Q: I am a diabetic with
heart disease. I had a mild heart attack 2 years ago. Since that
time I have been on a regular workout routine alternating cardio and
strength training 5 to 7 days a week. I currently count carbs so
that I know how much insulin to take. I use a insulin pump so I have
complete flexibility in my dosage routine. I am 52, 6 ft tall and
215. Over the past 18 months I have gained 20 pounds and I want to
get rid of it. Will your program work for me?
A: It's fantastic that you
are already strength training, doing cardio and watching your diet.
However, the Burn The Fat program may not be appropriate for
everyone. You should always check with your physician before
starting an exercise and or diet program, but especially when you
have special clinical or medical considerations.
In the introduction of the Burn The Fat, Feed The
Muscle (BFFM) e-book, I wrote that the purpose of the BFFM program
"To help healthy people with no medical conditions or
health problems to reach their cosmetic fitness and body composition
goals (fat loss / muscle gain) through nutrition, exercise and
proper mental approach."
I am not a medical professional or registered
dietician; I am a health, fitness, and personal success coach. I am
not qualified to give medical or clinical advice.
BFFM has already received the "thumbs up" from
registered dieticians, exercise physiologists and several physicians
who have used the program themselves, and nearly any health
professional would agree that the BFFM "baseline diet" program and
the BFFM exercise guidelines are an extremely healthy way for
active, fitness-minded people to stay fit and lean for life.
However, the Burn The fat program was NOT designed to
accommodate any special needs or adjustments for individuals with
diabetes, heart disease, thyroid disorder, or any other health,
medical or clinical metabolic conditions.
The use of diet and nutrition to control metabolic
disorders and disease can be a very complicated science and that is
not the purpose of my programs.
Although you may benefit from much of the information
in the book (and every person alive would benefit from the
information on goals, motivation and self image psychology since it
applies equally to all areas of life), you should check with your
physician and or dietician/nutritionist before making any changes to
your exercise or diet programs.
I have quite a few connections in the health and
fitness industry, so if you are at a loss about where to turn for
information specific to your personal needs, I will be happy to
provide you with a referral to the appropriate qualified
professional (registered dietician or clinical nutritionist). Just
