Much Ado About Weight Loss Among Black Hollywood

Much Ado About Weight Loss Among Black Hollywood

Commented Apr 16, 2012 at 18:31:59 in Black Voices

“And lets not forget it can be very motivating to receive a nice, fat check to lose and keep the weight off. These celebrity endorsers get paid a pretty penny to promote their brand. I would think with that amount of money on the line, these celebrities would work out all day if they had to. Not to take away from their accomplishments. I, of all people, as a graduate of WW know how difficult it can be, but I could use some of that monetary motivation to work out right now :-)”

Health Writer Tara Parker-Pope Reveals Her Weight Loss Plan

“I have the answer no one wants to hear. Stop eating processed foods! It's all the "light this" and "low fat that" that cause obesity. Last year I gave up sugar, dairy and wheat and lost 20 pounds without dieting or exercise. I eat vegetables, fruit, beans, nuts, eggs, fish, chicken and grass fed beef. Conscious, healthy, natural eating is the key. Also, if you have an emotional connection with food, you have to work on that or you'll never stay thin. I used to be addicted to sugar, so if I can do it, anyone can. Not only do I feel better, but I feel that staying at a lower weight isn't as much of an effort.”

“I think you overreacted. What I hear her saying is that if you make the decision to work outside the home and you also have a family to take care of, that you shouldn't complain about the extra burdens you carry. Whether you agree or not, I don't think she's saying women shouldn't work. If you do not have a husband or children, then you do not have those competing obligations, and therefore her comment has nothing to do with you.”

“I do agree, but I tend to refer to them as "guidelines," rather than rules :-) Avoids rebellion.”

“I'm confused! WHY are you trying to lose weight? If you're seeing the nutritionist for hypoglycemia, then the goal as I see it should be to get control over your blood sugar, not lose weight, especially since you are already at a healthy weight for your height. It seems you are driving yourself crazy for nothing. I see you are focused on your waist, but you can't lose in a particular place on your body if you're built that way. If the nutritionist thinks you should be eating a certain way to decrease bloating in that area, that's one thing (dairy and wheat can sometimes cause bloating issues), but I don't understand your focus on getting down to 120. We all have an unobtainable weight we'd like to be, but at some point you have to just focus on being as healthy as possible.”

“Those were goals with her. I was 132 at the start of the diet and while that's technically healthy, it was close to unhealthy so I wanted to get things under control. She helped me form a meal plan. I have to eat a lot throughout the day to balance the blood sugar and she helped me choose the best things when. You probably have to see me to get the weight and waist part. I am now doing just as you said, taking time to be as healthy as possible. But it's still important to make sure it's working.”
