Getting to the Perfect Body

As I was trying to keep up with the conveyor belt at the gym this evening a flash of nutritional inspiration occurred to me. Now, I am not aware of anyone else noticing this so just remember you read it here first!

Patrick Holford, Gillian McKeith and that guy-whose-name-I-have-forgotten with the juicing book all promise that you can lose weight quickly but ONLY if you do what they say. Now I am wondering how many of you have ascended the scales only to discover you have put on 2kg over the last ten days? I would guess not many of you. For most of us we eat a little bit more sugar and fat than we should which leads to us increasing our weight over a period of several months. So why is it that so many of us expect to lose weight in, say, seven days?

If you have put on weight over the last six months why not take six months to get rid of it? That is what I am trying to do. I have lost about 3kg over the last two months and am hoping to get rid of another 3kg over the next three months. Gently does it. What is more there is scant evidence that detox or crash diets actually work.

Perhaps, dear readers, when I have finished I’ll post one of those do-you-want-a-body-like-mine pictures on to the blog?

    I am still looking for an opportunity to gather bucket, spade and sunscreen to nip off to the seaside for a few days. I am planning to eat at least two cream teas and some ice-cream.

    Miserably, for all the unhappiness that it causes so many people, there is scant evidence that any weight-loss regime works better than any other, aside from healthy eating and a reasonable workout schedule.

    I hope that your re-entry into your post-holiday world goes well.
