It's Dr Jen here.

 

Do you ever feel like a failure because you can’t stick to your diet or exercise plan?  Many people do, so you're not alone. I don’t believe weight loss is as simple as 'eat less move more'. I believe that there are lots of reasons why we struggle to lose weight, that have very little to do with calories and exercise. And I’ve found that many of them just happen to begin with the letter F!

 

So the ‘Why the F are We So F-A-T? Experiment’ was born.

 

Join me for the next 30 days and Find out ‘Why the F’ you are heavier than you’d like…..

  • Is it because you’re eating for Fun?
  • To deal with Feelings?
  • For lack of Focus?
  • Due to outdated Fables?
  • Because you’re a Finisher?

Or maybe one of the other F’s I’ll be talking you through from tomorrow. I'm interested in transforming our understanding of 'F-A-T'; shifting our attention from 'Food-And-Treadmills' to the 'Feelings-And-Thoughts' we have about eating and our weight.

 

Each day for the next 30 days, you will receive a bitesize chunk of info about the F of the day, with an ‘Experiment’ you can try out if you fancy it.

 

Why an ‘Experiment’? Because I don’t believe  in more to-do’s, rules and should that are part of the dieting mindset. They only lead to yet another F….(find out which when you join us!). Experiments are playful and no one quite knows what the outcome will be – instead it’s just a game of figuring out what helps and doing more of it!

 

I'm looking forward to you joining me for the experiment and can’t wait to hear how you get on!

 

With best wishes,

 
Dr Jen
