I'll start 🙃
We've had a run of bugs, so my diet right now has been as lazy as possible. I'm going to cut back on the sugar/processed foods and up my fruit and veg to support my body.
Try to keep away from the dreaded chocolate 🍫 😋 😐 xxx
Good luck! Please share your tips 😆
Keep out of sweet shops......don't go near the confectionery ailes in supermarkets.......buy a swimsuit a size (or 2!) smaller....and make a wish xxxxx
Eat less sugar for me 😊 I do have a bit of a sweet tooth
good plan, I have a very sweet tooth and I am always having to watch my sugar intake, it tends to creep back up again (and again)
Yes, especially if feeling stressed or worried 😟
Me too! If only we hadn't been given so much darn chocolate for Christmas I'd be starting tomorrow!
Now you know not to blame having it. Do yourself a favour and give it away or at least halfof it. You might well make someone's day..Good luck xxxx
Enjoy! A little won't hurt 😊
In fairness, it's mostly a selection of tiny Green and Black's chocolate bars at this point, so it's definitely under the bracket of "a little"
keep up with running x3 per week
all of the above! but I put 'other' because I plan to eat way, way, more greens
Not much change for me as I managed to lose a stone quite easily with LCHF and plan to carry on the same way. Hope you all have a happy and healthy 2023!
I picked: loose weight, drink more water, eat more fruit/vegetables and my other is get more exercise during the day.
Great poll, Cooper27 . 😀👍
I'll join you with the exercise one I've just become a hermit thanks to this cold, the weather hasn't helped here.
Do you want to do stationary bike riding?
Not the biggest fan, our lockdown stationary bike was used twice! But the treadmill got a lot if use, I should just clear the boxes off if it
Spend less time sitting in front of my computer/telly
Starting a Paleo diet!
Some of these are dietary changes (eating more, eating less), some are active lifestyle (running, jumping, skipping). I am already doing what I can on all fronts there, eating a plant rich diet and aiming for 6000 steps every day while meditating and coping with the side effects from my cancer medication. I also want to stay financially solvent, pain free and cognizant while maintaining my current weight, not overly stressing my loving wife and feeling as though I have done something rewarding every day. I think that needed a slightly longer questionnaire!
Must confess that my hba1c is on the way up and now at 41. So my goal is to get it back down to about 37. (again)
Reverse pre-diabetes diagnosis which came out of nowhere !
Oh no! Are you doing LCHF for that?
I started LCHF for the same diagnosis and managed to reverse it while losing weight at the same time. Good luck, I hope your diagnosis doesn’t develop into the real thing 🤞
Review with a dietician - no point in giving up something I enjoy unless I really have to 😀
I plan to try a few more plant based meals. I really need to get more veg and fruit into my diet. Plus it will help with my weight loss as I am a member of the weight loss support community.
This is a great thread, thank you Cooper27.
May I wish everyone a Happy New Year and hope that 2023 will be kind to us all.
You'll be in good hands on WLS what sort of meals are you thinking of?
I am currently looking through some vegetarian/vegan cookbooks to get some inspiration. I am a terrible carnivore so plant based meals are not so easy for me. I do need to cut back on meat though so will see how it goes. I will take things slowly and just try a couple of new recipes a week to begin with.
My high fibre low sugar regime works well for me, keeps my weight just right and seems to be maintainable indefinitely.
Id like to start exercising regularly - I was moderately fit before I had covid. Several health concerns (both due to covid and separate) make this very hard.
That's tough - how long have you been affected by Covid?It's never easy finding the balance of exercising enough to give you energy, but not so much you exhaust yourself.
Finding the correct epilepsy medication. These all have side effects, mostly weight gain no matter what foods one eats! Seizure control is vital.
Continue with intermittent fasting which seems to be working slowly.
I’m late to the conversation as usual 😅, but I think one of my biggest goals this year (along with cutting back on added sugars), is going to be to just really be aware of what I’m eating. I eat plant based and we don’t eat out a lot, so I want to get a little more creative with meals that I make.
Try to stick closely to low saturated fat diet. I have raised cholesterol levels.
