Have Sweet or Savoury Treats and Still Lose Weight

  Losing weight doesn’t mean you have to cut out your treats!

This week at BEEWEIGHED  we shared lots of lovely sweet and savoury treats that you can have and still fit them into your plan whether that be a low cal, low carb, point, syn diet.  At every meeting we all left with our mouths watering!! lol 🙂

People on a diet tend to think treats are a ‘no-no’ when trying to lose weight.  The reality is quite the opposite.  People who cut down rather than cutting out food groups are more likely to keep off the weight long term.  Remember there is no such thing as BAD foods, have in moderation!

It is essential to stop classing foods as good or bad.  It is down to how much of something you eat and how often.  Denying yourself of certain foods you enjoy can lead to negative and psychological emotions, which is why so many people class weight loss with denial, hunger and feeling miserable.  But it really doesn’t have to be like that.

Having a more relaxed approach and including SOME treats makes losing weight successful and sustainable and it builds a long term positive attitude towards food.
