From trial and error and experience in coaching other women in my business, five things that I learnt over the years to put in place as my foundations for successful permanent weight loss (and maintenance) are as follows.
Thin seduces so many of us with the promise of a beautiful new life. We daydream about how fabulous we will be when we lose weight. The dresses we will wear. The parties we will go to. The appreciative glances we will solicit whenever we enter a room. Oh to be thin. Life would be perfect. Wouldn't it?
Diet mustn't be something you should look at as something you're "on" or "off", but a way of life. We must learn to eat all over again, in a way that won't negatively affect our health and our waistlines! It is our behaviour towards eating that needs to change.

Weight loss is a battle of the mind for many. Restricted diets often fail because the mind struggles to take back control over food long term. It is only when your mindset and motivation are in the right place that weight loss becomes more sustainable.
In the most basic of terms, a juice detox is where you only consume fruit and vegetable juice that has been freshly extracted.

How you look is wrapped up with so many other notions and conceptions of yourself and virtually everybody has had concerns about their weight and what other people think about them.
Do you wish you had their genes? Or their fast metabolism? Although genes do impact body shape and some aspects of weight, when a woman over 40 is able to "eat what they want" and still stay slim, it's most heavily influenced by behaviour.
Fat loss is definitely the most coveted goal in the fitness industry. Every day millions of people all over the world will start a new training program or diet plan in the hope of leaning up and reducing their waist size a few inches.
A bit of a statement to be sure but I for one am beginning to wonder this very thing. I am sick and tired of picking up the newspapers only to see a negative spin on a morbidly obese individual.
Let's face it, when it comes to weight-loss we're always on the lookout for the latest food group to celebrate or villainise. We've been through almost every food group, labelling each one as either a health saviour, or evil villain...
