I was going to put this in my usual update thread but I think putting this in a different thread is more open, as I've been disturbed by my endocrinologist report since it came through the post. We discussed my weight and the over snacking he seems to believe I'm doing or eating too much as I believe. I have to constantly have small meals every three hours. He was upset with me because i had gained a little weight and though I know I have to keep weight off and get it down to about another 8 kilos down, just over a stone! He was literally warning me, I had to get rid of the extra weight but insisted I lose more. My endocrinologist was describing to me how more visceral fat around my organs was not beneficial to me. I knew this beforehand but never noticed my midsection had grown half an inch. How important is visceral fat to RH or other conditions similar to diabetes? How important is it to be as slim as possible as a RH er? Do you need to be as near optimum weight as possible to feel better? Will all my good work go to the devil because I'm not as slim as I should be? I'm already eating next to nothing, can't fast, because I'm working more than full time in my job. I have always believed that my excess insulin was the culprit for all my weight gain and doing very low carb was the answer to losing most of the weight that has gone! (5 stone and 6 inches around the waist). I don't feel any worse off for the weight gain and am as clear minded as I've been since diagnosis. I know he's right, but how frustrating can this condition be? I would consider options. I need to lose more weight, but what more can I do?
