following: Gigi39's own diet
performance: losing 1.8 lb a week
When I started about 9 years ago, my weight had gone up to 232 lbs. It came down very slowly.
Several years ago I had a small stroke and started to follow the WOE suggested by the hospital. Then, because of a lot of leg-pain (Venus Re-flux), I thought to cut out most meats, ate only fish, whole grains and vegetables. That effort lasted only little while.
Had a knee replacement in 2012, shoulder surgery 2012 and another knee replacement in 2013 with severe problems and a long, still ongoing, recovery.
Because of complications I lost a bit of weight, then put it right back on after I was able to eat again. I did not pay attention to my "diet", and especially because of having difficulties walking, put on weight again.
I follow a moderate low carb diet, (lifestyle). I stay away from refined foods as much as possible, white flour, sugar, canned foods etc. My fats are olive oil and coconut oil for the most part. Fiber is very important to me, and I shoot for a minimum of 25 gr. a day.
Weight loss is slow, as I stick around 1400 to 1500 cal. a day as this site suggests. Exercise recumbent bike mostly.
In my late 30s I became a Christian, and I feel very blessed to be able to still serve in ministry as a musician on keys in a Calvary Chapel Worship Band. I just turned 76 in June.
Wishing everyone success and urge you to enter your food every day. That helps a lot.
You have done many good things for me, Lord, just as you promised.I believe in your commands;now teach me good judgment and knowledge.(Ps 119:65-66)
