Lose Weight, Live Longer
I was up to 207 pounds, I'm old and 5"9". Skinny build. I get fat around my belly, no where else. I am a cheesburger shake and fries and soda nut. I am old but left to my own devices I eat like I'm 16. My blood pressure was through the roof. I'd get light-headed from just standing up or bending over. My dentist made me sign a waiver before he'd touch me, due to the high blood pressure.

I did Nutrasystem, still on it, I'm at a little over three months. Today I weigh 166. I got into my old race leathers! The good news is yesterday I tried out the new blood pressure machine at Walmart. I was dreading the results and when it showed perfectly normal, I nearly fell of of the thing.

Re: Lose Weight, Live Longer
Sorry to rain on your parade--- but the real challenge will be keeping your weight off. But, congrats about losing the weight anyway--- remember though that the initial weight loss is only 20%of the struggle..

I have done Nutrisystem twice over the years--- and each time I have eventually gained back much MORE weight than I had lost, due to the diabolical lowering of my metabolism through dieting/calorie restriction.

I hope you are not the same as me (each person is different)--- but calorie restriction very often has the effect of lowering the set point down another few hundred calories per day-- making it even more impossible to keep the weight off for a few years after the diet.

Now that you have lost the weight, the real battle will begin--- maintenance.

.... at less daily calories than it took to maintain your weight before!!!

One thing that may help, though is reducing your insulin levels

Insulin causes the body to store calories as fat. Refined carbs, carbs and protein cause insulin levels to rise.

We can reduce insulin levels by fasting two or more times a week for at least an 18 hour period. , i.e. from 5pm till 11 am the next morning-- or by limiting the window of feeding to only 8 hours per day, with just water for the rest of the day.

This way your insulin system gets a rest.

I was overweight especially around the stomach too. Went vegetarian and lost almost 20 lbs. in a few months. Exercise and vitamins too. All meat ever did for me was give me a gut and clog up my arteries.
