About the Author Dr. Kalvin Chinyere is a physician, weight-loss expert and ex-fat man. I agree, do not push yourself too hard to do something that you do not like, if you have alternatives that you like. There are aerobic classes, elliptical machines, rowing machines, swimming, and many other things that can do your body good. I am currently running stairs. Not exactly aerobic as I do not do it as long as I should, but it is something I enjoy and can do during my schedule.
Tae Bo is also good if no one knows you do it…. You guys are right. I come from the old school mentality that running is necessary. I enjoy it now, but before it was always a hassle. Many beginners think that you need to run in order to get in shape, guys like you are opening ours eyes.
Not to lose weight or for cardio benefits. That is what I am talking about. You have to get out of your comfort zone. You have to readjust what you like.
For some people, getting out of your comfort zone works, but not everyone. I lost pounds without doing strenuous cardio, because I hate strenuous cardio. There is no one formula for weight loss. Experimentation is the key. You can actually like losing weight if you find activities you enjoy. I used to enjoy running as part of an activity in my youth.
The Army taught me how to hate running. My cardio love is my road bike. The scenery changes quickly enough for me and I can vary my speed to the workout that I have planned for the day. I think running or sporting is the key to lose weight. Because I am eating a lot of junk food and fat thing, but still I get the same weight, because I am playing football 3times a week.
So, sporting is the key to succes. If you want to lose weight, you have to do more exercises for the calories you had eaten. I have been running for a while and it has been very good for me. That said, as long as you do some type of aerobic activity and maintain a decent V02 max.
They make all the difference. I agree with you too that the wear and tear running has on your joints will be detrimental after a long time of doing so especially if your gait pattern is incorrect. I myself like to do high intensity cardio and plyometrics: It helps to build strength for your daily activities as well as your cardiovascular health.

It is still okay to use what is provided to help you eat balanced, and if you find that you either maintain or lose, you would simply increase quantities.
Many would love to be in your shoes: Thanks again for stopping by. There's a great app for iOs and Android called Fat Secret not affiliated terrible name, but great app. You can scan bar codes of the packages your food comes in, enter fruits and vegetables, and it knows most foods at most restaurants. I've found it really helpful in keeping my protein levels up when I'm working out regularly - while still keeping calories down.
I have been searching for a mid-afternoon snack that would not add tons of calories. Thank you for suggesting one. I also appreciate all of the suggestions and directions you have given here. I know the snack was not the primary focus of the article, but it just happened to be what I needed most right now. Cynthia, controlling snack portions and how often we eat snacks is so key to weight loss and maintenance Glad it was helpful!
Your very welcome, I'm glad that it was helpful. Please let me know if you have any questions. I love your article, but I'm not seeing the Free Food List that you've mentioned several times. I must have overlooked it. Can you tell me where it is, please? In the section just above the blue book explaining how NutriSystem works. You will find links to various resources, including the one you mentioned, read the section and you'll see it.
If you continue to have trouble, let me know. I'm glad you enjoyed the article! Any vegetable juice that does not have a lot of added sugar, corn syrup, etc. In fact you may want to learn to juice or liquefy your own vegetables using a juicer or NutriBullet or Ninja. I have used NutriBullet and am not using the Ninja, I like to have the pulp of the fruit or vegetables with my drink.
Thanks for all the great info! I don't see "desserts" on the diabetes list and would rather not use the calorie packs; can you tell me what makes up a mid-afternoon meal? Yes, you can do the same thing as the mid-morning snack. I just provide a dessert option for those who enjoy their sweets to show that you can still eat them in moderation and lose weight.
I don't eat dairy other than yogurt which I'm including in my meal paln; is there a dairy substitute when it calls for 1 dairy? The only option that comes to mind right now is soy yogurt. I drink almond milk as well Sometimes it is better. I am lactose intolerant, so always look for dairy that is lactose free.
This is easier to do with cheese, especially appreciate the cheeses made by Cabot, almost all if not all are marked lactose free. Kraft shredded Mozzarella is also lactose free. I followed the diet with some protein as suggested. It is really like magic!
