Emma and Tony Scrivener, their daughter Katie Thomas and Katie’s husband Shaun Thomas decided to slim down after Christmas following their own diet which turned out to be very effective.

Their diet plan is easy to follow and to stick to.

It encourages portion control and healthy eating habits and has a long list of permitted foods as well as plenty of recipe inspiration.

With their diet idea, they created DA Group, a £1million business that also sells pharmaceutical grade products to support weight loss.

But how does it work?

The Advanced Diet Plan is all about eating healthy, tasty foods that have been selected to keep slimmers fuller for longer.

This translated into losing weight without feeling too hungry.

Dieters get three balanced meals a day with snacks in between.

They also received the Approved Foods List to help guide them in selecting the best foods and a ‘DA Classics Recipe Book’ with recipes for inspiration.

The family of slimmers shared their top tips for losing weight in the new year.

1. Decide why you want to lose weight and write it down.

Looking back at this can help you stay focused.

2. Eliminate temptation

Give yourself a fighting chance by clearing out your “naughty food” cupboard. Replace items with healthier snack options.

3. Don’t skip breakfast

Get into the habit of eating breakfast. Set a regular morning wake-up and make time for a healthy meal. This will prevent you from snacking mid-morning and overeating at lunch

4. Have protein with every meal

Proteins take a while to digest, keeping you feeling fuller for longer. This stops you from snacking between meals. Eggs, lean meat, seafood, cheese, nuts, beans, and pulses are perfect.

5. Keep a food diary

Keeping track has a significant effect on your weight loss – it has been shown that people who keep a food diary lose twice as much compared to those who don’t… and they keep it off.

6. Keep yourself busy

Being busy takes your mind off food. Try something to distract yourself – a new hobby, learning a new skill, reading a book, going for a brisk walk or catching up with friends/family.

7. Limit alcohol

Alcohol is calorie laden, makes us feel hungry and also impairs our judgement. Your body tends to burn alcohol off first too, so any food you consume may end up on your tummy and hips.

8. Control your portions

Our perception of a portion has grown over the years, so shrink your plate and portion size. Measure recommended food quantities for a week and relearn the basics.

9. Eat less:

• Refined carbs (like white bread, potatoes, rice and pasta): They are preferentially converted into energy, storing as fat if they aren’t used up.

• Fast foods: Full of saturated fats, added sugars and excess salt.

• Processed foods and snacks.

• Sweetened drinks and fruit juices.

10. Eat more whole grains, lean proteins, colourful vegetables, pulses and low-fat dairy.

11. Record your weight

You are more likely to lose weight successfully and keep on track if you weigh yourself regularly. Do it once a week, first thing in the morning to avoid the daily fluctuations.

12. Get help and support

Join a group of like-minded individuals and you are three times more likely to succeed. Find a community to motivate and keep you on your weight loss journey.

DA Group co-founder Emma Scrivener said: “We’re aware that many people will start 2022 wanting to lose weight.

“The Christmas period, coupled with the effects of lockdown and working from home, has left many people with extra pounds they want to shed.

“We know from experience the frustrations that can come from weight gain – and the joy of managing to achieve your weight loss goal.

“These tips pull together the basic principles that helped us on our weight loss journeys, and have helped our members stick to their diets, lose weight and keep the weight off.”
