As diabetics, we are always looking for ways to lose weight, aren’t we? I have finally found the answer for me, which is from the book Bright Line Eating: The Science of Living Happy, Thin & Free, by Susan Peirce Thompson, Ph.D. It’s fairly new (March of 2017). Her doctorate is in Brain & Cognitive Science, and she, like me and many others, had to find a way to get past the brain’s addiction to food. Her plan does just that. The “bright Lines” are the lines you just do not cross, which are: (1) No flour, no sugar (not even sweeteners—you’ve got to delete all sweet tastes); (2) Only 3 meals per day with no snacking; (3) Amount (you weigh your food to make sure). You can get the book at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, or wherever books are sold. I have lost slowly (1-1/2 lbs a week) but steadily, and I figure it will take me a year to reach my 80-lb. loss goal.
Dr. Thompson recommends these books by T. Colin Campbell, Ph.D.: Whole: Rethinking the Science of Nutrition; The China Study Solution; and The Low-Carb Fraud (a small [75-page] book you might want to get first). For all those of you who have “tried everything” (as I did) and NOTHING worked, you might want to read these books and get a whole new look at some new ideas about nutrition and the way we are eating.
