Not for me but for my Dad.
It has been an ongoing battle for years now and the opportunity to tackle it has arisen !
My brother is away for 3 weeks and that means the fridge can be emptied of all temptation and I am going to cook for mum and dad during the week to see if we can find out what the problem is – its either the current eating habits or a health issue stopping weight loss and causing other health related issues.
Its a bit of a challenge for me because its always harder to deal with family as they know the right buttons to press to try and get what they awant and are more likely to question what you are saying or ignore it entirely!
I am going to log what I feed him over the period of time and hopefully he shoud feel better and loose some weight, if it really works then his blood pressure should also drop and he shoud have plenty more energy – thats the theory anyhow!
Mum and dads food will be slightly different as mum is not a fan of eggs or meat whilst dad is! Other than that it will be juice first thing ( mum will drink green juice dad wont he will have something else). I will do a packed lunch salad or chilled items and snacks for during the day and for the evening I will cook dinner.
I am hopeful that this can work as I want both of them around for a long time and I think health begins with diet!
Any suggestions as to make this as easy for my dad as possible are welcome !
