The power of 'no'

Android, one of our health bloggers, has not just learnt to say 'no' to empty calories, but also to people who are pushing their luck.


Over the months Android has shared with us how she learnt to say “no” to empty calories, “no” to a sedentary lifestyle and “no” to discouragement when it came to shedding the excess kilograms that were weighing down her life.

But it hasn’t stopped there. Read how this blogger has taken her new-found assertiveness into other areas of her life, and the freedom she’s found in knowing just when to say “no”.

Android also gives some practical advice on the benefits of low-GI eating, and how her body has adjusted over time to find low-GI foods preferable to sugary and fatty foods.
