I really envy all my friends who are slim and full of energy. Why is life so unfair?

Answer: Life is not a rehearsal and there is no such thing as a magic weight loss fairy (or magic pill for that matter) which will turn you into a slim person overnight.

Instead of wishing you could be slimmer and full of energy, take a good look at just what you are eating and how much exercise you perform each week.

To both lose and maintain weight we need to reduce our total fat grams eaten per day to around 20-24 grams, eat three balanced meals and two snacks every day and exercise four times per week.

Remember, healthy people do it all the time!
