The following advice is common sense but consulting a doctor about a weight reduction programme is the best advice.

Diet has the word ‘die’ in it.  You don’t need to do that.  You don’t have to ‘diet’ to lose weight.  Fad diets don’t work in the long term.

If you feel overweight, losing weight is a joy.  For most of us overeating and drinking alcohol leads to weight gain over the year.  If Calories consumed exceeds Calories burned you’re going to gain body weight.

How does one lose weight without dieting?

  • Avoid snacks between meals.
  • Eat slowly.  Our brain takes time to register it is full.  If you eat quickly you will be full before your brain tells you you are full and you may continue eating.
  • Eat to stop the hunger.  Don’t eat to bursting.
  • Give yourself one good portion but don’t go for seconds.  Remember your brain hasn’t had the signal to tell you are you already full.
  • If you feel hungry between meals drink some water.  Dehydration can make you feel hungry.
  • When we are tired we tend to over eat.  Our body tells us we need energy.  Instead of eating, drink some water and get some rest.

The American Heart Association states that humans need only 100 grams of animal protein in a meal.  As a meat eater most of us eat more than this.  It is not necessary for good health and may lead to bad health.

Guernsey is a beautiful island to enjoy the pleasure of walking and bicycling.  You don’t need the discipline of a gym to get enough exercise everyday.  Go for a walk or a bicycle ride with a friend or walk or cycle to work.

If you eat well but modestly and don’t drink too much alcohol your body will lose weight naturally.  Over-eating and drinking too much is simply unsustainable.
