A Patient Advocate's View

Maintaining a healthy weight.

Dean  Witherspoon  Dean Witherspoon just posted a new white paper — Small Steps or Giant Leaps: What Works Best for Health Behavior Change? https://hesonline.com/free-stuff/whitepapers/smallsteps
In it he talks about the difference between lasting weight loss experienced by people who lose weight quickly, but put it all back on and those who are able to lose it quickly and then keep it off. He mentions the “Biggest Losers” diet as one in which the people are not able to maintain the weight loss because the program is too strenuous. In comparison, he shows that people who try to make just small changes, like taking the stairs instead of the elevator, will not be able to maintain their weight loss program because the rewards are just too small for the person to feel incentivized. That last one describes me.
I came to realize that most of my clients who suffer from diabetes, heart disease, COPD and cancer have all been overweight. Knowing what to do and how to do it were not enough to help these people to lose weight. Several of my clients in nursing homes have finally lost weight only because their meals are prepared for them by a dietician and there is no way for them to get other foods.
Rather than wait to take that drastic step, I am starting the Nuvo Ultimate Fat Loss Diet TODAY! http://www.newmenow.com This is a four stage program in which you lose weight rapidly while learning to maintain the weight at the same time. It is doctor and nutritionist supervised. It has many of the successful aspects of the programs that Dean talks about, including eating real food, not the shakes and bars that have been my (unsuccessful) go to plan for over twenty years.

Another part of the plan is using EFT, Emotional Freedom Technique to help you through the stressful times, and reduce the chance of emotional binging. I found a great EFT video that you can tap along with, from the Mercola people. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IWu3rSEddZI
Wish me well. I plan to post my weight loss and other experiences here, so look for the before and after pictures by the end of summer. Yes, this is one of the things a successful diet starts with, letting people support you.
