Battling Weight Loss?

6 posts in this topic

I decided to cut as much added sugar as possible out of my diet, something I'm still working on, and to help with that I decided I wanted to find some recipes for making my own fruit juice at home, with a blender. Now, I am not battling weight loss. I'm very much the opposite! If I could find a way to donate the extra weight, I could happily drop close to 100 lbs! However, I've seen several other people mention that they are underweight and struggling to maintain--or reach--a healthy weight. So, when I saw this recipe, I thought of all of you. Dunno how tasty it is, and I'd never try it myself because I despise avocado, but here it is:

Milk-Free Chocolate Milk

1 avocado

1/2 cup of Sucanat

1 1/2 cups of water

6 ice cubes

The perfect replacement for chocolate milk. It has the texture of thick cream, and the flavor is indescribably delicious. This is a dairy farmer's worst fears come true. Extremely filling, high in calories, (approximately 600) and the equivalent to a Big Mac but much better for you. Great to drink one hour before body building or long distance running. If you are trying to gain weight, this is the drink for you! You can also add a banana and cinnamon—or anything else your heart fancies, such as mango, pear or peach. Makes a great fruit dressing.

Veggies foods are good for the weight loss. 

Citrus fruits juices, green vegetables soups, green tea, raw vegetables salads are the good diet to lose the weight through diets. 

These diet control the cholesterol level and burn the fat which help to lose the excess body weight.

I have both ME/CFS and narcolepsy and a major problem I have is that I have episodes of having no sensation of hunger.  This means that I have to be careful about eating by the clock rather than because I'm actually hungry.  Over time I've found that being careful about food choices really does pay off with maintaining wellness and for me at least a largely vegetarian diet with lots of raw fruit and nuts seems to work best.  I drink green tea too which I discovered helped me with symptoms back when I was still working as a social worker.

Drinking milk makes me ill, so I use soy and basically junk food is a complete no-go zone for me.  My one vice is a particular brand of good quality Swiss chilli chocolate which is my little once a week treat.

 

Fortunately my daughter lives with me and she's very good about checking whether I've eaten which helps.  I'm basically tall and skinny so I don't have much in the way of spare weight I can shed to start with.
