Been there, done that, Ladies,
The best (and only) way that I have been able to lose weight is to see
a bariatrician and go on a medically supervised diet with vitamins and minerals supplied by the bariatrician. (It helps to have a treadmill in
the home, too, although I spend time looking at it and saying goodbye
as I pass by often. That's why I can't lose the weight.)
A must in losing weight is to shift from anything containing caffeine or
alcohol which must be removed from your diet: caffeine is a stimulant to the central nervous system and may spark appetite. Alcohol just makes depression worse and may cause overeating to relieve the depression.
Next, drink water and lots of it: 8 to 10 (8 oz) glasses per day.
You already know about
the need to cut out the sugars, add more green vegetables and salads to your diet and eat meat about
times a week (with smaller portions than usual) and add more fish and fresh fruits to your diet.
These are not right off a doctor's desk, so you need to recognize that
what was prescribed for me might not be what's best for you. You
have to go with what your dietician recommends for you. It's a very
self-directed science that is provided for you.
I have been able to cut medications into less than 1/2 a standard dose
by watching what I eat (ate, I should say, because I need to get back
on the diet thing again now; I call it getting back on the wagon.)
P.S. Getting By, I apologize for misspelling your name; I have no excuse unless it could be that the niotartst posts threw my equilibrium momentarily. IG
