Lose a stone in a week!

Drop a dress size in 3 days!

If you read a diet/ exercise plan promising the earth, it's probably false.

If you think 'that can't be true' you're probably right.

Despite my logical mind, I still want to believe in the miracle cure. I blame Cinderella - an overnight transformation. Ugly duckling to swan. 

TV shows reinforce this myth - THE BIG REVEAL. The shocking BEFORE & AFTER pictures. 

We did it on Celebrity Fit Club. They had me shrinking in a matter of seconds for the visual - a process that had taken months in reality.

Believe me, if there was a magic pill to get rid of unwanted fat/ cellulite/build muscle/ target specific areas, do you not think I'd be taking it?

Instagram photos of impossibly buff bodies are just that - impossible. Good angles/ lighting/ posture can change an image in seconds.

Celebrities lie about implants, fat transfer, nips and tucks. They set up false ideals.

You may lose weight on a crash, fad diet, but you'll lose muscle as well as fat. And as soon as you go back to eating the way you did before the diet, you'll put it all back on. And usually more.

So, a reminder - the truth is:

* You can't spot reduce fat. if you lose weight, you lose it all over, although you may notice it more in different areas.

* If your genetic make-up is Kate Moss skinny, you will NEVER  look like Kim Kardashian. The only way you will get a Kardashian bum is to buy one. Sorry.

* Fashions change. A trendy body this week may not be in fashion next year. So don't do anything drastic and irreparable, like surgery.

* Take outrageous claims with a pinch of (Himalayan) salt.

TERROR TIME!

AUTUMN FOOD SHAME

wl6nftnbyhjnsbhtj7rd.png

As the weather gets colder and the nights draw in, I’ve seen a spate of ‘change of season’ coughs and colds in classes. There’s a general tiredness too.

         In my case this makes me want to eat my own bodyweight in chocolate products, dive under a duvet, and not re-emerge until Spring.

         The clocks have gone back – a signal for hibernation if ever there was one. Yet this is a time of new terms, more stress at work, back to school traffic and long waits at chilly bus stops and stations.

         It’s also a time when we’re bombarded with images, adverts and promotions for sweet Christmas ‘treats’ - giant tins of Quality Street and mince pies are already in the Crouch End Co-op!

         Few people like to snack on salads at a time like this. Hell – there are killer clowns out there!

         But we can avoid food shame by being aware that this behaviour is natural and moving on. Eat a slice of cake – don’t beat yourself up about it and finish off the rest to dispose of the evidence.

          Seasonal Food Tips

 ·      Come to the gym to warm & cheer yourself up.

·      Make soups.

·      Fill up on squashes, marrows, pumpkins – all complex carbs, full of fibre and vitamins. Make Halloween decorations with the skins.

·      Invest in woolly socks.

·      Binge on Strictly Come Dancing/ X Factor – just cut out the drinks and nibbles.
