Questions and Answers
I have had bulimia for a very long time and tried EVERYTHING to get better, whilst trying to lose a bit of weight. I'm not looking to go crazy skinny, I just want to feel better about the way I look without ending up binging and purging.
So for the last two days I have done the cookie diet (I only got a trial pack so today is the last day of the trial) which has been the most fantastic thing ever. I get to eat every two hours, it is fairly sweet so it helps with that part of my disorder. They are special cookies so they have the nutrients I need in them, and therefore I don't get hungry. Plus at the end of the day I get a 500-700kcal meal, which is a bigger meal than I ever have, so I don't feel like I'm restricted. There are no banned foods. It suits my disorder perfectly. It totals to exactly 1200kcal (I haven't gone more or less) and I have been exercising, no more than usual, although I did have a break for a few weeks due to a death in the family. Yet I get on the scales each day, and it has gone up by 0.1kg each day. I know it doesn't sound like much but it freaks me right out. Is this water weight? Or my body clinging to fat? I never have 2000kcal (I know I should but I just find that too difficult right now) I always aim for 1200kcal but always end up binging and purging. So this is the first 2 days I have managed to not do that. The cookie diet is not a perminent fix,Is my weight going to keep going up, or will I eventually lose after a while?
Hi there, ill share with you 3 effective ways
– Eliminate Sugars and Starches
The most important part is to remove sugars and starches (carbs) from your diet.
These are the foods that stimulate secretion of insulin the most. If you didn’t know already, insulin is the main fat storage hormone in the body.
When insulin goes down, fat has an easier time getting out of the fat stores and the body starts burning fats instead of carbs.
Bottom Line: Removing sugars and starches (carbs) from your diet will lower your insulin levels, kill your appetite and make you lose weight without hunger.
– Eat Protein, Fat and Vegetables
Each one of your meals should include a protein source, a fat source and low-carb vegetables. Constructing your meals in this way will automatically bring your carb intake into the recommended range of 20-50 grams per day.
Bottom Line: Assemble each meal out of a protein source, a fat source and a low-carb vegetable. This will put you into the 20-50 gram carb range and drastically lower your insulin levels.
Exercise 3-4 Times Per Week(optional)
You don’t need to exercise to lose weight on this plan, but it is recommended.
The best option is to go to the gym 3-4 times a week. Do a warm up, lift weights, then stretch.
THERE is a product called yacon syrup which is 100% natural and is really great for weight loss.
I'm 13 and a girl. I really don't like the way i look,mainly my belly fat. I do sit ups(on and off (20)) drink plenty of watch and eat a lot of fruit (2 a day)and some not so healthy foods…. I tried a pair of pants in store i really liked but when i got the for Christmas a month later they didn't. I just want to lose it! It's taking over my life so far I've been on web-sight over web-sight looking for ways. Please help!!!!!! 🙁
Aim for fit and health, and you're 13, don't stress so much about it, it's fine to have junk food in moderation but there's tons of yummy recipes you can make too, like stewed apples with brown sugar & cinnamon
eliminate dairy, reduce your meat intake, switch to coconut, almond, rice, hemp milk, make sure you get your omega 3 (hemp seeds, walnut). Gluten could be hindering your weight loss.
2 fruits a day is not a lot at all, you should eat a minimum of 5, the more the better, here is a myth about fruits from a nutritionist
4. Fruit is just 'sugar and water'
I have heard several people say this, one being the afore mentioned Zoe Harcombe who seems to think that fruit is the devil's work and other poorly qualified or non-trained lay people. I once heard someone advise a dancer to eat 'hot cross buns for energy as fruit is just sugar and water'.
I need to stress at this point, if anyone does actually tell you this big fat fruit lie, they have NO knowledge of nutrition at all.
Fruit has a wide nutritional profile – anyone reading my blog will know this, as I often give the full nutrient breakdown of my fruit meals – including fats, healthy carbs, proteins, minerals and vitamins.
Just to illustrate, here is a breakdown of the minerals and vitamins in one of my favourite 800kcal breakfast smoothies:
5. Fruit is too high in sugar
Hopefully the above post already covered this somewhat but lets start with a little biological science for you. The primary fuel of the human body is Glucose, yes SUGAR. Sugar is so essential to cellular functioning that if we don't eat enough foods containing 'sugars' then our bodies cleverly break down fats to convert to glucose instead. This process is rather wasteful and inefficient, but it is necessary as without enough sugar we die – it's a simple as that. Consider how complex our blood sugar regulation systems are, we have special feedback systems with hormone activation for if the blood sugar is too high OR too low. Why is this so sophisticated? As I said before without a constant stream of glucose to our cells and especially to our brain, we die.
The problem is we've thrown out the baby with the bathwater and lumped all healthy carbs under the banner 'sugar' without differentiating between whole carbs and isolated sugars, or 'intrinsic' and 'extrinsic' sugars.
Intrinsic sugars are those that naturally occur inside a wholefood, such as the carbohydrates inside fruit, vegetables and grains. Extrinsic sugars are those that have been removed from their natural food source and isolated, this can also mean sugars that have been artificially manufactured.
To keep it simple just think: intrinisc sugars/carbs are ESSENTIAL and extrinsic sugars/carbs are to be avoided at all costs. All table sugars (no matter how 'raw' or 'organic') are extrinsic as are things like molasses, honey, agave nectar, date syrup, yacon, Xylitol, Sucanet, palm sugar, coconut sugar.
Healthy intrinisc sugars are whole fruits, whole grains and starchy vegetables like sweet potato and squash.
There is LOTS of confusion around this area and words like Carbs, Sugars and Starches are often used incorrectly.
To bust the lie apart though, fruit is not 'too high in sugar' as all natural whole fruits are low to medium on the Glycaemic Index and have a low Glycaemic Load – this by default makes them low sugar foods. Unlike refined grains (pasta, white bread etc) which is high on the glycaemic index (can you see the irony here about someone saying that fruit is just sugar but hot cross buns are ok) and therefore a high sugar food. The highest sugar foods are foods that are manmade with lots of refined sugar and refined grain (cake, chocolate and candy). Isolated sugars are all super-high on the glycaemic index with isolated glucose in pole position at 100.
