Are you ready for weight loss?

You’ve decided to lose weight and are raring to go, but are you really ready to go on a diet? Test yourself.

Are you really overweight (i.e. does your body mass index exceed 25)?

Do you suffer from any of the following: diabetes, insulin resistance, heart disease, gout, arthritis, kidney disease, hypertension, polycystic ovarian syndrome?

Do you have an under- or overactive thyroid?

Are you tense, anxious, distracted, overworked or depressed?

Do you really feel capable of revolutionising your food intake and exercise routine?

Is it your decision to lose weight, and not someone else’s?

Do you live on your own, purchase your own groceries and do your own cooking?

Can a weight-loss diet and exercise programme become part of your routine, even at work?
