We don’t often watch these slimming/diet programmes on TV, however one called Super Slimmer’s on Channel 4 recently, caught our attention. The basic premise was about a doctor who followed up past Slimmer’s of the Year from Weight Watcher’s, Rosemary Conley, Lighter Life and Slimming World to see where they were at now.
It was incredibly sad to see what had happened to the vast majority of them, people who had gone from 30 stone to 1 2stone in one case or had lost over 10 stone in their journey to a ‘new you.’ 90% of them had put their weight back on and then some more. One girl’s weight was increasing at 3lbs per week! Another guy had a BMR of 500 calories a day, so if he ate more than that his weight would increase. They had all destroyed their metabolism by not protecting their lean muscle mass.
Fortunately, all of the above is not what we promote at SSWC. How have ‘diets’ worked for you, has the weight stayed off. Have you any stories/tips you want to share?
