Thanks to Fahad

24 Nov

So, everyone knows that Fahad went LIVE and it’s great news for all of us.

I want to personally THANK Fahad for the time that he takes to help all of us and answer those questions that we need answered.

Please remember, Fahad is doing this FREE.

He has a business to run and spends alot of his free time giving out tips/advice. We really appreciate it Fahad and thanks for shedding light on diet and exercise and making it not so ‘taboo’ to talk about.

We shouldn’t be ashamed if we have gained a few kilos (or more!!). We should be happy that we realise we need to change. We need to go ‘back to how we were before’.Without you, it might not have been possible. Thanks again.

Fahad has some great articles over on his site on how you can achieve your goal. Be nice to him and always remember to say THANK YOU!

Chilly nights

13 Nov

The nights are getting colder, that’s why it’s so important to warm yourself up before you go to bed! You don’t want to be catching cold when that duvet falls off or when your husband pulls it off you (which is what happens to me).

So, what better way to warm up than with a Spiced Hot Chocolate!

Here’s what you will need!

  • 4 cups prepared hot cocoa with 1% milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 4 cinnamon sticks

It’s so easy…just combine the cocoa, nutmeg and chilli powder. Pour into mugs and serve with a cinnamon stick!

And. for those TryingtobeFahad here’s your calorie count

Per serving: 175 calories; 4 g fat (2 g sat, 1 g mono); 12 mg cholesterol; 30 g carbohydrates; 8 g protein; 1 g fiber; 161 mg sodium; 487 mg potassium.

And mums, this is GREAT for your wee ones!! My mum used to give me half a cup every night and I slept like a baby… right into my teenage years!
