  • The push-pull of weight gain | bpHope - bp Magazine Community
    else he said to me You re fat because you re lazy Lithium does not cause weight gain That is so wrong it s ridiculous Carolyn says today Still I felt devastated That was the last time I saw him she says Carolyn has since concluded that you learn more from consumers than from doctors I have a really good doctor right now but I learned the most from online groups by talking to other people about what makes you gain weight what doesn t and what you can do about it Last January Carolyn began taking a mood stabilizer and with it she says The anorexia came back I wasn t really hungry but I thought This is great I started getting a lot of attention from other people for losing weight I lost enough weight about 50 or 60 pounds to be okay and all of a sudden I realized This is me I m happy with me Then I finally got over that whole anorexia thing and got happy with my body Carolyn now approaches her looks by focusing on her best points as well as the many cues she receives from others that she is still appealing at 177 pounds I ve sort of reinvented myself and I know I m still plenty attractive Carolyn says Guys are still looking at me from top to bottom I cut my hair and dyed it blonde I get more attention as a blonde And my legs still look really nice so I wear this pair of knee high boots with a miniskirt and a loose top over it I do look different and I honestly try not to think about it all the time I am a heavier person But I like that person Tom Having grown up in rural Arkansas Tom 54 now lives in San Francisco California where he works as speech coach writer and marketing consultant Over the years he has also been a college instructor radio announcer and TV anchor Tom suffered periods of depression and hyperactivity beginning in his early 20s but only received a bipolar diagnosis at 42 Although his doctors immediately initiated effective drug therapies for Tom and briefly mentioned the possibility of weight gain as a side effect in his view they did not devote enough time to talking about his illness nor his tendency to eat for emotional reasons It s frustrating with the medical profession Tom says You come in and get your meds but I had a psychiatrist who never made eye contact with me I wasn t eating right and I needed education but I didn t get that education from my doctor Our time together was so very limited Eventually Tom found a psychologist with whom he discussed such issues as his emotional dependence on food and an addiction he had developed to nonalcoholic beer The psychologist helped him on both counts At 5 10 a healthy weight for Tom is 170 pounds Drugs he initially took for bipolar caused him to put on an extra 60 pounds Then he gained even more weight following a switch in his drug regimen I d never been heavy before and my self esteem was really low he says I felt disgusted with myself Realizing that the very high nightly dose of the anticonvulsant drug he was taking might be aggravating the weight situation Tom asked his doctor to drop that dose which she did on the condition that they carefully monitor his moods About the time the dose was lowered eight months ago Tom suffered a major crisis the loss of an eight year romantic relationship Those two changes both suppressed his appetite I lost 60 pounds in four months he says Tom now focuses on healthful habits I exercise I walk a lot he says and I have a food coach who reminds me what I need to be eating on a daily basis Right now his food coach has him on potatoes bananas and apples to address what is his underweight status at this writing Tom also volunteers for the Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance DBSA He has met many other individuals who like him began taking medications without understanding all the side effects they might face Invariably I meet people who have been on medications and they re wondering why they blew up physically he says Education is critical Steven Steven age 49 was born and raised in Grand Rapids Michigan where he continues to live today For him misdiagnosed mental illness beginning at age 29 derailed his life s dream of becoming a Baptist minister When I got depressed the churches weren t too hot about working with somebody with nerves he says No one figured out that he had bipolar until he was 47 although he underwent years of treatment for depression and spent spells in psychiatric hospitals Today Steve and his wife who lost a daughter to a drunk driver have started their own agency Heartfelt Counseling Ministries to help people with mental illness and bereavement issues As a registered social worker Steve explains I try to stay in the people business and help people who are hurting Steve is 5 10 tall When he got married at age 23 he weighed 150 pounds Today he is about 60 pounds heavier I personally didn t care that much when I started gaining weight I find that women care a lot more about it than men do unless it gets to a certain point But now I do care because it s affecting my health I was diagnosed as a type 2 diabetic My doctor said I don t think it s tied to the meds but a lot of times even though it s in the literature the practical doctor doesn t know Steve does know that being overweight coupled with having diabetes significantly raises his risk of heart attack The situation worries him and his family and he is taking

  • Cutting cholesterol [and loving your diet] | bpHope - bp Magazine Community
