    Help me - what should I eat with my chewing problem to lost weight!


    Hello guys. I have serious question. I am thinking about starting some diet but because of my particular bracers on my teeth with kind of delimiter, I can only eat mashes and liquid food, most hard food I manage to eat is loaf of bread without skin with some pate or cream cheese. Vegetable I can blend but I cannot eat meat except of pate, even very soft long cooked chicken is a problem. I will have this delimiter till my back teeth will connect so it will be minimum 8 months from now. Now I live on Huel and bread with pate or cheese and sometimes some mashed vegetables or soups and I am not loosing weight at all . Any hints for me? I really get off my track. Few years ago Heroes diet and excercising with your programs helped me lost some of it. But I gained it back with serious addition, I've had a depression and all is lost now. Now I weight 103 kg and I am really unhappy. I have a feeling that my condition can help me loose weight but I really need directions from someone. Additionally I will start with some light excersises because I didn't move for a long time. Please help me, I will be very grateful.

    Hey TrisK,

    To lose weight, you will have to burn off more calories than what you eat (or drink) on a daily basis. That can be achieved with food in any form, be it solid, liquid or paste.
    Vegetable soups are very healthy, and you don't really need meat in your diet (although eggs can come in handy since they're a very complete source of protein).

    I'm sorry that things have been hard for you lately. I suppose you shouldn't worry too much about what your braces prevent you from eating, but simply try to eat in reasonable amounts while keeping an active lifestyle. The more calories you burn off with exercise and the easier it will be for you to lose weight - even though eating smaller portions will really make the biggest difference.

    Dealing with hunger is never pleasant at first (and you shouldn't eat too little too soon - try to reduce your portions gradually), but it does get easier. In time, you will probably feel lighter instead of hungry.

    Hang in there!

      I‘m very sorry that you are having a hard time. Here are some ideas:

      - porridge with apple sauce
      - yoghurt
      - cooked potatoes and vegetables mashed
      - blended chicken or bean soup
      - smoothies (with yoghurt or protein powder, if you need protein)

        We juice, beets, carrots, apple, celery and ginger. use this juice in a blender and add green leafy stuff like cooked kale, lettuce, peanut butter, almond butter, sunflower seeds, walnuts, pumpkin seeds, cashews, ground flax, turmeric and black pepper.

        Where we live we can buy Dal Curries that come in a 2 person pouch and quite smooth, add to well cooked basmati rice.

        The real thing about weight loss is not just eating less but moving a lot. I worked for a builder as a general labourer working 8 hours a day, doing that will get you trimmed down. People who sit all day and put in a short workout and expect fantastic results may be kidding themselves. Do you climb stairs ? nature walk for miles, you have to be really active.

        Recently I did this 5 day fast eating only cantaloupe one day, watermelon the next then some papaya but be careful with that, I had a bad reaction to papaya, the watermelon day again and finally cantaloupe. I was losing 2 lbs a day = 8lbs in 4 days, although my wife only lost 3lbs.

          Adding to all the other helpful posts: What do you usually drink? Are you drinking soda or other drinks high in sugar or calories? We often tend to forget about the calories in liquids. If your answer is yes, cut those out and drink water or diluted teas instead. As an inbetween step you can drink water-juice mixtures (just look at the ingredients that you get real juice). If you drink alcohol, look up how many calories your drink of choice has and adjust accordingly. If you drink coffee and like to put cream or sugar into it, try to look for alternatives, lessen your additions or adjust your calories during your meals.
          Good luck and I hope things will get better soon

            Thank you all very much!!!
            I found many amazing hints here, it is sometimes not so easy to change something being used to some particular things, you cannot imagine how you can eat differently
            Fortunately I hate soda except of pure water with bubbles, and drink only no sugar rooibos and coffee with milk but no sugar. Main problem is my depression so I drink bit too much alcohol, eat too much and I literally couldn't move for two years..

            Now I find great success to force myself and clean one thing a day - I really lived in deep depression - and my place is now dirty sad thing.
            As I now do this one cleaning a day (in room not cleaned for almost 2 years one cabinet is really great effort) I assume the depression is slowly going away from me.
            So I start slowly. I take care about what I eat first - I will move to smoothies, soups, natural yoghurt and all you said!
            And for now only start to excersise - maybe Foundation Light, because I suppose something more with my state of muscle probably would kill me...

            But thank you a lot!!! You really are very nice community. I dream about joining you and maybe after a year be in another, more healthy and happy place. Closer to
            your fit bunch

              Sounds like you are heading in the right direction! I started about a year ago here with Darebee and I feel a lot better. I still have to lose a lot of weight but I am much fitter.
              And you don‘t have to dream about joining us, you have already joined us! The people here are so nice and supportive, don‘t hesitate to reach out if you need support.

              I thought it might help you to know what my first workout steps were:

                And another yummy food idea:

                Put frozen fruit (raspberries and banana for example) with milk, buttermilk or almond milk in the blender until smooth. So good!

                  A little everyday and a little bit more the next.

                    And for days on which you don‘t feel like cooking, you can make soups in your blender:

                    -Tomato-vegetable: Put tomato juice with carrots, Broccoli and/or zucchini, salt, pepper and herbs of your choice in the blender. Cold as a gazpacho or heat it up in microwave or pot
                    - yoghurt with cucumber, salt and herbs

                      Also lintel and split pea soups. They are nice and soft to begin with or you can send them through the blender and drink them through a straw. Good protein too

                          As Redline said, the key is to consume less calories than you are typically burn in the course of a day, and I believe that you need to measure to manage. Assuming you have access to a smartphone, a tablet, or to web, I strongly recommend getting a free account at myfitnesspal or a similar site. Sites/programs/apps like that will allow you to track your daily food consumption and your exercises, and then you can easily see if, on average, you are eating in excess of what you are burning or not. A point to keep in mind is, as thinman also pointed out, do not rush and don't expect miracle results too soon. Sustainable results can only be achieved through methodical and continued efforts. If you are determined to do it, you are halfway there already. Good luck.

                            I’ll repeat what others have said, you gotta burn more than you take in. I’m glad to hear your moving forward. I started a thread with some recipes a couple months back. You might find something you like: https://darebee.com/hive/kitchen/559...-info-graphics A blender might help you with the foods that you can’t chew.
                            On the life side of things, try listening to the podcast by Jocko Willink. That man has a great deal of wisdom on motivation, discipline and mental toughness. It always reminds me of what’s really important beyond the minute to minute tasks of the day. Good luck.
