Let’s face it- we all know dieting gets harder and harder the older you, get and ladies, it also becomes a hell of a lot of effort. For one the emotional strength needed to stay ONLY in the fruit and veg aisles in a supermarket alone is a trial.
But don’t be put off. As we get older we need to start taking better care of our bodies, not just for self-esteem but to make sure we keep ticking over and to keep us safe from any illness.
There are a lot of easier diet options which give you more control over your weight. For example, meal replacement diets- they are just for the rich and famous who do not have a chef at their every beck and call nor are they solely for people who have medicated diets.
The diets usually consists of low calories meals, soups, shakes and snacks all of which are high in protein and fibre but really low calorie, so what you do consume doesn’t leave you feeling empty and hungry- there is no point in a diet which will starve you and make your body hoard calories.
Basically a meal replacement diet gives you and whole load of meal options, you choose what you want to eat, throw in some healthy and wonderfully filling shakes and snacks and you’re all set. Most people order these week on week or month on month and you get some cracking deals.
They don’t need to be expensive either, the average meal replacement diet is around £30 a week, which when you consider how much you spend on all your food and drink in a week, isn’t bad at all.
The joys of these meals are that you can add anything to them that you want. If you’re super keen then you don’t have to, or some salad or veg will do fine, but if you’re having one of those days when you just need carb based comfort then you can have them on pasta or with a jacket potato- the recipes are endless.
All the meals come with some kind of low calorie desert as well so those of you with a sweet tooth won’t be getting those sugar cravings.
