Open Letter to Jenni Murray

jenni-murray-dukan-dietOpen Letter to Jenni Murray who writes today in the Daily Mail.  Her weight-loss diary ran in the Mail for months.  Today a contrite Jenni Murray confesses….”the shame!  I’ve lost 5 stone on the Dukan (diet) – but I’ve put it ALL back on.”

Dear Jenni

Thank you for sharing your story.

What I like about your story is this: once again it shows how readily we accept the vicious cycle of weight loss and weight gain as a failing in us.

Jenni writes of her weight gain:

“Did I beat myself up about it?  Of course I did knowing that I would be perceived as a failure who was LMF (lacking in moral fibre).”

Come on Jenni fight back! You are not a victim!

Listen Up…It’s not you, it’s the food you are eating!  No big deal.

With the genetic code set in your body and pre-disposing you to weight gain, you need to look deeper at what you are eating.  It’s your diet not you!  It’s your diet that has let you down.  And diet clubs such as Weight Watchers, Slimming World and the like who tell you that you can have your chocolate cake and eat it (albeit in small portions) are not helping you!  This is the reality.  Read our report on the Dukan Diet and understand how dieting doesn’t work

Ditch the processed food, lose the chocolate fudge cake and treacle sponge – lady, it has to go.  Get serious about your body.  You are beautiful: inside and out.  And don’t let the idea (concept) of “emotional eating” keep you caught in the brambles and bushes at the side of the river.  It’s just another excuse.   Those of us who have turned our backs on the processed food industry, who have trained our bodies away from sugar, away from the roller coaster of emotions sugar addiction brings are waiting to tell you how good life can be without it.

 “Emotions are merely biochemical storms in your body and brain….The healthier your biochemistry, the better the emotional forecast”. – Nora Gedgaudas

Learn how to stop emotional eating – the secret is, it doesn’t actually exist.  When you replace the horrible low-fat options, the sugar and the chemicals with good saturated fat in your food you will find that the taste of your food brings satiety at a level you will not have experienced since your childhood.  And that’s what your body wants.  That’s what your body is craving. And that’s what is going to bring you home.

Warm regards

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!
