My husband has been a yo yo dieter all his life. He is 77 yrs. old and needs to lose 20 lbs. We eat real foods including some dairy, stay away from sugar and gluten. I don’t know what I can do to help him lose the weight. He is a big eater with protein but eats allot of veggies for dinner too. He has a sweet tooth but I make some deserts out of almond or coconut flours. Can anyone tell me what I should do to help him lose the weight for good. He also has no will power if it’s there he will eat it till it’s gone! So I try not to have anything bad around.
If you keep unhealthy foods on your counter, you are more likely to have an unplanned snack. This is also linked to increased weight and obesity. It’s better to keep healthy foods, like fruits, visible.
I love almond milk (original) so I make my smoothies every morning always with a banana (a must have for me) and any fruit or vegetable I feel to add (paleontology). I would have 8 ounces and freeze the rest of smoothie for a late evening snack. My breakfast keeps me satisfied not stuffed. For dinner I would have roasted Chicken or pork or beef a side of vegetables sauteed with garlic and fresh minced herbs. I am becoming a fan of cauliflower rice; I prepare it in various ways so I won’t get tired of it.
You can either purchase a journal or download a food journal app. Try to track as many days as you can. Again, you’re more likely to stay on track and stick with your meal plan the more often you record your foods.

Eat 1,500 milligrams or less of sodium per day to keep blood pressure low. Your first step is keeping the saltshaker off the table. “Instead, use herbs and spices or a salt-substitute such as Mrs. Dash,” suggests Kelly.
