Have you been embarking on the same diet for years, yet recently found that no matter how regimented you are it just isn’t giving you the results it once did? You are not alone!
Fiona Kirk, nutritionist and author of a new series of 10 books, Diet Secrets Uncovered, suggests that it has a lot to do with the fact that our nutritional requirements change, often dramatically throughout our lives. A weight loss diet that works for a single woman in her 20’s is unlikely to reap the same results when she is in her 40’s and struggling through the early stages of menopause. Similarly, a diet that is going to encourage post pregnancy weight loss is never going to suit a teenager who wants to stay strong and healthy whilst shedding a few pounds and a diet that sees results for fitness fanatics who want to shed a bit of fat around the middle, is a million air miles away from the weight loss diet that a stressed executive should consider. She says, “With a bit of focus, most people can successfully lose weight but we have to take quite a number of things into consideration before we leap into the unknown!”
The 10 books are geared to 10 different audiences; Single Men & Women, Office Workers, Menopausal Women, Stressed Executives, Shift Workers, Teenagers, Women Post Pregnancy, Seniors, Fitness Enthusiasts and Newly Weds and each one of the books offers nutritional, exercise and supplement suggestions to allow you to fit your diet around your current age, lifestyle, health and fitness status. Choose the right book for you and it could help you feel better, look better and torch excess flab if necessary.
Fiona offers a choice of diets in each book – a 2-3 meals a day with no snacks option and a 5-6 smaller meals and snacks option, allowing you to select which strategy best suits your timetable, eating habits and tastes along with a wealth of recipes. Most of her recipes look quick to shop for, quick to prepare and delicious to eat! Her books may also help you to plan ahead and have meals and snacks to hand thus avoiding the temptation to fall into the trap of making choices which may not be too kind to the waistline. There are also plenty of out and about suggestions for those who have little time to cook or when time is tight and you have to opt for something off the shelf.
You can find a selection of the recipes and more details on all the books in the Diet Secrets Uncovered series which are currently available as eBooks (£2.50) and will shortly be available in print (£4.50) at www.fionakirk.com.
