How many diets have you tried?

At this time of year there are so many ‘diets’s being promoted in the press; on the TV and across Social Media, it is no wonder that we can all be tempted by the ‘miracle cure’ that looks promising and we think we could do!

If something looks too good to to be true then there is a reason.

It is true to say that any ‘diet’ when you follow it to the letter, will result in you losing weight; the real test is whether you will be able to keep it off.

Many of these ‘diets’ mean you will be either replacing foods with shakes or bars or restricting certain foods such as carbs,  fats, or sugar.

The problem with this type of approach, is that it is really difficult to lead a normal life. In fact you can find yourself spending an enormous amount on food replacements or ready prepared meals and supplements.

Whilst this might be great if you have a small amount of weight to lose and don’t mind changing your lifestyle completely for a short time, it is not the recipe for sustained weight loss.

I know, I have followed in the past things like the Atkins Diet; the Cabbage Soup Diet; the Grapefruit Diet to name but a few.  I know now I could choose the Military Diet; the Peanut Butter Diet; the Oil Diet – just some I have seen in the last few weeks, but I know from experience the only way to lose weight successfully is to change your eating habits for life.

This does not mean anything other than eating a well balanced healthy diet that avoids processed food but enables you to have things you love in sensible portion sizes.

So if you would prefer to eat meals like this
