Do I need to eat a certain way to be able to do the programmes?
All programmes cater for vegetarians and non-vegetarians. The weight loss programme does encourage gluten and dairy free eating because we tend to eat too much of these items and people generally feel better reducing these foods.
Do I have to give up everything I love?
Eating should be enjoyable and if you give up everything you love you'll probably end up rebelling and going on a major binge which isn't good for how you feel about yourself, or your waistline. On the other hand, the really tempting foods tend to be high in sugar, fat, salt or a combination or all three and as such do not help us feel our best. So it's about making healthy, sustainable progress towards reducing the junk but it's not about perfection.
What about alcohol?
This is similar to the question above because alcohol doesn't offer us anything nutritionally, apart from sugar and calories, but it is enjoyable and often makes us feel more relaxed. The liver will process alcohol above everything else, including excess hormones. If excess hormones aren't processed by the liver they can get recycled in the body potentially leading to hormone imbalance which is often an element of belly fat. We therefore want to help the liver function optimally and one of the ways to do this is to reduce alcohol and many people experience weight loss when they do this.
An important issue to mention is that it's beyond the scope of this website to address serious issues around alcohol, or eating for that matter (please see the disclaimer).
So are you basically saying it's 'everything in moderation'?
I hesitate to say this because people's idea of 'moderation' is different and we often use it as an excuse to eat whatever we feel like, whenever! The aim is for you to gradually makes steps towards eating healthier and feeling more confident about your eating habits so that you're comfortable around food long term rather than relying willpower. It can be a slow process but it's sustainable and doable....and you're worth it!
