my drs. are concerned that my binge eating will continue after surgery. what can i do

A: One of the hardest post-op concepts to get across to those who are pre-opis that food just doesn''t matter as much as it once did -- it''s simply nota priority. I don''t know why that is, but this also applies to all thosenice people in white coats who profess to want to "help" theobese by giving them 600-calorie-a-day diets, prescriptions for Xenical,and vicious obesophobia masquerading as "concern for your health,dear". You''d think they''d know...


Did I really try everything? what am I doing? Terrified

A: I would be more concerned about you if you were not a little scared :-) WLS is a life-altering step which should not be taken lightly, nor withoutdoing adequate research on the subject. You, your parents, and yourphysician(s) are the only ones who know your history of weight gains andlosses...and you are truly the only one who knows how obesity has effectedyou emotionally and psychologically over the years. I think that all of uscan say that we have been successful at losing weight....many, many times. However, the problem has been that we have been unable to maintain...

what are some ways to increase the fitness level of children?

A: If you have the money, buy them a Nintendo Wii. I have one and it is a lot of fun. The Wii Sports game that comes with the system is a very good way to exercise. I have have so much fun playing the boxing in particular as it is the most vigorous and leaves my shirt soaked after playing for an hour. I also enjoy Wii Fit and EA Active as they are other great additions to the Wii exercise experience. However, with the Wii, you must be careful as to which games you purchase for it. While there are many great games that...


Any advice for someone who just got diagnosed with type 2 diabetes?

A: do what the doctors tell you. Frosted flakes are not worth going blind and losing your legs. Yes I think there are. Some good advice so far...I''ll just add to cut out the trans fat. Yup those are out now. Try going on a strict vegetarian diet. Recent research shows the vegan diet will reverse type II diabetes. See http://www.vegetarianorganiclife.com/ and http://www.newstarget.com/019785.html I also believe the vegan diet will substantially help prevent the secondary complications of type-1 diabetes. I would avoid them. Here''s your advice: For type I and type II diabetics (and those who are overweight and could...

I would to know what the following words mean?

A: I have no idea about the margin stuff, but good nutrition could reverse this diabetic thing. Give your child blueberries to eat, and sip vinegar water, research diabetic for home remedies and get your child well fast. Contact the doctor. I wouldn''t trust anyone but a doctor when it comes to my 3 year old. Ask your doctor or the diabetic nurse. In response to the previous answer - there is NO reversal for diabetese. There are two types = Type 1 which is normally diagnosed in children. The...
