How I Lost 40 Pounds In My 50s And How You Can Too Better Humans

Spring Wellness Series Week 2

Inside: I used Noom for LONGER than just two weeks. I thought that Jason Fung was a devotee of LCHF but it seems now that, for him, fasting is paramount. I can attest to the power of fasting as I'm a 65-year-old female who lost about 60 lbs in 6 months 4 years ago following the 5:2 diet. Along with my vegetarian husband, I 'progressed' to a moderate low-carbohydrate diet and slowly regained nearly 40 lbs so we began 5:2 again in late July with already excellent results. At the same time, I reduced the amount of dairy and fat we eat, especially double cream, which I think is helping, so its a 'MCMF' diet + 5:2 which works for us, at least at the moment.

Once the balloon is in place, the patient works with their physician and their staff in a formal lifestyle modification program to meet their long-term weight loss goals. Coaching takes place over 12 months while the balloon is in place. The program is designed to help the patient develop sustainable, healthy habits that will help keep weight off over time. After up to twelve months, through another non-surgical procedure, the Orbera365 balloon is deflated and then removed.

Think about what (and how) you eat. Summer means picnics and barbecues — activities that revolve around an unlimited spread of food. Pace yourself. Don't overload your plate. Avoid going back for seconds and thirds. Choose seasonal, healthy foods like fresh fruit instead of high-sugar, high-fat desserts. Make catching up with family and friends your focus, not the food. Another good tip for summer eating is to limit frozen treats like ice cream to no more than once a week.

Taking a hike through the mountains is certainly good exercise but you don't have to break a sweat to take advantage of Mother Nature's health package. Simply being outside in green areas" has been linked to having a lower body weight, according to research done by the American Diabetes Association. And good news: The National Recreation and Park Association says the vast majority of Americans already live within walking distance of some type of park. Get out there and explore your neighborhood.
