If this is a duplicate, please accept my apologies.

I weigh 184 and am 5'7". I need to lose twenty pounds and I cannot exercise
because I'm in a wheelchair.

What is your daily calorie intake and what do you eat to keep your taste
buds interested when you've cut back on food or calories?

I eat All Bran with skim milk in the AM and at least two apples a day. I
drink four or five glasses of water a day, some decaf tea and two Metamucil
cocktails. I also take several B-Complex vitamins. I ran into some 90
calorie "garden burgers" and 230 frozen dinners. I hardly ever use salt.
Sometime I have half a sub from Subway. A dietician said that is OK.

I stopped chocolate and ice cream months ago. Fat free pudding and fruit
are my dessert, if I have any.

Do you eat soy burgers or other soy products? I can make them taste good,
if I add a little low-cal salsa or other spicy stuff.

Ideas welcome. Thanks

My baseline metabolic rate is around 2200 (although I suspect it's
gone down a bit, as I've lost weight). Right now, I'm taking in
anywhere from 1000-1500 calories a day. Most days I hit 1200 pretty
consistently, but no diet is without falter.

I'm a resident undergraduate student, so my choices are unfortunately
somewhat limited, but on a average weekday:

Breakfast (~300 cal)
Generally, nothing. But if I do eat something, it's a bagel with
cream cheese & black coffee

Lunch (~500 cal)
A wrap or sandwich (anything from buffalo chicken to turkey club)
A bag of chips (generally try to stick to something in the 200 cal
range)

Occasionally, I'll opt for a 6" sub instead (turkey+green peppers).

Dinner (~600 cal)
This is my grabbag meal. I generally end up with some kind of meat/
veggie mix from an all-you-care-to-eat facility, but sometimes I opt
for two slices of pizza or something instead.

Snack (80 cal)
I chow down on a Dannon Light & Fit Yogurt. They're the best I've
found, to date. Sometimes I stir in a little granola.

drink four or five glasses of water *a day, some decaf tea and two Metamucil

Hi there,

First off I wouldn't eliminate exercise altogether just because you're
in a wheel chair.

I assume you can use your arms??

If so you can easily do bicep curls, shoulder presses and an
assortment of other exercises while sitting in your wheel chair. Just
by doing some of these exercises will help you burn some extra
calories and ultimately help you lose some weight as well as increase
your lean muscle which will help increase your metabolism.

Everyone's daily caloric intake is different. However it seems that
you are on the right track in terms of eating healthy foods.

What you can do if you have a craving is to put some dark chocolate in
the freezer and when one of the cravings hit you, suck on the piece of
chocolate as if it were hard candy. This will allow you to enjoy the
chocolate for a longer period of time without indulging.

Remember everything in moderation should be key, it seems like you
have a ton of discipline at this point so don't stop and keep going!

havent tried the soy burgers, but I am a big fam of veggie and turkey
burgers...salsa's always a nice treat!

Hope that helps.

The arms don't work either. They'll move, just as the legs will, but it's
fatiguing because of the disease.

work.

Does anyone have an opinion about the reliability of this websites:

I would advise you to learn to cook. And stop polluting your body with
industrial food and stuff made in a laboratory. Are your B-Complex
vitamins made from coal? If you visited the place where they produce
and saw the making from A to Z, I'm sure you would say "no thank you!"
if offered to try the pill. Extremely disturbing.

I have seizures and I use a machine at night so I don't stop breathing.

Sounds like you have one of the more severe cases. I'm sorry to hear
that. Even with CPAP, the broken nights are going to exacerbate the
other problems.

Is there anyone who could cook batches of stuff for you that could then
be frozen in single portion lots? A nice variety of low fat,
calorie-counted home cooked meals that you could simply defrost and zap,
followed by fresh fruit, home-made pure fruit smoothie frozen lollies
and the like would probably be more to your taste, more filling, and a
lot better for you than factory processed foods. Frozen low fat yoghurt
deserts, fresh ones, and occasional Skinny Cow treats are permited as
well, just for fun.

If you could get together with a friend and provide recipe and
ingredients and swap those and advice for muscle power, you could both
end up with a freezer full of delicious meals and soups that would fill
you up and not bloat you with excess salt (Subway are particularly bad
for that), flood you with chemicals and what Jamie Oliver calls
'bollock-burgers' (made with 'mechanically recovered meat', or animal
sludge that is mostly fat), or are bulked out with useless stuff like
guar gum.

The Weight Watchers recipe books are full of excellent recipes that
work, and many are very good for freezing. I recently helped a friend
make a vast batch of several different soups like this for a her father
in law, and elderly gent dying of non-Hodgkinson's Lymphoma, who needed
some decent nutriton that was easy to prepare, tempting when he was
exhausted, and could be frozen in single portions that were very zappable.

I tend to batch cook soups, and some stews and casseroles. I also
freeze the 'spare' portions from 4 person recipes as there are only
three of us. It gives us a chance for a decent home cooked meal on
those days that the fibromyalgia takes over and I'm incapable of
anything remotely related to cooking.

You should have AT LEAST 6 glasses (eight ounces each) of water per day.
Check out the government food pyramid for calories requirements and
nutritional requirements. They list recommendations for losing as well as
maintaining weight. If this is too confusing, joint Weight Watchers and
follow their points system.

There's a huge variety of fruits and vegetables available and these should
be your mainstay. If you want to avoid sodium, use fresh or frozen ones or
read the labels very carefully to find the no sodium added kind.

Why did you include the eating disorders group in the list?

I weigh 184 and am 5'7". *I need to lose twenty pounds and


Note that insurance tables tend to run 10 pounds to light. If you
used insurance tables to set your goal then you actually need to
lose ten not twenty. Just how did you select your goal? It
doesn't seem far enough from a practical goal that you'd include
the eating disorder group.

I cannot exercise because I'm in a wheelchair.


Exercise is relative to one's current fitness level. Don't get duped
by the falacy that it has to be in the gym to count as exercise.
Any level of movement that stretches your current level of fitness
is exercise no matter that level of fitness. This could be from best
efforts to move your limbs around to control your power chair with
your hands instead of your tongue all the way through doing a 10K
run because you're accustomed to doing 5K runs. What you can
do is what you can do and it counts in your own context.

What is your daily calorie intake and what do you eat to keep your taste
buds interested when you've cut back on food or calories?


What I do to keep my tastes interested is low carb not low fat.
You did include a low carb support group in your posting after all.
Not only does low carb work as well as low fat, I think the foods
taste better and they are just as filling even if they aren't as
bulky.
