FOLLOWING a healthy lifestyle is not as easy as most people would like to think.
Your body has to adjust to the new eating habits which is why most people quit their diets just a few weeks after starting out.
In recent years, the Banting diet has been popularised by celebrities and individuals who want to lose weight quickly.
Banting was founded by English undertaker William Banting who lived in the 1700s.
He was apparently obese and managed to change his weight when he limited the intake of carbohydrates, especially those of a starchy or sugary nature.
In recent years author Professor Tim Noakes made this diet popular when he featured it in his book, The Real Meal Revolution.
The aim of the diet encourages the body to switch from burning carbs for energy to burning fat.
Most people are busy and do not have the luxury of cooking or making their meals, which is why Sandwich Baron, a food outlet founded by Sally J’Arlette-Joy over two decades ago, have introduced a Banting menu.
Recognising its health benefits, their menu caters for breakfast and lunch and also has banting soap, salads and juice.
The most important rule to remember during dieting is that you should never force food down your throat.
When you are full, stop eating! If you don’t feel like lunch, don’t have it.
