Description

Weight Loss and Health Benefits for those 50 and Older As we all know, after 50 years of age, and in many cases younger, we tend to slowly add on more and more weight. Many people have just come to accept this as a "natural" process we encounter as we age. I decided that though I fit that profile (weighing in between 170 & 198 lbs since my 40's on a 5'5" frame, and now 64 years of age), I was going to try to come up with some sort of "diet/exercise" program that should actually work for me. Of course, I had tried all the different ones (Low Carb, High Carb, Low Fat, High Fat and on and on) with reasonable success each time, but these diets are not the kind you may maintain as a way of life. Needless to say, I would lose 20 - 30 pounds, but almost immediately, after discontinuing the diet, I put the weight right back on. At 198 lbs, 5'5," and age 64, my blood pressure was constantly over 150/100, Cholesterol over 300, diagnosed with C.O.P.D.(Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease), had testicular cancer at age 33, blind in my right eye, hard of hearing, carpal tunnel in both wrists (surgery on one), kidney stone (had to have surgery of course, couldn't just "pass it"), extreme allergic reactions to pork/beef, fabreeze and lord knows what else. I have to carry an EpiPen(R) (epinephrine) with me at all times and did I mention I was short. Obviously if I'm able to do this "diet/exercise program"most of you can. With my program, I lost 70 lbs total, lowered my BP to 125/75 (Dr. took me off 40 mg of Lisinopril a day after just 4 months on the diet), lowered my cholesterol to 210, and went from a size 36" waist to a 30." I'm now off all COPD medicines and inhalers (again by Dr. orders) and able to walk reasonably effortlessly up and down stairs again. I have not had any allergic reactions as of yet either.show more
