1. Sugar, particularly fructose is the problem. Ultra-processed food is the problem In 2013 I first heard about excess carbs rather than Fat being the problem from Professor Robert Lustig. It was a chance radio interview and his You Tube post told me more. 2.Many people do not want you to change and may undermine you openly or covertly. There are many reasons for this. They like what they do, and your change of lifestyle and your new shape throws the focus on their eating and drinking. Which they like, and feel a bit guilty about, and do not want to change. Or maybe think they do not need to c ..read more

People like Treflyn Jones are the reason I do what I do. Obesity is so difficult to live with: to carry round all that excess weight and its consequences like arthritis, diabetes, and heart disease, and cancer. All that pain, all that limitation, and the background fear wears people down. There are many people in the media who give you snippets of hope for the future but this video will give you the tools to make a difference. Note how he does not do it perfectly every day. Note the tools he uses and the further resources on offer. Treflyn explains in only 20 minutes how he lost all his excess ..read more

Last week I had an email from Diane who used to be diabetic and is now in remission. She will have to maintain this way of life, and it sounds like she loves it. How lovely is that… and she is the one who did all the work and I just had to sit back and wait! I hear about these people every week now, and until 2014 I had not heard of any of them. It is in learning about the “low carb/healthy fat way of life”, along with methods of behavioural change that Diane and people like her learn how to turn their lives around. These are her words: Just wanted to send you this note of gratitude. I have j ..read more

When you adopt this way of life, one of the best things you can do is listen to your body. Be mindful and ask yourself- am I hungry or not? Can I wait a little while or even a few hours before I eat or drink? If you do this, you will reduce the hormone insulin and this has very healthful effects.It allows you to use up your fat stores. It makes you more mentally alert. You will also have more energy. One of the simplest ways to fast is to ask yourself if there is a meal you currently eat that you do not want. For instance, do you eat breakfast because you have heard it is the most important ..read more
