming the best version of myself.
    I still have a long future in front of me but I am hopeful for my future for the first time thank you for everything you do for your viewers.

  • Thanks for you videos. I need to think why losing weigh is so important. I weigh 366lbs now at 55 years old. I lost weigh twice only to regain all the weigh back after 3 to 4 years. Now I’ve been trying for the last year and an half to lose weigh. It’s very harder now. Hoping that this motivation will center
    Me and help me believe that I can do it.

  • hi FMF, I have been following your videos. I Totally Agree with your societal hypothesis involving society treating fat people differently than after weight loss. I have been going gym 1 and half months to loose fat!! I notice people open doors for me and talk to me more as if I now exist. I am still 380 pounds, but lost fat, gained muscle. been bodybuilding hardcore whole commitment.

  • I love this video!! Thank you for sharing. I’m at the starting gate and have a lot of weight to lose. I am going to check out your videos you mentioned on how to lose weight.

  • I guess I’m lucky to not have went through the things other big people went through. At school I was never talked down to or anything cause at any sport I have it my all which put me probably in the middle of the class in terms of athleticism. Like I’d be that guy in a full dead sprint going across the court to try and block a shot. I just always prided my self wig being the most “healthy fat person”. And I tell you what made me get complacent with being fat. During my doctors visit my last year of school they took my blood and when the results came back they said I was fine and the only thing that was wrong was my Ldl was slightly high but still within normal ranges. So I thought I would be okay no matter what.

  • Really good tips bro!! Keep the videos coming they are an inspiration to keep my weight loss journey going, I started at 247 and went down to 225 took about 2 months to do that and just from dieting. Your videos really help. Now I just have to start working out lol

  • I’ve lost 50 pounds, still have more to go, but I definitely see how people treat me differently, especially the flirting from girls. Now I’m married, it doesn’t bother me that girls didn’t flirt with me before, but now that they are, it makes you feel good. Boosts your self confidence.

  • Bro I ran into this channel weighing in at 284 now I’m 260 dude and it’s been pretty easy in a way after seeing your videos but in goal is 180 idk if that’s healthy but I want to lose at least 100 lbs thanks dude love the video

  • As I’ve been losing weight and it has been more and more visible that the last reason is true. I moved into a new town at the beginning of the year and don’t know anyone here. Since the beginning of the year, I have lost 15kg and now it seems more visible than ever. Some mornings I will get a coffee out and people are more likely to respond to the casual hello or strike up a conversation since. Sadly people look down on the bigger people but since, my co workers, family and friends have been more accepting me as a person. Thank you for making these videos. They have helped me a lot through my journey so far and I’m sure they will keep me inspired along the way.
