Watch this webTV show to learn how to say no to yo-yo dieting and make this your last New Year resolution to lose weight
Show date: Monday 4th January
Show time: 2:30pm
This coming year more and more of us are likely to make dieting our New Year’s resolution. However for many of us, this will be a ritual we are all too familiar with. Having tried dieting the year before and been unsuccessful, the process of losing weight and then gaining it is something us women struggle with on a regular basis.
Losing weight and keeping the weight off can give you a better quality of life, not only will you look fabulous in that dress, but the health benefits are astounding, reducing the risk of life threatening diseases such as type-2 diabetes and heart disease, two of the leading causes of death worldwide1.
With all the weight loss programmes and diets that Britons are attempting this New Year, it’s important to know what food and exercise combinations can help you lose weight – consequently reducing visceral fat. Visceral fat which surrounds vital organs in the abdomen can’t be seen or felt, but the metabolically active fat in unhealthy amounts can add to serious health problems.
In this live WebTV show, David Haslam, chairman of the National Obesity Forum, and Terry Maguire, Pharmacist of Maguire Pharmacy, Belfast, explain what you can do to avoid the yo-yo dieting pattern and how to get rid of dangerous hidden fat. We also have Paula Keogh talking about her weight loss experiences with alli*. Submit your questions before hand or ask them live.
Here’s an interesting message from the UnReality Team
Right – it’s no secret I’ve thought X Factor was lame this year. The talent was lacking in a lot of the finalists, and there were a lot of problems. Mentoring in particular needs an overhaul:
“The judges cannot give good, constructive criticism and advice if they invested in select groups of contestants as their mentor.”
We saw it this year with Simon, who wouldn’t say a word against his contestants, even when they were awful. If Olly had been mentored by Louis, imagine the harsh comments he’d have made – tacky, like a bad wedding singer, etc.
a) They need to concentrate on the contestants as individuals. If Jamie’s a rocker, find out what he’s passionate about and give him the right songs. We need to see the contestants develop as artists so we know who they’ll be when they emerge.
b) They need a seperate team of mentors – Yvie Burnett is a must for vocal coaching, but they’ll need advice on stage presence and stuff like that. I think Brian Friedman needs to go as creative director though.
c) The theme weeks are a disaster – look at Jamie Afro, Rachel Adedeji who ended up singing songs that didn’t suit them. Scrap the themes and give the contestants the right songs – it’ll create a bit more variety on the night as well!
d) The winner’s song – it can’t be a boring power ballad. That’s unimaginative and bad for the winner. Give them a song that’ll compete in the charts and stop with the schmaltzy key-change nonsense.
