I have lost a little weight since i have been swimming and it has motivated me to lose more. diabetes runs in my family and it tends to happen around weight gain. My mom was diagnosed around my age and I really want to avoid that diagnosis, I have enough problems!

I want to lose weight but I know excessive exercise can be bad for lyme and I don't want to skimp on meals.

Do you guys have any suggestions? healthy low fat foods?

The only way to lose weight is to eat less and move more. And eating less is the most important of the two. Current research shows that people who keep weight off the longest are the ones who lose it fastest... like the massive weight loss after bariatric surgery. Bariatric surgery forces you to live off of about 500 calories per day... guaranteeing weight loss. But you can do that without surgery.

I lost 90 lbs while eating about 750 calories per day. The first week was hard, but after that the stomach adjusts, and I didn't even want more food.

LowER carb, low glycemic index foods, plenty of protein, NO SUGAR, little to no fruit .. that should do it.

No white foods.

Also: food combining really helps. That means do not eat proteins with simple carbs. For example, do not eat bread, grains or potatoes with proteins. Do not eat fruit with anything else.

If you improperly combine foods, the food cannot digest and it just sits and ferments in your gut.

See my post on Bad news Good news. Low carb, no sugar, milk, fruit, starches, breads, carrots, peas, corn, pop, etc.

Good protein every meal, veggies every meal. 30 pounds down in 3 months and all of my numbers improved.

I have a good time wherever I go!

While excellent attention to nutrients - and FLAVOR - from read food are important . . .

Some myths about why weight is gained or how it is lost are really wrong when chronic infection enters the picture. It's very intricate.

I've heard richard simmons is pretty good but with lyme atkins might be better.

I agree with keeblers statement about weightloss being different with infections

I taught pe for 30 yrs and remember being taught that weight depends on calories in calories out(food in, exercise out)

But over ten yrs ago a study came out showing that isnt true-there are many more variables

Also i have always been taught slow and steady loss is much healthier and lasts longer

I lost 60 lbs with oprah and that liquid diet back in the day. In six months i lost 60. Two months later i had gained back 80 and my metabolism has never been the same. I think they call it starvation syndrome or something

On that show the 600 lb weight loss it states right up front that the bariatric surgery only works 5% of the time...many are able to even gain weight after the surgery. I sometimes wtch that show to motivate myself to lose in a more sensible way. Like many new drugs the tx here can kill you or ruin your life. Seriously look into it if you are considering surgery

Im too sick to post links about this facts but i know i am right. Maybe someone can find them easily
