  1. I’m eating healthily but still can’t lose weight

    Comment
    Article by Dr Khandee Ahnaimugan If you think you’ve got a healthy diet but still want to lose weight in your 50s, the first thing I’d focus on is portion sizes. Most people can’t believe that they can really reduce portion sizes without feeling hungry. They are often shocked to find, over the course of a weight loss programme, how much less they are eating at the end of it. It’s often 1/3 less, sometimes 1/2 less, and in some cases even less. How can this be? It’s because you’ve got stuck in certain habits of eating, and don’t realise what you’re doing. It becomes the new normal, and you think it’s how much your body needs. So how do we go about reducing portion sizes? Here are a few quick tips. How to Reduce Portion...
  2. The Best January Weight Loss Plan

    Comment
    Article by Dr Khandee Ahnaimugan It’s January and you’ve decided that 2014 is the year that you finally get a grip on your weight. Of course, you could do the usual. Look for the newest, most popular diet of the moment. But where has this ever got you? It’s time to rethink your approach. With most diets, the underlying principle is drastically cutting back what you eat for a few weeks in the hopes of losing some weight. Instead of this short-term focus, what you need to do is create habits that keep working for the long-term. 6 Tips to lose weight the right way in the New Year So, with that in mind, here are 6 tips for the right way to lose weight in the New Year. 1.  No more deadlines If you’re...
  3. 8 Tips for Losing Weight Naturally for Women over 50

    10
    Article by Dr Khandee Ahnaimugan MBChB MMed Here are 8 tips for losing weight that don’t involve dieting or deprivation. 1. Small changes. When most people think of losing weight, they think of throwing everything in their fridge in the rubbish and following some food plan that is the complete opposite to their usual menu. Is this really likely to lead to long-term weight loss? Of course not. Instead of drastic changes, make small ones. Why not try cutting back your portion sizes by 10%? Keep focussed on small changes that you know you can live with. That’s the key to long-term success. 2. Understand the truth about exercise. Don’t be surprised, upset or angry that despite sweating it out at the gym several times a week, your weight isn’t falling. For women over 50,...
  4. How to Lose Weight After Your Summer Holiday

    Article by Dr Khandee Ahnaimugan MBChB MMed How many times have you come back from your summer holiday and promised to take action? But a few weeks later, you’re back to old habits and your weight is inching back up again? This is a very common scenario so you’re certainly not alone. In fact, considering that two-thirds of the population in our society are overweight or obese, it’s probably fair to say that most people have no idea how to manage their weight. So if you want to get a different result to most people, you need to do things differently. Here are 4 steps to successful post-holiday weight loss.   1. Think months instead of weeks. Most people looking to lose weight after their holiday want to lose weight as quickly as possible. Who...
  5. 5 Top Tips for Losing Weight over 50

    15
    Article by Dr Khandee Ahnaimugan The most common thing I hear from women over 50 who are trying to lose weight is that diets that used to work (at least in the short-term) in their twenties, thirties and forties stop working once they’re into their fifties. Does this mean that women over 50 can’t lose weight? Absolutely not. What it does mean is that you need to change your approach. Here’s how: 1. Understand what successful weight loss really is. The fact is, as people get older, it takes longer to lose weight. If you’re 53, you can’t expect to lose weight at the same rate as a 23 year old. That might seem like a bad thing, but it’s really not. Because losing weight fast is not the...
  6. Doing all the Right Things and Still Can’t Lose Weight?

    15
    Article by Dr. Khandee Ahnaimugan (Dr. K) Here is a question I was recently asked: I am 53 and have been dieting since I was 14 I am bigger now than I have ever been and yet I watch what I eat and I exercise twice a week. Why is this? Is there anything more frustrating than feeling like you’re doing all the right things and still not getting anywhere? And yet the situation described in this situation is so common, especially for women over 50. How can it be? As I see it there are two parts to this question. The first part is the “watching what I eat” and the second part is “exercising twice a week”. Most people would consider these two actions to be the cornerstone of...
