This weight loss stuff.
I’ll be honest with you.
It’s not easy
Just as Fit For Life Body Transformation members will tell you
You have to learn to enjoy the ‘Rocky Road’
Embrace the struggles when you just want to get those scales and smash them to tiny, little pieces
But enjoy the many WINs
^^^ Where you throw away your baggy clothes and get comments from the hubby about the muscles on the back of your arms AKA bingo wings
As members on Female Fat Loss Mastery will soon find out (we start today in Marlborough which I’m super excited about)
And speaking of the Rocky Road ahead for us all
I’ve got a ‘no bake’ Rocky Road recipe for you.
Which is a bit of treat, if I’m honest.
I use it myself along with many members on my body transformation programmes to:
* Satisfy your sweet tooth
* Impress guests
* Give you a little boost before your exercise (an easy go-to snack for when you don’t want anything too heavy…which is probably when you’d opt for the Milk choc buttons…)
Ingredients (makes 12 squares):
* 70 g coconut oil
* 30 g butter
* 60 g chocolate whey protein
* 25 g marshmallows (yes, I did say marshmallows)
* 30 g honey (yes, honey is SUGAR despite what Davina McCall says…)
* 40 g cocoa powder
* 40 g dried goji berries (or similar dried fruit)
* 28 g almonds or hazelnuts (chopped or crushed)
* Melt the coconut oil and butter in a bowl over a low heat.
* Add the whey, cocoa and honey and mix together – I dare you not to lick the spoon (it will look like melted chocolate, only nicer…)
*Throw in all the additions (goji berries, marshmallows, nuts).
* Pour mixture into a pan or plate and DIVIDE INTO 12 SQUARES then freeze for about 1 hour.
* Store in the fridge (but does also keep well if on-the-go…unless you’re off somewhere hot like Swindon) and enjoy when you need a naughty (but healthIER) treat.
Nutrition (Per square):
5 g protein
Which provides FEWER calories than ONE serving of ‘healthy’ seeds from the ‘healthy’ counter in Aldi
And I’m not knocking seeds, at all.
But as a member in the VIP seminar I did last week on ‘what to eat before exercise’ said:
‘”I’d be more likely to overeat on the seeds because you feel like they’re healthy and innocent”
Let’s say you on this topic?
Would the Rocky Road trigger you to want to eat more?
Do you find yourself overeating on foods perceived as ‘healthy’, like cereal?

PS. Foil these up in portions to AVOID the tendency to eat them all in one go
And remember…YOU are in control of your hands.
