My Diet And The #Hairybikers
Welcome Back To The Hairy Bikers… Helping Me To Lose 2 Stones In 3 Months
Yep, the @HairyBikers … or in this case, The Hairy Dieters are back and Simon and Dave with their new programme are just the inspiration I need as I’ve been putting this off to far too long…
… yep… here starts my own weight loss programme; to lose 2 stones in 3 months.
Luckily I don’t have to change my diet too much as I already have a good diet with healthy home-made food with fresh ingredients… it’s just a case of eating too much of it… or in my case… too much of a good thing…
… however there is an ingredient that has been missing from my dietary / health regime… one ingredient that I don’t usually find palatable…
There’s only one “secret” to losing weight and maintaining a healthy weight… and it’s so incredibly simple…
… “eat healthy and move more”…
That’s right… eat healthy and move more…
See? I told you it was simple…
… and yes… I’ve got to up my “moving more” bit.
… I’ll let you know how I get on.
In the meantime enjoy the Hairy Bikers Skinny beef lasagne.

If you really care about what you feed to your children, then explore the “Feeding For Life Foundation”
“Good nutrition is vital in the early-years, when young children develop rapidly and lay down eating habits and preferences which last a lifetime, shaping their future health.
Health visitors and early-years practitioners are an invaluable source of support and information for parents and carers during these often challenging years. The Feeding for Life Foundation is a new education initiative established to assist and enhance this important work…”

(Sadly) Fast food becomes the UK’s meal of choice - We need to “Dig For Victory!”
It pains me to have to post this… it really does…
“Fast food, for the first time ever, now makes up more than half of all the meals eaten outside of the home in Britain.
The recession, and the subsequent squeeze on disposable income, has encouraged millions of families to cut back on spending on luxuries, especially on meals in restaurants. This has encouraged many to trade down to cheaper meals, especially burgers and fried chicken…”

This goes against everything that I try to do with my blog here, which includes
• Promoting fresh home prepared food
• Encouraging you to planning your meals a week ahead with a menu which saves money when grocery shopping
• Cooking with ingredients which are in season / fresh ingredients
• Convincing you that home cooking with fresh ingredients is actually cheaper when you know what many fast foods contain… (or don’t contain as the case may be…)
• Knowing the provenance of your ingredients
• Trying to convince you that home-prepared food tastes better and is more healthier than ready-cooked “meals”
• Cutting back on take-aways (take-outs)
• Cooking in large batches whereby you can freeze some for a later date and so save money
• Trying to convince you that if I can cook then so can you
… and so much more…
Perhaps we need to focus more on growing more of the food we eat ourselves… allotments, renting someone’s garden, community gardening and growing…
I think in order to get ourselves out of this recession, or not let it bite as painfully as it does, we need to once again “Dig For Victory”
