I've been reading about how some have lost their appetites for various reasons, and lost weight. Well, due to stress, stomach problems & meds, I've lost my appetite and GAINED quite a bit of sudden weight! By nighttime, I realize I have to eat something, and its usually just to fill up! I don't eat junk food, but have just lost my appetite for many foods, and get sick thinking about prepping the food! Anyone know if there are any companies that deliver organic/healthy prepared food, in the right portions to lose/control weight? I literally feel like gagging when I think about preparing breakfast, lunch or most foods, but would eat something healthy, prepared. I know that sounds weird, but something is causing this aversion! I hesitate eating food from the typical "Diet" companies (J.Craig, Nutrisystem, etc.) because of preservatives, additives, chemicals, etc. I want to eat REAL food, but need help to start such a regime while I'm working a 70 hr. work week! Just don't have the time right now to spend on prep, cooking, cleaning, and have got to restart some healthy habits now! Once I've started, I can get ideas on what to buy, how to combine & quickly prepare healthy meals, but I really need a boost to start! I've had many stomach problems, and the lack of nutrition has negatively affected both mental & physical health. I really want to avoid a Bipolar I depression, because the weight is not good for my body OR mind! Feel like I don't even know how to shop for food anymore! Any suggestions for a coach or recipes or anything will be appreciated! Thanks, Jillian :)
I don't know of any delivery programs except the ones you mentioned, but my friend has recommended to me a book by Bob Green, The Best Life Diet. It doesn't rush you into low cal meals or make you feel starved and fatigued. She bought the book through Amazon and they sell for $3.98 to $18.98. There is also a website for this diet-- thebestlife.com--that offers support. I haven't tried it yet, but she is sure it's the best. I'm not going to start until after the holidays.
I'm very sorry about your stress, long working hours and poor health. All those medications seem to be prescribed for good reasons.
I wish you luck and good health!
Hello there Jillian. 4 pm, (Eastern Time) Your question was in my mailbox because we're friends. just wanted to wish you a happy, enjoyable Thanksgiving Day. I really don't have anything to suggest per say. Kind of sad that you become nauseated thinking about cooking up a meal. I have a nephew, hes a cook not a chef, in a restaurant. Been doing it for about 10 years. I'll be talking to him later on this coming week. I'll mention what you were asking about, you know, pick his brain. Ha! Take care, and to anyone who might be able to read this, have a wonderfull Thanksgiving.
Jillian, would the weight watchers prepared meals, or the lean cuisine ones that you get in the frozen foods section of the supermarket not help with the dinner time part of your meals, since you can't stomach looking at the food when preparing it? I know that they are not perfectly balanced (i.e. organic) foods, but myself and the girls here found that the calories are right, plus they really do fill you up. Just a thought, since you said that it's evening when the munchies hit you... and we've found that the food is really tasty and appealing into the bargain. It's just a handy thing to keep in the freezer too, because the alternative is that you'll hit the junk food if there's nothing else to eat. Sorry that this is the best suggestion that I can come up with... this is what we do, plus keep the fridge stocked up with yogurts as well.
Thanks to all. Yes, slattery, I'm off to compare programs now, even if not for long term... just something to get me going until I have time to set up and do it right. Maybe it won't hurt to try a known diet for now, and slowly incorporate the foods I might start to like again. Its so tough when food doesn't taste good. I think the excess weight got me very depressed, so I'm trying to get motivated & going. Thx! Jillian :)
