some good ideas to help cut down on calories PDF Print Email

It is not easy at the best of times trying to watch what you eat and shed a few pounds but always harder during the cold months when nothing beats comfort food and that warm glow it gives you inside.  At last it is starting to feel like summer is round the corner - yes, spring can disappear in a heartbeat and we know the weather can be as unpredictable as the.........well, British weather; particularly lately with some extreme examples, however, things have definitely felt warmer lately.


If the weather is better it can be easier to eat better.  A little more salad, a little more fruit - we all know that - but the NHS came up with a few interesting snacks. Suggestions included plenty of cheese, even a cheese and tomato toastie, popcorn and some great ideas for hot chocolate or strawberries and cream and all 100 calories each!

If you are looking to shed a few pounds, worried about your weight or someone elses or need some advice your local pharmacy is a good place to start. You don't need an appointment and can usually have a private consultation.  The pharmacist has a good understanding of the issue and a range of modern programmes and products to help.
