Visit with my Doc
Wednesday, July 29, 2020
So yesterday I had my yearly exam with my Gyno. Everything was fine, just a check up. I talked with her about the Eat like a Bear (see previous blog) program and she was excited for me. She was very encouraging and said I can't wait to see you next year and see all the progress you have made!
Hubby, on the other hand, went to see our medical doc on Monday and he was not as encouraging about ELAB IF program. He recently had gastric bypass and I guess is now encouraging others to inquire about surgery. He stressed the importance of eating 5 or 6 small meals a day and that IF and only eating once a day was not good for our metabolism.
Hubby is down 14 lbs and I am down 26 lbs. I would say we are doing something right for only being on this WOE for 6 weeks tomorrow.
My appt with our medical doc is at the end of August and instead of telling him I am doing ELAB, I am going to explain we have cut out all sugar and are only eating under 20 carbs a day. I will assess his reaction and then if he is happy, I am not sure I will tell him I am only eating in a 1 hour window each day.
Not every diet, way of eating, etc works for everyone. That is why there are so many options available. Am I wrong for thinking this?
I really thought our doc would be open to this plan since it was in fact developed by a doc but no, not so much.
Would love to hear your thoughts.
Thank you for reading and be well.
