Common Questions and Answers about Diabetic diet weight loss plan

Avatar m tn in order to get to my goal weight. Other then Weight Watchers, can anyone recommend a diet or some kind of weight loss plan which has helped you. What I don't like about the current W.W. plan is keeping track of the points. It doesn't have enough structure for me the way the old W.W. plan did from the late 70's up until about 1997. The old "Exchange" plan told you what kinds and how many proteins, low fat dairy products, grains, starchy vegetables (i.e.
Avatar n tn im needing to find a simple diabetic diet plan. the doctor gave me one but it seems really complicated. does anyone know any good sources for diabetic diet plans?
Avatar f tn Aside indulging in moderate amounts of physical exercise it is also essential to maintain a healthy diet plan. A healthy diet should consist of adequate amounts of calories with carbohydrates, proteins, fat and plenty of fruits and vegetables to supply vitamins and minerals. Skipping any of the food components is not considered healthy. Also when aiming at losing weight the protein intake may be slightly increased and the carbohydrate intake slightly lowered.
Avatar m tn Firstly, I am amazed at the weight loss that people have being having with Victoza. I am type 2 diabetic, being on Novomix for 5yrs, dieted with no results whatsoever. Then, my medical plan changed me to Biosulin 6months ago, and my sugar got out of control. I was hospitalised last week for uncontrolled diabetes.I am on the Victoza pen now for 2.5 weeks, had no side effects and lost 4 kg's. My appetite has subsided tremendously. my average 3 monthly readings was 16.5.

233622 tn?1279338505 We both lost weight ~ she had a very drastic weight loss, I didn't. I believe the difference was that on the WW program, they teach you more "how" to eat and learning good choices along with portion control. I didn't really have my daily menus planned out ~ I don't like using a menu. I really want to do it on my own. In the Jenny Craig program, my sister bought her food from them. It was already made ~ all she had to do was heat it up.
Avatar n tn keep exercising - that's going to be a really good thing to get into a routine. the gym should have personal trainers. if you can afford a session or two, try it...maybe that would give you some more ideas to add to your workout. google "diabetic diet." start eating like a diabetic needs to eat to control the disease. know what i mean? if you can follow that plan, it will help you a lot. don't get discouraged about the weight not coming off right away.
Avatar f tn I've also reduced my insulin doses at lunch and tea and overnight and I've completely stopped my morning indulin due to my weight loss. My cholesterol levels have come down too. I plan to get to a 'normal' bmi range within the next year which is around another 9 stone to lose and hopefully that will help my chances of getting pregnant. It has to happen again some day. I'm doing everything I can to help it.
Avatar n tn Getting a hard sell from a friend and fellow diabetic who's on a weight loss program called "Isagenix". Says it's great for dibetics. Just wondering if any one on the forum has any first hand knowledge/experience with this program.
Business woman1 Do you have medical conditions that make weight loss difficult? Those might include insulin resistance, hypothyroidism and/or PCOS. If you do, you have to get those under control before you will be able to lose weight.
Avatar f tn I don't have a good comprehensive plan , nor the motivation right now. About MS working against weight loss. It certainly can, because of increased inactivity and a difficulty adjusting our intake from the days when we were very active. The disease itself doesn't prevent the loss, but the effects of it do.
Avatar n tn Doc says I'am borderline diabetic and need to lose weight. The drug was prescribed to help with the weight loss. However she stressed that you still need to watch your diet and exercise. I have been doing this for a long time but kept going up and down with my weight. I am 5 4" and currently weigh 235.5. I weigh in every Tuesday and after 4 days I lost 3 pounds. I am now starting to take the meds 2 xs a day so it will be interesting to see what happens next week.
Avatar n tn Are there any doctors who give these shots in Phila.for weightloss? Where can I get them on line?
Avatar n tn It should take about 2 months to get to that dosage but I'm getting kinda excited hearing about the benefit of weight loss especially since it was weight loss pills (metabolife and xenedrine) that caused me to find out that I was epileptic in the first place! The doctor told me that i might get tingling in my fingers and i might feel a little dopy but happy dopy he described it as, so I figure i can deal with that! If I start losing weight at a rapid pace i'll definitely post again!
Avatar f tn 99 at Ikea, good deal!) so I hopped on it and I have lost over 20lbs. I was never trying to lose weight and this loss has come upon in the last 6 months. I'm not excercising any more then before can the tramadol just do that? Is it from being up all night? Is this a really bad sign or normal?
