Hi There Strangers

Thinking 27 April 2010 | 3 Comments

I'm back looking for some tips, someone willing to give me some ideas and advice.

It's obvious to myself I am backed up against a wall and I need to make BIG changes. I keep saying this, one day it will stick. Soon. My metabolism is non-existent so I can't just make little changes I have to change everything.

I feel like nothing I do makes a difference, this feeling holds me down.

Lately I'm making more smoothies and am trying Almond milk. I'm bringing more salads to work. We've been grilling a lot at home lately and making more food for dinner.

I'm not working out much, or not nearly enough. I feel so dragged down, like I'm being pulled down or someone is sitting on me. I feel if the food I eat is helping me more than hurting me I'll have more energy.

I'm meeting with another doctor soon, a weight specialist who I hope can lead me in the right direction. I really need someone to help me figure out from the foods I like what I can eat. I hate fake sugar and try to avoid it.

So do you have food/snack ideas or recipes? I'd appreciate the help.

    I’m so sorry that you are still struggling. I did a post a while back that listed a TON of snack ideas. There were also a lot of good ideas in the comments. Here’s the link:

    I’ve been having ‘graze’ boxes delivered to work. They contain nuts, seeds, dry fruit, crackers etc and they’ve really helped me cut down on my sugary snacking as my blood sugar stays stable throughout the day.

    I don’t think this company operate in the US but there must be something similar there

    Maybe you should try eating 5-6 small meals a day rather than 3 big ones. This way you are getting the same amount of calories, but spread out throughout the day to give you a more stable energy level
