I love this magazine, it's costs just over £2.00 and is jam packed with success stories, recipes, question and answer pages, fashion, make up and inspiration. I've lost eight stone and have always found that by reading other people's success stories I'm encouraged to keep going with the diet and exercise myself. Just reading how happy they are now is enough to get me going.
Rosemary Conley bases her diet program on counting calories and aerobic exercise, the most sensible option if you want to lose weight and keep it off. There are also pages showing you how to do exercises which is useful if you don't have her dvds.
The recipe pages are mouth watering! You won't find the usual dishes of salad and fruit here, oh no. Big, hearty looking meals, low in calories and high in satisfaction. The directions are easy to follow too. Sometimes there are freebies with the magazine, in the current one there is a recipe booklet, full of the best recipes from past issues.
If you want inspiration to lose weight buy this magazine, grab a cup of tea and enjoy reading through, time and time again!
Rosemary Conley is the non-threatening, motherly role model that most overweight women need to inspire them and help them to lose weight without feeling inadequate or disgusting. Her clubs are fab, and her magazine is packed with lovely recipes (all devised by a proper chef, not just made up by the mag editors!), lots of inspiring success stories, psychological analysis features, problem pages and fashion for all figures. It's just great to read about other people who are on the same plan as you are, and take up their tips and suggestions on what to eat, ways to feel full for longer, ways to get over those 'plateau' phases, etc. I also love the menu planners, where they plan out all your meals for a whole 7 days and give you a shopping list to help you when you're at the supermarket. It's a great way to get back onto a 'kickstart' again after a holiday or something - which is often a dieter's greatest danger zone (when you just want to prolong the fun and avoid getting back to reality!). Rosemary herself also writes a regular feature for the back 2 pages of the magazine, giving a lot of sage, honest advice and wisdom. I like the fact that she is an understanding, empathetic person - but she's tough on you when needs be. I can imagine that the people who attend her class are very successful!
Rosemary Conleys slimming magazine is made up of various ingredients such as healthy eating and exercise also information about the Rosemary Conley slimming clubs which has classes all round the country. The best thing in all slimming magazines in my opinion has to be the real life slimming success stories with their before and after photos. This magazine also has a lot of celebrity interviews which is less appealing I feel. Not the best slimming magazine but ok.
Rosemary Conley's Diet and Fitness magazine is a very good magazine. I have purchased it several times now and find it a good read and value for money at £1.95. It contains a full guide to Rosemary Conley diet and fitness clubs throughout the country, exercise routines and tips, recipes and diet plans for you to follow, competitions and my favourite, the inspirational stories from those who have been successfull in losing weight. The success stories show that it is possible to lose weight and give tips on how to succeed with a diet plan. If you are trying to shift some weight, then take a look at this magazine - you'll be inspired.
After having my daughter I needed to lose about a stone in weight. I have never had to diet before, and didn't fancy going to a slimming club to lose the extra pounds. I decided to buy a few slimming magazines to give me some ideas on healthy meals and exercises. The best magazine I found was Rosemary Conleys Health and Fitness magazine. It is £1.95 and packed full of great recipes which don't seem like normal "diet" meals. She tends to use certain lower fat alternatives in recipes, such as Normandy fromage frais instead of cream. I decided to try a few of the recipes and they taste just as good as the real thing. This month the recipes are designed for one person, which I think is much better, as my husband won't eat "rabbit food" as he calls it lol. I really enjoy reading the success stories of other readers. The photos of before and after are amazing and are enough to inspire anyone to lose weight. There are exercise tips for doing at home, and if you want to join the Rosemary Conley club, there is a list of phone numbers of all the clubs. Combined with regular exercise and eating better, I have managed to lose all my pregnancy weight. I still buy the magazine to keep myself on track.
Joking aside, this magazine is really great. I buy it ... which means that I have a few pounds to lose, and it's one of those mags you have to read in one sittin. Once you start to read, you get engrossed. The reason is that there is everything for the person who wants to lose weight (not to mention stay or become fit and healthy) here. Inspirational 'case studies' with before and after piccies, articles, latest news etc. There is always a large section devoted to low calorie recipes and the dishes always look mouth watering and not al all like 'slimming food'. Rosemary usually demonstrates some exercises for particular regions of the body which are excellent, plus there is a listing of all the Rosemary Conley clubs, books and products. A superb title which comes out monthly. The cover is particularly thick and glossy and the calibre of the content is very high.
The Rosemary Conley Diet & Fitness magazine is published every two months. It contains information and tips based around the successful diet and exercise plan devised by Rosemary Conley which centres around a low-fat, calorie conscious diet with regular light aerobic and toning exercise. Every issue follows a similar format usually three features on slimming success stories, an exercise plan, recipes, a couple of celebrity features and a section of advice columns. The slimming stories are quite inspirational and usually involve people who've attended Rosemary Conley diet clubs and lost a substantial amount of weight. They are always accompanied by graphic before and after photos which are the most dramatic part of the article. The exercise plans are a variation on an old theme - if you have any Rosemary Conley videos or books you will recognise the core of the exercise programs here with a new twist. The recipes follow a seasonal theme, for example - summer bar-b-q and picnic food, winter Christmas and party menus. The recipes are easy to follow and are never over complicated or fussy. I tend to find the celebrity features disappointing as they are appear to a thinly veiled celebrity interview with a big dose of 'yes I have figure problems too' which when compared to the 'real life' slimming success stories come across unconvincing however true the statement may be. The advice columns, including ones written by well-known television experts such as Denise Robertson and Dr Hilary Jones, include health, emotions/agony aunt, exercise, nutrition and pets. As you would expect the magazine carries a lot of adverts for other items in the Rosemary Conley range such as books, videos and there is a full directory of her diet & fitness club venues in the UK. This magazine would appeal to both people who enjoy the camaraderie of the slimming diet clubs as well as those who'd rather diet on their own or with a clo
se friend. Because it is so specialist and has a set format it couldn't be published more often than every two months without becoming very monotonous. It is a good magazine to start or quick-start a flagging healthy eating and exercise plan. At £1.95 it represents good value and if you find it particularly useful I would suggest it is worth looking at the subscription offer which is currently £20 for 12 issues and comes with a free hotel accommodation offer.
