We know that achieving and maintaining a healthy weight can be especially challenging when you’re living with CKD and, for many people, diabetes too.
We can all be tempted by the quick-fix weight loss promises we read in the press and across social media. But how many of these consider the dietary needs of people living with CKD, or how important good nutrition is when you’re trying to manage CKD and diabetes?
There are many reasons why we might want, or need, to achieve a healthier weight. You may have been advised by your medical team to lose weight before it is safe to undergo transplant surgery, or may have gained a few too many kilos post-transplant because you’ve rediscovered how good food can taste after years of a dialysis-suppressed appetite. Or you may just want to address that extra weight sitting around your waistline, to help you enjoy a more active lifestyle.
Working with the British Dietetic Association, Renal Nutrition Specialist Group (RNG), Kidney Kitchen chef Lizzie Morey has developed 20 tasty, kidney-friendly, culturally diverse and satisfying main meal recipes, all geared to help you achieve a healthy weight.
Along with step-by-step instructions on how to prepare the recipes yourself, you will find useful pointers on selecting healthier breakfasts and lunches, along with top tips on how to manage those moments when high-calorie snacks start calling your name!
As with Eat Well Spend Less, our first Kidney Kitchen magazine, Safe Weight Loss is available to order or read online free of charge.
