January 2009 Newsletter

I want to wish all my readers a very happy and healthy New Year, and thank you for your loving support through 2008. With the coming of the new year, I’m sure you all have New Year’s resolutions, including myself so that’s why I’ve created a brandnew 14-day kick start weight loss program. My goal is to teach my readers to be healthier by learning why fad diets are bad, curing bad habits, and avoiding the worst diet mistakes.

Ditch The Diet

Over the last five years, I have talked to thousands of people about their experiences with diets. Their number one complaint was this: After radically changing what they ate, the diet did work, but they had to deal with feeling deprived, hungry, and moody because they couldn’t have the foods they love.

Then, they just got tired of eating unsatisfying food, while everyone else around them was enjoying the meals they couldn’t have. And that’s when their resolve started to slip, they would fall back into their old eating habits, usually eating even more and gaining the weight back as quickly as they lost it. Sound familiar?

As the Skinny Chef, I have figured out a way how to ditch the diets and still lose weight!

My 14-Day Weight Loss Course …

Ditch the Diet and Still Lose WeightAre you ready to get started with DTD?. The program covers over 100 healthy living secrets that I have put into practice from my own experiences as a professionally-trained chef, as a certified yoga instructor, and as chef contributor for health publications such as SELF magazine, including:

  • How to be healthier without giving up your favorite foods
  • Top diet mistakes and how to change bad eating habits forever
  • Can your attitude can turn you from flab to fab?
  • How to stay healthy around junk food addicts
  • How to make exercise really work for you!

UK Minister of Food

The UK needs a minister for food to help tackle a growing obesity problem, chef Jamie Oliver has told British MPs. “If we don’t do enough in the next 10 years, we are going to be like America!” In the November 15 issue of the British Medical Journal, BMJ writer Adrian O’Dowd reported that TV Chef Jamie Oliver asked the members of the British parliament to hire a national Minister for Food to help tackle a growing obesity problem.

His appearance coincides with Jamie’s new TV series and campaign, Ministry of Food, which is all about getting people cooking again. He wants to show people that anyone can learn to cook – and that it’s fun, cool, can save you money and help you, your family and friends to live a healthier life.

  1. “Minister of Food”, what a wonderful idea! Jamie Oliver is the perfect person to lead the charge. He’s an awesome cook and 100% right that if the UK doesn’t do something, they will end up just as fat as Americans. Thank goodness someone is trying to do something!
