Losing weight - General

Order yourself a latte, and a pastry (The virtual cinnamon buns are excellent today). And have a nice chat.

Well done Herbi. It's annoying as something so simple in theory can be so hard to do in practice. I think my main aim is to banish my sweet tooth and watch my portion sizes , plus get exercising much more. No excuse as I live literally five minutes from the beach

Well, I seem to have put on half the weight I lost in the last year ! :o :( :cry: ... could it really have been that tub of celebrations I have consumed since Boxing Day or eating far too many leftovers .. :shock: :? :( :cry: :rolleyes:

Haha it's always so easy to put on and so hard to get off . I've done myself a rough meal plan today of breakfasts of porridge/ fruit/ eggs, lunches of soups or salad and dinner I'm going to try at least 2-3 servings of veg plus whatever protein source . Yoghurts , fruit or hard boiled eggs for snacks

Just how I am feeling Pat! I think I'm going to do a 4 day juice diet because I know it works for me to get me back on the straight and narrow ... after I've finished all the biscuits and cheese that is :lol: :lol:

I certainly feel sluggish lately but that has nothing to do with it just being Christmas. I don't tend to vary my intake according to what day of the year it is. What varies is my output depending on circumstances. So recently due to physical inabilities I have started to feel a little over the weight I would prefer to be. I go by feel. I have not owned a set of scales in over two decades. I get obsessed! If a medic or a gym weigh me I ask them to keep it to themselves because if I know what I weigh, it messes with my mind! I am happier not knowing but also make sure that if I do start to feel uncomfortable, I don't feel guilty about eating any food, I just up my output.

I find that winter months (often stodgy, warming foods) and times of stress make me put on weight, warmer months (salads and lighter foods) and illnesses have made me lose. In my mind, anything in between it should be easier to maintain and be healthy and happy around both eating and doing exercise that I enjoy.

That's how I 'roll'. Well, hopefully not 'physically roll'! :lol:

Puddings and chocolate are pretty much the source of my weight gain. I don't eat that much, and never eat until I feel full.

Tezza I know what you mean about getting obsessed with weighing oneself. (I tend to get a bit obsessive about dieting too, if I have to do it, and about gyms, the one time I did that.) However when I had my massive weight gain back in 2012-2013, I think not daring to weigh myself is partly what made it get out of hand. (Although when I did diet, I still struggled to lose weight probably because of the meds I was on.) For me, it's easier to go into denial without some external, objective indication of how things are proceeding (and for some reason, going up a dress size didn't seem to constitute this!) But I know we each do these things our own way.

When I was younger, salad or soup lunches for a week, and no other diet tweaks would cause me to lose at least 2lbs a day, although back then I hardly ever ate anything sweet. Alas gone are those days... (and I'd probably get hypoglaecemia and cramp if I tried it.)

Anyone else listening to You and Yours on BBC4 at the moment ? All about losing weight and keeping it off ... listeners are calling in with their success (or lack of success) stories ... At the moment the guy who led the research into the effects of drastic weight loss on type 2 diabetes . He has just explained there is a big difference in what you need to eat to lose weight and how to maintain weight ..

Me ? I am sitting here at the moment eating my lunch of fresh salmon with lettuce, spring onions, celery and some of Nigella's braised red cabbage (as it needs to be used up ) :rolleyes:

Did you hear the man from Hotel Chocolate - who was given only the briefest of time to say exactly what I think. Chocolate is not fattening . What wa being referred to today is confectionary not chocolate (ie sugar laden) and should NOT be called or labelled chocolate.It is not a craving for chocolate that results in eating things like Mars bars, it is a craving for sugar. If chicldren were brought up to have a square of real chocolate it would cost no more and they might actually prefer it and get more pleasure from it.

A favourite gouter (home from school snack) here is a square of real chocolate in a piece of fresh baguette.

There is a theory that the body does the opposite when in starvation mode. I've a friend who fasts for 24 hours once a week (as did Stanley Matthews for those of a certain vintage). He explains it in terms of our hunter gatherer years, when we didn't know where the next meal was coming from, thus it shut down the 'need to eat' gene and replaced it with 'let's use what we've eaten' gene to keep what's curently working in good condition. Adherents say it's the only way to replace brain cells - which are not normally replaceable - as we know. ;)

I've no idea how reliable the following link is, but I remember reading that in starvation conditions women become more fertile - tragically.

When it comes down to basics, it’s just:

(mass in) - (mass out) = weight change

All the rest incidental. It’s making sure you don’t die while doing it, and being fit and healthy at the end.

