Hi, I am new to Health Unlocked and new to structured diet plans. I am into my 2nd week of the NHS diet plan although I did drastically reduce my food intake about a month prior to that. I am used to diets though, i.e. eating less. I am a man of 68, I am 5'11 and weigh 82 kg. I would like to lose about 10kg. My main problem is that I have a large/huge belly, the type sometimes referred to as a beer belly. I drink very little beer, in fact the last beer I had was six weeks ago. Without exaggeration, I look pregnant with twins!!! My belly isn't flabby, it is rather firm.
Whatever I have done before I have successfully lost weight, but never off my belly. In fact the more weight I lose the more pronounced my belly becomes! I walk regularly, about 8 miles a day, so I consider myself reasonably fit. I do not puff or pant when walking and if I had the time I would walk further. I have become very careful about my carbohydrate and starch intake.
So, I wonder is there someone out there who can suggest something that will work, not just in theory but in practise. It would be lovely to hear from someone who has had a similar problem and overcome it.
Any help and advice would be very much appreciated especially as I have become increasingly embarrassed by the way I look. My belly is what triggered my diet in the first place.
Do I need liposuction??
Thank you all for reading this.
