Re: Kidney maintenance


Losing weight is easy, if you don't follow any of the diets currently out there. The body needs a certain amount of nutrients daily, all within a specific calorie amount.

Most women should limit consumption to between thirteen hundred and eighteen hundred calories. Petite women should limit to between eleven hundred and fourteen hundred. If someone is very active, they should add no more than five hundred calories to their diet, most folk could manage with an extra three. Avoiding processed foods, balancing carbs with proteins and eating whatever you want - within those calorie limits, will cause the body to lose weight slowly and safely. The first thing to happen when eating correctly, is muscles begin to grow..

I have tried every diet out there, and every single one has failed - I am now eating what my grandparents grew up eating, and my weight is reducing, my muscles are increasing, my appetite is level, with no greed evident, and I eat whatever natural foods we can find. We eat much less meat, and a lot more carbohydrate foods and feel great. Had I not have had the kidney stones, I would never have stumbled upon this ridiculously simple truth.

If you are unsure of calorie amounts, study a calorie counter, so you know. Most people nowadays in modern society eat twice as much as they should, often four of five times too much. Reduce to the levels suggested here, and elsewhere, you will get fit, lose weight and slow down the ageing effects on your body.. I have a long way to go, but I will get there.

Re: Kidney maintenance


[sign in to see URL] is the only thing I can think of that has truly changed in my [sign in to see URL] not using any artificial sweetener. As I [sign in to see URL] is in the green tea that I like, but that's the only place I get it.

I have slowed down on eating breads and [sign in to see URL] in mind I said slowed [sign in to see URL] stopped! LOL When I lost weight on the Paleo diet, my stomach shrank enough that I can not eat as much as I had been. That has helped, as well.

We'll eventually go back on the Paleo (it was not the extreme [sign in to see URL] did eat dairy, and DH ate bread once in a while). In the meantime, we'll keep doing what we're doing and, and hopefully I'll keep getting good lab results!!

Re: Kidney maintenance


I try to keep my diet as natural as possible. I don't eat white breads or sweets unless it's a special occasion. (*Mom going out of her way to make me an angel food cake for my Bday is one special occasion.)...but anything with sugar seems way to sweet for me.
If I get a 'craving' for something it would be super dark chocolate. Almost [sign in to see URL] love that stuff. Usually I go with [sign in to see URL] even that is very little.
I try to fill my plate with vegetables and fruit first. Then some kind of lean meat and then a small helping of a starch, whole grain preferably. I've never counted but on a normal day, I consume between 1200 and 1300 calories. I'm 5 ft. 10in. and very large boned. Can't even wear a woman's size watch! emoticon
Now if I could get my lungs to cooperate, I could exercise more, I know I'd lose faster then. emoticon

Re: Kidney maintenance


A great friend of mine is a somewhat famous nutritionist, who knows a great deal about health and nutrition and exercise, told me, whilst laughing happily, that there is an amazing myth the entire world believes - that exercise is the way to lose weight. He then went on to tell me that to lose one pound of weight, someone would have to exercise for hours, to consume the amount of calories that are in one pound of fat. The myth is believed so much because exercise makes you sweat, which will reduce the amount of free liquid in the tissue - making a person seem thinner. So don't worry, Queeny, exercise does not really work, and weight loss is all about choices.

Obesity is epidemic because of the complete lies propagated by various commercial and pharmaceutical interests.

unfortunately, the biggest lie around is the healthiness of whole grain anything - I hate to burst health and fitness bubbles, but....


Whole grains tend to have parts within them, that we should not consume - white bread exists for a reason, and that is not a modern idea, White rice is the staple for millions of people, not the brown rice the west say is eaten in Asia - it really isn't.

I don't usually say anything about the whole grain myth, because it is so universally believed - but if whole grains were so good, why do people eating them have such health problems - people eating what is believed to be the healthy option diets are twice as likely to have serious medical issues before they are fifty. This is not me spouting out numbers to make a point, this is data from serious research, that has every person on the research team happily eating white rice and white bread.

This does not mean go out and buy wonderbread - but certainly go to a good bakery and buy the organic or sworn natural breads, made with pure flour, white flour. The main health problems associated with white breads come the the cheap enriched flours - anything enriched has been ruined, and should be avoided. I could go on for a long long time, writing about the problems with added vitamins and minerals to anything from water to grain, to meat. There are not sufficient natural vitamins and supplemental minerals around to provide all the manufacturers with natural versions, so they ALL buy up chemically created versions, that have boundless supplies. Problem is, the synthetic versions are not in anyway real, and cannot be used by the body. All of them, at best, will be excreted in urine or stool, and at worst, will do untold damage to the tissue that tries to assimilate it.

Wading through the mire of nutrition in the US, should be stressing me out, but the new direction of my eating habits has removed the stress from my life - not only am I reducing fat and increasing muscle mass, I am unbelievably calm about everything, nothing at all is stressful, and believe me, this last week has provided plenty of reasons for my past self to have ranting and screaming. I personally like the way my body is responding, I am really enjoying the food groups that I had shunned for ten years, and feel great eating quantities of food that do not fill me up.

An example - quite unbelievably Frog is finding her skin clearer, scars from ancient damage are vanishing, her teeth, that paleo made uncomfortable, are getting much better, and lady problems caused by child abuse are starting to go away - twenty years after the event. This came about not because she read a book and started to follow a 'healthy' diet - by common belief, and health books, she found the worst possible diet for health, but she is getting healthier, gaining muscle mass, losing fat, having long term joint problems go away, and having the emotional damage of her childhood recede into the distance, taking with it the nightmares and horrors that I have had to hold her through for the last decade and more.

The change in my beautiful Froggy is wonderful, utterly wonderful. The complete horror of her childhood have kept her from having a wonderful life - she has been happy since being with me, but the memories have stressed her out for years - now she is happy. All the time, and can actually talk about the horrors that used to tie her up. All of this came to be, within a very short space of time, eating foods regarded by many, as unhealthy.

This in itself, prompted me to change the direction of my research, to abandon the ideas followed by others in my field, and look not at the accepted healthy normal, but look at the systems of the body. Fortunately, I have studied human biology, and pathology so that change of direction did not throw me into unknown territory. Taking human being down to component parts, I could examine the processes and functions of the systems that provide life. I could work out why some nutrients were good, and others very bad, and the results surprised me. I am not yet ready to suggest everyone throw away all the common healthy food knowledge, it may well come to that, but at present, we are, as usual, living the change, and so far, really enjoying the surprising improvements in life, mind and body.

Re: Kidney maintenance


I'm so very happy that you found ways that work for you. But especially something that has helped Froggy so very much... emoticon

I actually prefer whole grains, not because they are supposed to be healthy for you, but because I can't stand "bubble bread" and the [sign in to see URL] like something I have to chew. With some sustenance in it. I mean when I make my oatmeal in the [sign in to see URL] add craisens... (cranberry/raisins) and walnuts to my bowl.
I guess I just like having to chew something! emoticon

Re: Kidney maintenance


One month has passed, kidney problem free - the herbs I am taking are working fine - I can feel the occasional twinge as something else gets flushed from the organs. I feel great, am sleeping well, eating more satisfyingly and enjoying life.

The experiment we are conducting on foods is going well - things are surprising us daily, and others are being confirmed.

We will continue for another two months before we have any conclusions. Hopefully I will continue to lose weight.
