I’ve not been successful at dieting without counting

calories (including grams of fat), combined with exercise. If I

really want to lose weight, that’s what I do. Most people with PSC

do better with a lowered fat intake (30 gms/day) and limited animal protein

intake. Vitamins are probably a good idea. I suspect even more so

if you have a j-pouch, but I’d ask your Dr. about that.

In order to lose a pound a week, you need to cut back about 500

calories/day. Exercise counts! If you walk 3 miles a day, you get

to subtract 300 calories. For a fairly active person, the rule of thumb

is to take your weight (in pounds) and multiply by 15 – that’s the caloric

intake required to maintain your weight. So, if I wanted to lose a pound

a week, I’d go from 2625 calories (175*15) per day to 2125 calories.

500 calories is about two Krispy Kreme doughnuts, which I can easily forego

(not to mention the accompanying 28 gms of fat!).

Volumetrics works well (http://www.webmd.com/diet/volumetrics-what-it-is).

Low energy density foods such as soup broths, low-starch vegetables, fruits, non-fat

milk, etc. Limit high density foods such as crackers, nuts, cookies, chips,

oils, chocolate (sigh). Water by itself does not sate your hunger.

The bad part is that you have to keep it up for weeks – nothing

is easy, or fast, about losing weight, but it sure is easy to put it on!
