Wendy’s Weight Loss Tips – Week 3

EAT OFF A SMALLER PLATE – About 9″ across.IMAG0993Looking at a plate of food that is full, is more likely to make you feel full even though there is less food on the plate.

(The slice of bread on the plate above is also smaller than normal sized bread. It is Vogels Sunflower and Barley. This is my favourite bread for peanut butter. You can have 2 slices if you are just having toast , but I find that 1 slice is enough.)

Keep to the same proportions of carbohydrate, fats and proteins.The eatwell plateFrom NHS choices website.

SECOND TIP – If you are still hungry after eating your meal off a smaller plate, wait 20 minutes before you get up to reload your plate. This is how long it takes for your brain to register that you are full.

Oh go on then, JUST ONE MORE…I make my clients do 30 jumping jacks or power squats if they are craving something they shouldn’t. Try it, it works. It will put your mind back to your fitness goals and increases your ‘feel good’ factor, which usually increases your willpower to succeed. This in turn will make it easier to abstain from the large packet of biscuits you were about to shovel into your gob!

Good Luck this week and let me know if you are having any success. Big Love 🙂



I have been a Personal Trainer for about 23 years and I still love training and the buzz it gives me but writing has always been a part of my life. I think I wrote my first book at the age of 10. My grandmother said I would be a novelist one day and she was right - as all grandmothers often are! I live with my boyfriend Carl, we have 2 huskies who make us laugh every day, except when pulling us into bushes to chase after squirrels! I have also written a Diet and Fitness book for women over 40.
