Include your favourite foods

And your own set of rules 

You will learn about the importance of including the right nutrients.

Destination & Weight Management.



What happens when you reach your destination?

 I am a fan of “Boston LegaI,” a programme about a law firm in Boston that is full of irony and wit.

In one programme, there was a remark by Alan (for those who know him) when talking to Denny, (who was feeling down because his favourite football team had won the championship.)

Denny had been supporting this team for nearly all of his life, now suddenly the thrill of wanting this had been removed!

Alan said to him something along the terms that it was not the destination that was the thrill, but the journey getting there. You need another interest to give you a challenge.

Is that how it is with weight management?

And is that why many people find it difficult to maintain the weight once they reach their goal?

The diet, and the thrill and anticipation of the number dropping on the scales have been removed.

We gradually start to put on weight because deep down now that we have reached our goal, life in the day to day maintenance has become tedious.

We miss the thrill of someone saying “Haven’t you lost weight?”

Do you identify with this?

  I know I did when I was caught up in the diet trap!

So perhaps once you reach your goal, think of another challenge, rather than just controlling your weight.

Chances are once you relax and just eat what you know you can, you can put the weight issue on the back burner, simply keeping an eye on it, but not making it your main aim in life.

Life becomes something else rather than just what you eat!

Be aware, be watchful but don’t be obsessive.

That way you will eat to live, and not live to eat!

Self-Sabotage & Weight Management.



Untitled-1Have you ever wondered why it is that when you succeed at losing weight after a lot of effort, you just seem to lose control and put it back again?

One scenario, is the typical weigh-in at the slimming club.

Or you have just completed a successful week with a good loss, and you are patting yourself on the back.

Wey-hey you’ve done really well this week!

 Then; you go home and find yourself in the fridge or food cupboard eating all the things that you have not had the previous week.

There are two things in play here.  Reward or perhaps Self-Sabotage!

Let me tell you a true story.  There was an eight year old girl, who was really good at art. She won first prize in a contest in a Scripture class for the best cover of the exercise book.  The good feeling did not last, however, because she thought that actually she could do even better.

So what did she do next? She destroyed the cover and told the teacher that she had suffered an accident with it. Then proceeded to make another one. She thought that she could do it better and earn even more praise. But what she was actually doing was sabotaging her own efforts because deep down she could not recognise her own success.

That pattern continued with her for a very long time, and whatever she did in life, in her success, she ended up in someway sabotaging her own endeavors.  Business, relationships and a weight loss.

Particularly with weight loss.

She put on weight and she lost it in a yo-yo fashion for most of her lifetime. The scene above at the slimming club was played out over and over again.

Can you identify with this?

Maybe your own weight management struggles are more deep seated than you imagine.

Maybe some coaching or mentoring would help you to look at this. Or maybe you can look at it yourself.

It would certainly be good to consider whether you are self-sabotaging in anyway.

Obesity Among Young British Women.


http://www.amazon.com/dp/B011L100OC http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B011L100OC

Obesity among young British women is the worst in Europe.

A programme on British Television on 4th September 2014, investigated this phenomenon.

I am not going to be among those people who blame the women!

 They have had enough of that already.

The people that I would blame though are the ones who seem to be ignoring the truth!

We are constantly hearing the mantra Eat Less and Do More

If it was that simple, we would not now be in the midst of such a mess. 

There are now many studies, books and papers, showing that controlling your weight is not just about calorie counting and getting more exercise.

Do not get me wrong though.

Yes, it is healthy to be aware of your calorie intake, but not to be counting them and relying on this to control your weight.

Zoe Harcombe, Gary Taubes and John Briffa have researched this. So you can look this up for yourself.

Google it!

Also, it is healthy to keep active and to do certain exercises. But this will only tone you up and will not make you lose weight.

You have to walk a mile to burn 100 calories. Have you walked a mile lately?

Assuming that you are eating a healthy diet, then that would be the equivalent of an apple!          .

Imagine if you had a doughnut, which is laden with 400 calories, are you willing to walk 4 miles to burn that off?

And that is working under the assumption that the doughnut is the only thing you ate.

The surgeon being interviewed who was operating on these women, commented that surgery was the only answer.

Not true, my friends.

With a combination of;

  • Eating only real food, avoiding starchy, processed foods and anything with sugar in.
  • Looking at whether you could be intolerant to certain foods, or addicted to them.
  • Sorting out your beliefs and how you think

This could be the answer.

It is not easy, but it is certainly a better answer and it is a far better alternative to having your body cut up and taking away how nature designed our digestive system.

So sorry, but surgery is not the only answer.

If only the NHS and other Government bodies in other countries, would be more open to what we, the people who are working hard and have been there ourselves struggling with weight and food issues, have to say. Then we could all  move on.

But that’s politics for you!
