In Topic: Can Not Stop Gaining Weight!

08 January 2008 - 06:57 PM

And I don't agree with those who say "a calorie is a calorie." I have seen with myself that while total calories are always a consideration, it's the composition of the foods that make all the different in my own case. If I ate 1500 calories of eggs, leans meats & veggies I'd be fine and probably lose weight. If I ate 1500 calories of breads/starches/fruit/sugar things I'd bloat up like a pig and put on 10 pounds very quickly doing that for a few days.

Control your cravings by limiting, or preferably eliminating sugars, starches, and other high carb-low nutrient foods. It only takes a couple of days to lose ALL the cravings.

I think you are totally right about this. If you eat 1500 empty calories - then you're just hungry and irritable too. I've been watching The Biggest Loser (looking for motivation!) and they mentioned that you cannot burn calories if your body is processing sugar. That makes total sense to me. I have almost the exact same problem as you - I'm 8 days from my "year anniversary" and have put on quite a bit of weight this year. I'm absorbing food for once, but haven't changed the amount I eat. I also had the - I have to give up so much - but I can still have candy - mentality. That's been hard for me. My big problem is hunger. I started my diet Jan 1 and I'm hungry all of the time. I don't count calories - I do weight watchers - and have been trying to exercise everday. I'm going to try and cut out the candy starting tomorrow! :lol:

Thanks for the cereal idea! I got about 2 ounces in him that way this morning. And the fruit smoothie thing worked. I used bolthouse - no sugar added 100% juice smoothie - about 1/3 of that 2/3 of milk. He LOVES the blueberry :)
I also mixed the chocolate with half plain and he drank a whole cup. I guess it was just too rich for him. So we're getting there:) THanks for the help!

I had my first baking success this weekend! Went to a family party and took peanut butter cookies. Someone saw me eating one and asked why I could have it. I said b/c they're gluten-free. They said - NO WAY!
It's super easy - but full of sugar!
1 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1 cup peanut butter
mix it really good and bake at 350 for about 10 minutes...
Tastes exactly like my old peanut butter cookies :)

I'm so sorry to hear about all of your struggling!
I hope that thoughts and prayers from all of us here at this site (we're a very supportive group) will help you on your path to better health.
Have you been checked for any intolerances/diseases? There are a couple I think of when I read your story right off of the top of my head.
C-Diff. It can be caused by strong antibiotics or by people not washing hands, etc. My Grandpa and Mom have both had it after surgery when they were on strong antibiotics. It can be cured by another form of medicine. http://www.cdiffsupp...aboutcdiff.html - go to this link to learn more about it.
The other is what all of us here have - celiac disease or a gluten intolerance. You've come to the right place to learn more about this! Click away - hear our stories - you'll find others much like you. Helps you know you're not alone.
Good luck and let us know how you're doing!
