I am definitely going to have to direct one of my coworkers to this site. She works at a nutrition clinic and she helps a lot of people with eating disorders and people struggling with weight loss issues and other things like that. I am sure she will be interested in these people and what they have to say. Thanks for the share.
I think it’s a great opportunity to be learning from them, they are experienced professionals in areas that interest me the most, as I am somewhat overweight and I am always eager to know more about nutrition.
Great tips overall. I’m currently undergoing a dietary change, and it can be tough trying to find the right foods to eat. There are so many convenience foods, and it can be tempting to grab them. I’m trying to steer clear of as much processed food as I can. I haven’t kicked them all to the curb yet, but I try my best to make the best decisions when it comes to my selection.
One of my absolute favorite kitchen tools that has helped me eliminate pasta is my spiral veggie slicer. I LOVE it. So far I’ve only spiralized squash and zucchini, both veggies I thought I hated, and made casseroles and “spaghetti.” The best part is, the family loves it too!
It can be tough not to want my excess weight to just drop off instantly! Sarah is right though. The weight gain wasn’t instant, and the weight loss isn’t going to be either. Besides, a major weight loss too quickly probably isn’t healthy.
I love the advice about how to encourage your kids to eat healthier. Focus on the health benefits but avoid the topic of weight. The weight loss will naturally come as you get healthier!
That’s the whole issue Rhonda, it’s a big temptation because we are trying to eat better, but there is junk food all over the place around us. One good tip would be to carry healthy foods or snacks with us for whenever we are hungry.
