Re: I need some help....

I have the answer I really do this plan is great and yes it WILL work for everyone even those that have tried "everything" since YOU determine what you will eat and when - which is what we are doing now, just this book shows how to make choices that will lead to fat loss and better health! ....

you get to eat what you want when you want, no forbidden foods, no rules, no musts AND folks loose a lot of weight FAST! ( not me but i'm loosing something each week and not feeling like i'm on a diet ...yipppeee!!!) the best is the escape from diet mentality...

this plan is all about making mindful choices about what we eat.

its Dr. Shapiro's picture Perfect Weight loss , amazon sells his book and has a slew of reviews on it.
The bad points of it are no recipes and he is anti-meat except for seafood and heavy on the soy products.

If you need more basic nutritional info and want recipes or info on meats since i recommend Volumeterics, which is basically the same concept the recipes look tasty and the info on the best carnivore choices is great. The problem with volumeterics is that she overcomplicates the idea and makes it difficult, the beauty of Dr. Shapiro's plan is the simple clearness of the pictures.

Can you get to a pool and do water exercise? Your doc may have better ideas - best of luck to you.

hope this helps

Hi there K,

Did they remove or drain the tumor when you had surgery? If not, is that in the future? I would definitely follow your docs' advice about the exercising if it makes you bleed, you can end up anemic and that just adds to the problem. I would concentrate on jumping one hurdle at a time. Take care of what is going on inside first. I don't mean that you should not think about or weigh your eating decisions but just take care of yourself first.

I hope that things look up for you and remember to take little baby steps everyday <IMG SRC="">

Re: I need some help....

Kay -
Has your doctor done any bloodwork on you recently? A lot of times, people of your size that have problems losing weight actually have an hormonal imbalance in conjunction with insulin resistance. It's been getting a lot of press lately - and unfortunately, not a lot of doctors are on board with it. You might want to look at Polycystic ovarian syndrome (aka PCOS). By making some dietary changes - eliminating sugar, flour/processed foods, artificial sweetners, and increasing your protein intake, it can make all the difference in the world. Do a search on google and see if it rings a bell... If it does, go see a reproductive endocrinolgist.
