Default General advice please

Hi all,
have been reading the post for some time, but this is my first.
I am a 60 year old male, who has lived alone 4 years since divorce.
I was advised to loose some weight because of a knee problem,
I work in a hospital, and asked for advice on which diet to follow,
and was told it would be better to change my eating and life style habits,
rather that use a diet plan and then most likely
put it back on when going back to my old ways.

I have reduced the portion size and gone to lower fat food, no sugar, no
puddings, threw away the frying pan, now grill.
and six months later I have gone from nearly 17 stone at 5'7" to 14 1/4,
and feel much better, cycle most of the time.

in general is olive oil highly fattening?
I have replaced my normal snack type treats with mixed nuts and sultanas,
are there ok within reason?

thanks for any feed back.
Mick.

Any type of oil is fattening! One thing for sure is that a small amount of
olive oil is good to have on a daily basis. Also, there are some other good
oils as well. Corn oil, and canola oil are other good oils that you can
have.

It is not good to cook or fry with olive oil. For cooking, you can use corn
oil, or canola oil as well.

You should not exceed about 60 to 100 grams of total fat per day. This is
the complete day of eating all combined.

You can have something fried, but very limited, and not have adverse
effects. Naturally, the less fried foods you have, the better off you are.
Eat only boiled, or grilled, or baked foods. Take no butter or added fats
with anything you eat, if at all possible. This will help reduce your
weight. You can then use only a little bit of olive oil, or some other type
of healthy oil in your salads, or whatever else foods you want.

If you eat a lot of fish, you will get Omega 3 fats. This is very good for
raising the HDL in the blood. Eat mainly light meats, such as chicken,
turkey, or very lean ham, or very lean veal. Once a week it is good to have
a piece of red meat to get the iron. A piece of liver is also a very good
thing to have about once every week to once every two weeks.

The main foods should be salads, fruits, beans, and various grains. Take
care to not have more than about 4 to 6 ounces of meat at any one meal.

Wait about 2 to 3 hours after eating, and then do an aerobic exercise
program. Taking exercise classes for kick boxing, tiebow, or karate will
also help to make you loose weight. These workouts will help you to build up
muscle, and to have your carteo system back in to shape. You do not have to
do the exercises to the extent that they will cause harm. They should be
done with an acceptable moderation for what you can take. Exercise will also
increase the HDL factor in the blood, and lower your body fat, which will
help reduce the risk of a carteo event. This also lowers the risk of
diabetes.

When you are at work, try to walk as often as possible. Try to do things
where you have to move around to get things done right. If you have a sore
knee, see if there is a way to do as much as possible without disturbing the
knee.

I had a big weight problem about 4 years ago. I made up my mind, and lost
about 60 lbs. I am following a very strict diet, and doing full workouts
just about every day. There are some days, where I do the workouts twice.
When people see me, they cannot believe the change.

The whole thing is common sense, and following the proper life style
routine.
