Why not make 2017 the year that you lose weight and keep it off.
If you have been ‘dieting’ for years only to keep putting weight back on then try a different way with
I know from personal experience that ‘diets’ don’t work. The real key is eating more healthily and moving a bit more so that you lose weight but don’t give up everything you enjoy. In that way you lose weight steadily but don’t put it back on.
This is the basis of the Weight Away plans where I help you to
eat healthy easy to cook meals that you can eat with your family and friends
understand portion sizes
understand what triggers you to overeat
still be able to have snacks without eating too much
get your metabolism working for you rather than against you
stop you from feeling hungry
and of course lose weight
The problem with ‘diets’ that promise you a quick weight loss is that often you will not be able to eat the same food as your family. You may be forced to buy expensive meal replacement food or shakes and you may lose weight really quickly only to put it all back on again.
I don’t think any of us really want to feel that our life revolves around a ‘diet’ that excludes us from eating normally with our family and friends. Or that adds more cost to the weekly budget.
So if you want try something different visit http://www.weight-away.org and contact me for a free consultation and you can also take advantage of my New Year offers to make 2017 the year that you lose weight for life.
If eating ordinary food but getting extraordinary results in 2017 is what you are looking for then you have nothing to lose by talking to me other than weight!
Yes Christmas is coming and I wondered if you are thinking that you wish you had lost weight this year. Perhaps promising yourself that in the New Year you really will go on the diet to shift your weight for good.
I know I have been there in previous years regretting that I was still overweight and couldn’t get into clothes I wanted to for the Xmas Party.
Well if this you and you want to make 2017 the year that you beat a weight issue then I would love to speak to you.
I am only writing a short blog this week as I have been away for a few days enjoying a city break. It was good that I did a lot of walking both sightseeing and shopping in the fabulous city of Oxford as well as attending an Alabama 3 gig which involved a lot of dancing. Hopefully that will have counteracted the alcohol!
Life doesn’t have to be dull when you are losing weight or keeping it off, everything is just a balance.
Some people think that exercising is the answer to weight loss. It can certainly help but on its own it is not likely to help you lose as much weight as you think.
Looking at some typical exercises did you know that
30 minutes of swimming averages 200 calories
30 minutes of fast walking averages 100 calories
30 minutes of running averages 300 calories
All this depends on your weight and the speed you do, but if you think of the typical calories in some of the snacks you might be having it becomes a very sobering thought. for example
Walkers Ready Salted Crisps are 171 calories
A Mars Bar 260 calories
A Signature Tall Hot Chocolate from Starbucks 393 calories
That doesn’t mean that exercise is a waste of time as it helps to keep you fit, stimulates your metabolism and of course tones you up. But you can easily undo all the good if you tuck into sugary snacks, drinks and crisps.
Personally I aim to walk at least 10,000 steps a day and add whatever else I can fit in such as swimming and a session at gym at least 3 times a week (not done so well with the swimming and gym recently because of my broken wrist but aiming to get back to it in the New Year now I am on the mend)
If you want to know more about eating healthily and exercising to lose weight I would love to hear from you.
If you like to have a drink of alcohol this is just fine as long as you don’t overdo it but I know it is so easy to be drinking lots of calories without even realising it.
Having a few tricks up your sleeve to help you can be useful and some of them are really obvious
have slimline mixers with gin or vodka
have soda with white wine to make it go further
try a 5:2 approach, 5 days alcohol free 2 days when you have a drink
Volunteer to drive friends and family to restaurants/pubs so you can say no
don’t drink on an empty stomach
avoid salty snacks such as nuts or you will want more to drink
But don’t feel you need to cut out alcohol altogether and when you have a drink enjoy it. I had 2 delicious glasses of Blackberry and Elderflower Pimms with Schweppes Slimline Lemonade while watching Andy Murray win Wimbledon last week and drank it guilt free!
with the fresh blackberries!
