Our expert says:
It may be a good idea for you to consult a clinical psychologist (look them up in the Yellow Pages under 'Psychologists/Sielkundiges') to help you to find out why you are sabotaging your attempts to lose weight and to stick to a low-GI diet for your insulin resistance. The psychologist need to actually be a specialist in weight management, but you can of course ask when you make the appointment if the given psychologist specialises in weight-related problems and if the receptionist can perhaps refer you to someone who does. In the meanwhile do stick to the diet prescribed by the dietitian as far as possible because even if you don't lose any weight right now, it is essential that you stick to a low-GI, low-fat eating plan to prevent yourself from developing type 2 diabetes.
