Be fit and healthy when you go out. Ditch that extra fat by losing 10 pounds fast!  

The solution - cut out all unnecessary sugar and fat from your diet and stock up on tasty healthy meals and snacks that will keep you full and not craving. Use the tips below to kick start your healthy dieting plan. This is a balanced diet so you can keep it going for as long as you like! You will have more energy to go out and do all the wonderful activities that are on this site - from free trips to golfing.
  
Top Tips For A Healthy You!
  • What are you eating? If you don’t know, start to keep a track of all you eat and drink.
  • Reduce your fat intake by half, that means half the amount of butter on scones or bread, half the amount of salad cream or mayonnaise – or just say no to mayonnaise - and reduce the amount of oil, by half,  when cooking and marinating food.
  • Reduce any sugar treats to twice a week.
  • Stock up on your protein rich food such as fish, meat, chicken, legumes, peanut, eggs or yogurt.
  • Try to go have a vegetarian meal at least once a day – either lunch or dinner this will help reduce the amount of fat you intake and increase fibre. Try to have meals based around vegetables, beans and whole grains.
  • Use skinned milk instead of full-fat milk or try semi-skinned milk.
  • Fresh fruit is great for a sweet tooth -  eat at least two servings of fresh fruit every day.
  • Drink water instead of fruit juice. Don’t like the taste of water? Add lemon or lime juice.
  • Your lunch and dinner should include at least two servings of vegetables – this will give you four serving per day!
  •  Have at least one or two servings of whole grains with every meal.
  • Don’t snack in front of the television – studies have shown you will eat more. Turn off the TV and enjoy a smaller amount of food and thus less calories!
  • Choose foods that you can eat ! Carbonated sugar drinks are loaded with empty calories and fruit juices do not provide the same amount of fibre and vitamins as the real fruit – so be careful.
  • Don’t leave your meals to chance; plan what you are going to eat for your meals and snacks, this way you don’t make hasty choices. We tend to select higher calorie snacks and meals when we do not plan ahead. 
Now you are energised – go forward and start your healthy eating today. Good luck and eat right! Have fun with that new found energy  and find out what’s on in London today!

How to Gain more Time and Have More Energy FUN


Time is gold dust – well in many ways better than gold. No matter what your social status we all have the same amount of time in a day.  Buying time is a popular idiom, but in reality time that is lost cannot be reclaimed. Indeed, time that is lost may have a greater impact on your life than you think!

It is very easy to lose time pontificating and procrastinating about what should be or how terrible a world we live in. It is quite easy to sit around wasting your time thinking amount how poor you are or when you are going to win that huge lottery and have a fantastic life.

Most of us do not appreciate the time we have and how we abuse it, rather than use it. You will never ever get back lost time and so it is important to grab it with both hands and spend time investing in life and yourself.

How much time do you spend just watching the television or surfing the net? How much time do you waste at work , just doing nothing? This lost time soon creeps into all aspects of your life. Not much can get done around the home, time out or having fun - if time is lost procrastinating and pontificating. It’s all very well waking up early to gain more time, but are you actually doing something productive or just sitting around drinking coffee and having a few more smokes? Time will not come back to you!

Rather than watching time go by, select things that you enjoy and that will make you happy and motivate you. How many times have you sat at work pondering on the end of the week or waiting for the end of the working day? This is lost time!  Find something that will take your mind away from that and concentrate on that task. Time will then soon go very quickly without you wishing it away. You will also have completed a task that would otherwise have been put off for weeks or forever.

Live for today and not for tomorrow. Don’t let time slip away. Manage your time by thinking carefully about how you organize your life, thoughts and behaviour. 

Don’t let time start tomorrow, wake it up today


Have a lovely day.
