These no nonsense recipes offer delicious after work alternatives which are quick, easy, filling and healthy, as well as a variety of breakfasts, soups, salads and snacks that fulfil the same criteria. These are not necessarily dinner party food, although some recipes (such as “Scallop Truffle Pizza”) would certainly lend themselves to that option. The recipes centre around a variety of core ingredients so there’s less wastage in terms of both food and finances as well. For people looking to lose weight, become just that little bit healthier, or even achieve more of a work-life balance, this book offers the perfect accompaniment to 50 Steps to Lose 50kg . . . And Keep It Off.
50 Steps to Lose 50kg . . . And Keep It Off is a truly inspiring account of Sally Symonds’ dramatic weight loss which saw her lose over 50% of her original body weight (over 50kg). Whilst over 90% of people who lose weight eventually regain it, Sally has actually lost even more weight since her initial loss way back in 2002!
Distributors, Dennis Jones and Associates, have already had to place a third order with the publishers due to an overwhelming demand for the book as people are switched on to this great weight loss story.
50 Steps to Lose 50kg . . . And Keep It Off motivates and educates – but it doesn’t dictate or offer a strict diet or exercise plan. “It is not one of those weight loss books written by someone who suffered in self-confidence, suddenly learnt to believe in themselves and “hey presto!” they lost weight. Nor is it one of those weight loss books written by someone who doesn’t know what it really feels like to be overweight. When I was overweight they were the only options in terms of motivational reading materials, and I couldn’t relate to either of them. This book is for those type of people.”
Sally believes everyone essentially knows how to lose weight, eat better and exercise more, they just don’t know how to stick to it. Sally reveals quirky tips and tricks that help you think with your brain not your stomach. As she reveals:
“My book outlines exactly the steps I took and changes I made – to my food, exercise and mind – in order to transform myself from the food-loving, exercising-loathing workaholic I was then to the food-loving, exercise-loving, work-balanced person I am now,” Sally said. “I didn’t do anything too gimmicky. I didn’t set goals, I didn’t make myself accountable to anyone by announcing my intentions or getting myself an exercise buddy. I devised my own interpretation of portion sizes and I DID reward myself with food along the way. I broke all the rules (including the one about how quickly you can lose weight and keep it off - I lost my weight at nearly 1.5kg per week), but I did it. And you can too.”
And her readers enthuse with the following statements:
"I read the entire book over the weekend (got hooked and couldn’t put it down)"
"It was great to see that some of what I was doing you recommend! It was also good to kick start a few new ideas about losing extra weight and moving forward"
"I have just read your book and I am in awe of what you have achieved, and even more so by how you did it. Last year I managed to lose 7kg with the help of an online trainer, however the strict regime made me obsessed with my weight and I felt like I was halfway to an eating disorder. Anyway, I couldn't maintain it and unfortunately I have subsequently regained the weight. I realise now that I have to embrace the lifestyle change (not think of it as a 12 week challenge as my program was) and your book is such an excellent example of how it can be done."
