There are tons of weight loss blogs out there, yet most are just disguised product placements and the ones with really meaningful advice are few and far between. Here are five pearls that make for some interesting and gratifying reading.
110 Pounds and Counting
Lisa Eirene lost 110 lbs and on her blog reflects the journey and what it took to make it happen. She documents the experience that got her started, how to deal with unsupportive partners, what to do when you actually lost the weight and much more. If you are currently facing the task of wanting to lose a similar amount of weight, you may find her insights very inspirational.
Weighty Matters is written by medical doctor and founder of Ottawa’s Bariatric Institute Yoni Freedhoff. The latter in my opinion sometimes makes him a bit too friendly regarding surgery for weight loss, but his diet book reviews are always excellent and his general observations on diet and nutrition provide me with a lot of food for thought.
Fit to the Finish
If you liked Lisa Eirene’s blog you should find Diane Carbonell’s Fit to the Finish equally interesting. Having lost 150 lbs herself, Diane writes engaging articles looking at the costs of obesity from a personal perspective to a shrewdly inserted attention getter featuring a “30-second exercise that can you help lose weight“.
Dr. Sharma’s Obesity Notes
Arya Sharma is professor of medicine and chair in obesity research at the University of Alberta, Canada. He has published an impressive number of scientific papers on the subject, but thankfully also chose to let mere mortals benefit from his insights by running a blog. On it we find articles explaining how an imaginary family picture can help solving a person’s obesity problem to discussing why sometimes less exercise could be better in weight management.
That’s Just Me
All the above could be considered heavyweights in the world of weight loss blogging, but there also is a tiny little one I very much enjoy, Siobhan’s That’s Just Me. She is a bit older and therefore not part of the main blogging demographic and still on her weight loss journey, writing about is as open as can be.
What Are Your Favorites?
Of course these are just my personal choices; without a doubt there are many more weight loss blogs worth reading out there. Feel free to mention your favorites in the comments!
