black bodybuilders & musclemen

What’s up guys! First let me just say that I’m glad that buddy of mine told me about this site! The images of these muscle brothers (weather from the net or shots from the members themselves) are hot as hell and very motivating. Here’s my question to everyone…I stand at 6’6” and weigh at 257lb. this is the most that I have ever weighed and my doctor said that I’m obese and want me to lose 40lb! Everyone that look at me says that’s crazy and that’s I’m fine the way I am. In spite of the positive responses, I do want to lose some pound. I’ve never had the washboard abs with a nice chest to go along with it. Dropping down to 215lb will be a task for me since I haven’t been that size since I was in the Navy back in the 90’s! I’m taking this thermogenic call OxyElite Pro. What else I can do to reach my goal of have a body like the ones posted here. I have a bowflex machine that I’m using at home too.

Dear Tony:

I empathize with your situation my mom is all ways on to me about being fat. Just recently we decided to go on a strict diet. Now I did not over indulge over the Christmas/silly season.

1 It is how comfortable you feel with your own weight.

2 these guys you see on here have spent many many years developing their muscular bodies. Some do it at a professional level.

I admire the fact that you are trying to get in to shape, but the average person like me does not need togo to extremes and train like a footballer/professional athlete.

I do some exercises in the morning and I walk a fair bit (probably not as much as I should)

Drink plenty of water as when you exercise a lot you need to re hydrate. I also suffer from kidney stones.

I also eat a relatively healthy diet. The five fruit and five to seven vegies. Lean meat oh and I also believe eating a lot of fish helps to. Another thing I should do more of. Apart from that I think you are on the right track, you look pretty good to me. Any ways all the best in your endeavors.

The most important thing to remember as well is be your self, and don't try to hard to look like some one else each person has a different body and whilst we might emulate those we admire our bodies are different.

Sincerely

zarathustra

I really appreciate both "Zarathustra" and "Johnny L. Hopkins" on both of you guys advise. It's not that I'm trying to base my looks like others but to obtain a body that I know I can have if I just put the time and afford into it. Ture I laugh at my doctor for saying that I'm overweight, but as I get older (i'm now 41) I do see the pounds starting to sneak up on me. I don't know, call it vanity but I do look as if I'm still in my late 20's or early 30's but with the weight building up, I'm now feeling tired and the clothes feel tight. I have three sons ages from 25-17 and they're in great shape. This is something that I've been wanting to do and have for sometime now. Just staying motivated is what I finding hard to do.  

You're beautifull!

Brutha i get the same message form my doctor each time i visit him.  I am skinny, 6'1, 215 lbs, and is obese by the new Body Mass Index Table.  My doc wants me to get down to 190 lbs.  He tells me since i was skinny all my life i must maintain that weight as i age.  If, i do not i will have more health problrms doen the road.  Most health professionals will tell you that the majority of blacks are obese.  Health risks from overweight are:  type-2 diabetes, heart disease and stroke, metabolic syndrome, certian types of cancer, sleep apnea, osteoarthritis, gallbladder disease, fatty lever, and don't forget about those already programed in your DNA from parents that goes back for generations that yo do not know about.  Most blacks suffers with high-blood pressue, sugar as we call it (diabetes), gland problem that causes us to gain or loss weight.  God hel us if you have a durg users, heavy drinker in the family.  My grandfather was a drunk as i have to deal with his stomach problems now.  That DNA was passed on tome.  Brutha you have to decided to take care of yourself.  At least attempt or try to loose the weight.

I am sorry if my advice here has upset some people but we are all subject to heart disease / diabetes  cancer and the like and we are subject to being/being called obese.

A healthy diet and some exercise. is what was recommended for me but I have a problem with diary products and kidney stones.

 I still wish u all the best and I think u arwe on the right track.

Sincerely

John

I am in no way a fitness instructor, but I do suggest taking little steps and not get caught up into looking like the guys on this site.  You could spend the rest of your life trying to get like some of these guys and due to genetics it still may not happen.  With the internet there is PLENTY of information, cell phone apps, books, magazines, etc about loosing weight.  Some good information and some bad, but once u start reading enough you'll realize they all start saying about the same thing.  Eat a good diet (watching the calories), lift weights and do some cardio.  Make small goals and actually celebrate yourself when you reach those goals.

You're a nice looking guy by the way.

You're 41 and you have a son of 25? Huh?

Tony,

I am trying to lose weight for health reasons and I want to look nice, too. When anybody undertakes an exercise program, physique transformation challenge, you do it for yourself and not anyone else. Your doctor may have been concerned about things such heart disease and diabetes, but doctors base their recommendations on outdated body charts and recommendations for right weight. Do it for yourself

Yes I am 41 and I do have a son that is 25, and one that is 20 turning 21 later this year and the "baby" is 17. What's so hard to understant about that? All three of my boys have the same mother also.

I want to challenge you to lose the weight so you will live a long life and be there for your sons in the future.  There is nothing hard to understand.  You have health problems that should make you want to stay in shape.  I know as an  x retired ssgt from the USA maintaining weight is a big prblm.  My dc's at VA also want me to lose weight.  I see myself skinny at 215lbs but i have averaged  around  200lbs all my life.  I will be praying for God to help you, Johnny H., and all other who are trying to lose weight.

By lookin at your picture Tony, u r not obese, u tell the doctor to go fuck himself because he was hating on you..But if u wanna drop some pounds for yourself only 4 you and no BS doctor, then go 4 it.F what that doctor said for calling u obese what the fuck was he sniffing in his nose

Hi Tony, you big ol' hunk of a man....believe it or not the jury is still out on the whole obesity "crisis" issue. It seems like our Public Health officials in collaboration with the Big Pharma have to alarm us at every step, I guess to scare us into taking their pills or simply control our behaviors with fear. I agree with Randall in that if you want to loose some weight for your own reasons, then do that. But don't allow doctors who know very little about the Black body to give you a one-size-fits-all diagnosis. Equating "fat" with heart disease, etc. has been proven to be an exaggeration. Many "skinny" people die of heart disease. Loose the weight to achieve better symmetry or just to increase your energy (if that's an issue for you).
