Weight Loss Success: Ed Cooper Made Over His Relationship To Food And Lost 96 Pounds

Mar 2nd, 2012
Comments Off on Weight Loss Success: Ed Cooper Made Over His Relationship To Food And Lost 96 Pounds

Got a success story of your own? Send it to us at success.stories@huffingtonpost.com and you could be featured on the site!

Name: Edward Cooper Age: 44 Height: 5'10" Before Weight: 260 pounds

How I Gained It: Since I was eight years old, I have been overweight. I have always had a difficult relationship with food. Unhealthy eating habits were created during my childhood. My family enjoyed eating out often, and I was always expected to finish my plate. This created a very bad relationship with food early on. Food was definitely a pacifier for me. As I got older, in my teens, I started experimenting with different diets. I tried to improve myself and increase my self-esteem. This included several diets with the same end result: always gaining the weight back and eventually gaining more. This pattern followed me through adulthood. I've done it all -- prepackaged foods, liquid diets, no-carb diets, cabbage diets, grapefruit diets -- almost every diet under the sun, which always resulted with substantial weight loss and later substantial weight gain. I did not understand why this kept on happening, and I became increasingly frustrated.

Breaking Point: I was done with yo-yo dieting. This finally led me to the realization -- "If you find yourself stuck in a hole, stop digging." I started to question myself on why I had such a bad relationship with food. After tremendous research, I decided to approach the problem from a different perspective. First, I needed to admit that I had an addiction and a compulsion towards food. Second, I needed to take full responsibility for the good and the bad.

How I Lost It: I changed my lifestyle, focusing on three stages -- the past, the present and the future. From my childhood, I needed to understand how I formed these bad habits. From the present, I needed to find a lifestyle that fit into my daily routine. Finally, I needed to find out how to continue maintaining a healthy life in the future. I did extensive research on restaurant menus to find healthy choices that allow me to live the lifestyle that I enjoy. My eating habits have drastically changed. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day to me. I typically have eggs, oatmeal and an English muffin with jam. Lunch is usually low-fat peanut butter with low-calorie bread. For dinner, a large salad with fat-free dressing, lean protein, like fish or chicken, and steamed or grilled vegetables. As an after dinner snack, I have fresh watermelon, berries or peaches.

I used to never work out. Watching TV and eating were my strenuous exercises. But I started walking two miles each day and gradually increased it by half a mile at a time until I could walk 13.1 -- I just finished the Palm Beach half-marathon and have never felt better. After pushing myself to strenuously walk such a great distance, eating was the last thing on my mind. Walking was a tool to keep me motivated to reach my goal.

Finding a balance between increasing my calories so I don't lose more weight or gain weight is a constant battle that I am conscious of to this day. It's important to weigh myself every week to gauge my weight so I can make adjustments to the amount of food I am consuming as needed. But, with the help of my ten basic commandments of dieting, I've maintained my weight loss. They are:

1. Be real and honest with yourself (i.e., for me, it was admitting I have an addiction and compulsion) 2. Understand how you gained the weight and why. 3. Find a diet and a lifestyle that works for you. 4. Plan in advance your daily eating plan. 5. Set a realistic goal. 6. Variety is the spice of life. 7. The scale is not your friend or your enemy, it is just a number. 8. Take baby steps when exercising. 9. Get a support system. 10. Envision how wonderful it will be to achieve your goal throughout the journey and when you get there. In addition, plan how you want to keep the weight off.

I discovered a way of losing weight after years of struggling and yo-yo dieting and now, I would like to help others do the same through my website Edthewellnesscoach.com.

After Weight: 164 pounds

Lion starters lean on role players

Mar 2nd, 2012
Comments Off on Lion starters lean on role players

UNIVERSITY PARK The five of them wont step on the mat for a match this weekend and none have a chance of capturing an individual championship.

But that doesnt mean the quintet of Nittany Lion backups wont have an impact on the No. 2 Nittany Lions quest to win a second consecutive Big Ten team

wrestling title in West Lafayette, Ind.

Should the Nittany Lions repeat as

champs, well, Andrew Alton, Matt Brown, Jordan Conaway, Dirk Cowburn and Clay Steadman will have had a direct hand in their efforts as all five will make the trip in order to push their competing teammates.

Theyre still part of the team, and their actions and the attitude that they bring with us and they bring to practice every day is critical, coach Cael Sanderson said. Its not easy... (when) youre trying to figure out who to take.

Sanderson and his staff had a good idea earlier this week of which extras the team would take on its trip to Indiana. Brown, who completed a stellar redshirt-freshman season with a 27-2 record and a runner-up finish at the National Collegiate Open last weekend, was a no-brainer for Sanderson.

Brown has been a reliable backup all year, filling it at 174 to 197 pounds for the Lions in duals and compiling an undefeated dual-meet mark in dominant fashion normally reserved for a starter.

The others, however, have found success in the background and, in Steadmans case, off the mat entirely.

Hes one of the guys were taking because hes a positive, happy, fun guy and thats what we want, Sanderson said of Steadman, whos missed the last two years of his career after injuries have kept him off the mat. We want him around our team. Itd be nice to have somebody that could drill and warm them up, but attitude is more important than that at this point to us.

Boost your eating habits

Comments Off on Boost your eating habits

Posted: Friday, March 2, 2012 12:00 am | Updated: 10:58 pm, Thu Mar 1, 2012.

