I once weighed 100 kilos and was getting fatter with every fad diet I tried. When I received that swimsuit photo in the mail, I knew something had to change.
barbecue season

Warm days and nights mean it’s barbecue season. But before you get cooking, there are a few things you should do to prepare.

healthy christmas party

Traditional party food is often high in fat and adding alcohol to the mix can spell disaster for a slimmer. But celebrating in style doesn’t have to break the calorie bank. It is possible to plan a healthy Christmas party and no one will notice the difference!

dealing with demotivation

I frequently hear is that it’s so hard to stay motivated. Perhaps the real issue is demotivation which, when left unchecked, can sabotage your healthy living plan.

El Dorado Salad book 7

Who said salad is boring? This delicious salad is sure to be a crowd-pleaser at your next gathering, enjoy on its own as a vegetarian meal or serve with lean, grilled meat.

Symple Brownies book 7

At last a guilt-free brownie that’s gluten free, low in fat and high on taste. Suitable to freeze in individual portions, if it lasts that long.

Tropical Christmas Cake

This tropical Christmas Cake is best eaten fresh. If cooking ahead for Christmas, freeze until a few hours before required then defrost at room temperature.

Tuesday’s thought… Have you thought about how you’re going to approach your weight loss and health over the next few weeks. Here are your 3 choices:
1) Keep on target and plan to lose weight over Christmas
2) Plan to maintain your weight over the next few weeks
3) Give up, it's too hard and you can't be bothered

Picking number 3 may seem the easy option for now but I guarantee you will regret it in January. So make the commitment now and tell me which you choose. Is it 1, 2 or 3? Annette 😊

Monday’s thought… Are you worried how you will manage your weight with all the events leading into Christmas? It can be a stressful time for slimmers so here are my 5 top tips:
1) Set realistic goals for the next few weeks. Will you plan to maintain your weight, lose weight or gain weight?
2) BYO food to events. If you have something 'safe' to eat, then it will make parties easier.
3) Increase your activity levels. This will help compensate if you do overindulge.
4) Eat in moderation. Having a little of the Christmas treats is okay but having a lot means weight gain.
5) Maintain a positive attitude. Food is only a small part of Christmas.

Rounding out the week on the topic of hunger. Here's my 3 tips to avoid hunger over the weekend:
1. Have breakfast - make sure it includes protein and fibre to keep you feeling fuller for longer
2. Stay hydrated - remember thirst can be mistaken for hunger
3. Load up on extra veggies and salad - your body will thank you for the extra nutrients and will feel fuller due to the added fibre.

Have a great weekend. Annette :-)

Thursday’s thought… Don’t use food as comfort or a solution to your problems. It's better to face the problem than try to smother or numb it with food. This will only cause you to feel guilty and unhappy in the end. Annette 😊 ... See MoreSee Less

Wednesday’s thought… You don’t have to eat sparingly to lose weight? I actually believe we need to “eat” to lose weight. Not eating enough can jeopardise your weight loss so make sure you have at least 27-33g fat a day and 1250 calories (women) 33-40g fat and 1500 calories (men). Any lower and your metabolism may slow and stop you from losing weight. Annette 😊 ... See MoreSee Less

This week in my afternoon posts I'm talking about hunger. Knowing the difference between physical and emotional hunger could be a game-changer for you. When I was trying to lose weight, emotional eating was a real issue for me. Take a look at the graphic below to see if your hunger is generally physical or emotional. If you relate more to the emotional side, you might want to take a look at my emotional eating tips.
