I seem to be regular now so i won't try that all protein diet.
well there are different kinds of diets. i too am a little disheartened because after that peak of stress caused me to drop 4.4 lbs, 2 of them came back and the scale hasn't budged since just as it didn't budge for an entire year after that last bout with Zyprexa. it is soooo frustrating!
anyway.............. as far as dieting and health, honestly, i would just try balanced, healthy eating. The trick to losing weight is if you can manage to eat just a tiny bit less than you need every day, with considerations for the diabetes of course. you mustn't starve yourself or your body will try to preserve weight. and i would say once or twice a week having little extras, or main meals that may be a little richer than your typical "healthy" food... even pizza from time to time... it's not all bad - bread cheese and tomato... just watch the quantity in that case. same with Chinese, if there is something fried, or you get noodles or whatever. Just be moderate - and drink green tea with it to help clear the fats out of your system. It depends too on the restaurant - some use more oil, some use more water and cornstarch to make the sauces.
I am really curious what is going to happen tomorrow with my therapist tomorrow and trying to build on the list. it is such a great idea. thank you so much waves. I really think we should have one for the group.
yeah, i am curious too!
and you are very welcome... it was just a thought... i'm super glad you like it and i hope it helps.
