I’m trying to help my dad diet down some and want to have some good ideas to throw at him. Basically his problem is that he is a sap. My little sister basically gets whatever food she wants. Long story short, he has no self control unless he’s on a diet and will not make my sister eat his diet food so a mix of good and bad food will be in the house.
As long as shit food is out of the house, he will follow the rules. Therein lies the problem. I’m trying to find something that may make it easier to follow the rules when bad food is around.
As a note: He owns a small landscape bus. and works about 70hrs each week doing the real work.
In the past he had great success with atkins for a few years, but wont follow that w easier* food in the house (bread, pasta, etc)
He won’t get rid of the food since he has joint custody of my sis w a crazy baby mamma and doesn’t want to deal bs w that, and wants her to be “normal”.
I’ve gave him actual diets or slightly less strict atkins diets.
I’ve got 2 ideas so far. Since he’s a snacker and a 1-meal eater (no apatite when working) I was thinking to try some IF protocol without him eating the normal meal, make it lower carbs
See how the Anabolic diet works
Yes, I know he needs a reality check/self-control but he’s not focused on this too much, he has a business to run. He needs something easy, and he’s not obese or anything.
Any comments are appreciates. Thanks in advance!
