Lose weight fast

So the holidays are over for another year, and if you’re anything like us you’ve probably over indulged a little bit. If you want to drop the extra weight but you’ve attempted every diet under the sun, maybe it’s time to try out one of our unusual eco-friendly diets to shift those pounds…

SleepingThe Sleep Diet
Yes you read that right – you can sleep yourself thin. The Sleep Diet claims that by getting into a routine to go to sleep and wake up at the same time each day, and by watching your alcohol and caffeine intake, you can actually lose weight. And by turning your lights off that little bit early you’ll also be doing your planet a favour. Sounds like our kind of diet!

The poor man’s diet
FridgeSet yourself a budget for your shopping and only buy the things you need and know you will use. By cutting down on your shopping budget you’ll save money and also curb how many calories pass your lips. You’ll also stop wasting food and money on things that you have to toss out every month.

The unprocessed diet
Unprocessed FoodWe’ve seen many versions of this diet before and it really is very simple – you can eat as much as you like all the time as long as it is fresh and unprocessed. This diet is particularly good for giving your entire body a detox as all that fresh food will do wonders for your skin and digestion too. And because we all know the best fresh food is seasonal fresh food, you’ll be supporting your local stores too.

CyclingThe car-free diet
Instead of cutting out carbs and laying awake at night starving, why not cut out your car instead? Ditch the car and hop on a bike instead. It will save you money on transport, stop you emitting nasty fumes and will also count towards your daily cardio.
