Super Slimmers

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?

    I went down 3/4 dress sizes on weightwatchers about 10 years ago. Most of it’s stayed off, but I have a relatively healthy lifestyle and you’re absolutely right about that muscle mass. I got way too skinny on the diet, with no strength or stamina and could only eat a tiny amount of calories. I’ll never get back to the size I was, but to be honest, I don’t really want to! And don’t even get me started on all these ‘low fat/low cal’ products they all promote! Keep up the good work at SSWC guys! 🙂

      Nice story there, well done but you touched on another story there. That is what the food companies are doing with salt, fat and sugar to keep consumers addicted to their products, and by default, their profits high!
