I’m new here and have just seen the group on BBC Breakfast. I’m 47 and weigh 110Kgs. I was diagnosed with heart failure last summer and lost just over 20kgs in a 4 week period mainly due to not eating for a few weeks with my illness and shedding a load of accumulated fluid while on heavy doses of diuretics (losing 10kg overnight merely by going for a pee being a quite spectacular highlight). I’ve been gradually putting weight on since being discharged from hospital, some is rebuilt muscle but most is fat and I want to reverse things and get to a healthy weight. I no longer drink or smoke since my diagnosis and have started running and going to the gym but my diet isn’t anywhere near as good as it should be.
Mainly after tips and motivation help and hopefully be able to contribute back while I’m here.
