    Diabetes Weight Loss

    Q. I've been diagnosed w/ diabetes and my doctor told me I need to lose weight.  Can you help?

    A. Weight loss can be beneficial to people with diabetes in helping them control blood sugar.  It is important to consider the calories you take in as well as exercising to burn calories when you are trying to lose weight.

    What affects weight loss or weight gain?

    Weight loss and weight gain are affected by:
    1. Food Consumption (calories consumed)
    2. Energy Expended (activity such as exercise)
    How?

    One pound of body weight is equal to 3500 calories.  Lose 1 pound of weight each week by reducing food consumed daily by 250 calories and increasing energy expended by 250 calories for a total daily calorie deficit of 500.  Five hundred calories per day x 7 days per week = 3500 calories, or one pound weight loss per week.

    How many calories should I eat?

    Use our Diabetes Profile Tool to determine how many calories your body needs (at rest) to maintain current body weight.  Next, choose an activity factor provided below the body calculator results and multiply this factor by calories at rest.  The result is the amount of calories your body requires to maintain current weight.  Weight loss occurs when you decrease calories consumed or increase calories used.  Select a healthy meal plan and get into the habit of exercising 30-45 minutes every day.

    How can I keep the weight off?

    The goal of long term weight loss is best accomplished by adopting eating and exercise habits that you will stick with every day.  Gaining weight doesn't occur overnight and neither does losing it.  Do not become discouraged, stay focused on your goal and know that it takes time.  When weight loss occurs, you will be able to move better, breathe better, and resting heart rate will decrease making exercise a bit easier to accomplish each day.

    What are the benefits of weight loss?

    Benefits of weight loss and physical fitness are numerous.  Just a few of these benefits are better control of blood sugar levels, reduction of blood pressure, and increased "good cholesterol".
