    Weight loss for middle aged muslim women...

    Salamalikum forum!

    From my name you can probably guess this is not for me...
    This is a big issue for people...especially asian women!

    So any tips...i want to tell my mum - i keep telling her to change diet...but mashaAllah her food is so nice cant stop having it

    All i can think of is like walking...what else can a middle aged muslimah do?!

        weight watchers or slimming world? slimming world i think is quite good because she can have the same food but adapt the way she makes it, asian food is quite healthy other than the oil content.. so like if she can adapt the recipe then she can eat it without worrying, u can get low calorie oil sprays but obviously it is not as easy 2 cook with it in exactly the same way like frying onions etc wil get u a better result with real oil but still u can make normal food in this kinda low fat and healthy way and its something easier to impliment than just to stop eating or only live on salad
        she could go 2 a womens gym, or have some exercise machines @ home, as well as walking

          Maybe you ask her to cut down on the frying, stop snacking, reducing meal size, eat 5 fruit/veg a day, etc

          Insha Allah that helps

            getting out and walking or working out is really helpful too.. if she wants to be alone and do some cardio... a wii fit plus is wonderful... if she's eating a lot of fried or processed foods or sugary sodas cutting them out will help... but honestly.. even w/ a change in diet ... exercise really does help and its good for things that aren't "just" weight loss.

            (by the way before anyone thinks i'm critical.. i'm in the gym 4-5 days at least a week.. and its also great stress relief.

            If she's doing all that and still having problems she may want to see a doctor to make sure there are no health reasons like diabestes or thyroid issues that will affect weight loss.

              Best would be to ask the doctor, GP maybe? i think they give a rough idea and sometimes diet plan.

              If its for middle aged women, it might be better to stay on safe side, esp if one has any medical conditions.

              General tips would be, drink alot of water, exercise regular (over 20mins), eat properly, 3 meals if possible, eat more during the morning and less at night, cut down on not needed food, like chips, less fried food, less sodas, drink water or orange juice instead, get into a good pattern of doing things.

              But id say consult gp still.

                      Asians eat way too much. Instead of eating a moderate amount till you are content, they'll eat till their stuffed and then take a nap. Thats how you get fat.

                      They need to cut down on their food intake. I mean I eat it and I'm fine but you need to eat the right amount. I tried advising but to no avail. They'll still pile the plates full of food and end up getting obese and diabetes. Its even worse back home where the rich are flippin obese and the poor are skeletal. I still never understood how people can eat that much food. Its .

                      Rant over.

                              Unless she has other health issues, she should be able to do the same kinds of sports or exercise programs anyone else can do. Walking is a good start, and maybe after she's gotten comfortable with that, she could work up to jogging. There are also plenty of team or groups sports that double as social events, if she likes that sort of thing. My mom used to take tennis lessons, partly because she enjoyed playing it, but also because she got to be friends with the other women in the group.
