Are you are looking forward to your summer holiday or are you dreading how you will look on the beach.
There is still time to lose weight before the main summer holidays and in 10 weeks you could eaily lose a stone and a half. That is a least one dress size/trouser size. So start eating healthily now and you can enjoy your summer holiday.
I know that the last minute panic to find clothes for holiday when you are overweight is probably one the most depressing times I ever had. It was a holiday photo that made me change my eating habits, lose weight and set up Weight Away so if you want to avoid those summer time blues I would love to help you at http://www.weight-away.org
I keep this photo of me emerging onto the beach in the Summer of 2009 just to remind me of how large I was and that I won’t allow myself to go back there.
Lots of people think I am brave to show this photo. I don’t because I am proud of losing weight and want to inpsire others to do the same through eating ordinary healthy food and not following fad diets.

Me in summer 2015 so much happier and healthier
Snacking can be your biggest downfall when you are trying to lose weight so knowing some that will not do too much damage can be helpful
If you eat three healthy well balanced meals you probably don’t need a snack but that doesn’t stop us wanting them and some times they can become a habit. After all we are all human. When losing weight I found quite a lot of easy snacks that I could build into my healthy eating plan that were all under 125 calories. In this way I knew if I did want a snack I could have one without too much damage.
Some of this list are less healthy but when you feel you need a chocolate fix or a glass of wine then it is better to have one than beat yourself up. If you want to know more about losing weight without giving up everything you like then contact me at http://www.weight-away.org. In the meantime here are some of my snacks
- 20 grams of popcorn
- 3 crackers with 1 slice of low fat cheese
- 20 grams of almonds
- 6 breadsticks
- A Curly Wurly
- A Mcvities Penguin Biscuit
- Alpen Fruit and Nut Bar
- Malteasers Fun Treat Size Bag (from a multi pack) or any other fun size bag.
- Glass of Wine up to 150mls
- ½ pint of Beer/Lager
- Bag of French Fries or any other crisp type snack up to 120 calories
- Pack of Melba Toasts and Triangle of Dairylea Cheese or Laughing Cow low fat cheese triangles
- Low Fat Yoghurt 125 mls
- Small scoop of soft ice cream
We have got bigger as a nation as we do less exercise and eat more processed food
In the press this week we were told that
Britain has the biggest weight problem of any European country, with two thirds of men and more than half of women classified as overweight or obese. Last week a study forecast that 38 per cent of Britons would be obese by 2025, making the country the fattest in the continent.
If you want to avoid being one of people in these statistics you may need help to avoid temptation. I say this because all around us there are adverts and offers for food that can result in us gaining weight. Knowing how to eat healthily whilst still having the occasional treat is the key to losing weight and keeping it off.
The answer will never be a quick fix of pills or replacement foods or crash diets because when you stop these and go back to how you were eating the weight will just pile back on. You can eat well with your family and friends by changing your approach to eating and just a few changes can make a lot of difference
- eating regular meals
- cutting out snacks
- having more vegetables
- walking whenever you can
- reducing the amount of sugar you eat
These are just a few things that can make a difference but if you want to know more visit http://www.weight-away.org for healthy eating plans, recipes and support.
Don’t become a statistic!
If you are overweight you increase your chances of being diagnosed with diabetes and did you know that there were 7000 amputations last year in the UK, that’s 135 legs cut off every week. Diabetes accounts for half of these.
These are the sort of facts that make you realise that being overweight is not only about how you look but also about how you are putting yourself at risk. Unfortunately the risks also include stroke, blindess, organ damage and a poor vascular system (this is what results in the amputations).
If you are overweight and want to do something about it you can change your lifestyle by eating heathily and losing weight steadily but more importantly be able to keep it off.
At http://www.weight-away.org I can help you to do this with personalised eating plans that allow you eat with your family and friends and still lose weight. No supplements, pills or replacement foods just ordinary food with extraordinary results.
