Take it from me, after many years experience, there is absolutely no magical way to lose weight and keep it off, other than making a healthy lifestyle a natural part of your life.
There are lots of products, gimmicks and trickery around to rob you of your hard-earned cash with promises to help you lose weight. Well, surprise surprise! None of them work. Maybe for a minute, but not for the rest of your life. And after all, that’s what we all want: a healthy life, free from illness, for a long time.
It’s really quite simple: eat real unprocessed foods, do some exercise and change your attitude. I know you’ve heard that before, but that’s what works, for life.
As you know from the Weigh It Up program, we advocate cooking your own meals. That way you know exactly what’s in them from a nutritionally balanced perspective: with minimal fat and sugar, within the calorie range, and free of artificial colours, flavours and preservatives. At the same time you are educating your children/family in how to shop, prepare and cook simple, tasty and healthy food.
However, we all know some days just don’t run according to plan and we can find ourselves at the end of a long day considering ordering a pizza or eating cheese on toast and sabotaging all our healthy eating. And for those who lead extremely busy lifestyles and can justify the cost, we have often received queries from you, wondering if we might ever be able to provide ready-to-eat meals.
Great news for you! We've partnered with Dietlicious who deliver healthy, low fat, tasty REAL food, straight to your door. We've selected a range of meals that all meet within our Weigh It Up guidelines that you can pop in your freezer at home or work for those days you just can’t quite get it together. We definitely all have those from time to time. The best thing of all? We love their food because there are no fillers, preservatives, or strange ingredients, so we have no hesitation in recommending it. Some of my favourites include Ocean Trout with Olive & Sundried Tomato Crust, Slow Cooked Lamb, Apricot & Prune Tagine and Piri Piri Chicken. You can’t go wrong ordering extra vegetable portions too, they’re great to toss with a tin of tuna for a quick lunch.
So don’t waste your money on gimmicks and gadgets to lose weight with the money you’ve saved from cooking all your meals from scratch using GST free ingredients. Invest in a few yummy meals from Dietlicious for all those unexpected emergencies.
