Here's an article in the NYTIMES today which relates to yesterday's Sunday Science. The title says it all:
“To Lose Weight, Eating Less is Far More Important Than Exercising More.”
When I first lost weight in 2009, I could no do exercise so had to strictly use the WeightWatcher's point system. I also knew I could not use the “extra” points allowed each week as, if I did, weight loss stopped.
I had to eat less or else I would see no loss.
It is what many seniors face if their movement is restricted. But, I realized after months of rather strict restrictions, if I made the food I could eat varied, colorful, and plentiful where possible (salads), I didn't crave the extras.
In some ways, less food was easier than today where I routinely have 10+K step days along with many more choices of within the extra points.
