So I just saw a patient that has had a stall in his weight loss. As we discussed his diet, it is fairly clear that he is focusing on protein.
- Breakfast: turkey wrapped in cheese
- Lunch: side salad and chicken breast
- Dinner: more chicken
He seems fairly shocked when I explain that chicken has been associated with weight gain over time. We eat more chicken than any other country and it is the most commonly eaten food in my patients.
Doesn’t mean it is the only reason he is not losing weight but I can guarantee you that after our visit, when he switches beans, fruits and veggies for chicken, he will see serious weight loss. I have seen this SOOOOOO many times. It always works.
