So yesterday I headed off to the Dietician.
I guess I wasn’t really expecting too much, cause after all I must be the only fat chick who thinks she already knows everything there is to know about healthy eating and loosing weight! LOL! I mean I’ve tried all the diets so I know it all. Also she was recommended by Dr Sh%t for Brains and well that left me with some doubts about how good she might be. But I was more than pleasantly surprised. She was great. She spent over an hour with me in total and started by explaining to be what my blood test results mean and how my body had likely come to be in this state along with all the chemistry of how it’s supposed to work.
First off she said that my blood test results showed definitely have something called Metabolic Syndrome and strongly suggest I do have PCOS, but she was very quick to say we can mange this with diet and it shouldn’t be a problem. Then she proceeded to turn everything I thought I knew about healthy eating on it’s head, it turns out I probably put my body in this state about eight years ago when I gave up eating fat! She said I don’t eat enough protein or fats and as a results to fill myself up I eat too much starch. She has given me no quantity guidelines and said to simply eat until I’m full. I explained I was made without an ‘Off Switch’ and she said that this too will rectify once my hormones are back in balance. She specified that my new eating plan designed to reduce the symptoms of PCOS and improve my egg quality. She said I shouldn’t expect to loose much, if any weight in the next three months, but we will get my body working properly and then she says the weight should come off quite easily. I’ll believe that when I see it!
So today is day 1 and so far I’ve not been hungry – which is always my worst nightmare, I really am a menace when I’m hungry. While I don’t mind not loosing any more weight for now (so long as I am in peak condition for baby making), I really just hope I don’t put any weight on. I’ll keep you posted on my progress.
