Our expert says:
UNless you are seriously over-weight, you might not need to lose weight. And you know that such voices in your head are part of your schizophrenic illness, and not really God, even if you feel it might be. You should start taking your meds again --- if this is really the voice of God, no medication could take that away. The meds can only take away false voices of a false God, which is misleading you. And the real God would not stop speaking to you when you most needed him. DOn't forget that this is a sneaky illness, which can make you think that that false voices produced by the illness are those of God, when they aren't.
And do visit your psychiatrist again, as soon as this is practical, for a general checkup. He will only want whatever is best for you, and can advise on safe weight-loss as well
How have you selected the "realistic goal" for weight loss ? Did you check with your doc or a dietician to work out the correct weight for your height and general shape ?
