How to lose weight when you have a sprained ankle?

I asked before and didn’t get any answers. Help please! I keep spraining my ankle which throws off my diet/excercise regiment and then I get off track and either gain weight or just stay the same, I stop losing. What can I do to lose weight while my ankle is recovering?

    you could lift weights i guess,

    If your ankles hurts really bad, its better if you just stay off it as much as you can,
    The sooner it recovers the Sooner you get back to your Work Outs.

    And while you are laid up with that, Just do not eat any junk food

    Hope you Feel better soon Hun, =)
    You must be feeling very stressed out =(

    Work around your injury. Obviously avoid the treadmill and aerobics and dance classes but there are a ton of other exercises you can safely do. Swimming, shadow boxing, row machine and maybe biking shouldn’t aggravate your ankle.

    I don’t get how a sprained ankle can throw off your diet. Stick to your diet. Studies have shown that diet is more important than exercise if you had to choose between the two. Try swimming and do core workouts focusing on your abs. A stability ball would be a great addition to your workout. Also you can still do weights with your arms. Mostly you have to stay focused on the goal.

    The best way to loose weight fast is by choosing the right foods.
    FOOD is more powerful than any prescription weight loss pills, because the FOOD that you eat can either make you THIN or FAT. You don’t get fat because of a lack of exercising, that’s a myth. You get fat because you don’t eat the right foods at the right intervals each day.

    To optimize metabolism, energy, and mental and emotional positivity, set a goal to eat five or six small meals per day — do NOT skip meals. Sometimes you will feel like you don’t have the time or the energy to put anything together, but this is critical to your success. Your body and your metabolism are designed to look for cues telling them when to burn and when to conserve. If you miss a meal your body does what it is programmed to do — stop burning. Ideally, the five meals include breakfast, mid-morning snack, lunch, mid-afternoon snack and dinner. On occasion, you may also enjoy a healthy and delicious fat-burning dessert after dinner. This five meal ideal will keep your metabolism burning brightly, and your brain will enjoy a steady source of fuel, keeping you mentally sharp and safe from those challenging blood sugar drops that spur cravings for sub-par food choices.
    So how much should you eat at each meal? Begin by keeping in mind that there is no one definition of a serving size. With both the Food Pyramid and Nutrition Facts labels, the serving size is simply a unit of measure and may not represent the amount you are really eating. For example, an English muffin represents two Food Pyramid servings of bread, despite the fact that the Nutrition Facts label on the package defines a serving as one muffin.

    Well. I always manage to stay trim while injured and my method is if you have a sprained ankle you:

    Definately lay off the cardio… but that doesn’t mean you can’t excersise and burn calories. You can still burn calories by doing various weight excercises (While sitting down if prefered) with dumbells etc. Or try different variations of crunches and core/abdominal excersises so that your ankle is in a comfortable position. Peform the excersises more with speed than weight as this will speed up your metabolic rate which means you burn fat.

    Or if your feeling a bit lazy you can:

    Stay to do the diet side and speed up your metabolic rate by just diet.
    Your diet should consist of 6 (small) meals a day. You should eat less carbohydrate because your body burns things in the order of:

    . Carbohydrate
    . Fat
    . Protein

    So eat more fat than carbs so you can get straight down to burning fat (Remember! eating fat prevents from storing it). But do not eat too much fat, and just the healthy fat, I’m not telling you to stuff your face with McDonalds. Eat foods such as

    Olive oil
    Slim meat

    and stay away from processed foods and saturated fat. Mono un-saturated fats and poly un-saturated fats are ok (check on the back of food packaging for fats)

    Try both methods if you want. I do.

    So this is all the info i can give as it helped me. One more thing……. Drink about 8 or more Large glasses of water a day. Drinking alot of water is the key.VERY IMPORTANT.

    I hope this helps
