Happy Monday! With today being the first day of Spring, now is a great time to get serious about achieving your weight loss goals. The work you do now will pay off when the temperatures rise – along with the hemlines and short sleeves!
Remember, self-evaluate often with respect to your goals — praise achievements & identify your weak points.
Just a healthy reminder to plan your meals ahead of time and always stick to the choice you have made. Take a list when you go supermarket shopping and only buy according to what is on your list. Do not buy cakes, treats, biscuits and chips ‘for the kids’. They do not need them and neither do you!
We hope your Saturday itinerary is jam-packed with fun activities and exciting events. Just a healthy reminder though: your water bottle is as important as your phone — never, ever leave home without it!
Truth: Several decades ago, the entire population was advised to eat a low-fat, high-carb diet. At the time, not a single study had demonstrated that this diet could actually prevent disease. Since then, many high quality studies have been done, including the Women’s Health Initiative, which is the largest nutrition study in history.
This diet does not cause weight loss, prevent cancer OR reduce the risk of heart disease. Numerous studies have been done on the low-fat, high-carb diet. It has virtually no effect on body weight or disease risk over the long term.
Entertaining guests this weekend? Here is a great idea for serving fruit! Simply scoop out a halved watermelon, and then use it as a bowl to hold other fruit you like.
The watermelon adds an element of creativity and an extra splash of colour to brighten up your display. Plus, less washing up for later!
Note: not all of our entertainer tips and suggestions are suitable for your individual SureSlim program. Always refer to your food selection list first.
Remember: if people around you try to undermine your goals, it’s their issue, not yours. Refuse to engage them on the topic so you can remain single-minded about achieving your goal!
