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.

Since the cold press presses the produce to extract the oil, no heat is involved. ... You get 100% of the vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and nutrients when you apply cold pressed oil on your face.

However, because of its richness it is often used at dilutions of approximately 5-15% in skincare formulations. Combining Rosehip oil and pomegranate oil will give you a deeply nourishing blend of particularly antioxidant- and vitamin rich oils. It may also support scars, wrinkles and premature ageing. Hope this helps.
