I have by association been encouraging the wife as she follows the Slimming World diet over the past 9 weeks or so and have managed to lose 1st 4lbs.

How does everyone avoid pigging out over Christmas, cos I know it going to be difficult.

Will power I know, any other strategies?

Just don't be a pig. When you're comfortably full, stop eating.

Either that or sneak off for a tactical :puke:

Being from Yorkshire I find the suggestion that I should do anything that results in the loss of pounds highly offensive and not in keeping with my racial traits.

Nope, don't believe in diets.

I try and eat sensibly (try being the operative word) have never been one to pig out over xmas, not being a big fan of xmas dinner or sweet things helps, though the cheeseboard is always my biggest foe.

A few years ago I lost over a stone over the Christmas break. It's quite easy. just don't eat all the additional crap that is foisted on you. You will actually feel better for it!

For Christmas dinner I had all the meat that I wanted and all the veg (no spuds), but I didn't have the usual 3 helpings of Christmas Pudding and the cheese board afterwards. I made a point not to drink three bottles of red wine in the afternoon and ignored the sweets, nuts and crisps that get left all over the place. I am slowly geting the point around to the rest of the family that getting through £300 worth of food in a day is neither healthy or sensible. I opted to not to drink over new years and just ate a little more sparse than normal...

Avoid carbs and get exercise.

Also do research. Someone told me about a slimming world instructor who liked Irish Coffees. She ecided to be good and have horlicks slimming drinks instead. The next week she had put on weight - and found out that horlicks slimming is nearly as many syns as Irish Coffee!

That's because you're meant to stop eating when the cheese and biscuits are finished.

Only a complete greedy cow would eat the board as well :tongue

I did a gig with a guy a few years ago, and his view on dietting was "when your pants feel tight, just buy some bigger ones" - He was already a good 46" waist at that point :tired

It wasn't the guy on the right, was it?

I'll eat what I want as usual without putting on weight. It's in my aristocratic genes. Only working class oiks get fat.

I'll eat what I want as usual and only build more muscle mass. It's in my athletic genes. Only unfit people get fat.

I'll eat what I want as usual and get fatter. I'll then post online that I didn't put on any weight and in fact toned up. It's in my walter mitty genes.

I shifted 4 stone last year, down from a fat 17.5 stone to a racing fit 13.5, running a marathon distance every weekend and 2 half marathons during the week. I have my eye on the marathon de sables in 2014.

Yes, because Henry VIII was a very svelte chap by the time he'd finished.
