Fast track to a slimmer you in 2013
With a new year just around the corner, there’s no time like the present to make some real life changes and fast track your way to a slimmer and healthier you.
There’s no need to go crazy when it comes to losing weight, in fact, quite the contrary.
Indeed, going on a crash diet will not help you lose weight in the long term, you will simply put the weight back on when the diet ends.
"The key to losing weight at any time is having a positive mental approach. Rather than thinking of going on a diet - which is a temporary thing and invariably carries impressions of deprivation and battles of will - think about making real changes to your lifestyle, which will bring about better health and more energy, as well as weight loss,” Ann Finnemore, hypnotherapist and life coach advised.
There are a few life style changes that you can make for 2013 for a slimmer you.
Cut the sugar
Lots of sugar can seriously add to a weight gain.
Charlotte Watts, a nutritional therapist, explains the science behind a sugar-induced weight loss.
“Sudden excess sugar hitting our bloodstreams means we need to produce high levels of insulin in response,” she said.
"As insulin tends to make us store fat rather than burn it as energy, this can create overweight tendencies.”
Don’t eat after 8pm
Everyone knows that eating late at night helps you to put on weight, so to avoid eating late some tips are: brushing your teeth early so that food won’t taste as nice, drink herbal tea to occupy your mouth and hands, as well as changing your dinner routine to ensure that you eat at an earlier time.
If you work late hours, make sure that you have a healthy meal prepared that you can just whack in the oven when you get home.
Alcohol is full of calories – a small glass of Bailey’s has over 300 calories!
There’s no time like post-Christmas to decide to cut down on the alcohol. Not only will this help you lose weight, you’ll probably have a much clearer head on a Saturday morning.

- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) Carrot Oil contains Beta Carotene and Vitamin A which, by eliminating toxic build-up and repairing sun-damaged skin, helps to improve skin complexion. Antiseptic properties also assist in reducing breakouts and the formation of acne. It is also great for hydrating the skin. So mixing it with Jojoba oil may help. I would also recommend mixing Jojoba oil and Tamanu oil as both have great moisturising properties and are great for acne prone skin. Hope this helps!
- Carrot Oil for Face I have acne. I have been using jojoba oil only but I noticed my face is sometimes dry. If I add carrot oil will it help moisturize my face and clear the spots or should I join argan oil to the mix?
- Ashwagandha Dosage for AnxietyI found a supplement that is 500 mg, 120 Count. Do you recommend taking 1 capsule daily? or 2 capsules? I also take thyroid medication and an SSRI among other things.
- The amazing Ashwagandha benefits for womenHello Dia, Thank you for your comment. Research is confusing when it comes to testosterone levels with PCOS and using Ashwagandha. As it is an adaptogenic herb, it will 'adapt' to the environment of the body to support hormonal balance. A huge therapeutic benefit of Ashwagandha is its ability to balance cortisol levels, which could improve stress and symptoms of PCOS also. If you are currently using any medications or under medical supervision, please seek advice from your practitioner to ensure there are no interactions. I hope this helps :)

- The amazing Ashwagandha benefits for womenHi Simie, thank you for your message. Ashwagandha is safe to be taken alongside other supplements including Vitamin E and Calcium. We would advise you check with your GP for interactions with estrogen medications for menopause as there are different variations of these medications. I hope this helps :)
