In this issue of LOSE IT, we talk about inflammation. It is what’s at the bottom of most diseases, says nutritional therapist Sally-Ann Creed, who shares 20 very doable ways to combat it on page 30. The good news is, what you eat has an extraordinary effect on inflammation in your body, and eating LCHF is the first step in the right direction! Funny Girl Shimmy Isaacs tells us how eating low carb improved her skin as well as increased her mental clarity. Her quality of life and her energy levels have improved so much, she says, she would never dream of eating any other way: ‘Don’t limit yourself by calling it a diet,’ she advises. ‘Call it a new life – you don’t plan on going back to the old one!’ Success is inspiring, but it’s also tricky  – counterintuitively, it can also be what makes us slide back into bad habits. It’s almost as if, when we start feeling healthier and slimmer, we feel we can ‘reward’ ourselves for our efforts – and that can be the start of a slippery slope. Lose It Meal Plan forum facilitator and Banting Buddy Nicky Perks shares her best secrets on how to keep motivated – despite our success! But what if you’re doing all the right things but still not feeling much better or losing weight? Then it might be time to check your thyroid. ‘Is Your Thyroid Making You Fat?’ is a must-read. Diagnosing (and treating) thyroid problems is not easy, but you’ll get an excellent idea where
to start, and what to look out for in the health practitioner you choose to consult.
As usual, there are over 40 brand new and delicious recipes in this issue that are absolutely perfect for summer – from quick midweek suppers (including sushi) to grown-up lunch boxes as well as some really delicious summer ice creams. It’s a great start to a great year! Eating LCHF is not just about the weight-loss (although that is a wonderful side effect!) – it’s about increased energy levels, better sleep and rediscovering your zest for life.
