Science has proved that dieting doesn't work - with only a small proportion of dieters managing to maintain 10% weight loss at a year. Most dieters say that they ditched the diet when their willpower 'ran out' and they just couldn't keep it up anymore

10 Myths of Health

Clark Russell

Many nutrition myths get repeated endlessly, to the point where they become accepted as doctrine e.g. the UK government's Eatwell Plate, which is outdated dogma; the advice follows the low fat/high starchy carb dietary guidelines, which is actually a recipe for weight gain and sub optimal health.

When Mind Does Matter

If a client comes to me and says he or she want to lose weight, what if that client is already a healthy weight? What if their intended weight loss will make them underweight? Do I help them? Do I take the job? I always talk to people about their motivations but when it comes to weight most people are irrationally attached to social ideals of acceptability

Does NEAT (Non Exercise Energy Thermogenesis) Increase Weight Loss?

Sometimes there just aren't enough hours in the day. Most of us have good intentions when it comes to working out but, with family life, work and social schedules, it can make it difficult to do the recommended 3 hours of weekly exercise. That's where NEAT can help.

Jogging Is Not a Great Fat Loss Tool

Despite a growing understanding of the benefits of resistance training and high intensity interval training, the nation's go-to fat loss tool still seems to be going out for a jog. Every January we hit the pavements (literally.... again and again and again) with the best intentions. Unfortunately, it turns out jogging is in fact a very flawed fat loss tool.

Ill-disciplined, lazy, greedy, irrational in their behaviour, and guilty of putting healthcare services under increasing pressure. The problem with the above judgements is that they overlook subjective experiences and the complexities of our relationship with food and our self-image.

Eating Your Way to the Last Five Minutes

Dr. Bernadette Rock

While food was my way of disconnecting from reality, of checking out when I was bored, anxious, now I am awake. I try to remain mindful of what and when I am eating. Otherwise I can fall back into habits of unconscious eating, such as eating when you're finished with your meal and you continue to pick at it, slowly eating the remaining portion that you intended to leave behind.

The key is in exposing upper abs only which involves wearing your cropped top with high waisted jeans or trousers, either that or flashing a sliver of stomach a la Gwyneth Paltrow who at 40 has crushed the idea that only teenagers can wear this trend. (Thanks Gywn)

Why Losing Weight's Like Running the Marathon in Your Head

Motivation is about a whole lot more than desire, willingness or enthusiasm. It comes from deep within the most powerful recesses of the mind and is at the root of much of what we do - or don't do - in our lives.

Freelee the Banana Girl's Diet and Why Fad Diets Never Work (By a Fad Diet Obsessive)

Why do we all still get sucked in? Obviously, it's the idea of a quick-fix - the easy win. Except fad diets are never easy, quick or happy-making. They're angst-ridden, nerve-shattering and daily lessons in dealing with your own lack of self control.

Hypnotherapists to Become Tougher on Fat Clients

Steve Miller | Posted 16.06.2014 | UK Lifestyle
Steve Miller

It is my view that the days of tea and tissues in the therapy room have to go when it comes to helping a fat client lose weight. The vast majority of clients are fat because they have fallen into lazy ways, developed bad habits, and become addicted to food. It is for this reason that a client needs a firm hand.

Two and Five for the 5:2

Now that we're all supposed to be eating 10 portions of fruit and veg a day, it does make me wonder when exactly we're supposed to fit it all in. A quick bowl of sugar snaps before breakfast? A handful of kale with a mid-morning coffee? I think the Australian approach may be a better way to approach the inarguable need to inject fresher, more nutritious food into our lives: Down Under, they promote a 'two and five' slogan - that's two portions of fruit and five of veg a day. Think of it as an upgrade on the UK's five-a-day and it doesn't seem quite such a food mountain to climb.

Young People Want to Wear a Vegetarian 'Label' but Aren't Interested in an Education in Nutrition

We all take our joints for granted until or unless we have arthritis and by then unfortunately we are constantly aware of them because of the almost intolerable pain whenever we do anything. This is occurring at younger and younger ages in casual vegetarians because of a lack of quality protein amongst other things.

The bottom line is to get back to basics and don't be fooled by gimmicks or fad diets trying to sway you to follow a new trend. Explore your roots and the food culture that has been handed down from generation to generation. If it was good enough for grandma, chances are it's good for you too.

Let's be honest here; fat people are eating their own grave so to wrap it all up in cotton wool is just wrong. We should actually be applauding those doctors willing to use the 'F' word as it is much more likely to shock their patients into taking action.