We all have habits when it comes to eating some are good and some are not so good.

Some routines we have had since childhood and some are newer to our daily life. Its important to look more deeply at the way we do things when we are trying to get to a healthier weight, maintain a healthy weight or manage something like diabetes.

Here are some not-so-good habits that may cause us to gain weight: Eating too fast; Always cleaning our plate; Eating when not hungry; Eating while standing up (may lead to eating mindlessly or too quickly); Always eating dessert; and Skipping meals (or maybe just breakfast).

The writer of this article had the privilege of visiting with LaVonne Elfring about how she manages to stay on a healthy path.

She is married to Jerry - has two daughters, two sons-in-law and three grandchildren. Growing up on a farm in Iowa and being involved in basketball, she kept active.

In high school, she moved to Nebraska and became involved in league basketball and synchronized swimming, which she continued while attending the University of Nebraska, Lincoln.

In the 1960s, she provided an exercise program on local television and taught physical activity classes in Lincoln.

She retired from Cedars, a non-profit organization focused on the safety and well-being of children and youth, where she worked with teen moms and their babies in the TLC group home, which she found very rewarding.

Now in her early 70s, she is actively volunteering in the community.

Comments Off on How to eat for a healthier, leaner, more energetic body

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT)-Learning how to eat properly can be one of the best things you cando for your health.

It may take some getting used to, but in as little as 21 days you can create new habits and teach your taste buds to crave the good foods and avoid the bad.

Fad dietswill alwayscome and go, but thepositive results won't last.

It's bestif you stick to the basics to helpyou lose weight, have more energy and improve your overall health.

Sonia Nelson, a registered dietician, owner of Nutrition in Motion, says she is seeing more and more people become pre diabetic, even if they are young or thin. That's why, she explains, that fueling our bodies with the right foods and quantities isn't only for someone who is overweight or older, but rather something that everyone needs to do.

Consuming too much sugar is one of the biggest obstacles that people have. A reason for this is that sugar is often lurking in many foods that we don't associate as sweet, such as ketchup or energy bars.

Nelson explained that sugar comes in different forms- fructose, lactose and sucrose.

Fructose is the kind that is naturally found in fruit and is ok to consume.

Lactose is found in many dairy product,such as milk and yogurt and is also ok.

Sucrose is the bad sugar and should be avoided. Nelson says we should limit these sugars to about three to four cubes a day.

WEBSITE OF THE DAY: Weight Wins

Comments Off on WEBSITE OF THE DAY: Weight Wins

Time for a quick check-in with those New Year resolutions, people.

How's it all going? Still off the fags? Still drinking two litres of water a day? Still getting your five a day?

Yes? Good for you.

But if one of your resolutions was to lose a bit of weight, and you're finding it a bit of a struggle (sorry we really shouldn't have made a big deal out of pancake day) then http://www.weightwins.com could be worth a try.

They're not really all that interested in how you lose weight. As long as you do it safely and sensibly they'll reward you.

And not with badges, stickers or patronising slaps on the back either.

Here, if you lose a few pounds you gain a few pounds in the shape of reward vouchers or even cold hard cash.

As incentives go, it's hard to beat and we reckon this could be one really good way to drop a kilo or two and keep it dropped.

But just one more pancake first - we seem to have some batter left over

Weight-Loss Surgery Safe for Obese Kidney Disease Patients

Mar 2nd, 2012
Comments Off on Weight-Loss Surgery Safe for Obese Kidney Disease Patients

Newswise Washington, DC (March 1, 2012) Weight-loss surgery is safe for chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients who are obese, according to a study appearing in an upcoming issue of the Journal of the American Society Nephrology (JASN). The study is the largest of its kind to focus on the impact of kidney function on patients health following weight-loss surgery.

Its not known whether weight-loss surgeryalso known as bariatric surgeryis safe for patients with CKD or how diminished kidney function might impact the risks of the procedure. To find out, Nicole Turgeon, MD, John Sweeney, MD (Emory University School of Medicine), and their colleagues analyzed information from 27,736 patients who underwent weight-loss surgery between 2006 and 2008.

The researchers found that patients with more severe CKD experienced more complications following surgery. Complication rates ranged from 4.6% for those with stage 1 CKD or normal kidney function to 9.9% for those with stage 5 CKD.

Even though patients with more severe CKD experienced more complications, complication rates remained below 10%. This work provides strong evidence that it is safe to proceed with bariatric surgery in kidney failure patients who suffer from obesity, said Dr. Sweeney.

The findings are encouraging because maintaining weight loss is challenging for CKD patients, many of whom have a decreased ability to exercise. Also, obesity can limit CKD patients eligibility for kidney transplants. Whether the potential benefits of weight-loss surgery outweigh the risks in this population requires further study, though.

Study co-authors include Sebastian Perez, Max Mondestin, MD, S. Scott Davis, MD, Edward Lin, DO, Sudha Tata, MD, Allan Kirk, MD, PhD, Christian Larsen, MD, DPhil, Thomas Pearson, MD, DPhil (Emory University School of Medicine).

Disclosures: The authors reported no financial disclosures.

The article, entitled The Impact of Renal Function on Outcomes of Bariatric Surgery, will appear online at http://jasn.asnjournals.org/ on March 1, 2012, doi: 10.1681/ASN.2011050476.
