THE lady on the phone was adamant when I asked her what would make her happy. “Getting down to 9st 7lbs,” she insisted. It was an interesting answer. But not as interesting as her answer to my next question. “So if you’d lost two stones

IN my last blog I was so excited about Slimpod and myself making our TV debut on Channel 4’s How To Lose Weight Well and I explained how believing in myself and my goals was the critical part in making that happen. Over the many

IN my first blog about New Year Boot Camp on Monday I said I had an amazing goal-setting expert to help you create goals that will serve you through 2019 and help you succeed. Brian Mayne is great friend, mentor and a world leader in
THE New Year is here so let’s attack 2019 with gusto in my four-week fun Boot Camp! There’ll be no pain but lots of gain – and most of all, I’m going to make it really enjoyable. At Christmas so many people completely lose the
WE’RE approaching the end of the Summer in the UK and I know it’s probably been one of the worst times of year to stay on track with weight loss goals – apart from Christmas! I’ll bet anything that routine has gone out the window
WE’RE seven days into August and the holiday season has well and truly started (unless you’re reading this in Australia, New Zealand or South Africa!) I’m constantly hearing people say “I’m a little bit worried about how I’m going to cope with food when I’m
ONE of the trickiest questions I’m asked is this: “When somebody loses weight, where does all the fat go?” You know what – I wasn’t too sure myself the first time this cropped up. Luckily, I spend a lot of time studying research papers from
Ever wondered why losing weight seems to be a never ending battle? Ever wondered why willpower just doesn’t last? Did you realise that you have two important parts to your mind and they both have to work together in order for you to lose weight and
WOW! I can’t believe we’re on the run-up to Christmas – how did that happen? It’s always a great opportunity to have the last push of the year to release some of that excess weight. So let me help you to drop a size for Christmas!
ONE of the most common things people in our Slimpod Community on Facebook raise with me is their relationship with the weighing scales. One lady asked if I could help her to understand more about the effect the scales have on her emotions because she
YOU ask, we listen! Following a great discussion in our Facebook Slimpod Club community last week, we’ll be launching on October 30th a 30-day drive to Drop a Size In Time For The Christmas Partying! In Slimpod Club between now and October 30th I’ll be
DAY IN and day out I come across so many people who get really upset if they’re not consistently losing lots of weight each week. Some people then stop doing whatever they’re doing because they think the weight loss plan has stopped working, or it
RESEARCH shows that habits account for about 40 per cent of our behaviour every day, so you can understand why it’s so important to create good health habits that stick, because this is one of the key secrets to lasting weight loss. My Autumn Success
I WAS at Tameside Hospital in Manchester on Monday visiting people who are on our NHS/Slimpod programme and got very emotional when I heard the changes a lot of people are experiencing. Yes, there’s weight loss, but it’s much deeper than this for so many.
MY Week 4 Boot Camp video is about limiting beliefs and self-doubt – how they sabotage lasting weight loss (and what you can do about it). This was in my Boot Camp last January and it resonated with so many people so I thought
THIS week we’re talking food – such a HUGE subject and one about which there is so much confusion. Food gets labelled good and bad, naughty or “a treat”, a syn and any number of other things. So It’s no wonder food has all sorts
One of the things I’ve noticed most during nearly 10 years of helping people lose weight is how a lot of them panic when I ask them to set goals. Last week was no exception. Posting a picture and setting goals sent shockwaves through some of
HEY! Welcome to my six week “Get Ready for Summer” Boot Camp! The words “Boot Camp” can sometimes be scary, so first of all I want to assure you that the next six weeks are going to be a very positive, enjoyable and motivational experience!
ALL too often we relegate ourselves to the bottom of the pile behind partners, children, parents, work and housework. This has to stop! We need to be in tip-top condition to meet the demands of our hectic lives, so let’s pledge to crack this here
Counting calories keeps food at the front of your mind, which means you’re forced to constantly think about it. So should you be counting calories or points when you’re on a Slimpod programme? This is the first of a series of blog posts where I’ll be answering
When people start on our Slimpod programmes, they generally begin to notice changes in their behaviour towards food and exercise. Maybe a certain food doesn’t seem so appetising any more, maybe they are motivated to do a certain exercise that they had never considered before.
FOR the next four weeks we’re going to have fun with food – not any old food but the right healthy food that will help the inches dissolve! We know that the Slimpod helps you automatically make healthier choices (because we’re all *supposed* to have learned
WEIGHT loss discipline is this week’s tiopic. As you’re the proud owner of a Slimpod you’ll already know how easy the programme is and you’ll be experiencing just how amazing your own mind is! So for week two of the eight-week Summer boot camp I thought I
LET’S get started on our Summer Body Boost boot camp, an exclusive event for members of Slimpod Club, our private Facebook group. As you know, an essential part of the Slimpod programme is goalsetting so we’ll kick the next eight weeks off by working out
CHOCOLATE cravings can be very hard to stop because the massive sugar content in chocolate stimulates a part of our brain which is hugely powerful. When I tell people that being addicted to chocolate is just like being hooked on a drug like heroin they
I WAS really upset by the stories several ladies told me last week about the real-life effects of the diet clubs culture and the emotional connections it creates. They were made to feel bad by the people running their diet clubs because they had broken the