    that was published in March 2006 in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition Following a low saturated fat and low cholesterol diet that is rich in fruits and vegetables and combined with soy almonds fiber and plant sterols helped study participants achieve cholesterol lowering results similar to the results achieved when taking statin drugs The following foods have been shown to help increase heart health many through the action of lowering cholesterol Optimal oats Oats and barley are two grains that contain a good portion of soluble fiber the type that helps reduce cholesterol Heat up a packet of oatmeal and add a teaspoon or two of natural nut butter such as almond butter cashew butter or peanut butter Oat cereals such as Cheerios and Kashi Heart to Heart are marvelous choices to help give cholesterol the heave ho Outstanding omega 3 fatty acids For overall heart health it is important to eat fish says Rosie Schwartz RD a consulting dietitian in Toronto and author of The Enlightened Eater s Whole Foods Guide Penguin 2003 Fish as well as walnuts ground flax seeds pumpkin seeds soy foods and canola oil contain omega 3 fatty acids This important type of fat may help treat and prevent heart disease and arthritis and may help lessen the severity of symptoms in mental health conditions such as bipolar disorder schizophrenia and Alzheimer s disease Salmon cakes recommends Schwartz can easily be made by combining canned salmon with chopped onions whole grain bread crumbs and egg whites Form into patties and cook over medium heat in a lightly oiled pan flipping the patties periodically Serve on a whole grain English muffin or hamburger bun with your favorite condiments Another easy to fix dish packed with omega 3s and suggested by Schwartz is canned sardines chopped and mixed with grated apple onion and light mayo with a twist of lemon This can be eaten in a sandwich or over your favorite greens Nutritious nuts In the 1980s many people became fat phobic and shunned nuts because of their fat content We now know that it is the type of fat in foods that is important nuts are high in unsaturated oils the kind that are good for us However since they are high in fat it means they do pack a lot of calories so portion size is important Be sure to buy nuts raw or dry roasted and unsalted Schwartz recommends planning wise snacks so you have healthy available ammunition when hunger strikes Buy nuts seeds and dried fruit in bulk then make several packets of two tablespoons of nuts and two tablespoons of dried fruit and keep in your fridge she says Since the fruit is dehydrated and the nuts have a lot of calories portioning them into packets is a wise move for your waistline Splendid soy Replacing some foods that are high in animal protein with soy foods such as edamame soy beans tofu soy butter soy nuts and some soy burgers may help keep your arteries clean and your heart healthier A wholesome fast food meal to try at a Chinese restaurant is steamed tofu bean curd over steamed mixed vegetables and rice preferably whole grain brown rice Order ginger or garlic sauce on the side and use sparingly Beautiful beans Beans are a quick source of soluble fiber and protein Schwartz suggests tossing them into salads soups and pasta A simple tasty cholesterol lowering dish of beans and melon such as kidney beans and honeydew melon or black beans and cantaloupe is recommended by Elizabeth Snell BSc RD consulting dietitian nutritionist and president of Snell Associates Nutrition Consultants in Toronto Fantabulous fruits To wake up the flavor in fruit and make it more appetizing consider mixing it with other tasty ingredients Snell suggests mixing berries strawberries blueberries raspberries blackberries etc with cottage cheese or yogurt Snell s tasty banana treat is a snap to prepare Slice a banana lengthwise spread almond butter between the two halves place back together and cut into banana wheels Oranges are particularly helpful in lowering cholesterol so Snell recommends this as a great addition to an oatmeal breakfast Valuable vegetables Eating a variety of greens could not be easier Microwavable bags filled with cut and washed greens such as spinach kale and broccoli rabe are now available in your supermarket There are no stems to snip and no pots to wash Snell recommends keeping baby carrots on hand and dipping them into hummus a super healthy bean spread This also works well with other raw vegetables such as broccoli and cherry tomatoes Grand garlic Garlic adds a tantalizing flavor and aroma to many foods and goes especially well with greens A great time saver is buying fresh minced garlic in a jar heat one teaspoon of minced garlic in a pan with a tablespoon of olive oil for several minutes and then mix in your favorite steamed or microwaved greens A touch of black pepper oregano and rosemary will give a beautiful flavor that you are sure to enjoy Foods fortified with plant sterols and stanols Some margarines orange juice cereals breads and granola bars have been fortified with plant derivatives that have been shown to help reduce cholesterol These compounds are found naturally in small amounts in fruits vegetables beans grains nuts and seeds so eating more of these types of nutritious foods and less junk food will help keep high cholesterol at bay Remember It may take six to 12 months to see results from adding cholesterol lowering foods reducing cholesterol increasing foods and increasing your exercise so hang in there and enjoy the cholesterol lowering ride The habits you form will reward you for the rest of your life Tricia Silverman RD LDN MBA is a registered dietitian and owns NuTricia s Lifestyles a nutrition and business consulting firm in Dedham Massachusetts SIDEBAR Jean Callon Give yourself a weight break I would say to people who have gained weight or are gaining

