dietician

Are any of you dieticians?

I need help. Serious help. Maybe someone just needs to bang me in the
head with a bat.

Re: dietician

I can help get you started.

Have you tried even the most basic exercise? A walk around the block or
more? You'll need discipline and no dietician can give you that. (That's
why so many yo-yo on any diet)

Commit yourself to a manageable but substaintial routine first. Of course,
stop eating food you know is inherently bad, such as bacon wrapped oreos.
🙂

Not me...but I have dropped 35 lbs over the past few years. Here is
what worked for me:
* Regular exercise - walking.
* Using smaller plates and not taking seconds - amazing what this will
do. I tend to fill my plate, a small plate still looks full, but
doesn't hold as much food. You think you ate a lot, but you really
don't. 🙂
* Making dessert an occasional treat instead of a daily occurrence.

Re: dietician

As also someone who has dropped 40 pounds and kept it off (without a major
change in what I ate, just when, how much and how), I have the following
suggestions:

1) Eat smaller portions more often. The body works best on just in time
delivery of calories. Eating 3000 calories at one sitting is counter
productive as, in most cases, the body will only utilize 1/3rd of that in
the next 2-3 hours. Once the body has restored glucose levels in the muscle
tissues, the extra calories are either stored (bodies first choice) as fat
or expelled as waste.
2) Drink water, lots of water. At least 1-.5 gallons spread throughout the
day. I can guarantee you that you are dehydrated, no matter how much water
you think you drink it's not enough.
3) Before each meal drink at least an 8 ounce glass of water. This will help
expand your stomach which means that you brain will get the signal from your
stomach that it is full earlier.
4) Eat slowly and ensure that you are only eating not eating and doing
something else like reading or watching TV.
5) Do not eat anything after 8pm (or at least 2 hours before your bedtime)
6) Get 8 hours sleep a night. Not 6 hours Mon-Fri and then 12 hours on Sat &
Sun. No matter what you hear, lost sleep can not be made up from a damage to
the body point of view.
7) Eat breakfast, I will repeat EAT BREAKFAST, this is one of the CRITICAL
rules of maintaining a healthy weight. It provides the necessary energy for
the body to work more efficiently, not eating breakfast will put the body in
a starvation mode where it will try to store as much energy as possible and
the only effective way for the body to store significant energy is as fat.
😎 Move more. Walk, ride a bike, swim, whatever it takes. Take the steps
instead of elevator/escalator. Park your car further away from a store. It's
all about increasing your activity level.
9) Raise your basal metabolic rate (the rate your body burns calories when
resting). How you ask? Build muscle. Strength train. Note: I did not say
body build just because everyone thinks the term bidy build means become
freakishly huge. But by building muscle you are building your body. Muscle,
on a per pound basis, burns 25 times more calories than a pound of fat. And
strength trained muscles (i.e onces that are repeatedly exposed to
resistance exercise) burn 50% more calories than untrained muscle.

Re: dietician

Ooo, ooo, Mr. Kotter! I know! 🙂 (Couldn't resist).

Do you have health care now? HMOs are paying for pre-diabetic patients to
go to dieticians to work out diet plans now...assuming the same would be
for diabetics. From what I learned, one of the biggest evils for
diabetics, and hardest to figure out, are "bad" carbs, fruit juice, and
certain fruits that are high in sugar.

The most fun part of my visit to the nutritionist was that I was right -
I'm not actually pre-diabetic. My increased insulin levels was part of a
hormonal imbalance (sometimes it really sucks being female). The best news
was that I got hooked up with a really great nutritionist who (having been
morbidly obese herself) didn't rule out anything on the diet, highlighted
all of the "bad" carbs, and gave me really good tips on what is good for
when you have the munchies but need to stay on track.. She set limits as
to my chocolate inteact, but didn't outlaw it completely, which makes life
easier for me.

Good luck with it! Oh, by the way Splenda works really well in baking, and
does okay with chocolate too.

All good points. I had forgotten about those two, but they have also
been helpful to me.

-Don't enter a supermarket when hungry.
-Keep some fruit on your desk. When you get hungry, eat some fruit.

Adding to what has already been said...

If you are severely overweight then it would pay to go to a gym where
there aren't posers, make sure they have personal trainers. Depending
on how serious you are then you just need a couple of sessions with a
personal trainer to make up a routine - if they are any good they will
take in to account your weight and your diet, often they have
nutritional specialists handy. It is important that when you are
really large that you don't over do it initially as that can be quite
dangerous to your health.
To give you an idea, here to go to a gym where you have two sessions
with a personal trainer and a 12 month gym membership is about NZ$150 ~
maybe around the US$90 mark.

I would also suggest getting a pedometer and maybe a heart-rate
monitor. You can use the pedometer as a sort of challenge, working on
increasing the distance you walk each day. Heart-rate monitors are
great, especially if you get one that calculates calories burnt -
providing a sense of achievement. With a HR Monitor, with a little
research you can find out where your 'calory burning zone' is, get your
heart-rate into that zone whilst you are walking and it will help the
weight drop 🙂

And on a final note, here they have ads on TV which pretty much tell
you to take any opportunity to get some exercise - simple things like
taking the stairs rather than the elevator.
If possible have another family member come for evening walks with you
- they can help challenge and motivate.

Oh, and the key is routine! Set a regular routine of exercise and make
it part of your life.

Re: dietician

I've done what everyone else has done.

Breakfast: yogurt and some fruit
lunch: sandwich, fruit
dinner: 1 LARGE ziplock bag of raw veggies and a half cup of peanut
butter
I have two fruits on standby for a snack

remember I work a 12 hour shift and can't leave the room unless I'm
going to the potty room.

I drink LOTS of water

I've lost 40 lbs since I started this but I'm at a hold point because
I've stopped the exercise bike. (it's at work and it's broke-waiting on
parts)

It works my friend.

That's why I say to pick a routine forst, any routine (walking?). Make sure
you can "stick with" something, anything. If not, you're wasting your time.

ReallY? U$90 for the year? I can't find a gym here for less than U$40
per month.
