Shopping online

We were interested to hear on television this month that people are finding that online supermarket shopping is helping them in the battle against weight loss. It seems that without the temptations of walking down the aisles and the waft of freshly baked bread that people were able to shop without giving in to so many treats and temptations. Perhaps online food shopping is the way forward but does the fact that it means we are staying at home more and therefore less active outweigh the benefits - please let us have you thoughts.


Change your lifestyle NLP and Life coaching experts, seminars to help control your weight and much more can be found on our Life Coach Pages.

If you are obese, work can present a variety of problems – not least from third party prejudice and self-confidence.
