Hello.
I am from Brisbane, new to the Forums.
I am 50 yrs old, and have Plantar Faschitis, and ligament problems in ankle always swells.
I am trying to eat healthy food but not sure what to eat as i am not a lover of Salad at night for dinner.
Go out for a walk with my dog only can walk for 20 mins until pain comes back in foot.
Hope to get some ideas from you guys .
Have had some protein powder shakes but still hungry and it says you cannot eat bread or crispbreads while on it totally confused.
Have a nice day thanks :D

Hi Springrainbow,

maybe I can shed some light as to why your not allowed to eat bread whilst on a protein shake diet.

the principle part of the protein diet is so that its very low carb, the theory being that if you eat less carbs, then your body will start to eat the fat rather then the carbs, meaning you lose weight. It is very confusing, I know. Are you on a program like Tony Ferguson, or are you just trying the shakes to see how they go?

And yes...salad for dinner can leave you feeling quite empty in the stomach. I find it helps with the hunger if you eat heaps of lettuce, more then you originally put on your plate, because its mostly just water!

Hope this helps a little. I know how difficult it can be to lose weight when you have health issues. My mother is trying to lose weight, but she has osteo-arthritus and the doctor has told her she shouldn't walk more then 100 metres or up stairs at all.

Even if you just walk the 20 minutes or even just every 15 minutes, and even if its only every couple of days, its still worth it. every little bit helps.

Good luck on your journey!

Jen

Thank you Jenn89, and also Shalimar.
I appreciate the encouragement from you both. Jenn i am
taking a product called Isowhey Complete,not sure if you are familair.
with this powder, but apparently it has a 4 week intense meal replacement diary,
which i personally find is quite restrictive.
I will probally use the tub to finish it 2 soops each in 200ml of milk,rice milk, soy or water,
twice a day for lunch,dinner or brekkie.
I actually think i would just be better off using these lovely receipes on this board here,
Powder's do not keep me craving for carbs.Springrainbow :)

haha i know! I was doing tony Ferguson, and while I've found that that is quite good for a meal replacement plan when it came to foods you can eat (you had a meal, 2 x fruit, and as much veg as you want) THAT was too much for me. Might I suggest though, especially if you've already forked out a bit of cash for the diet your on now, that you try to stick to it for a week or so if you havent already, and see how it goes.

And we've all been through the cravings hun, just work through it. it'll get better in a few days, and pretty soon you wont even have them anymore (no guarantee :p)

Good Luck on your Journey Sweet and Welcome.

I have also tried shakes and found the smae sort of problems. Im on a VERY tight budget so I just have lots of veggies with a small portion of meat for dinner ( I dont like salads much myself) or an Omlette with veggies or ham and tomato. Last night I just have a wholemeal bread roll with yummy stuff on it. Its all about what keeps you satisfied and does blow your cals.

I would also check out http://www.calorieking.com.au Its a great site with LOOOTS of things to read.
