How to achieve and maintain your ideal weight and your ideal shape..

We all want to eat right and we want to be ‘just the right weight’.

We know that to be fit and healthy we have to exercise regularly and we have to eat the right foods - or, at least, not eat the wrong foods.

But, if you’re like most of us, it’s not always easy. Life seems to get busier and busier and we don’t always take the time that perhaps we should to eat right ...or to exercise enough.

And’s always so easy to make excuses!

Just as lifestyles have changed and quickened, - what a change I’ve seen in my lifetime! - so has the food we eat changed considerably. We simply no longer always have the time to prepare nutritious meals, relax and enjoy them. The fact is that our hectic, busy lifestyle often leaves us little choice but to turn to the nearest source of 'easy to prepare' processed food or 'takeaways'. Don't get me wrong, not all 'takeaways' are bad but usually they are 'not so good'.

The result? An improperly functioning body. This can mean symptoms of fatigue and loss of concentration, as well as the signs and symptoms of being overweight.

There are so many 'weight loss' programs and diet foods available now that it can be very confusing and expensive.

"If you have formed the habit of checking on every new diet that comes along, you will find that, mercifully, they all blur together leaving you with only one definite piece of information....

....french-fries are out!"

I’m sure lots of them do work for many people, but it really is all about eating right, exercising, drinking plenty of water and generally 'managing' your lifestyle.

No smoking (Don’t forget SMOKING is definitely a NO-NO if you want to be healthy).

Remember these four simple rules to eating right when dieting:

  • Eat foods in their natural state whenever possible
  • Eat foods that are comparatively difficult to digest
  • Eat foods that are high in fibre
  • Eat small amounts often rather than 1 or 2 big meals

Weigh In

Daily physical activity and a proper food plan should be major aspects of any good weight control system.

Achieving and maintaining healthy body composition with higher lean tissue mass is easier than you think. Start by eating low-glycaemic foods – the new standard for healthy eating.

Glycaemic indexing (GI) indicates how much a food will raise your blood sugar and insulin levels. Consuming high-glycaemic foods can result in increased appetite, mood swings and excess fat.
