Betty asks…

I am considering a lap band system for weight loss. Is this the safest way to reduce at least 50 lbs?

I am a 40+ year old male. My weight is 225 lbs. Height 5’6″. What do you think is the best way to reduce weight and inches off my waist?

Power Health Tips answers:

You don’t need surgery to lose 50 lbs. I lost 50 lbs. In about 4-5 months. I bicycled 5 miles a day, evry day. I took the high glycemic foods from my diet. I started supplementing with chromium picolinate to stabilize my blood sugar. You need to get control of your insulin release. Insulin causes you to store bodyfat. You need to eliminate white foods from your diet. Find a whole grain bread, even better sara lee makes an oat bread that is excellent. You need to eat breakfast within an hour of waking. No carbs after 2 PM. EAt 5-6 small meals a day to avoid metabolism spikes. You want to maintain a constant burn. If I gave you a room to keep a constant temp, you would throw logs in the fireplace on threee times a day, right? This is the science of the multi-mini-meal lifestyle. Use it in conjunction with low glycemic index foods. Find a copy of Ted Spiker’s and David Zincenko’s Abs Diet. Get a subscription to Men’s Health. That’s how I got started. I was 245, dieted to 185, and now I’ve muscled back up to 215. BUT, at 215 I still have the 33-inch waist I had at 185. It can be done without surgery. Good luck……if you have any questions, e-mail me. Here’s a sample breakfast:

Breakfast:
I take a small saucepan (2 cups?) and put about an inch of water in it. Sprinkle in a couple of ounces of Quaker quick pearled barley (like you’d use in beef barley stew). The barley takes about 5 minutes to boil. When it begins to boil, add a generous amount of ground cinnamon. The barley will need to boil for another 5 minutes to be tender. While it’s boiling, slice some dehydrated apple, crush a few walnuts…….with about 3 minutes left on the barley add the slow-cook type oatmeal (not the one-minute stuff, it’s too “processed”). With the oatmeal added, lower burner to simmer, cook and stir for a couple more minutes adding the apples and walnuts. The barley is an insulin buffer and will ward off insulin spikes during the day. (Tip: Omit the barley on days you lift because you’ll want a post workout insulin spike). Barley also lowers bad cholesterol…even better than the highly touted oatmeal. The cinnamon is a natural thermogenic (fat-burner). And the walnuts have mono-unsaturated fats to help destroy belly fat.
