Fat Bloke: May 2009

Obesity is a life-threatening condition.  I know; I’ve suffered from it.

It is a terrible drain on personal, national and international health resources.

It will rob those who love you … of you.

It doesn’t have to be like that. Even if you are morbidly obese, you can achieve a healthy body weight in under a year, and maintain it for the rest of your life.

Slimmer Bloke–Sept 2009

Live Free From Obesity, developed by James Hardiman, (because he’s obese, and needs to live), and Susan Courtney (James’ wife, who loves him, and needs to live) works on the “M.E.N.” (Mind, Exercise, Nutrition) in your life to ensure that you are able to:

  • Eat whatever you like,
  • Eat as much as you like,
  • Eat whenever you like,
  • … and be slim, fit, and healthy?

It is possible!  Intrigued?  Check out this letter to food addicts.

In 2009 James discovered how to lose weight and gain huge health and fitness benefits by using a little known British nutrition system (only available through health-care professionals) and an amazing fitness regime that anyone can do, and everyone will enjoy (believe me: I was no sports fan or fitness fanatic!)

But when a life-problem hit, and the weight started to go back on, James realised that:

  • It’s not the fat on your boobs,
  • It’s not the fat on your belly,
  • and it’s not the fat on your bum that’s the problem:
  • It’s the “fat on your brain” that really matters.

So for the next two and a half years, James worked on every aspect of the brain, mind, emotions, spirit and relationships that is connected to over-eating and obesity.

James and Susan, Walking for Happiness

Now James and Susan have combined ancient wisdom from 2,500 years ago, with their own experience as therapist and counsellor over 30 years, and the absolute most up-to-date discoveries of modern neuro-science and the “New Science of Kindness” to produce an amazing, life-changing programme called “Together We Can” so that now we can deal with the M.E.N. in our lives, and live free from obesity forever.

What is Obesity?  It is when our Body-Mass Index (a ratio of our height to our weight) goes above 30.  There’s a calculator over there on the right (if you happen to know your height and weight in metric units).  If not, try this BMI-Calculator webpage.

    Hi there James,

    I’ve noticed in one of your reply’s to Marie on the 2nd April that you said that there’s a special version of this diet only available in the UK and ROI and that you lost 7 stones in 12 weeks. ( I live in Southend-on-Sea in the UK)

    Could I be so forward and asked if you can send it to me also. I started on Wednesday with this diet, my starting weight is 98.3kg and when I got on the scale on Friday morning it show that i’m down to 96kg, so I really want this to work for me.

    Thank you in advance for your help.

    Good day
    I’m on the Keto diet now for a few days. I see on other sites they eat as much as they want! Does calories count? I use MFP and its a great help to keep track of %!

    Being extremely obese means you are especially likely to have health problems related to your weight. The good news is that even modest weight loss can improve or prevent the health problems associated with obesity. You can usually lose weight through dietary changes, increased physical activity and behavior changes. In some cases, prescription medications or weight-loss surgery may be options. ..-:*

      I think I’d always go for a healthy diet first. Prescription meds and bariatric surgery seem, to me, to be extreme interventions.
