Throughout January I've noticed a few TV chefs opting for low carb dishes as a way of losing weight. If you can't face life without eating carbs, then why bother dieting that way? You will be more likely to succeed in your efforts eating food you normally eat. This blog contains a record of what we've eaten over the years - just to show you can eat real food while losing weight. We have also produced some really tasty recipes for you to try such as this tasty kebab:
We managed to lose weight eating everything - and that's all food groups together.
Faddy diets are just short term gimmicks and very difficult to sustain. Once you give up, you'll probably find yourself even more attracted to the foods you gave up! Our message is really that weight loss is possible eating the foods you naturally eat, but keeping an eye on where this fits into your daily calorie allowance.
Take a look at our weight loss story and you'll find out how we managed to incorporate our lifestyle into a weight loss programme that included joining in with festivities, holidays and celebrations. We've also managed to keep 7 stone in weight off - five years later. Friends and family have followed our simple set of rules, and lost weight too, so why not give it a try. If all else has failed, what have you got to lose? Except weight!
Be who you want to be.
Do you know how many calories you can eat each day?
