How to be a happy, healthy loser
Throw out your old ideas about losing weight, it’s time to set yourself up for success
How to win at weight loss (this time it’s for real)
Once upon a time, trying to lose weight was Bloody Hard Work. If you weren’t hungry all the time and hating life, you weren’t doing it right. Well, bye-bye to that malarky. Thanks to years (decades!) of firsthand research, we’ve finally twigged that the boiled cabbage and cardboard cracker approach is deeply flawed and uh, doesn’t work. Severely restricting calories, weighing and measuring every morsel and placing faith in the latest regimented celeb ‘cure’ only works for as long as you can stand the deprivation and the misery. That would be… not very long. Before you know it, any lost kilos (and a few of their freeloader buddies) are back again in all their unwanted glory.
How about a big ‘hell no’ to all that?
Whatever your reasons for wanting to shed weight – whether to improve critical health numbers, slay a sugar dragon or just look and feel better – longterm success only comes if you’re happy and wellfed along your journey.
A winning game plan
How you think and feel are as important as what you put in your mouth. Step 1 – don’t see this as a punishment for previous doughnuts downed. Choosing to become healthier is a reason to celebrate and with every healthful decision you make, you’re a step closer to your goal whether it’s 5kg or 50.
