Diabetes Weight Loss: Week by Week

Diabetes Weight Loss—Week by Week guides the overweight person with diabetes through the steps to lasting weight loss, better health, and perhaps even improved blood glucose control. The reader will learn to set reasonable goals; make better choices in restaurants, the grocery store, and the kitchen; self-monitor food intake, activity, and progress; read food labels; distinguish appetite from hunger; navigate a restaurant menu or buffet; examine motivation; and more. More than 23 million adult Americans have some form of diabetes, and more than two-thirds of the adults with type 2 diabetes are significantly overweight or obese. Many of these individuals feel that controlling blood glucose and weight are conflicting goals and that they must choose one over the other. This books dispels that myth by educating the reader about the benefits of good nutrition and weight loss. Losing weight may improve blood glucose; blood pressure; cholesterol and triglyceride levels; increase mobility, comfort, and confidence; reduce the risk for heart disease; and improve overall quality of life. Many overweight people have tried unsuccessfully to lose weight one or more times. Frequently, dieters lose weight, only to regain it within months. With this book’s week-by-week approach and emphasis on incremental changes, the reader will increasingly gain the knowledge, skills, and confidence required for permanent change. Throughout the book, readers will learn from the triumphs of others by reading their brief stories. A handful of recipes will guide the reader to making changes in the kitchen. Among many other lessons and skills, readers will: Record and review their food intakePractice setting achievable goalsIdentify the benefits and sacrifices of changing eating and physical activity routinesLearn to deal with friends and family members who sabotage lifestyle change effortsLearn to recover from dietary setbacks and indiscretionsDiscover mindful eatingIdentify filling foodsDecrease portionsIdentify and avoid trigger foods and situationsPrepare healthful foodsCreate positive, supportive situationsGradually increase physical activityAvoid hypoglycemia while losing weight

My Weight Loss Coach

My Weight Loss Coach (known as My Health Coach: Manage Your Weight in Europe) is a game for the Nintendo DS portable video game system. It was released on June 24, 2008 by Ubisoft and developed by Ubisoft Montreal. The purpose of the game is to motivate players to reach and maintain a healthy lifestyle and target weight. In addition the game was developed with nutritionists, and includes a free pedometer to help provide the user with better results.[1]

Playing the game[edit]

While playing the game users create a personal profile to track performance and map out objectives based on personal information. While users continue to eat and participate in a healthy lifestyle, they are encouraged to input daily eating and exercise habits in order to achieve virtual rewards. The free pedometer is intended to be used to help players keep track of their physical fitness and can be updated through their Nintendo DS. By receiving immediate feedback from their device, users are also encouraged to challenge themselves.[1]

How the game works[edit]

Section 1: Personalize:
While personalizing their profile (including information such as age, weight, height, etc….) users are asked a series of questions in order for the game to get a better understanding of their goals. Upon the completion and submission of information and objectives, the game will calculate BMI (Body Mass Index), and create a program best suited for them.[2]

Section 2: Daily objectives:
Based on personal needs, preferences, and goals, players can determine how they intend on achieving a healthier lifestyle. The game will then create daily sessions in order to provide users with strategies to overcome specific challenges with a positive attitude. And, at the end of each day, players are encouraged to input daily physical activity, and recorded information from the pedometer, in order to yield better results.[2]

Section 3: Challenges:
The game also includes daily and weekly challenges intended to keep players motivated and on top of their goals. With up to 500 challenges, all catered to specific objectives, the game aims to provide players with a fun way to stay on track of their healthy lifestyle.[2]

Section 4: Progress tracking:
Finally, the game reminds users of their accomplishments. With the use of graphs and charts, My Weight Loss Coach keeps a record of players’ achievements and allows them to access information on all recorded data, including: view your steps, energy balance (the balance between a players food intake and physical activity), and weight and BMI.[2]

Reception[edit]

The game received mixed reviews on Metacritic, scoring an average of 63%.

IGN rated the game a 7, and said that: “My Weight Loss Coach isn’t some cure-all casual game, but it’s a neat companion to a full-on workout, or a great way to learn a bit more about the much-needed lifestyle change that comes with working out and eating right.”[3]

IT Reviews was a bit less enthusiastic, commenting that the game was “more of an informational guide than a motivational tool and even in this light the results and dietary advice on offer mostly consist of ball-park estimations that will have little impact on fine-tuning a lifestyle. Shop around and you’ll find it available cheaply, however, so DS owners who may have considered buying a pedometer could do far worse than pick up this application for its additional feedback and ability to record and store daily activity.”[4]

EuroGamer said that: “As an actual coach it really only works in general terms: there’s no way to finely tailor the experience for your own capabilities in ways that an actual person could, and there’s not much to commit you if the determination lapses.”[5]
