MagWatch: New Idea 7 January 2013
Any given time of year there’s always a weight loss story to be found in the magazines at your local newsagent. But at New Year’s, the shelves just explode with diet tips and celeb success stories. It’s ace.
Seems us greedy consumers will gobble up any morsel of diet advice these mag editors care to dish up. I know I will.
New Idea this week has Kerri-Anne Kennerley, Natalie Bassingthwaite (cute baby bump and all) and Vogue Williams on the cover. Plus the promise: your best body for 2013. Who wouldn’t want that, eh?
Inside we see our celebrity pals posing in bikinis poolside and sharing their tips.
Kerri-Anne Kennerley: cut back on carbs
Natalie Bassingthwaite: fresh fruit, vegetables and very few carbs
Kate Waterhouse: I only eat till I’m full
Jaynie Seal (who?): a big breakfast of egs, broccoli, cabbage, capsicum, spinach and onion (sounds gross)
Vogue Williams: mix up your exercise
But wait! That’s not all. We also get the new Dash Diet, sadly not affiliated with Kardashians.
This eating plan was recently voted the healthiest diet in America. Yippee. In Phase One, the first two weeks you eat vegies and protein and avoid starch and sugar. Phase two sees reintroduction of those bad boys, carbs. Sounds like everything we’ve all heard before! But still, perhaps hearing this for the thousandth time it might just sink in.
Ps. Guilty confession: I just ate a whole lot of Lindt chocolates my mother in law bought for my kids.
