Diet Shakes and Pills Not Enough For Weight Loss

Posted Aug 23 2008 3:21pm
This post is line with my 5 weeks weight loss ER program with real food and Dr. Heidi. Kim and Dr. Heidi have 5 strategies for weight loss.



If you're trying to lose weight and get your health back, pills and shakes are not enough.



How else can we explain why most Americans are so overweight? Including many folks selling health and weight loss supplements.



Pills and shakes have a place. Just not first place.



According to nutrition professor Dr. Heidi Dulay , to lose the weight and get your health back, there are five ordered strategies. From the most natural to the least:



1st. Optimize your daily food plan. Ask: what am I eating and how can I make it better? Get as close as possible to a real food plan (not calorie counting, starving, industrial food or rabbit food).



2nd. Amp up your food plan where necessary. Add super foods e.g. green powders, cod liver and coconut oil, herbs, Pops , etc.



3rd. If symptoms persist after a month of doing 1 and 2 above, or if your doctor prescribes it, add nutraceuticals e.g. isolated Vitamin C, Vitamin D, calcium, CoQ10, L-glutamine, etc.



4th. If symptoms still persist, add pharmaceuticals your doctor recommends. Many do this strategy together with nutraceuticals.



5th. Last resort: surgery. E.g., stomach stapling (Bariatric surgery), etc.
If you had to choose between #5 and #1, would you consider an optimal ER daily food plan first? For four weeks? And THEN decide re #5?
