So the stats:
Person: My father
Weight: 305 lb (probably mostly fat, he’s had a few heart attacks already)
Dietary Limitations: Gluten Free and prefers not eating red meat, which is probably smart because his cholesterol and blood pressure are both terrible
Wakes up: 6:30 am
Sleeps: it fluctuates but for now lets say that I will nap 3 hrs straight and then I am up overnight
He claims that if I help him make up a diet and simple exercises he will do his best to stick with it. For exercise we’re talking stuff like walking. Whether or not he actually does it, I don’t know, but I’ve been trying to get him to be healthier his whole life and it seems he is finally willing to listen to some of my advice. Would it better to have him get a nutritionist and personal trainer? yes it probably would. But he won’t agree to that and probably wouldn’t listen to them anyways. He’s stubborn. He will listen to me.
If nothing else I’m looking for a good Protein-Carb-Fat Ratio for someone of his size to use when losing weight and how many calories to start with.
What type of exercise can he do that will be enough that he will lose weight but won’t give him a heart attack? Should he maybe wear a cardiac monitor watch and make sure his BPM stays below a certain point to prevent any accidents?
Thanks for any help,
