Keep it Real! Don’t try to lose too much weight!

One of the main selling points of The Ratchet Diet is that the goal of the diet is to achieve a healthy weight.   The target weight is dictated by the Waist to Height Ratio.   Dieters on The Ratchet Diet do not run the risk of becoming obsessed and losing weight for the wrong reasons.    We are not interested in helping someone who wants to be a size zero and end up becoming anorexic.    If you have those tendencies, please leave this site immediately and contact your GP!     There is no value in becoming too slim.   Too many studies have shown that people who are too thin have just as many if not more health issues as obese people.

By way of illustration, I am sharing a few videos with readers of this blog, to show them that people who are too skinny have just as many problems as people who are too fat.

In these videos you will see super-large ladies going toe to toe against their  pint-sized sisters in the battle of the bulge.   There are no losers in this battle, only winners!

Supersize vs Superskinny: Season 4 / Episode 3 – “Dawn vs Charlene”

It’s war in the feeding clinic as Dawn goes into meltdown when calorie-counting Charlene doesn’t eat her mountainous meals.
Meat addict 47-year-old Dawn Grant tips the scales at a whopping eighteen stone four lbs. Over a year Dawn wolfs down 208 whole chickens, 1716 rashers of bacon, 3800 sausages, 36,000 slices of deli meat, and 36 kilos of minced beef.

Charlene Sequiera weighs less than six stone. Her diet is so restrictive that she lacks energy and is constantly sleeping. This is seriously affecting her life at uni. Charlene desperately needs to eat more, but it’s one excuse after another until Dr Christian gives her a stern dressing down.

Dietician Ursula Philpot challenges the regular group of eating-disordered women to have 3-D plaster casts of their torsos made to face the reality of what their dangerous eating habits have done to their bodies.

Supersize vs Superskinny: “Helen vs Elaine” (Season 5 / Episode 1)

 

Dr Christian flies out to Evansville, Indiana, officially America’s ‘Fattest City’, where 38% of the population is obese. Experts predict that by 2020 a third of adults in the UK will be obese. But in America this milestone has already been reached. He meets a woman who lost her foot to obesity-related diabetes, and visits a funeral home where the coffins are the size of hot tubs!

In the Feeding Clinic, Supersize and Superskinny go on a shocking diet swap. But before they swap diets, Christian gives his Supersizer a terrifying glimpse into the future by sending them to the US, to spend time with somebody whose obesity has ruined their life.

The new series also examines a variety of eating disorders as six men and women reveal their very personal stories. In this episode, 18-year-old it’s Ellie Lambert, whose anorexia was triggered by a jaw operation that prevented her from eating.

  4. This is an incredible blog. A lot of the advice I have heard before, but somehow you seem to make it all come together in a coherent picture.

  5. Flip this upside down and imagine that you want to put weight on instead of losing it. Its still a hard call. That’s why I think your Ratchet Method would work just as well for someone trying to gain weight. Maybe something to think about? You could be looking a total Goldmine
