As the excitement builds for the new series of The Great British Bake Off we ask ourselves, do we ditch any attempt to lose weight and just immerse ourselves in the rolling feast of temptation that the programme always promises to deliver?
We’re NOT about the misery of daily restraint and denying yourself any culinary pleasures. We know from research and science-based facts that long term, sustainable weight loss is about enjoying treats, enjoying food, but understanding what you’re eating in order to make sensible choices through small changes.
What sort of choices? Well, avoiding processed foods and getting back to home cooking is a great start: just what The Great British Bake Off does best!
So cake? Why not! Get inspired by The Bake Off and get baking. To get you started, our Dietitian, Sophie Claasens, has come up with this delicious, healthier, cake recipe – enjoy!
