How Did Binky Lose Weight

What Diet Pills Did Binky Use

The press have been circulating stories of yet another celebrity weight loss story. This time its the turn of Made In Chelsea starlet Alexandra Felstead, AKA Binky.

The Sun newspaper have called her weight loss regime the ‘worlds most expensive diet‘ as the proposed culmination of her New Year Detox programme is said to cost in excess of of £5,000 – all this in an attempt to lose just half a stone.

A large part of her weight loss detox regime will be spent on personal trainers, dieticians and fitness coaches – the programme is targeted to last a month.

Binky has admitted to participating in over indulgence recently and plans to cut back on fatty foods and booze. Her tailored diet is said be costing a whopping £150 per day – and has been christened the Posh Cleanse Diet.

“It’s helped shrink my stretched Christmas stomach; I’ve been eating less because I’m not craving so often.” – Binky on Fullfast

What Diet Pills Did Binky Use

Rumours are also abound that Binky employed the use of diet pills in conjunction with her elaborate weight loss plan – the rumours appear to be half true as Binky has attributed a large part of her diet success to an appetite suppressant called Fullfast.

Fullfast is not a diet pill as such but an appetite suppressing oral spray that contains Griffonia, a source of Serotonin that controls the feeling of being full.

This the second time in recent months that Fullfast has featured in media – The Daily Mail ran an article recently entitled “the new natural spray that tackles food craving”.

In addition to Griffonia the formula also contains Klamath Algae, that has a positive physiological effects on mood – plus another ingredient called Guarana, a stimulant which is twice as powerful as caffeine.

Recent study has shown that guarana could affect how quickly the body perceives itself to be full, which in turns helps to control appetite and maintains an ideal body weight.

2012 New Diet Fads Not Sustainable

Dieting Is Proving Too Difficult To Sustain

Latest media reports are indicating that a large number of people that vowed to embark on some sort of diet or weight loss regime for the new year had all but given up. An estimated 9 out of every 10 dieters that took some sort of weight pledge for the new year have reverted back to old habits.

Just over 2.5 million people vowed to lose weight for 2012 – now under a fortnight into the new year only 250,000 remain committed.

Approximately 40 per cent of slimmers admitted that they reverted back to type just a few days in with around 60% revealing that a sunday roast was the catalyst for stopping.

Why is so hard to maintain a diet when now more than any other time have we (in the UK and western world) got access to so many different diet products, weight loss plans and slimming techniques.

Maybe the problem lies herewith, there is just too much choice and too much confusion.

The main reasons cited for quitting a diet are:

  • Hunger – the number one reason, some slimmers think just by not eating it is the solution.
  • Boredom – again, another highly touted reason is thinking eating can solve boredom.
  • Temptation – deprivation makes food even more appealing.
  • Alcohol –  a boozy night out often leads to the munchies.

The bottom line is that dieting is not easy and without some sort of clear goal failure is the most likely outcome. Will-power or rather lack of it plays a major part.

Most diets fail because the participant is at best confused or at worst completely mystified with the rules laid out. If its just complicated to get your head around dont bother, move on to something else.

The best type of diet in our opinion that has ever been created is one designed not to restrict or limit yourself unrealistically. Dont embark on something that you  know deep down there is no chance of seeing through to the bitter end – because there is no bitter end, a successful diet needs to be adopted for life.

All diets work to some degree choose one that you are comfortable with and stick to it. If you need some assistance with will-power there is always the diet pill option.  As our main focus is very much geared towards the diet pill here is a run down of the popular diet pills for 2012.

UK Women Are The Fattest In Europe

The latest figures released and published in the Daily Mail suggest that British women are the the fattest in Europe, with British men coming second in the male competition.

These figures although not a total shock are a bit of surprise – its a surprise that Britain has come first at something (although our men did finish second).

Other noteworthy mentions go to Greece with both men and women scoring 17.6% – although with the new austerity measures taking hold in Greece it is likely that these figures would improve over the next few months.

Romania and Italy were the countries least affected by Obesity.

Denmark, Ireland, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Finland and Sweden were not involved in the survey for reasons better known to themselves.

How Are The Results Calculated

The results are calculated and based on on the Body Mass Index (BMI), where the weight in kilos is divided by the square of the height in metres.

A body mass index of between 18.5 and 24.9 is generally accepted to be considered healthy, while a measurement over 25 is overweight and higher than 30 indicates obesity.
