I have been a yo-yo dieter since my teen years. I have given up as I cannot afford to lose another 30-60 lbs just to put 40-70 on later. I have been a stable 190 at 5 feet tall now for over a year without trying to do anything (good or bad) Any suggestions?

    Hello Mema 24 7. I understand your frustration. Your long-term pattern of yo-yo dieting indicates that your weight loss strategies have been ‘short term’ rather than being based on a ‘long-term’ lifestyle. For long-term weight management, nutrition awareness based on supporting your health is key. At this point, I suggest that you work on increasing your nutritional awareness. A good place to start is with the US Food Pyramid: http://www.choosemyplate.gov/ This web site provides basic guidelines to help you plan meals and reach your goals. Don’t give up. Check out your Body Mass Index and related health risk categories. Safeguarding your health with healthy nutrition to reach your ideal weight for life is one of the best investments of time and energy you can make.

    Interesting you wrote “I have given up” and then you ask “Any suggestions”. Which tells me you haven’t given up 🙂 When I have had clients like you, I usually recommend a goal of just eating healthier for the first month and AVOID the scale. Check out the DASH diet here:
    or The Mediterranean Diet.
