Posted March 08, 2019 14:18:48The loss of weight has been a nightmare for many.
Linda Lee, 47, of Fort Worth, Texas, has been going to the gym three times a week to lose weight for a year.
But she says the number one problem with losing weight is the dietitians.
“They tell you it’s the calories, not the diet,” Lee told News24.
“And I just think they should stop telling me that because the calorie counts aren’t that accurate.”
Lee lost her weight for 10 days last September.
She is now on a weight loss plan of her own.
Lee, who has been using the word “fat down” to describe her weight loss, says she started with a low-calorie diet and lost 10 pounds in two weeks.
Her plan is to eat only 100 grams of fat a day and keep the calories low.
After her first month of weight loss and diet, Lee says she felt like a new person, even though her weight was still there.
It took Lee five weeks to get back to her old self.
I thought, wow, I’m actually starting to look like the person I used to be,” Lee said.
For Lee, who said she had been on a “low-cal” diet for several years, her weight-loss plan has paid off.
She’s on her way to losing more than 30 pounds.”
I think the biggest thing is the calorie count, not just the diet.
I was doing the diet all wrong and I thought I was losing weight, and that’s just not the case,” Lee added.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, about one in seven people has a family history of obesity, a condition where people are overweight or obese and are at a high risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
In Texas, the average person loses about 6.6 pounds a year through the years.
Linda’s weight-gain plan includes a 100-cal diet, 500-cal juice and a low carb snack bar.
Lee hopes her weight is gone in two years.”
We’ve got so much work to do.
I just want to be able to take care of myself and go to the doctor and get tested,” Lee explained.
