Ditching Diets: How to lose weight in a way you can maintain
Ditching Diets: How to lose weight in a way you can maintain

4.0 out of 5 stars Ditching Diets, 13 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a small book with a big message about dieting and its worthlessness in the long run ---- how dieting isnt the solution and the only way to heal the problem is to take back control of your own life and eating habits by ditching diets permanently.
it's simply written and the ideas are very clear , but actually implementing the information would take some adjustments in one's head . I have re-read it several times , as although it's so simple , it takes time and effort to adjust to new habits and the feeling of knowing that I am in charge of what and when I eat , and also accept the consequences of my actions.
Gillian Riley focuses on health and longevity as motivators to stop overeating , rather than weight loss, as this keeps us going in the long run. Dieting for weight loss loses its lustre eventually and we return to our old ways.. whereas focusing on health promotes a sense of self-esteem and personal power.
She doesnt go into why we overeat or the emotional eating end of this problem , or mindful eating or eating when hungry . Instead she proposes that we decide ourselves what is best for us with our end goal in mind---- no more dieting on a permenent basis and to live life in the real world comfortably and sanely , without avoiding social events that involve food, or following a diet regime that is unsustainable.


The Psychologist's Eat Anything Diet

I have read many books on weight -loss and diets ---- this has a great message but I feel it didnt resonate with me personally.
It is dated and was written many years ago , and seems too "psychological " , too much work.
It has the same concepts as Paul Mc Kenna , Beyond Chocolate, and Intuitive Eating. I would recommend Paul McKenna as he has updated this eat-what -you-love mentality and ditch dieting for good, but his version is less convoluted and old-fashioned in its presentation of tasks to journal and write down.

This is my first Katherine Jenkins cd, Im happy with the sound quality and her voice is beautiful. I had read all the reviews about her numerous cd's , and this one has a good mix of classics and I think a good start if choosing a cd from her collection .

A lovely purse/small clutch with compartments for credit cards and coins --- not cross body though as the strap is long enough to just hang on one shoulder . A good quality purse , with plenty of room for chq book and pen also.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kipling Jazmyn, 26 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this bag for using while sightseeing so am happy to say it's just the right size as a cross-body bag as it sits flatly on the hip and is large enough for an umbrella, purse, glasses , small camera(and sun-tan lotion if needed.)
Has a front zipped compartment big enough for bus pass or passport etc. Nice neutral colour too which will go with everything .
Good value as Kipling are well made and are light-weight too.

A good buy from Amazon as I have shopped around finding that its cheaper to buy this bag from them.
It's medium -sized bag with outer pockets and zipped inner compartment . Also a compartment at the back , zipped .
Plenty of room inside for all the usual stuff , purse, umbrella, make-up and a bit more!
