Letter from Marilyn – July 2008

MarilynDear Reader


I wanted to share something with you that was posted up in my local leisure centre.  It conveys what I have written about in previous Natural News but it is good to see it all written down in such a practical way. 


When the average women attempts to transform their body shape i.e. lose weight (fat), they make most, if not all, of these mistakes below:



  • Skips breakfast (in an attempt to eat less)
  • Eats too many carbohydrates (usually bad ones)
  • Consumes far too little protein
  • Thinks ‘healthy’ dietary fat means no dietary fat
  • Doesn’t supplement her diet and training
  • Under-eats in the first half of the day
  • Over-eats in the second half of the day
  • Doesn’t lift weights adequately (if at all)
  • Eats too infrequently (meals are way too far apart)
  • Has her biggest meal at night, often a ‘binge’ or ‘out of control’ meal (therefore, she wakes up not hungry, skips breakfast and starts that cycle over).


From my point of view, it is easy to see how these bullet points are simple traps that a lot of women (and men too) fall into and then wonder why they are not losing weight or changing shape.  So see which ones you need to change to keep you fit and healthy.




Kind regards
