Weight Loss For The Morbidly Obese - 5 Life-Saving Tips

If you are morbidly obese or even super morbidly obese, there are options that can help you to return to a healthy lifestyle.

Here are 5 tips that could eventually save your life, because let's face it: Every day of obesity is bad for you and you must lose weight fast.

1. Acknowledge your situation as a morbidly obese person

The good news is: You have already fully completed the first step. You are actively looking for information, which means that you are aware of your problem. Let this be the anchor that keeps your feet on the ground. Visualize how it can only get better from here, and always stay focussed on making weight loss happen. It will make you achieve your goal.

2. Get medical advice and consider going to a weight loss center

Unlike other people who only want to lose a few pounds, you have an unhealthy level of overweight. It is very wise to get yourself a doctor. This can either be your usual doctor that treats your colds, or a specialist. You can also think about going to hospital as an inpatient. Let this not scare you: It's only an idea worth thinking about. Nobody is pushing you. Just get yourself informed about this option.

There are many different types of hospitals known by many names: Adult weight loss camp, weight loss spas, center, resort, even farms. Some of them are more like boot camps while others are more medically oriented. It doesn't take long to find offers from such places, sometimes you even get them in form of advertisements while browsing through the web.

The advantage of getting professional help is that you don't have to take care of yourself. Trained professionals are in charge and take responsibility for your health. Another option: Find people with the same problem as you and meet up to support each other.

3. Get the right kind of motivation to do it yourself

If you don't want to go to a weight loss clinic, or you first want to check out some facts about these places, you can still start losing weight on your own. There are some motivational aspects that can help you here. Let me show you some of them:

  • You can lose weight without any effort on your part (no exercising, starving etc.)
  • You have the most of weight to lose, therefore you can lose a massive amount of weight per week
  • As soon as you are used to a low carb diet, you will no longer have cravings or appetite
  • You don't have to be mentally strong or willing, you only have to be knowledgeable

4. Start some lazy weight loss

Let's face it: When you are obese, this means several things: You are stuck with your weight, you don't know how to get out of your situation, you have tried in vain what other people said would work, and simple rules like exercising every day and counting calories don't work for you.

It's time that you do something totally different. And for a person like you who probably doesn't have much hope left, it's best to start a diet that does not involve any activity, determination or willpower.

I am talking about a kind of diet where exercise is only an option, where you don't need to be emotionally charged in order to achieve anything, and where weight loss occurs while doing nothing at all.

At first, you may think that this sounds too good to be true. Well, just in case you are having doubts: No, I am not going to sell you an ebook here, and I won't ask you to subscribe for anything (you can subscribe to be notified about my new posts by email, though). I am going to give you all the information on this blog for free.

First, in case you haven't read them yet, read my other posts to get a basic idea of where all of this is going:

Losing Weight Without Exercising

Next up, let's go more into detail for specific obesity problems:

I believe the biggest problem for an obese person, apart from the low self-confidence, is that an obese person is a slave to foods. Whatever they may be: Fast food, sweet food, sugars, chocolate, cakes, you name it.

We have to get you on the right path. The right path means: Not doing anything, including not doing the wrong things!

Lazy weight loss means that you can lose weight while sitting on your sofa, watching TV, but not eating cookies while doing so!

How do we get you there? We must eliminate appetite, cravings and hunger.

I have already written plenty of posts about the topic. They all go hand in hand with the low carb philosophy of the other posts I have shown you before, so check out these posts as well. I know it looks like a lot, but remember that the key to weight loss success is knowledge, not willpower or mental strength. Of course, you can skip some of these posts if you think you already got the idea:

The Difference Between Hunger And Cravings
Overcoming Sugar Addiction
Extreme Sugar Cravings
Weaning Off Sugar
How To Stop Eating Junk Food
Overcoming Binge Eating

I hope you are still not too tired and can go on reading. With all the information you have now, you should be able to make a low carb diet work like this:

  • You are emotionally balanced and just following the rules without pressure
  • You take comfort in the fact that you don't have to lift a finger to lose weight
  • You acknowledge that cravings can occur, but you know how to turn them off slowly, patiently and with little sacrifice on your part

5. Supplement boost for even better results

Why only rely on your own work to lose weight? You can achieve an extra 25% or more weight loss if you add the right supplements. The best thing: Instead of ordering them all from different suppliers, get them all at Amazon.com and save yourself shipping costs.

I am not necessarily talking about fancy weight loss products, although this can help. Sometimes, it's simple nutrients that can help. Various vitamins and minerals improve weight loss.

Some of the best nutrients to improve your weight loss are:


This mineral will increase the number of mitochondria in your body. A mitochondrion is some kind of power plant in your body that helps you burn fat if you are on a good diet. Magnesium also keeps your nerves calm and improves digestion.

You can get a 6 months supply for under 7 dollars here: Sundown Naturals Magnesium 500 Mg Caplets Value Size, 180 Count


This supplement is usually created by the body, but only if you eat certain foods. It's been tested in studies that showed that weight loss increased by around 20 to 25 per cent if L-Carnitine was used in addition with a good diet.

I tried it myself and had good results with it. You can also get it at Amazon and you will only spend roughly 29 cents per day if you buy the 100 day supply: NOW Foods L- Carnitine Tartrate 1000mg, 100 Tablets

Of course, there are other supplements that will help. But I only wanted to give you an idea of where you can start and not bombard you with things you should buy. Start there, try some of them, and apart from that, just focus on doing what is right for your diet. As soon as you notice that things start working, you can also buy more supplements to make your efforts pay off even more.


Let's recap what is important:

  • You acknowledge that you are obese and that your morbid obesity needs to be cured
  • You keep your eyes open for weight loss clinics and resorts that could offer you help, and at least get some medical assistance while you're losing weight
  • You motivate yourself and start your own success story
  • You begin with lazy weight loss and let the results speak for themselves
  • You get some supplements to improve your weight loss to the maximum
  • Keep checking this blog for new diet-related posts that will motivate you and help you internalize the important aspects of weight loss
