How to Start a New Year Without a Santa Belly

Weight loss is a multi-million dollar business. It is a growing industry (if you’ll excuse the pun).

As our food quality falls and we breed more produce that’s sweeter (from sucrose) or starchier, juicier, lower in fibre, more nutritionally dilute we get more obese and suffer its complications. As we put more bad fats (trans-fats), bad sugars (sucrose) and low fibre ingredients into our prepared foods and cook out any real food value the same thing happens. We get fatter and more prone to illness over time.

If you over-indulged at Xmas and are back at work now and are feeling like Santa Claus, take a load off your shoulders (and your knees) and lose some of that bulk.

The easiest way I know to do it (apart from liposuction) is with a high antioxidant, high protein, fibre enhanced, high flavour diet. Add to this, an exercise regime developed at the University of New South Wales, Faculty of Medicine and you have the recipe for success.

Here’s some more information on why it’s so hard to lose weight and how to go about it:

What’s the Perfect diet?

Weight loss is important.

The risk of most lethal diseases are exacerbated by obesity – heart attack, stroke, aneurysms, some cancers.

And diseases such as diabetes are made much worse. Did you know that diabetics can suffer neuropathy, blindness, kidney (and other organ) failure, the list is long and frightening.
