I realize that the concept of Fat Loss is entirely different from Nutrition, and that when simply leading a life of proper Nutrition, Fat Loss will happen naturally.
That being said, I have seen a nutritionist and it was highly advised for an obese person with a sedentary lifestyle, the best thing to do in order to start detoxing and losing excess fat while still retaining the most vitamins is to eat foods with the most nutrients.
This means it was advised for me to do the following:
-Drink 8+ pints of water a day, (this is for my own weight, others will likely be less)
-Eat predominantly Protein, Then Fats, and Avoid Grains and Sugars altogether
-The only carbs I will want to consume are from fresh produce - vegetables and fruits.
Exercising of course, very mildly with zero impact exercise, (I did get a big-movement-range elliptical and it's great), and lots of stretching advised.
A huge tip I was given from my nutritionist as well, is to only buy foods that are one ingredient; If I want to buy meat, buy fresh meat at the counter. If I want nuts, beans, and seeds, buy in bulk as fresh as possible from a reputable local store.
I have started doing this, and by gum, I went from 291 pounds to 262 pounds in about 7 months. Slow and steady, sure, as I find although my nightly heartburn is gone, no longer having gallstone attacks, and not being fatigued anymore are great perks, but in 7 months, I should have lost a lot more weight - as I still have an addiction to SUGAR and starchy snacks.. ugh.
I find myself cracking every couple days from eating very good fresh quality foods to always wanting crap food - chips, fast food, et cetera. It's a tough addiction to crack. I'm not completely depriving myself of carbs either, apples, bananas, lemons, berries, etc. are in my diet so I'm far from Ketosis, which of course is a much more efficient state to burn fat but not great in the long run, not truly nutritious.
I was curious if anybody might have some Sugar- Crave-Kicking tips, as the whole point of this .... although overall nutrition is great, is that I would find it greatly rewarding too, to be able to for the first time in my life, fit into medium diapers, say... an M4. That's my dream diaper to buy, but right now the best fitting diapers are Sadly - either Depends Overnight plastic-backed Large, or Attends Large.
Problem is, The Depends Large Overnights Tabbed diaper standards aren't high quality at all... and the Attends 6-tabs large fit nice in the thighs but just go up WAY too high, and have no leak guards.
I have a waist size of pants/shorts of about 42-44 inches atm, and I am wondering what weight / size I may have to be realistically to fit into an M4 or a Medium Attends.
I can't wait, any tips would be greatly appreciated!
