The One Food Secret You Need to Know!

From time to time I do get requests to help people with weight loss, often when they’ve tried several diets and failed to keep the weight they lost off. More often than not the reasons are all linked to one simple truth that many people have lost their grip on:

Food is fuel


That’s it. It’s when we forget that, and make food something else that we have problems. Anything else we decide food is supposed to do for us is something we’ve invented or believed whether that’s culturally or personally.

Although we use food as part of social occasions, enjoy the range of tastes and flavours of food, have built businesses around it, create celebrities from those who make it, and all too often misuse it as a proxy for comfort, love and affection, control, reward or even punishment, food is simply fuel, no matter what form it takes. If you consume more fuel than you need, your body will store the excess as fat. If you consume less fuel than you need, your body will use its stores of fuel to make up the deficit.

What do you think of food..?
