Enjoy your Easter Holiday

I would like to wish all our Slimtone member a happy Easter. If you are looking for some new recipes for the weekend you will find a new selection on our website http://www.slimtone.co.uk. Scroll down the right hand side of home page and click on weekly recipes. Both the chicken with apples and cider, and the salmon steak with dill sauce are delicious and if you are looking for a low fat dessert for Sunday the chocolate
gateau will be a real treat. Once again do enjoy your break but do remember as we said in our Slimtone classes this week “chocolate makes your clother shrink”!!!!!

What are you giving up for Lent?

So many made their New Year’s Resolution to lose weight and eat healthy, unfortunately for so many these had been broken before the decorations were packed away. What have crept back into your daily diet that could be avoided during Lent. You may be surprised just how much you could lose by Easter simply by avoiding sugar in your tea and coffee (the new sweetener Truvia is really popular with the members and no after taste like some artificial alternatives). Avoid takeaways and make your own fakeaways. The economy jars of curry and sweet and sour sauces in the supermarkets are fab and with cooked chicken, onions, mushrooms etc. make a quick and inexpensive meal. Also, you could see half a stone melting away during the next few weeks. Using low fat cheese spread instead of butter is another tasty way of saving the calories. These are only a few of the ideas we share at Slimtone and making them your aim through Lent would be a great start to losing weight. Let me know how you get on…..

What are you giving up for Lent

Slimtone members have been really surprised at just how much extra weight they can be losing by watching those “little extras” that sometimes creep back into our diet. Just avoiding that little cream egg when collecting the daily newspaper and you could lose two pounds. Saying “no” to the half a bottle of wine in the evening another three and half pounds. I know you would not think about having two take aways per week but if you know a friend who does let them know they can lose a half a stone by Easter and save the £££££££ Let us know what treats you are giving up this Lent….
