12 simple food swaps to keep you on track this winter
One of the philosophies of the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge that we abide by is that ‘it’s what you do most of the time that matters’ and this is very true in winter time.
Basically what it means is that if, most of the time, you are making healthy choices with your meals and snacks, you will see the weight loss results you are after.
With this in mind, we wanted to give you twelve simple swaps that you can make this winter to help you lose weight (despite the fact that most people gain weight over winter).
