I tried 30 day nutrisystem, but airlines won't let me fly with food/power drink mixes. I've also incorporated lowering the amount of carbohydrates when eating out during week (don't eat apps or deserts). I was at 260 6 months ago, and found following the above dropping 20 lbs wasn't especially difficult. No more hot breakfasts (eggs, suasage, hot cakes) at the hotels opting for fresh fruit, heart health cereals.
Eliminating Alcohol and Sugar Soft Drinks had me feeling much better, but lacked the weight loss results. Walking in the evenings has again helped in making me feel better, and is ideal form of exercise after 6-8 hours of flying, making connecting flights.
There isn't anything wrong with my thyroid as my company implemented a policy revision for health care coverage to have a full physical/blood tests (mainly looking for nictotine and potential diabetes risks) in order to keep our premiums from rising, and my GP said he didn't see anything out of the norm except for High Bad Cholesterol Levels and Low Good Cholestrol Levels, and elevated Tri levels
So would searching for a different GP be advisable? I can understand why most GP's wouldn't feel comfortable prescribing "amphetamine-like stimulants"
Are there doctors who specialize in this area of medicine that don't require Clinical Weight Loss Center visits during the week?
