Some very good points. Well done for expressing it.

He's right.
You don't need to go to the gym to be fit. Biking or walking to your destination as much as you can will count. Play some basket ball or similar every once in a while will be good for your entire body, even the mind (hand eye coordination and concentration). Use your body and mind, and both will serve you well when you get older.
Never underestimate the power of large crowds, of stupid people.

he is extremly right, partner is 45 type 2 diabetic, 30kg overweight.
i'm 33, was almost 60 kg overweight. Getting married this year we both lost a lot of weight and it is so much better. I didn't want to take an honeymoon as we wouldn't be able to enjoy if we were still fat and unable to walk properly or be tired all the time.

With loss of weight she get better control on her diabetes, better strength, able to buy proper cloth. It is simply amazing and the best thing we did.

i like his communication skills, but that's it. otherwise, no... no, people need to make their own mistakes in order to learn. the idea that one generation sets an example for the next is pretty circumstantial at best. the same excuses he gave for blowing off reality will tend to be the same ones that kids use to blow off his own message IMO.

if you want to make a difference, better to SHOW not TELL. do the weight loss and spread the dramatic before and after shots. or talk specifically about nutrition choices that can make a big difference, like eating small regular meals and/or avoiding processed grains in order to regulate glycemic levels. or eating a variety of unprocessed foods in order to give yourself a full balance of phytonutrients and antioxidants to offset the environmental pollutants and carcinogens that we're all exposed to on a regular basis. stuff like that.

i say do the research, put it in to practice, spread education on the facts. it's good that that you admit you have a problem, it's good that you've found a connection to people, but there are many more steps past that. every one of us could talk this way about some personal trouble of ours, but i get the feeling that this guy has settled on this one stage of the process, maybe because he's enjoying the attention a little much.

"do the weight loss and spread the dramatic before and after shots. or talk specifically about nutrition choices that can make a big difference, like eating small regular meals and/or avoiding processed grains[...]"

There is a lot of this already. Doctors, phys. ed teachers, PSAs are always preaching this and people (like me) just shrug it off. We think "yeah yeah... whatever. be healthy, be skinny, blah blah blah. I do what I want"
This guy however actually brought a tear to my eye. When you see the danger or the aftermath of something, it DOES make you think and possibly change your life.
If he did change his life around and showed dramatic before and after shots, people (like me) will just be like "oh congrats, good for you" *eats a burger*
but this actually would make me put that burger down.

And trust me, I strongly believe in people making their own mistakes in order to learn from them, but what would make you put drugs and cigarettes down more? a doctor telling you its bad for your lungs and showing you pictures of before and after shots of diseased body parts, or a person that looks very ill, coughing, face full of sores, missing hair, etc. telling you their life story and what those drugs did to him/her? (with the same motivational speaking skills this guy had)
Maybe we will soon see a vid on his accomplishments and how much weight he's lost but this video will definitely have been the more impacting one.

thank you for the reply, gothamkittie, and post repped. i respect that his video moved you and agree it would be cool if he continued with followup vids as he makes progress. i could see that being a very useful and inspiring thing for many.

i would just like to point out that by 'advice' i meant advice from people in the same position, not doctors or anyone else who make you feel lectured. i get your point on that, for sure.

personally, i'm quite biased in this matter. that is, i lost over a quarter of my weight by completely retooling my diet over the course of a couple years. my nutrition research will never end, my struggle will never end, but the the critical work was accomplished through slowly reprogramming myself. now maybe i'm just a bit jealous of any attention this guy receives. :P cheers!

Somethings on these weight issues has bothered me for a long time. When people talk about health issues caused by people smoking cigarettes or drinking alcohol and the amount of money which goverments has to put in for trying to help these people through public healthcare etc. in that case its always okay to raise taxes on alcohol and cigarettes, cause these people will eventually have some problems with their health and they're relying on public healthcare to help them.

So why on earth its acceptable for people get unhealthily fat without having to pay anything for their unhealthy and costly lifestyle. They can still rely on the same public healthcare. I think they should pay taxes as well as the smokers and alcoholics.
