Diabetes Prevention: Start Small, Experts Say
Date:11/16/2012

ghing 175 to 215 pounds who wants to lose one or two pounds a week should eat no more than 1,500 calories and 42 grams of fat a day, according to the NIH.

Cutting calories may be easier than you think. The NIH offers some simple suggestions:

  • Substitute vegetables, fruits, beans and whole grains for salty, fatty or sugary foods.
  • Add flavor to foods with herbs, spices and low-fat seasonings.
  • Cut back on added oils and fatty spreads.
  • Bake, grill or steam meats and fish instead of frying them.
  • Serve several whole-grain foods each day.
  • Add sliced bananas or apples to cereal.
  • Serve fruit instead of a high-calorie dessert, and, if you can't resist a sweet treat, share it.
  • Buy and try a new fruit or vegetable (ever had fava beans or papaya?).
  • Keep to a regular eating schedule, and skip seconds.
  • Eat together as a family most days.

Use modern conveniences to your advantage. "Never eat in front of a screen (TV, computer, iPad, phone)," Tamler said. But if you have a smart phone, he advises downloading free software to help with weight loss.

"Get a pedometer and use it every day," he added. "Try to walk 10,000 steps every day. When I cross Central Park from east to west, that's about 2,000 steps."
