BOOTCAMP

Vicky Hitchens - 07779 646945 www.fatlossbootcampessex.co.uk

Have you ever been on a diet? Are you on a diet now? Did you get the body you wanted or are you back to where you started? Perhaps despite all the dieting you actually feel fatter than ever? It’s not your fault…. DIETS DON’T WORK! There are so many myths, lies and conflicting advice on health and nutrition that’s given out on a daily basis. To be honest, if you are totally confused then I’m not surprised as I think most people are! Everyone is trying to sell you something so it seems they will tell you anything to get you to buy it… “Eat what you like except on a Wednesday” “6 Minute Abs” Extreme Calorie Restriction, Diet Pills, Shakes, Bars… The list is endless!

Faddy diets, hours of exercising and starvation DO NOT WORK! These ‘diets’ fail because they are not sustainable and they actually slow down your metabolism making it harder and harder to continue to lose fat meaning you will almost certainly put all the weight back on and more as soon as you stop the ‘diet’… sound familiar? You need to adapt your lifestyle to a healthier one with a simple, easy to follow plan that will speed up your metabolism and work LONG TERM! THE FIRST PROBLEM: Foods that form the main part of our diets today are full of chemicals, additives, colourings and preservatives many of which have been proven

to create health problems and disease; yet somehow they still find their way into our foods. These chemicals are ‘toxic’ to your body, they are transported and deposited in your fat stores to reduce their circulation throughout your body. When you eat toxic foods your body holds onto its fat stores as this is where all these harmful toxins are being dumped.

So… Excess toxins = Excess fat stores When you stop eating foods that contain toxins, the stored toxins will be excreted along with fat & excess water. Not only does this result in fat loss but you’ll be AMAZED at how energised it makes you feel! What’s the best way to get these toxins out of my body so I can start burning fat…? Mini Detox! Once you’ve got rid of all those toxins that are making your body and metabolism very sluggish you will be surprised at just how quickly your body shape will change and you will feel lighter, healthier and with so much energy you’ll feel 10 years younger! I want to be clear, by detox I DO NOT mean calorie restriction and living on weird shakes and drinks! I mean eating healthy, clean food that will provide your body with the nutrients it needs for optimum health I am giving away 100 copies of my “7 Day Detox” FREE to the first 100 people here: www.fatlossbootcampessex.co.uk/instructors/detox (During this 7 Day Detox period you can expect to lose up to 7lbs and 3 inches off your waist!) Forget ‘faddy diets’ and get yourself fit and healthy the fun and easy way!

Essex Gardening Section You’re Gardening Problems... Solved! by Sharon Longshaw

Q. Is it possible to grow a Magnolia tree/shrub in pots or tubs?. If so what size pot should be used? A.Yes, it’s highly possible to grow magnolia in pots, especially if you have a sheltered area away from frost that’s in sun or part shade. Select a pot grown, small tree, Magnolia grandiflora ‘Galissonniere’ would be a good choice. Choose a container only slightly larger that the pot it was grown in (you can always pot-on in a couple of years or so). Ensure good drainage by adding broken pots etc to the bottom of the pot. They will grow much better in acidic soil, Azalea or Camellia potting mix should be fine. Use a slow release fertilizer once a year, stating approx 6 months after potting. The surface roots are very easily damaged so best to avoid planting bulbs etc in the container. Q. I have inherited a garden with some old climbing roses that have all their growth at the top and long thick woody stems. When can I prune them and how low should I go? A. I’ve had the best luck for many years of spring pruning just as the lower part of the bush begins to green up. In your case, I’d recommend severe pruning. Rose bushes are hardy and difficult to damage by pruning. All of the wood, dead old stems should be removed, and all crossing canes should be pruned back to encourage air circulation and

give better shape to your bushes. Additionally, I’ve had really good results in fertilization the roses by using the rose “spikes” one pushes into the ground around the base. One only has to do it once per season and the balance of the constituents is well designed for rose needs. Q. I have a persistent intruder in my garden who sits under a bush and tries(sometimes successfully) to catch the birds visiting my bird table. I’ve tried all sorts, smelly plants, prickly plants and an electronic cat scarer. I’m the only one who can actually hear the cat scarer the cat curls up opposite it. Anymore ideas please? A. Sprinkle mothballs - available from most hardware stores - round the base of the table. The whiff of camphor should offend the cat’s delicate nose, and keep him away. Or try a water pistol for a more direct approach .. Meow! If you have any gardening questions please email Sharon@southendgardener.co.uk and I will answer as many as I can here over the coming months. When asking a question please give me as many details as possible and attach a photo if you can. Provided by Flower Power Garden Services www.southendgardener.co.uk 01702 305554

There have been various Charity Events including Barn Dance, a Family Member James shaving all over his body for Charity and Friend Andy not Foot shaving for a month, also the Island Football Club arranged a Walk for Danny recently all raising money for the charity. There are many more events being scheduled and will be announced as soon as confirmed details available including Indian nights, Family days out, Fire & Ice walking, Sky Dives, Paint Balling, Charity Runs etc. We would love to see as many people as possible in the local community supporting this tiny charity in anyway.
