Choosing a Weight Loss Plan

this page is still under construction

please be patient

however below are some useful links and videos

 Michael Mosely, a UK doctor that experimented on himself.  He recommends intermittent fasting, preferably whilst on a mediteranean style diet and also discusses other issues such as a healthy gut and the gut microbiome, the best exercise and diabetes.  He has written quite a few books, but the one I found most useful is "Fast 800" (US readers go to Fast 800)

some advice from psychologist Dr Doug Lisle has been invaluable.  Something that he, and I think some of his colleagues have termed 'The pleasure trap".  There are many videos of him speaking on the subject but I've found his Tedx talk to be the best.  He has also written a book the pleasure trap (UK) The pleasure trap (US)

Thirdly and fourthly, also information from Dr Doug Lisle, concernning what he calls The Ego Trap and The Cram Circuit.  

You would do well to read his books, seriously....

For UK residents:

Fast 800 Diet

and the witty book that lead me to them:

The Grumpy Dieter's Handbook

For US residents:

Fast 800 Diet

The Grumpy Dieter's Handbook

You can also find help, encouragement, explanations, recipes and more at Dr Michael Mosley's fast 800 website


How many times have you heard say, or said yourself, "How come the tastiest foods are the ones that are bad for you?  I wish I would crave salad instead of chocolate" - well here is your answer...

You can look these up on youtube and I do show them on my pleasure trap diary page where I am keeping a record of how well or not these concepts have helped me.

The biggest eye opener was the Cram Circuit and I think that just having this knowledge of why we have such trouble with our weight, why we binge and why we cram high calorific food into our bodies and why we find it difficult to combat is empowering in itself

So if you want to follow and see how well I did/am doing visit my page on The Pleasure Trap

anothe thing to take into consideration is satiety and what foods best fill you up so you don't eat so much - worth a look and the answers will surprise you
