So its officially 2014 and most of us ladies kick start our year with the new years resolution that we're going to diet. Sadly there are statistics that show those who start their diets on the 1st of January fail however if you start on the 14th / 15th of January you are more likely to succeed with your weight loss plan. I have always been battling with my weight and I have tried every diet that I have read about in magazines. No carbs, maple syrup, soup only... yeah I lost weight quickly but it all comes back on as quickly as I lost it! I'm now just choosing to eat what I want but watching my portion sizes and snacks. I am a big snack lover! I cannot say no to a pack of crisps lol So here are some tips that I have learnt along the way which I have found to be really good when dieting: You must have breakfast whether its just a piece of fruit. Breakfast really is the most important meal of the day so if you want a fry up have it for breakfast and be really good throughout the day; If you're hungry drink some water.
Water fills you up and it's good for you bonus. Alex Curran swears by taking a Sea Kelp supplement to stop her cravings during the day. You take 1 tablet before a meal and its meant to help you feel full quickly too. I take them and I think they work well. Nip+Fab do amazing creams for different target areas. I love the Tummy Fix and the Cellulite Fix creams. They help to tone the skin which is a lot easier than an hour down the gym; Green tea. I have always loved green tea and its great cleanser for your body. One cup in the morning will help to boost your metabolism and act as an antioxidant. Sniff vanilla. Smelling vanilla is proven to suppress your appetite so keep a tissue with vanilla drops in your handbag at all times; Eat apples. They will fill you up and they practically have no calories as your body works hard to digest the apple skin making it a free snack; Scrub scrub scrub. When you use a body scrub you are helping the blood circulation in your body so the more you scrub the healthier your skin looks and fatty tissues becomes less visible. Here are some useful websites:
