I have tried every diet going and I have lost over four and a half stones since 2011 starting at 21 stone 5 lbs. I still have a long way to go and even though I have lost some weight, at first I found it unbelievably expensive to shop healthily. I have lost my weight to date in a variety of ways; Weight Watchers, Atkins and 5:2 and Slimming World with varying degrees of success. But one thing I can say is that if you are trying any of these, or any other plans, dieting can be expensive and that is why Clever Slimmer was born.
Having a full time job and a young daughter meant that in the beginning my blogging could get sidetracked sometimes and so that’s why earlier this year (2016) I brought in my dad Peter to give me a hand with some of the articles that you see online. With dieting running in the family my dad is well versed on all things slimming having been married to my Mum for almost 40 years and so he is quite the expert!
We discuss regularly what we are going to blog and what we think you would like to know so that we can continue to show you the best offers around on your Clever Slimmer style products but also intersperse these offers with interesting articles, alerts on vouchers as well as how supermarkets and diets are appearing in other media areas. We also intend to give you recipes and ideas that will hopefully make slimming a little bit easier than it can be.
We want to make sure that Clever Slimmer readers get at least one post a day to help them with their weight loss and now we are a team we seem to be able to offer that. It also allows me time to research new diets and get real meaningful information to all of you. I also get chance to tweet additional information to our readers as well so make sure you sign up to our Twitter alerts for news as it happens!!
We hope that this blog will be invaluable to you in saving you money whilst you are trying to lose weight. We are not going to tell you how many points or syns are in each product as we are sure you can find that information elsewhere but we are going to tell you the products which are low calorie and/or healthy and on offer. You will be able to check these against the plan you are using so that you can save money while you are losing weight.
We know the foods you love and the foods you need because we have followed all these plans and we have analysed how supermarkets change prices. So we will alert you to when these items are on offer and where.
We are not biased towards any one supermarket or brand or diet, we are here to serve you, because you are like me, struggling to stay on track when a six pack of full fat Walkers crisps is cheaper than four apples! We want you to succeed and we want you to feel that you can succeed and still save money. Just because we are losing weight why should we feel the pinch in our wallets and purses? Clever Slimmer will make your healthy, weekly slimming shop just as cheap if not cheaper than a basket of junk food!
On top of that we will review new products that are useful to slimmers and check out the best places to eat out. You can find shopping vouchers and look at the various loyalty schemes that will save you money too!
Together we will lose weight and save £’s ! Make sure you tell all your friends and members at the various slimming clubs that we are here. This blog exists to help you. Please spread the word! Be a Clever Slimmer!
