THE DIET STARTS...MONDAY.
Well I’m a classic offender. I will put off starting a new healthy eating regime until Monday morning – telling myself it is symbolic of new starts and new beginnings….when in fact it really means I’m allowing myself a few extra days to enjoy those naughtier foods in life!
And I know I’m not alone when it comes to choosing Monday as the day I will start a new diet.
Stuck for ideas for Father’s Day? Then how about rustling up a tasty curry to show how much you care - but without jeopardising your weight loss plans!

Here is a delicious recipe for Lamb Biryani. Why not give it a try? Or check out the recipe section of our website for other ideas, including Chicken Butternut Curry, or even a Thai Green Curry if Thai is more your thing.

Slimavite’s expert nutritionist, Melanie, explains: “For healthy skin, the best place to start is not by spending a fortune on the latest creams – but by looking at what you are eating.
“A varied and balanced diet that is packed with fresh fruit and vegetables, and rich in vitamins and minerals, will help keep skin healthy, as well as helping to improve your overall health and wellbeing.

Slimavite is actively supporting World Heart Day, which this year aims to encourage people across the globe to take charge of heart health – starting at home.
Slimavite’s expert nutritionist, Melanie Bibby, explains: “Heart health is a huge issue in the UK and so we are encouraging parents to recognise the major part they play in the long term health of their children, particularly in relation to the meals, cooking and exercise habits they pass down.”
