Operation starvation ....

Post by Sheena on Mon 21 Feb 2011 - 9:31

was successfully started this morning. So far so good.

Food is not really my problem so should be okay.

I stood on the scale this morning to find I have actually put on another 4 kgs since last seeing Tabitha. WOO HOO, how exciting. I thought my pants were getting a bit tighter. I am now more motivated than ever.

I have exactly 20kgs to lose but I am going to break it down to two sets of 10. Will get through the first 10 and then worry about the next set.

I have told DH that I am going into hiding for at least 4 weeks until I am in a set routine. This diet is VERY strict. There is no room for a glass of wine or anything so socialising becomes a little tricky hence HIDING.

I know it is not a way of life but I have to do this for ME.

Good Luck Sheena. What diet is it that you are going on?

I have decided that after Cameron's birthday party and after-braai this coming weekend, I am giving up alcohol. I swear that is why I gain a kilo every flippen monday. This weekend I had a few brutal fruits and wallah, gained all that I lost during last week

Thanks Wannabemom, I have been on weigh-less and weight-watchers and gained weight which was why I went to the dietician in the first place. SO annoying.

I am going back onto my Sure-Slim diet that I did many years ago. I have slagged this diet to every person I know because I don't believe it is the best way to lose weight nor is it sustainable in the long term (for me at least) but for now I am so desperate and it worked so well the last time that I am going to give it a go. DH, mum, Eileen & my sister think I am mental but no one gets it. I am TOTALLY DESPERATE.

Sheena there is also the TLC diet, its very very strict too, you cant even have certain spices in your food, but it should not be a diet it should be a lifestyle.
Also Sheena, I maybe wrong, but I think that your weight problem is because of the insulin resistance, the pcos and the hormone problems. You need to see someone that specialises in this.When I went to see Dr Volshenk about ivf, he did some tests and said that I have pcos and have to go on a special diet for it, he recommended someone that he sends all his patients too but it takes months to get an appointment with her coz she is so busy.If you are interested I think that you should phone Dr Volshenk and get the details.

Again Sheena I know you can do this.

Alot of people ditch Sure-Slime and TLC and Medi-Shape and my diet which was like Dr Cohen BUT those diets worked. I lost alot of weight and didn't gain all I've lost plus another 30kg like I was warned. Instead after 2 years of leading a normal eating lifestyle - I started picking up mainly cause I didn't use the keyword - which is MODERATION...

If you do Weigh-less, Weight-Watchers, Sure-Slim or USN or Herbalife - you can keep it off. I have before. Just don't pigout like alot of people do and then blame the diet.

I've been on Weigh-less almost about 10 times (not lying to you) - My first visit to WL was when I was 13 years old. Over the years I would lose my weight with WL and then pick it all up and more (so if I had that kind of mentality I could say it's weigh-less) but I always knew its me. Not the diet (or the healthy lifestyle etc etc). It's you who controls maintenance.

But anyway. Sure-Slim works. I've seen it work and one very good example of someone who maintains weight with Sure-Slim is Meekster.

So go for it. Go into hiding. Do what you have to do - cause in the end, You will feel better and at this stage - that is all that matters.

Sheryl, I know that my issues are from the PCOS and I am seeing a specialist on the 4th of March.

I was referred to a specialist dietician who I have been with for over two years now. She is fantastic and I owe my life to her. She was the one who diagnosed most of my issues and has helped me in the right direction to get to the bottom of them.

Initially her eating plan worked well but then it started doing the same thing as the Weigh-Less and Weight-Watchers. My weight stood still, would not budge and then slowly started going up again.

I still LOVE her way of life and eating but right now it is NOT working for me anymore. I will tell anyone to go to her before doing what I am doing now.

I have done both and the low GI is most definitely the healthier, varied, nicer option if you have no issues. I hope after doing sure-slim for a while I can slowly revert to the low GI lifestyle but right now I am so desperate I am willing to have my stomach removed so am going to do this properly and see where it gets me.

If I still don't lose anything then I am doomed cause this is the last option.

Will also see what the Dr has to say on the 4th as well.

Thanks for the support Adele. You have been great throughout my endless battle. I feel a bit like a hypocrite because I do slad sure-slim but I finally understand what utter desperation does to one. I have to lose this weight! I don't have a choice anymore.

Sheena, I am interested to know what you are eating on your Sure Slim diet because I have been doing it for 6 months now and have lost 18kg in total, but I don't feel like it is a starvation diet. Maybe different blood group|???

Lee, I got my plan 10 years ago so I am sure it has changed a lot since then but mine is SERIOUSLY limited and very miniscual.

I am actually going to see them on Saturday morning and they are going to see if I need to redo it etc. I recently did a whole lot of bloods for the Dr so they said they can use those to look at and see if I need to change anything.

I honestly think it has changed a lot over the years cause a lot of medical aids are supporting whereas when I did it everyone said it was a fad diet.

I was reading it again last night and you do get enough of the food groups just my portions are TINY and VERY limited to what I am allowed to eat.

Again, I will never slag anyone or their diet again because when one is desperate they will eat grass if they have to.

Lee, do yourself a favour and go out and eat the greasiest meal you can find. Often that is all it takes to boost the system again.

My dietician made sure that one meal a week was the fattiest most disgusting thing you could find. She said that it almost shocks your body into losing the next few kgs. Try it and see.

Also wanted to ask you. What is your menu like for a day. Want to see how different our plans actually are.

I had oats with skim milk for breakfast, lunch is a salad (lettuce & cucumber) with cheese (edam-balls) and an apple, dinner probably smoked mackeral and salad or veg followed by a mango. I am allowed 4 provitas/crackerbread etc a day so will have those with dinner.

I normally have either 35g oats or a bit of high-fibre bran with 75ml low fat milk, or some plain yoghurt for breakfast. Lunch is normally lettuce, 4 baby tomatoes, 1 boiled egg, 1 crackerbread, and a small chicken breast - plus 1 fruit. Supper is usually a piece of protein (chicken breast, steak, pork fillet) weighing approx 140g, and mixed roast or steamed veg - plus 1 fruit. No starch besides the crackerbread allowed. 2 litres of water a day. And no eating between meals. 5 hour gap between meals as well. I am not meant to drink milk with my tea and coffee, but that is the one cheat I allow myself! I cannot stomach black tea or coffee!!!

Yours is pretty much the same as mine except I am not allowed to mix proteins so could not have the egg and chicken breast together.

Yesterday I had crackerbread and egg for breakfast, tuna salad (Lettuce, cucumber and tomato) with balsamic vinegar for lunch (not sure if i am allowed that but seriously can't see how that can be bad) + an apple. Dinner I had my other 2 cracker bread, home made beef burger with avo, onions, tomatoe and lettuce with some green beans on the side. Was really yummy. I am sure I can do this again.

Only hard part is the weekend with the socialising. And I cannot stomach these lite carbonated drinks. They all taste REVOLTING. I used to like the Schweps (sp) lemon lite but I see they don't make it anymore.

Tried the Fanta Zero yesterday and nearly vomited.

Also can't stomach tea & coffee without milk. Wonder if it makes that much of a difference?

I gave my damn recipe book away thinking I would never use it again and there was a really nice curry recipe in there. Will have to buy another one when I go on Saturday. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

good luck guys - I can see how you could loose wight on that diet - sheens it looks like the ultimate in low GI.

I would avoid lite drinks - they have shown that those replacements mess your hormones up. Rather get sparkling water put a little lemon in(fool yourself you are not just drinking plain water).
