When you buy a block booking with Diets Don’t Work you automatically get a food diary assessment with comprehensive guidelines and tips as to the most effective way forward without starving yourself. Once you are approaching your weight problem by looking at both sides of the equation (input and output) chances are that you will be able to eat reasonably well and lose weight.
Sometimes though clients need an extra bit of help, and there ARE some food plans out there that work well.
Recommendation 1-Weight Watchers: one of our personal training clients in Iver can sometimes fall off the wagon a bit and go for the wine slightly too much. We have found that by her joining weight watchers while having 2-3 sessions a week with her personal trainer that progress is steady and consistent. Weight Watchers is good because it combines weekly accountability (you have to go to a meeting to weigh in each week), a team environment and a clever points system that soon teaches you what foods are more calorie dense than others, while promoting the principles of the whole-food diet. Once you are sticking to your points allowance you soon learn that chocolate or wine has lots of points in a small portion whereas vegetables have much less so you can have more! You also get lots of help in planning the weekly shop and in addition have access to various recipes that fit in with the plan.
All in all a good sensible way of losing weight while learning how to eat well. It is of course doubly effective when done in conjunction with some structured exercise! In fact you get extra points and can therefore eat more! As we go through the week we will go through some more food plans and give you the lowdown on how well they work in the long term.
