I ended up fizzling out on my monthly resolution as well but not in a bad way. Instead of trying to do things on my own I consulted a nutritionist for help. I am a kidney transplant recipient and it has not been even a year for me. So my doctor suggested to consult a registered nutritionist.
The nutritionist is well known for managing medical conditions. She advised me to keep things normal as much as possible as my body is still getting used to the new organs and I have to take a lot of medicines.
She has given me a simple diet plan and this is only to get the body out of dieting mode. prior to transplant due to dialysis I had lot of restrictions due to which I have certain deficiency. So the current plan is eating everything healthy, homemade and nutritious. No distinction in carbs proteins and measurement.
I need to have a good breakfast , have a good lunch and dinner and a snack at 5. Apparently the 5 PM snack is the deciding factor in weight loss. If you crack this weight loss is easier. And if you have a good snack then automatically your cravings for junk food and heavy dinner goes down.
I have been following this for last two weeks. I have seen only 200 grams of loss which is as good as nil. but I certainly feel the difference.
I feel less hungry - Currently the plan I have is not exactly a "diet" as you would expect but it keeps me satisfied. I have less cravings and even if I cravings I am able to exercise 20 minutes rule. Rule is after 20 minutes if I still feel like eating it I will and almost 9 out of 10 times it has gone away.
Better choices- I am able to make better choices. The other day I had a heavy lunch I consciously made better choices during rest of the day. I feel in control
I am totally enjoying myself.
since its two weeks and no change she has asked me to see her again and she will be making few changes. But I am hopeful things will get moving.
so keeping the chin up and moving on till I get there
