Th« fftrean tients, a catorie-ottnttfif Book* who has to km wtlfht (MM* '« »» often helpful. Up three: to keep his wttfht off, not tor Oet a calorie* counter. Occasionally, a patient who is supposed to hi on • diet comes into the office showing me how much weight he lost. "Look here, Doc, two weeks ago my belt used to be in this notch. Now T can pull It way over to here," and he shown me that his belt can be tightened two notches further. Still, when I come to place him on the scales, 1 may find lhat he has actually gained two or three pounds. When you ask this person it he ever bothered to get on the scale since he was last in your office he says, no, he didn't think it was necessary. This approach, of course, deserves nothing but a sharp rebuke. The purpose of dieting is to take weight off. For this, you need a scale. Tip four: Without a scale, all is lost. Dieting is serious business. Overweight leads to disability and death from high blood pressure, heart "disease, and diabetes. , net tar of A month, but for* •ver. , On* e«n only Hugh at new** paper and .matfuine articles that promote sensational weight toss through tome food- faddist approach. Let the reader beware when the article it titled, "fresh Sauerkraut Juice Diet for Youthful Figures," or the equally nonsensical "I Lost Thirty-Six Pounds By New Malted Orange-Peel Diet." In these spectacular diets, the patient may lose thirty-slx pounds in three days but will gain forty back in the next week. The first tip for dieters, then is persistence. Don't Emphaslte Speed Unless a person Is troubled by diabetes or high blood pressure or heart failure, It is not necessary to emphasize speed in dieting. Some persons, of course, have no intention of really losing weight. They, arc quite smug and satisfied with themselves as they are. They regard themselves as being more attractive if their face is round with fat and not lined with a few natural wrinkles. These people consider any attempt to take weight off as a threat to their security. And, for them, dieting is only a conversation piece. They want to read about dieting, talk about dieting, but they never want to diet. Suitable motivation may come only with illness. Once they get sick, they may become frightened. Then, and only then, will they be truly motivated to reduce. Some people say, "I can't understand why I don't lose weight, Doctor. I never eat breakfast." The fact of the matter is that, for most persons, skipping breakfast is a good way of getting fat, because it encourages nibbling all day long and, what is even worse, raiding the icebox before supper. Breakfast usually amounts to only about 200 calories and this is exceeded if one has a piece of cake and a glass of milk at bedtime or a brownie after lunch. Don't Cut Meals The second tip, then, is don't cut out any meals. Remember that four s.mall meals of 250-300 caloriesseach will only amount to a 1000 or 1200 calories a day.;;A jtWge, full course din ner : a'f rtlglit can come to close to 3060 calories. If you don't eat during the day, you may be so hungry at night as to devour all this and more. Other patients say, "I can't understand why I haven't lost weight these last few weeks because I have cut out the rich foods." In these cases, the dieting has failed because the patient has turned to larger quantities of less highly caloric foods. It's much as if one spends five pennies instead' of one nickel. You may have cut out the desserts but you take an extra helping of peas or a larger portion of meat. This is not to say that the person on a diet doesn't have OotmetM tHipuoawDftt ejv mi* portant hut so Is health! TTHs leacia u» to tue ^uesfion of massage and exercise. Massage Is a nice thing, tt is restful, relaxing, and often makes a person feel as good as if, let us say, he has a martini. It Is a pleasant way to live If one can afford it, but it has nothing to do with dieting or losing weight from the standpoint of weight reduction, it is likely that the effort involved In massage is more beneficial to the giver than to the receiver. As for exercise, a person has to walk thirty-six miles to lose one pound. This is not to say that one should avoid exercise. Dieting plus exercise will enable a person to lose more weight than dieting alone. But exercise, as a sole method of weight reduction Is usually of little value. Dirt pills and medicines to curb the appetite are often of little value if the patient lacks motivation. The reason that so many different tablets and liquids are available Is that none of them is of universal value.
