I need weight loss BUT I need energy

I need weight loss but I have mobility problems. I take a lot of medication but probably the killer is NO energy. I have sleep problems that don't help my energy levels. I need a miracle. I make the effort to lose weight but because it will be a long term thing it jumps back on the second i stop dieting. I am so tired. I have 8 points for a gastro op and only need 3 but my health authority is broke and said no. I thought of moving 5 miles away to a heath authority who would give it to me but why should i have to move to get the op I need. Its like living in the wrong part of the world. I wake up so tired . I'm sure it would help me lose weight if i had some energy.

Take a look at Low GL food plans. I am a diabetic so I do understand where you are at. I have to rush out now but I'll look up a list I found about carbs when I get back and I'll point you to it. I'll be back tonight. Google Low GL and see what you can find.

Keep carbohydrate intake between 10 and 14 portions per day (1 portion = 10g carbohydrate), ideally 3 meals x 4 carb portions. uk.sitestat.com/diabetes/we...

Eat low GI carbs glycemicindex.com/

Make up the balance of your meals with natural, additive-free, unprocessed protein and fat foods

You might try google searches for diabetic support groups. I bet they have members who have a lot of suggestions. You might also try a search for diabetic recipes or diabetic food ideas, or similar search terms.

I don't have diabetes, but I do have mobility issues, due to multiple back surgeries and other injured discs that have not been surgically removed. I take more medications now than my granny used to and she had diabetes and a triple by-pass. I remember seeing her take her medications when I was a kid and thinking "wow that's a lot." I guess that joke is on me now.

I am taking Phen375, which is a natural weight loss suppllement. I am having some success with is. One main thing is my energy level is up. You can find out more about it at goo.gl/f8eyzn

Good luck and I hope some of these ideas help.


Perhaps this link on diabetes may have some useful information. It's written by a doctor.
