Did you see the documentary ‘how to lose weight well’ which was on Channel 4 last week?
Basically, they showed how someone lost 2 stone in 6 weeks eating nothing but Greggs…
With someone else losing 12lbs in a week eating up to 5lbs of potatoes a day…boiled, mashed or baked for breakfast, lunch and dinner…
They also had some other diets which claimed to be really scientific and talk about DNA and metabolism…
Only just to give you a piece of salmon and vegetables
^^^ of course you’ll lose some fat if you swap a standard UK diet for salmon and vegetables ….
But you know what all of these diets have in common?
They all lowered the calories someone was eating.
They didn’t have any magic fat burning ingredients, herbs or shakes…
The PRINCIPLE behind all of these diets was to lower your calories.
And that is actually how EVERY diet works
The reason they don’t tell you this?
They’re scared you’ll go alone
That you won’t need their points system …
So they just ignore the principle…
And – of course – things like Slimming World and Weight Watchers WORK for some people
But if you don’t know why or how?
It can become frustrating when things slow down…
if you struggle with comfort eating…
A negative relationship with food.
Now, I’m not saying you have to count calories.
In fact, even if you just write down what you’re going to eat for the week
Have a shopping list
and just be aware that CALORIES are king …
You’ll probably become more self aware and lower your calories.
But there is more to this…
About making everyday tasks, like shopping and climbing stairs, so they can be out of breath
Feeling better about yourself
Fitting back into clothes
Being an example for kids and grandkids and wanting to be around for them
Fitting everything in to a busy lifestyle.
And this is where knowing that things you hear out there like:
No carbs after 6pm
Are JUST tactics to help you lower your calories
You can create YOUR diet.
Pick the best from every ‘diet’ out there and fit it to your lifestyle 🙂
