Always try healthy, filling snack, such as an apple and some other fruits. Smart snacking will assist you to lose weight.

I find Dr's don't have a great knowledge of eating plans.

To eat low carb you need to eat high fat, but good fats!

I would suggest eliminating the simple carbs, the processed foods and eating the good complex carbs in the form of vegetables.

If you want to look into low carb eating plans then go to the Atkins website and read their information.

You should choose something that you can sustain for life and not just diet to lose weight. Atkins has 4 phases, induction thru lifetime maintenance and is very easy to follow.

Watch out for 'low fat' products, they have to make it taste good without the fat and that is usually done with some form of sugar.

Low fat? Your doctor is stuck in the 80's! Smile But going low carb is good (replacing processed, refined or carbs that convert to sugar easily with healthier, high fiber carbs). I personally like more vegetables and low sugar fruits even in lieu of high-fiber breads, rices, etc. But like someone said, if you go low carb, you have to get your calories from either protein or fat. Your body needs fat to lose fat, just get more of the good fats (seeds, nuts, avacado, coconut oil, etc). Overall, the trick is replacing bad foods with healthier foods so you stay full longer and these foods tend to be less in calories, less calories means you lose weight.
this damn tracker below hasn't been right in months! My current weight is 137!

I agree with MrsPackRat...eat. You've need real whole foods to balance carb, protein, sodium and fat. No food is the enemy, only what you do with the food. Become a label junkie until you get the hang of it. Labels usually tell you the percentage of fat in an item and that should be no more than like 30% of the product total fat. I am totally against a lot of packaged products that say low fat or low sugar, etc. Usually the carb/fat difference is not that much and in the whole food has no frankenstein (made up) products like shortenings, margarines, sugar alchols (pretty much any word in -tol). I suggest this book to every one because it was a quick and dirty way to get a jumpstart on realistic pantry and meal planning (even though I'm not a diabetic). The EatingWell Diabetes Cookbook: 275 Delicious Recipes and 100+ Tips for Simple, Everyday Carbohydrate Control by Joyce Hendley (ISBN-13: 978-0881506334). Very informational about foods and additives. I think there is a paperback with diff ISBN now.

Most docs have no nutrition training, if any just one class. Find something that fits you, low crab doesn't fit me. Restricting calories to 1200 and fat % at bout 30% with exercise works for me

Enjoy the summer and the sunshine.

There are lots of diet plans out there. You have to find what works for you. I've tried South Beach and the Perricone 28 day diet. I've had success on both, but I've also had success by just eliminating sugary drinks and refined sugars. Just think and eat healthy. And, remember to drink lots of water.

I happened to spot a post by the original poster last night. He resurrected an OLD post on sex and ED. I remember a spam-ish looking link in his signature. I'm guessing he got the heave-ho!

I was just checking that out Vickie, he also had another ambiguous post about recommending a diet for his 'friend' who's overweight..

It's gone now too, so he probably was given the heave ho!

Wink I know I'm the LAST person to talk about being transparent (given that I have everything set as non-viewable and have entered zippity-doo in my profile) - but when you look at the history of what some folks have posted, you kinda get an inkling of the rationale behind their posting.

And RAH for the heave ho!

Good reminder to myself though - have to get a profile done!

What's your favorite condiment
hot sauce. It's calorie free, goes with almost everything and speeds up your metabolism (or so I've heard)... A mustard... another freebee!