  • ‘POUND’ advice | bpHope - bp Magazine Community
    When she began her weight loss program six years ago Randi also planned what she put in her wallet A self confessed fast food junkie she decided to carry just a few dollars in cash so she couldn t afford a quick fix at the drive through These days she s less tempted With good health as her goal eating well and exercising have become second nature Losing the weight was very very slow she reflects In terms of maintenance it gets a lot easier It s just how I live 3 Control portions I m working on living according to my wise daughter s words Mom you can eat what you want just not how much you want K B Ontario Amy R of Wind Lake Wisconsin 34 devotes a chunk of her Sunday to weighing out serving sizes of her groceries into sealable plastic bags for grab and go portion control She says it s time well spent Measuring things out is especially helpful for busy lifestyles says the mother of two who is taking a double course load towards her RN degree Amy R first used the weigh and measure approach in her late 20s losing 82 pounds she had gained after going through a divorce As an emotional eater she says she tends to overeat when she s depressed Mania has the opposite effect During one manic episode she recalls I went five days doing nothing but drinking milk Four years after her bipolar diagnosis however Amy R s scale was giving her bad news Prompted by weight related health problems she committed to losing 150 pounds Returning to her successful strategy she has lost 50 pounds over six months To control portions at dinner Amy R has different measuring cups for the appropriate serving size of vegetables fruits and side dishes For those who prefer a more casual approach Holly Dickinson RD a clinical dietitian at Toronto General Hospital recommends strategies from diabetes education One is the plate model a visual shorthand that allots half the dinner plate to vegetables a quarter to carbohydrates and a quarter to protein Another option is using your hand as a rough guide Having a piece of protein the size of the palm of your hand having a serving of cheese two finger lengths as much carbohydrates or fruit as you can hold in the palm of your hand she explains Duncan M of Edmonton Alberta 38 has an even simpler technique to control portions Use a smaller diameter plate for your meals Research done at Cornell University backs him up Consumer psychologist Brian Wansink PhD director of the Cornell Food and Brand Lab has shown that eating off salad plates rather than dinner plates contributes to weight loss Like Appelhans Wansink believes in changing your environment so that it works for you rather than against you right down to your dishware His take People don t think that something as simple as the size of a bowl would influence how much an informed person eats Yet his research shows that children given a larger cereal bowl will take a larger serving of cereal and people will pour roughly a third more liquid into short wide glasses than into tall skinny glasses of the same volume Duncan who found out he has bipolar five years ago says the small plate trick helped him drop from 240 pounds back down to his pre diagnosis weight of 190 The trick is to have just one helping and not go back for more he says wryly If you go back for a second helping you re not helping yourself much 4 Keep track I write down everything I eat Sometimes I feel embarrassed to write down how I overate but avoiding that embarrassment keeps me on track most of the time L S Georgia According to an extensive study of effective weight loss methods published in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine in August 2008 keeping track of every morsel you eat in a food diary or food journal may keep you from taking that second helping Those who kept daily food records lost twice as much weight as those who kept no records lead study author Jack Hollis PhD a researcher at Kaiser Permanente s Center for Health Research in Portland Oregon said at the time It seems that the simple act of writing down what you eat encourages people to consume fewer calories Caroline B of Portland Oregon prefers a more interactive method What has worked best for me is to use a calorie counting app reports Caroline 52 who has lost 29 pounds in the last year For some reason doing it on the phone app is much easier for me Caroline s bipolar was diagnosed two years ago She says having her moods under better control thanks to medication and light therapy means not only fewer cravings for her go to comfort foods but also a better frame of mind to make good choices The free app meanwhile puts nutrition information on thousands of items at her fingertips Caroline says the instant feedback encourages her to limit portions to the recommended serving size and opt for lower calorie foods The Mental Health and Metabolism Clinic of the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health in Toronto encourages using a food record says Dr Tony A Cohn the clinic s lead psychiatrist Cohn specializes in metabolic monitoring for patients on antipsychotic medication which includes identifying metabolic syndrome a constellation of risk factors for heart disease and diabetes He says any form of self monitoring tracking calories or exercise writing down your feelings before you eat weighing yourself once a week can be a useful intervention because it brings attention to the issue It s a well known technique for any behavior change he explains Along with calorie intake a food diary can be used to check off servings of each food group or identify when overeating tends to occur Brenda
