I spent ages writing a post and lost it.
I now post a shortened version.
To lose weight one has to consume fewer calories than one needs to maintain ones weight. It sounds easy, but cravings often cause people to give up.
Cravings are caused by consuming refined sugars and refined carbohydrates. To simplify this; processed foods. The reason that we get cravings after eating, or drinking them is they mess up our insulin levels. An example is; someone gives you a chocolate bar, you are NOT HUNGRY, yet after one square you go on to eat the whole bar.
Doctor Hillary Jones who often appears on ITV said" the best way to lose weight and then maintain a healthy is to never eat, or drink anything with an ingredients label on it".
I was 17 stones at my maximum weight I have been at a healthy weight for many years. I used to yo yo diet, until I discovered th GI diet. I have adapted it to suit me. I hate chocolate and all of those foods that caused me cravings in the past. Not only am I a healthy weight I am ver fit and healthy.
