      Traditional slimming approaches tend to have one (at least!!) glaring flaw. They treat the human body as a machine to be adjusted by altering the fuel intake. You, in fact, know this already because you have been doing diet after diet, and with variations, they are all broadly similar in the emphasis and approach. Tackle the food, you'll lose weight and you'll be healthy and happy. Yet it simply doesn't happen. Why not?

      There is a missing component, the bulk of the slimming industry does not, will not and can not tackle adequately because it would cut their own throats, commercially. It provides the missing element for a successful outcome, and this is NOT a good idea. For them!

      We say that there are three components involved and the first is the key to success or staying overweight. We are not machines. It isn't a question of having a religious belief that says we have souls, but a commonsense and scientific statement that says we have minds, emotions and feelings, and it is this forms the missing element. The second is the nutrition that will ensure you have a healthy and enjoyable way of eating that takes food out of the fearful category and enables you to eat, as millennia of humans have eaten until the last fifty years, for fuel and also for pleasure. The third element is exercise, but with a different emphasis. Because modern life is less physical and more sedentary, we use our bodies much less hard than our parents and grandparents did. Which has led to the growth of the 'exercise' industry which complements the slimming cartel and is just as pernicious. By the time you have gone a little further through what we have to offer you, you'll know that exercise alone is not going to lose you weight. It will make you fitter, it will make you healthier and happier because of the biochemical and hormonal processes involved. But it will not lose you significant weight. So, unless you actually enjoy sports and gyms, it doesn't make sense to soldier on grimly in the hope of losing weight doing this sort of thing. Nor do you have to. There are simpler ways of incorporating movement into normal everyday life that don't need gyms and machines or aerobics classes and time commitments. At the simplest, you figure ways of working physically a bit more every day and this can be as simple a thing as walking three flights of stairs instead of taking a lift.
