So my dad is on roller -coaster diet number 860... literally. As long as I can remember he has yo-yo dieted.
Well now, he is 65, extrememly over weight (probably close to 380 pounds). He has had multiple surgeries for Anuerisms and had a pace maker installed 2 years ago. So being healthy is something I hope that he will finally take seriously.
Anyway, I know that he is "eating Healthier" at least that is what he has told me. In explaining the salad that his wife makes him, I told him to be careful because she is putting A LOT of calories onto the salad. He then told me it is okay, since that is all that he is eating. So me thinking he is eating 3 of these salads a day, I am worried.
But no... apparently he only eats 1 time a day and a huge salad at that. I tried explaining that it isn't healthy, that it will actually cause more damage than good. I know that all he heard was "blah, blah, blah".
I am trying to get him make a life style change not some stupid crash diet that he can only stick to for a few weeks, until he goes totally off the deep end...
Any suggestions on how to best help him understand, that what he is doing is not healthy?
Every accomplishment begins with a decision to try!
