Beware the Alcohol Fake Weight Loss

Glass of champagne

Don’t be fooled, over time the scales will disappoint

Alcohol and diets don’t mix well.

The calories in alcohol are ‘empty’ – that means they don’t contribute to helping you feel full.  Also, after a drink or two, you may start to lose your willpower – ‘What the hell’, you may think, as you reach for the peanuts or order a pizza.

But there is a paradox: if you do drink the night before the scales may pleasantly surprise the following morning.  Even if you’ve consumed way too many calories yesterday, the scales may actually show a weight loss.  For instance, it isn’t unusual to ‘lose’ 2 or 3 pounds in weight the morning after consuming say, a bottle or wine, or a few large whiskies the night before.

Exercise – the diet meta-activity

Football

You can’t do it without exercise!

If you want to diet successfully you simply must exercise.  Regular exercise must be an integral part of any lasting weight loss.  You can’t do it without exercise!

Calories!

The most obvious way exercise helps you lose weight is the calories it burns.  A half hour jog for example burns between 200-400 calories, depending on your size and level of activity.  These burned calories add up over time.

If you were to burn 350 calories in exercise for 5 days a week that would add up to 1750 calories in a week – that’s around 1/2 a pound of fat.  This may not sound much, but added up over time would equate to nearly 2 stone in a year. Read the rest of this entry »

Food record close up

Writing down what you eat is an easy win

Resisting Temptation – does ‘Sod it’ really mean ‘Sod you’?

Assortment of Christmas cakes

Oh go on…sod it! Or sod you?

It was Oscar Wilde who famously said

I can resist everything except temptation

but as we approach the peak dieting season this sentiment is hardly helpful.  Oscar Wilde was playfully recognising his human weakness, and indulging it even before trying to overcome his temptations.

Now that Christmas Day is over, soon many of us will be turning our minds to tackling the weight we may have gained over the festive season. Read the rest of this entry »