Avatar n tn The key is to follow a healthy diet plan with a balanced amount of physical activity. A healthy diet should consist of adequate calories according to ones height, weight and physical activity; with adequate amounts of carbohydrates, slightly increased proteins, little fat and plenty of fruits and vegetables to supply vitamins and minerals. Start with a healthy breakfast, moderate lunch and light dinner. Also keep a track of calorie intake and your work out.
Avatar f tn Hi there! Victoza is not recommended for weight loss alone in the absence of diabetes. With diabetes it may help to maintain weight by reducing appetite. With controlled diabetes and hypothyroidism on current medications, I would recommend exercise and diet modification to reduce weight loss. If these do not seem to help, it is advised to consult a physician for suggestion of an appropriate management plan.
Avatar f tn 3 mind you I didn't realize it dropped till I went online to check my lab work last week for other reasons. And since i started this weight loss plan I've lost nearly 30 pounds. Whoo hoo ! Now my question is do you think that drop after two weeks is accurate? And do you think it could of dropped even more after this weight loss. ?? I know it takes two readings over 6.5 to confirm diabetes so I would like to know would I be in the clear of getting diabetes if my a1c dropped even more.
Avatar n tn I have been taking metamucil for almost a week now. I am on a weight loss plan that my doctor is helping put me on. Let me tell you what. This stuff makes you go to the bathroom. LOL~! The metamucil is included w/ the plan. There are other guidelines on this diet as well. So, this stuff does clean you out pretty good lol!
1103360 tn?1258313199 , right now between 82-84 lb. loss but will continue the short trip to get the rest off. I have depleted my diet of caffeine, sodas, only drink water now, have always been complete vegetarian so no meats, fowl, fish, eggs, oil, cheese, etc. I can do all these daily exercises Hava except the mandukasan due to bilateral total knee replacements which leave me unable to be on my knees. I am overwelmed by all the great and new advice. I am off to make an appt. Thanks so much.
Avatar n tn Type two can usually be controlled very well with diet and excersize sometimes if enough weight is loss a good diet is followed and an exercise plan, the need for medication can be eliminated. I would check with your doctor as to which type you might be and the best course of action to help you maintain healthy lifestyle. Please feel free to come back and visit.
Avatar n tn I have nicely defined arms and legs. It is really exciting to weigh yourself every morning and see weight loss success. It is so motivating. I highly recommend working out while on this protocol. Good luck to you all and I will keep you posted with my friends results. It helps to keep a journal of your weight and measurements - more motivation!
Avatar n tn I KNOW it is because I am not moving my body. I stayed on the Weight Watcher's diet for 6 more months, but it wasn't working any more because I WAS NOT MOVING MY BODY! I just sit. I don't eat large amounts of food, but I don't burn off what I am taking in.
1536914 tn?1302705194 I've started waking at night with a headache so I went back taking a magnesium supplement and that seemed to do the trick for me. Congratulations on your weight loss! You are doing great. I know you are right about the yoga too. I started doing some on my Wii and really enjoying it but for some reason I stopped. I have to get back to it. :) Please do add me as a friend. I look forward to hearing how you are doing. And I plan to do better too for the new year.
1498386 tn?1403031253 I have started exercising at a gym and following a diabetic diet and lost 6kg in 3 months, the metformin also contributes to weight loss.. The cramps and pains dont go away. I need to know if anyone has overcome pcos ? Have you lost the weight completely ? Most importantly, have you managed to concieve and deliver a healthy baby ?
Avatar n tn I've been reading those threads related to the hCG shots for weight loss subject, and I suspect that once again (as it happened in 1974) the method will be misused by all those who only wish to grab a commercial profit from its use. Please let me remind you again, and again, and again, that hCG is a PRESCRIPTION drug that MUST be dispensed by a licensed Physician. hCG injections are PART of a comprehensive weight reduction program.
Avatar m tn My sugar is still great but no more weight loss. I thought this was going to be my answer to weight loss prayers. I did have a lot of nausea and loss of appetite so I guess that had a lot to do with it. I have contacted the company but haven't gotten a reply. Let me know how you do.
Avatar f tn Your husband’s transplant center should have a dietitian that can help to put together a proper diet to prevent further weight loss which can be detrimental to his overall health. I had dietary help both pre and post transplant at my center. Please contact the transplant center and let them know about this issue before he loses any more weight. Take care.
649848 tn?1534637300 I'm wondering what diet plans others have tried and what success you had, whether or not you kept the weight off, etc. If you didn't keep the weight off, would you try that same diet plan again, if so, why; if not, why? I don't believe in giving up entire food groups, such as carbs, protein, fats, etc. I believe the body needs a healthy mix of all the food groups. I'd really appreciate any ideas ya'll might have.
