A good friend of mine (who also lost a significant amount of weight) caught it last night and said the host, Paul McKenna actually had some interesting insights. His 4 Golden Rules of Weight Loss are…
- Eat whenever you are hungry
- Eat only what you want, never what you think you ‘should’
- Eat consciously and enjoy every mouthful
- Stop when you even think your body is full
I agree with him to a point, but #2 bugs me a bit. I mean if we all knew what we SHOULD be eating most of us wouldn’t need to lose weight in the first place. Right? Now 1, 3 and 4 are ok in my book. You shouldn’t be starving yourself, you should enjoy what you eat and you need to stop eating when you’re full. Got it. But how does HE make ME thin? I mean the title REALLY bugs me. Maybe I’m getting bitter in my old age, but it seems like a big marketing ploy to get you to watch. Kind of like “Lose 10 pounds in 10 days”, “Drop 2 dress sizes this week” or my personal favorite, “Eat what ever you want and still lose weight” campaigns.
So I really can’t give my opinion on the show as I haven’t seen it but I would love to hear your reviews. I’m going to try and catch it next week.
Off to watch Medium!
Update:xamcx posted her thoughts on the WeightWatchen Boards and I thought it was a good idea to get some good conversations going with those that have seen the show. Please feel free to join in the conversation.
