Happy Sunday! Just a healthy reminder that weight-loss begins at the grocery store. Think Organic next time you’re purchasing your food for the week. Choosing organic foods whenever possible is the nearest we can get to eating a pure diet.
Organic foods are free from highly toxic pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, antibiotics and artificial growth hormones. Naturally grown and ripened produce may also have a higher content of essential nutrients.
Note: Many supermarkets now stock a range of organic fruit and vegetables.
Happy Saturday! We all know that as soon as you start to lose weight, almost every person you know will try to tempt you with chocolates, cakes, sweets and pastas! It is important that you learn to say “no” politely but forcefully. Don’t let one weekend undo a whole week of healthy habits, keep going!
Happy hump day! Having confidence and positive mental health about your body is a great way to stay motivated. Silence your inner critic!
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!
Hooray for Saturday! Want to work in some incidental exercise today? Why not run your Saturday errands healthily! If you’re going on a weekend shopping spree, park far away from the entrance and build a few extra, calorie-burning steps into your day. If you’re visiting stores on different levels, ditch the escalator and take the stairs!
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!
