Diet Chocolate


Whilst monitoring a stream on one of the social media platforms, this picture caught our attention. It was attached to a post relating to a participant at Slimming World where conventional wisdom suggests that you can lose weight and include a slice of chocolate in your diet every day. Heaven for some ?

It doesn’t work. But then that’s the whole beautiful point of just such a commercial profit based company. They can enthusiastically scoop you up and take you along for the ride giving you part information leading to your rapid transformation from former large guy to socially acceptable beef cake and then step aside while you implode back into your former self only this time even fatter.  And they collect the nice fat pay cheque when you re-apply for membership at the club.  Ask Slimming World to produce a list of members over the years who have made it to target and then ask them to produce a list of those still at target after 6 months, 1 year two years five years: where are they now?

For all those diet clubs who tell you that you can lose weight, keep it off and still eat processed junk including such delights as above: Shame on You!

And for those of you caught in the diet trap, review the evidence and go back to the facts.  Unless we conquer basic sugar addiction we will always be subject to the vagaries of health and weight gain.

About Paleo Works

Paleo Works Have you ever wondered how you arrived at “being overweight” and thought how difficult it is to get rid of and keep off those excess pounds? Hi, I’m Katie and together with Mike my husband, we are Paleo Works. As a busy working mum of four, I often watched others embark on weight loss progammes only to return to their start weight (and then some) shortly after reaching their target. Why was this happening? Conventional dietary wisdom would have us believe that it’s YOU who has failed. But Mike and I thought different. We felt that there had to be something wrong with that conventional dietary wisdom after all we can’t all be hopeless? So we studied intensely, sought out advice and read avidly. We questioned robustly and talked with many on various 'dieting' regimes. What we found was radical, our story has to be told, our knowledge has to be shared. So If you are ready to stop blaming your self for being overweight and ready to change your approach to weight loss then contact us and let’s get started!
