We hope you enjoy our laid back approach to slimming and weight loss.
We are very serious about the subject but we feel that all too often the reality of slimming is ‘ordeal and punishment’. People are coerced into diets that are doomed to failure because they cause stress, deprivation and discomfort, which undermines our desire to succeed.
For most of us, being over weight, fat or obese is a symptom of other life problems and health issues. But if you attack the symptom without dealing with the causes of the problems, then the symptom will almost always return. You have to find out and accept why you find it so difficult to lose weight, this may be emotionally difficult and require professional therapist help.
It is very easy to get stuck in the diet tread mill. There are a lot of companies making a lot of money out of diets and diet products. Most have little desire to lose their income if everyone becomes permanently slim. The adverts are compelling, make you feel guilty, medical doom merchants fill you with horror, and finally the clever marketing sells you the ‘dream’ of a perfect body.
Reality Check Now!
If you want to lose weight and keep that weight off you need to build on foundations that make dieting and exercise effective. You need to understand the emotional issues that influence why you get fat. You need to know what changes need to be made and you must want to make those changes.
We are here to help you. But remember, you are unique, so your life changes are unlikely to be the same as your best friend’s life changes.
"To continue doing the same things expecting different results is insanity!"
So ask yourself:
‘What are you willing to change, or do differently, to release the slimmer, happier and more relaxed you?’
“Food is like sex: when you abstain, even the worst stuff begins to look good.”
