Diabetes Best diet to lose weight

Picking foods that fill you up with fewer calories

By Tracey Neithercott/Recipes by Robyn Webb, MS, LN

There are plenty of reasons why diets fail, but for many people it comes down to this: They’re not satisfied and they’re not full. Most people who drop a size (or three) on a restrictive plan gain it all back once they realize that they do, in fact, enjoy bread. Or that they simply can’t live another day without a bite of chocolate.

Instead of giving up entire food groups, there’s a smarter way to lose weight. And, believe it or not, it involves eating more. According to Barbara Rolls, PhD, professor of nutritional sciences at Pennsylvania State University and author of two books on the subject, including The Volumetrics Eating Plan: Techniques and Recipes for Feeling Full on Fewer Calories, there are two major elements to this concept. The first is satiety: feeling full and satisfied. The second is energy density (more about that later). If you consider both when creating a meal, you can eat more food but take in fewer calories and still lose weight.

Remember, the bottom line on dieting is that the only way to cut pounds is to consume fewer calories than you burn. But that doesn’t mean that restricting your food choices is the best—or only—option. Anyone who has ever eaten, say, a frozen diet dinner understands the feeling of deprivation: Too often, you’re left looking for a snack to fill your still-grumbling stomach and satisfy your original craving. The key to maintaining weight loss is to eat foods that will satisfy you and keep hunger at bay. The reason satiety is so important is that once you control your hunger, you can maintain weight loss over the long term.

I did a pretty good job using...

Weight Watchers. Yes, it is time consuming (go to meetings once/week), but it helped me get rid of 30 lbs and I have another 30 lbs to go.
Portion control and getting the "best" food for you will save you $$.
I am a diabetic, too (type 1), so I understand your concern on food.
Weight Watchers pointed something very interesting out to me...You must eat to "feed your body". This means that someone who is 250 lbs needs more food to feed their body than someone who is 150 lbs.
"Portion Control" that lowers itself as you go down in weight is the best directive
