Guest post: Why so many diets fail; how you can make yours work

My First Guest Post!

My readers have been so supportive with my writing advice and book reviews — thank you, by the way — but Brittany from Newsic to my Ears has asked me to guest post on health and dieting. And … I’ve just posted my first article Why so many diets fail; how you can make yours work.

Health is so important. The number of people who are overweight has doubled since 1980. In 2008, WHO said that 1.5 billion people are overweight.

Many of you may not be aware that I’m a Type 1 Diabetic. I’ve seen many dietitians and other similar specialists for my health over the years and I’ve compiled some tips on losing weight pre-Christmas (so you have an excuse to feel less guilty pigging out on Christmas Day).

Here’s a taster for what’s in the article:

  • PORTION CONTROL
  • EAT SLOWLY
  • USE SMALL UTENSILS
  • DIVIDE YOUR MEALS: CARBOHYDRATES, VEGETABLES, PROTEIN
