Our expert says:
You are the only person on earth who can take the decision to stick to your low-GI, low-fat diet and adhering to your gym sessions (do at least 4 a week for 60 min at a time). No one else can motivate you. You have seen that this jumping from one diet to the other does not work and may in fact make things worse because you may well be suffering from yo-yo dieting syndrome (as you suspect). Because of your insulin resistance you will need to use a low-fat, low-GI diet for the rest of your life, and also do regular exercise, so now is the time to start. If you lack self-control, then try using self-motivation tapes like Innertalk. Contact Innertalk at www.innertalk.com or www.motivators.co.za for motivational tapes to get you going on the diet and the exercise. Also remember to take your thyroid medication every day as prescribed by your dr.