If you want to lose weight. Eat less. Burn more off.

I went back to Slimming World in November.
7-8 years ago I lost over 10st with them and under medical suervision while I did it. Since then I've put on about 2 st plus I could do with losing a bit more too.
Ive tried the 5:2 which worked well for my health but not for my weight so it was back to SW. I've lost 11.5lbs and only gained 1.5 over Christmas.

When I do a lot of cooking I just don't eat. I might taste but only a few atoms each time. I've lots about 3 kgs in the same number of weeks. I never ever weigh myself I just know from my trouser waist bands.

I weighed myself this morning, and I was just 2lbs heavier than before Christmas. Phew! Would still like to lose some weight. I feel more uncomfortable than I used to do at this weight. Different distribution of fat? Or I've shrunk (heightwise)?!

Rats I am the same re cooking and eating. Clearly I should cook more, although not sure that it works when it's just me I am cooking for :?

There's just me here these days and I like to cook only a 2 portion meal rather than batch cook. If I batch cook I end up with a freezer full as I like to have a lot of meals fresh.
I'm I can freeze 1 portion or keep whatever it is, in the fridge to put with something else to change it about a little later in the week. For example savoury mince with dumpling one night and cottage pie 2 days later.

I usually cook one or two meals in one go when I cook. I suppose though that my rather flippant point was that although I lose my appetite while cooking, I am more inclined to eat what I've cooked in spite of this if I am only cooking it for me, otherwise there's not much point in cooking (it feels.) I ate fvery little on Christmas day because I had two others to cook for, so I felt no obligation to eat much.

I need to pull my socks up. Last night was spiced and smoked up baked beans with cheese, and tonight was a tin of Amy's Kitchen vegetarian chilli (also 'doctored') with cheese (it's actually very nice... :? ) :o Today's excuse was that it was my first day back at work and very little sleep last night, but I can't keep up the canned food diet! I shall make myself make something tomorrow.

Did anyone watch the Tom Kerridge programme? Really much the same approach as the Hairy Dieters but with the professional experts less prominent. Might be a few good recipes in there, I'll certainly try baking the mince. No mention of dopamine so far!

I bravely weighed myself this morning knowing I'd put on some, all, or posiibly more of the weight I lost a couple of years back. Relieved after all those mini stollen to find I've not quite put it all back on. Action needed though!

I watched Tom Kerridge; I was pleased he mentioned the psychological barriers to losing weight, but suspect they won't get the prominence they need in what is essentially a food programme. Interesting recipes - I might try the muffins, although in general I don't like artificial sweeteners.

The C4 programme, How to Lose Weight Well, was interesting. All the diets chosen worked for the period they were used (maximum 4 months for two of the six diets looked at) but it would be interesting to look at whether weight stayed off once the diet period was over. I suspect the thought of weight gain or loss being shown on national TV made some people stick to diets they might otherwise have given up on - one was so low calorie it could only be repeated every two years!

Yes, I watched Tom Kerridge and thought I would try the muffins, until he added artificial sweetener :sprout: ... Also dismayed as the recipes are all for at least 4 people :( His volunteers had atrocious diets before they started though, so no wonder they are managing to lose weight (apart from one who may have got the wrong idea about portions )

the trouble with all of those more short term diets is that most are unsustainable on a behavioural level. people will revert to their normal diet unless they've found a substitute that they like more than the accustomed food (or their stomachs have shrunk!).
our normal diet is quite good - so i'm just eating less of it - as befits someone of '39 and holding'.

And the same seems to be true of all the diet programmes recently on tv ... 'How to lose weight well' is another example - whatever diet is recommended for the volunteers, they, without exception will already have the crappiest diets .. However, I did like the look of 'The Bonus Years' diet that was featured this week .. ;) It involves a daily glass of red wine and very dark quality chocolate. :tu: .. the volunteer on that diet lost about 1.5 stone in 6 weeks ! :bounce:

Tom's muffins were awful! There was flavour from the sesame oil, in the first mouthful, but that faded to blandness very quickly. I couldn't taste the spices at all, although I could smell them. They were stodgy, and really stuck fast to the paper cases; so much so that a lot of the muffin was wasted - perhaps that's what made them lower calorie! :lol:

They were touted as 'lower calorie' than a standard muffin, but the calorie counted muffins I could find online were lower in calories than these - perhaps those were 'healthy' muffins too. Anything with fresh fruit in tends to get put in the 'healthy' category.

I often find that when you look at the calories content of so called lower calorie recipes, they are in fact higher in calorie than a normal recipe.
