Patient discussion about maintenance

Q. I have lupus and diabetes. Can I get some tips for weight maintenance? Is it true that foods now these days have hormones and other preservatives in it that can make you fatter? Will eating organic food prevent weight gain (as long as you eat right and in decent portions). Has anyone lost weight faster while eating organic food..

A. Organic does mean that hormones and chemicals were not used but it may not guarantee you will loose weight. The number of calories and the types of foods you eat still affect weight loss and gain. The reason it may take a long time to loose that weight is that science is proving now that toxins from air, water and food become trapped inside of your fat cells, as a natural protection your body provides from them. Until you rid your body of the toxins you have stored up, your body will stubbornly hold onto the fat.

Q. Has anyone had any positive weight loss or maintenance from drinking milk?

A. Any "diet" which includes just 1 food is not healthy. Milk is great as part of a balanced diet, but not a diet fit for adults on its own. There can only be disadvantages in the long run of doing this.
