This Sparked Me!

When you movement is limited, you really don't need 1200 calories. It is like gassing your car every day but you don't drive. I tried increasing my calories above 1200 did not work. I am eating healthy & taking my Vemma vitamins. Laid off all bread and immediately dropped 5 pounds.

    When I hit the wall, and can't keep losing. I regroup. I eat smaller meals and eat more times a day. It works, good luck. emoticon

    I too have discovered that i don't need 1200 calories when I am not very active for health reasons. At these times I try to eat the most nutrient dense food on hand- mostly fruit, veggies, and beans. Although I am not diabetic, I cut down on the bread and most grains when I cannot exercise as both seem to make me gain weight. Of course I realize that diabetics can eat bread, but according to Dr. Neal Barnard, in his Nutritional Approach to Diabetes, rye or pumpernickel bread is a better choice as they have lower glycemic indexes than wheat bread. When I have problems with my back or legs, I too exercise in bed, in a chair, and of course I continue with my yoga class to keep flexible.

    Why do you "need" bread bcause you are diabetic? If it's fiber,use flax seed or veggies with fiber. Other than fiber,what good does bread do for you? Hope it's 100% ww bread but check in ingred. lots of sugar and "other" stuff. emoticon emoticon

    I am diabetic so I have to have bread, so I had to up my exercise. I am walking more and I do Aerobics and strength training now. To begin with I was just exercising on my bed and in a chair, that was a good way to start.
