Whats the best substitute adiction to a food addict?
I agree with k8yk. Exercise is a great way not only to reduce stress but also to lose weight. The more muscle you build, the more calories you burn. When I started my weight loss journey I use to think that I could lose weight simply by eating healthy. It worked for a while, but I eventually realized that you need to work out to lose weight. I recently joined my local YMCA. They have financial assistance for people if you cant afford the $55 a month fee. They don't turn anyone away! We are fortunate to have a really nice one here where I live. They have over 100 machines to work out on, an indoor track, basketball and racquetball coats. They also recently constructed a huge indoor pool with a large hot tub, sauna and steam rooms. I have been going there 6 times a week. At first I was a little uncomfortable going because I am overweight, but now that I have been going there a few weeks I am over that. If you don't have a gym where you live, or are not comfortable going there you can go out for a walk a few times a week.

Just because you are trying to lose weight does not mean you have to give up on the foods you love. Just make healthy choices and be careful of your portion sizes. I allow myself one day a week to eat whatever I want to. Sunday I made pizza with home made whole wheat pizza dough, fat free cheese, bell peppers, olives, and turkey pepperoni. It was great! You shouldn't be going hungry. Remember, it's not a diet, it's a change you are making for life.

Top Tips!!!!
1. Drastically cut the Big 3 - Sugar, Sodium, and bad fat (not all fats are created equal)
2. Eat healthy. It's not a diet, it's a new way of life.
3. Exercise - try to do at least 30 minutes of cardio 6 days a week.
4. Journal foods and exercise every day accurately. Always aim for at least a 500 calorie a day deficit.
5. Get enough sleep. 8 hours if possible.
6. Avoid or eliminate eating out. No fast food!
7. No soda. Diet soda is now being shown to be actually worse then regular because people are eating more thinking they saved all the calories from the diet soda. Not to mention the aspartame!

Twinkie Diet
He probably clogged his arteries more in two months then some do in 20 years!!!

This story reminds me of Morton Spurlock in Super Size Me. After 3 weeks the doctors told him his health was in serious danger. Yet he kept going for another week. I would be interested to know how much McD's profits went down after that documentary. I know they lost one customer, me!

They are actually exactly the same.

In scientific circles a kcal is 1000 calories but the term calorie used in dietary circles is an abbreviation for kilocalories (kcals).

so 1 calorie is equal to 1 kcal

Foods that stall weight loss?
thanks for the advise everyone. I will start eating more. Obviously the loss of my cat has had a big impact on me. I'm so upset with the vet because I thought that everything would be ok after he went there. I expected them to keep him because he was not eating and they said he had diabetes. His sugar was 400! But no, they sent him home. 19 hours later he died rite in front of me. It was horrible! I have never felt so helpless in my life! in my opinion it was 100% preventable and the vet did not do her job. I called her and went off on her today!
