If you’re a frustrated yo-yo dieter and gym disliker who would like to lose 20lbs in 8 weeks while developing lasting healthy habits without having to do boring exercise you hate and give up food you love (with a money back guarantee), then you can apply for a place on the programme at


I read the other day that over 88% of over 12s in the UK have had at least one dose of a COVID vaccination.

Which slightly surprised me.

I’m not going to get into any sort of conversation about if it’s a good thing or not or about any restrictions people are, or might end up, facing if they don’t have the jab.

So no one needs to reply along those lines.

I just thought it would be a lower number now.

Because of the amount of conversation I hear about “anti-vaxxers”.

In the news, on social media, etc.

Note: I’m also aware that someone choosing not to be vaccinated doesn’t necessarily mean they are an “anti-vaxxer” too.

I’m just saying the level of discussion about anti-vaxxers / people not having the vaccination had led me to believe the percentage who had been vaccinated would be lower than it is.

But I had a little think about it.

In many situations, one group is considerably more vocal.

Nearly everyone I know who has been vaccinated has barely mentioned it since.

The level of conversation isn’t necessarily reflective of the numbers of people in either group.

As it often is when looking at different ways of eating.

From my experience, those who talk the most about their eating are those that aren’t achieving the results they’d like from it.

Long term.

Those who are happy with their weight and body don’t feel much need to talk about what they’re eating.

Those who post on social media the most about their latest diet of choice and the weight they’ve lost in the last week, nearly always aren’t in a better position overall than they were a year or two ago.

That doesn’t mean that their approach is necessarily bad.

Just a reminder that we don’t need an endless rotation of new diets.

We might hear about them more, sure.

But that isn’t reflective of the results they are producing.

The relatively silent majority of people who are getting steady results often do so with an approach that’s a little less comment worthy.

That generates less headlines, likes and shares.

That doesn’t get talked about as much.

Keeping in an average calorie deficit (or maintenance), even if they used a habit or rule based approach to make that happen rather than specifically tracking.

Still enjoying having most things within what they eat – but not “too much”.

Not using having had surplus calories as a justification to “write it off” and have loads more until some random point in the future.

It’s not sexy………

It doesn’t get talked about all that much………

But what gets talked about the most isn’t necessarily reflective of what’s happening.

Much love,
