About Losing Weight!

I just discovered this documentary, and found it was really enlightening. I thought I'd share it here, and maybe help someone else out!

To quote the summary
" In this programme, medical journalist Michael Mosley investigates the latest scientific breakthroughs in slimming, uncovering ten of the simplest ways you can shed those pounds."

It goes over subjects like eating breakfast and cardio, along with some other surprising info.

Chanticleer this was such a marvelous Documentary. Great research. I am now going to make sure soup is incorporated into my everyday. Coincidentally I made a huge pot this past Sunday and must agree I have been feeling quite full and this confirmed it! I love the knowledge of the AFTERBURN! Also interesting that some low fat dairy will help burn more fat. So many practical great tips! Thanks for sharing this! TOWANDA!!!

I'm watching it now and I definitely need to convince my boyfriend that even though he's really muscular he should worry about the visceral fat. I can tell he's got it, but I don't think he can tell. It looks like a really good documentary and it's confirming for me many things I've come to believe myself over the last year and a half.

I really believe now that we need to listen to our bodies. You FEEL it when you're doing the wrong thing (eating too much, not eating enough, eating the wrong things, etc) The things my body has told me are backed up by some of the things in the documentary! Thanks for sharing it Smile

OMG, this documentary is GREAT! I love the lady at the beginning who doesn't think she's eating too much, but really is. It's so true. I was like that. Fatsecret changed it for me. Entering in every food you eat and learning what portion sizes should be is eye-opening!

Thanks again for sharing, this should help a lot of people if they can find the hour to watch it Smile

Yes, I'm happy because I LOVE soup Smile It's the easiest thing to make and as a vegetarian it's an easy way to get the beans and lentils I want in my diet. And it's so cheap to make a big pot and take to work for lunches. Now I feel like it's a good thing for weight loss as well. I never knew that!

Ok I just finished it and it was fabulous.

Hey you people in the UK... I have a request for you. Can you continue to share links to your favorite weight loss/ health programming? I feel like we don't get these kinds of great documentaries too often in the US. And I don't get the BBC channel Sad So if there's something worth checking out, I'd LOVE to know about it!

Ditto K8yk about the weight loss stuff other countries have!!! I learned a lot from watching this and it reinforced the things I already knew.... Love the soup bit!

It's true, the BBC has the best programming.
I find watching things like this not only keeps me distracted from unhealthy snacking, but it also helps me stay motivated for tomorrow ! Smile

Awesome documentary! Thanks for sharing!!! I took a few notes while watching and I thought I'd share them here:
1. Don't skip meals---it will make your brain crave high calorie food
2. Use smaller plates---go from 12 in. to 10 in.--can cut 22% of food consumed
3. Count calories---choose low calorie versions of food
4. Don't blame your metabolism---we under report what we eat
5. Increase protein intake--- protein keeps you fuller longer
6. Eat soup---soup fills your stomach more and takes longer to digest which makes you full longer
7. Variety is bad---we are programed to want to try everything, don't go to the buffet
8. Dairy is good---helps fat to go right through body rather than stay in
9. Exercise burns fat after you work out----even when you sleep
10. Add little bits of activities to your day---take the stairs, stand up and talk on the phone, walk around, burns calories

One thing really hit home on this documentary - The section on internal/visceral fat. Everybody always tells me I "carry weight well." Apparently, this is not so well for my body, because I may have a lot of internal fat. The good news in the documentary was that it's the first fat you lose when dieting.

This really explains a lot. I have lost a lot of weight already, but it's not obvious. However, I use to have difficult getting a full breath (fat around the lungs?). Now I have really good lung capacity. I used to have a lot of hypoglycemic attacks (fat stressing the pancreas?). Now I have very few of these attacks. I have high blood pressure (fat pressuring the large blood vessels of the torso?). My blood pressure has dropped about 8 points. And who knows what all that visceral fat was doing to my heart.

So even though the weight loss is not showing so much on the outside, it is doing a lot of good on my insides. This documentary was a real "lifesaver" for me. Since I am one of these people who tend to put on visceral fat, I have an even more important reason to lose weight - like not dying.

I have to say I loved this!!! Thank you for posting it!! Things that I thought were very important was that the soup needed to be puree type of soup...I am assuming this means not really broth type soups...correct me if I am wrong..

Also I thought it was really interesting to learn about the fat sticking to your organs....This may be why people don't see a difference right away when losing weight. Losing weight from the inside out, rather then the outside in...Very tricky!!

The woman who didn't quite realize she wasn't actually writing everything down may be the culprit for a lot of people here who have hit a plateau. It is my new found theory that we may have to lower our calorie intake allowance just to really get where we want to be. We actually may be leaving off things or miscalculating...which means we do need to adjust for a margin of error. hmmm interesting..

I think the best thing about this video was the science behind it. For once we are getting advice from people who are really focused on the science, not the latest fad diet...

I have read that doctors suggest really low calorie intakes for just this reason. They KNOW people will underestimate what they are eating. This is why Fatsecret is so great. But even with FS, you can fool yourself. In the beginning I entered everything I ate, but I was estimating portions and I was completely wrong. When I bought a food scale and started seeing the reality, everything clicked for me. I was one of those fat people who would have sworn I did not overeat. I was wrong. I overate. A lot. (Obviously, you don't get that close to 300 pounds without overeating!)
