Thomas asks…

What are the best dieting foods to eat during the course of a day?

I am currently dieting and it’s working, plus I am in the gym again. I am not fat just gettitng a little loose, I used to play soccer and do step aeorbics in high school, yet I am not happy about my current look. I know dieting foods, I just want to hear more strategies from various people.

Inform me.

The first answer is just from someone most people don’t want to hear from or like. Get a grid smarty!

Maybe it would help you if you didn’t look at things as “diet foods”. When you want to eat something (which you should do often, like every 2-3 hours), think to yourself – what benefit am I getting from this? So instead of thinking of things you CAN’T eat b/c you’re trying to firm up, try thinking of what you CAN eat to help you. What you do eat is much more important that what you don’t eat. And the little things do add up. For example – try a small handful of nuts, but remember to get them without salt. No need for that extra sodium. And drink TONS of water. I know it sounds very cliche, but once you get into a habit of really staying hydrated, you realize how much better you feel. Oh, and fresh, raw veggies are great. Just remember, the more natural a food is, and the less processed, the better it is for you. Good luck friend!

Robert asks…

Has your cat lost a good amount of wieght on diet food?

I have had my cat on diet food for about 8 months now and he keeps gradually loosing wieght. I’m starting to think he’s loosing to much. He was kinda fat and now he’s maybe average or below average. Do you think the food is main reason or maybe he has tape worms? Does heartworms make cats loose wieght? He never goes outside either, he is strictly an indoor cat. I can’t get an appointment until Friday. I’m a little worried.

weight loss cardiff answers:

Cats are infected with heartworms by the bite of an infected mosquitoe. Mosquitoes live in swampy areas where the water is still. Do you live near a place like that?

As for the tapeworms, they come from fleas. Kitty grooms himself and ingests a flea. The tapeworm cycle begins. Fleas are everywhere..dry areas and wet areas. Even if kitty doesn’t go outside, you or your family can bring fleas in yourself, they can come through open doors and windows.

Does kitty eat well, just continuing to lose weight? Loosing weight is a sign for many illness. The vet will draw blood and maybe urine for analysis and check his thyroid, kidneys, liver, blood sugar levels and CBC.

If the vet is concerned about the heartworms, he can use a few drops to examine under a microscope for microfilaria (heartworm larvae). And also perform inhouse antibody test. Outward signs of heartworm can be similar to other illnesses, but coughing and rapid/difficulty breathing are two signs that make the vet consider heart problems.

I have attached a link with good information on heartworms in cats, plus a map of the US showing high concentration areas.

Also, what kind of ‘diet food’ do you have kitty on? Many of the diet foods are dry and generally dry food does not have the best nutrition for kitties. Cats are carnivores and need meat. The diet formulas are full of corn and grains, but no meat. I will attach another link to cat nutrition written by a veterianarian and cat lover.

The third link is to a cat body condition weight chart. You can compare your kitty to this chart to see if he is at his ideal or underweight.

Purrs to you and kitty.
