What to do if you have a LOT of weight to lose’ is a series of articles dedicated to the seemingly daunting task of losing lots of weight – think 30kg or more. If you are in this boat then this is the strategy for you. Follow the steps week by week and you’ll soon be on the path to a THINNER and (more importantly) HEALTHIER you.

Be prepared to sacrifice…

When you think about achieving ANYTHING of value in life you have to think about the cost of doing so. Your results will come, but they will come at a price. I’m going to say it again… ANYTHING good that you do will cost you something.

And dieting is no different.

If you want to lose weight then you’re going to have to WORK at it. This work involves a few elements – time, effort, planning, diligence, commitment to the cause, and SACRIFICE.

Yes, sacrifice

Generally one of our least favourite ideas! You see, with weight loss, you can’t have it both ways.

You truly cannot eat your cake, and have (visible) abs too. In order to lose the weight you’re going to constantly be challenged to say ‘No’ to things you want, and say ‘Yes’ to things that feel difficult (like exercise, or eating broccoli).

Sacrifice is the hardest part of dieting. That’s why all the most popular diet books try to give you weight loss without cost. And the books sell. But the weight doesn’t come off for most, and if it does, it comes back heavier than before.

So if you want to lose the weight… You REALLY want to… Then learn to develop an attitude of sacrifice, and do the work. It’s guaranteed to be effective, and possibly change the rest of your life for the better too.
