    dietician

    Are any of you dieticians?

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

    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.

    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.

    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.
    8) 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.

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