Fortunately, this is the end of your quest. At Practically Slim, we’ve all six of the best.
5:2 plan or intermittent fasting
Eat what you like five days a week, go into starvation mode for two.
· Sticking to a regime two days a week can be easier to manage
· Don’t overeat on your five eating days. Eat in reasonable moderation.
The fast track plan or very low-calorie diet (VLCD)
Eat four packs of diet soups, shakes or meals plus a diet bar per day for a maximum of 12 weeks.
· We advise that you add a bowl of salad, a teaspoon of oil and 1-2 litres of water a day
· Rapid weight loss can be very motivating, but some research indicates it’s not sustainable. Other research suggests the results short and long term are not much different to conventional diets, you just get there sooner.
Various combinations of packs and intermittent fasting
You can use packs to fast alternate days, or, on the Weekenderdiet, five days a week, adding two small healthy meals on each of the remaining days.
The Meal a Dayor MAD plan provides for three packs a day plus small healthy meal seven days a week.
The Real Food plan
This is where you focus on eating foods low in calories. High energy density foods pack in lots of calories in a small amount of food. Think cheese, butter and chocolate. Now stop thinking about them! Low energy density foods are the opposite, enabling you to fill up without the calories.
Combine any of the above with the fantastic advice from our sparkling counsellors and we’ve got what you need to kickstart the year.
Be kind to yourself
Essential advice for when you trip at the inevitable hurdles there’ll be along the way. Pick yourself up, dust yourself off and speak to yourself kindly, the way you would a good friend.
