Don't Let Being a Picky Eater Make You Overweight.

Don't Let Being a Picky Eater Make You Overweight.

 

Don’t let being a picky eater make you fat. Many of you pride yourself in being picky. Many of you tell us what you will and won’t eat.. “un..um… I do not eat vegetables; I do not eat eggs..the only meat I eat is turkey”.

Now while not eating certain foods is ok, I ask that you don’t close your mind to new foods. You must be willing to change your diet and lifestyle. If the foods you were eating before you joined the program are the foods that are making you gain weight, then maybe you will have to change. Switch Yogurt for Greek Yogurt (carbs and protein must be equal). Give up crackers for Low carb pita slices. Give up pasta for Dreamfield pasta.

For every food, you think you must have there is a lower carb alternative. I encourage you to spend a few extra minutes in the store reading labels. Your grocery store visit may take 15 minutes longer but you will eventually get faster and learn the key words (like sugar-free, high protein) on labels that indicate high protein items and low carb items. You and your children did not learn the alphabet or math after hearing it once. You practiced. Practice the dietary concept until it becomes part of your life….just like the alphabet and numbers.

Don't Be Your Own Doctor

Would you rather do your own plan (a plan you have tried several times), or try a plan given to you by a medical doctor who only studies weight loss and weight-related medical issues. 

One Bad Day Does Not Destroy Your Program

Okay. So you had a bad day. Don't beat yourself up over it, and don't let one bad decision send you spiraling out of control. Refocus and get right back to the dietary concept at your next meal.

Don't Protect Yourself from Future Hunger By Overeating

Many people in an attempt not to be hungry will eat more food than necessary. For example, we had one VLCD patient who would eat two meal replacements at a time because she felt one meal replacement would not be enough food. One would suffice.

Video Visits on Your Phone or a PC

We now offer Video Chat remote visits (Telemedicine). If coming into the clinic is an issue we now have software that allows us to do some medical visits via Webcam or the camera or your cell phone.

Are You Hungry or Bored?

When that hunger pang hits, ask yourself if you are really hungry? Often we use food to get us through the day for many reasons that have nothing to do with hunger. Many times we are just bored, angry, lonely, tired or thirsty.
