You are likely to have trouble staying the course, by which I mean, keeping your weight down. You probably did just fine when losing weight by following the suggestions on these pages. But a lifetime is a long time. How to keep from reverting to those habits which caused you to get fat in the first place? How? How? First remember that you can’t continue doing the same thing and expect a different result. None can.
Second remember that when you were losing weight you could not eat until your bloodsugar was 110 or lower. Continuing to follow this rule may be all you need. Separate mind hunger from body hunger. If your bloodsugar is 110 or more, you body is not hungry. If the hunger pains become too great, eat a bit of cabbage or some non-calorie such to give your mind something to chew on.
Third remember that booze of any kind, whether beer, wine, hard stuff, or saki makes most of us fat. For several reasons: it weakens the will power we need to stay the course, it makes us hungry and finally, it has plenty of calories of its own. So staying the course may mean that you become a tee-totaler, or at least that you cut way back on alcohol. Set a goal: You won’t have a Guinness until your weight is _______ or lower. Something like this should do it.
Fourth, remember that the author of this, or any other page, is not perfect. He may well, from want of understanding or lack of memory, have overlooked something which you should be doing to maintain weight loss. We are told that some stick to the rigid “rice, salt, pig fat, room temperature liquids” from Monday morning until Friday night, and let loose over the weekend. If this works, do it. Weekends of anything you want, or just fruit. Experiment. Let us know if you come up with something good.
