Lauren Goodger, like Instagram influencers the world over, is posting sponsored posts about a weight loss programme. In Lauren’s case, it’s Skinny Coffee Club, a weight loss plan based around a coffee drink that promises to decrease hunger, increase metabolism, motivate and energise while it enhances stamina and fitness. And according to Lauren, it works: “…it’s my third week of Skinny Coffee Club’s Super Skinny Bundle and I’ve lost another 3lbs! So that’s 12lbs in 3 weeks!!” For reference, according to the US CDC, evidence shows that people who lose weight gradually and steadily (about 1 to 2 pounds per week) are more successful at keeping weight off. Lauren is convinced though: “My body is really starting to change now, my clothes feel baggier and all my mates have noticed the difference.

Universal Credit is leaving women, particularly single mums, thousands of pounds out of pocket. Lone parents, 90 percent of whom are women, are losing between £800 to £2,000 per year at least due to the Tories' cruel scheme. Research shows 3.2million families will be down £48 per week as the scheme is expanded throughout the country. Families have told of how they've been left with just 74p to live on while a little nine-year-old girl phoned a charity looking for work after her dad lost his job and was left penniless as he waited for his first payment. Women in abusive or controlling relationships are also at an increased risk as the scheme could allow abusers to cut off their access to cash, making them financially dependent.

WHEN it comes to weight loss plans, most of us think of calorie-controlled meals and super restrictive diets. But it looks like it doesn't all have to be this way, here's everything you need to know about reverse dieting... What is reverse dieting and is it safe? Reverse dieting turns normal weight loss plans on their head. Instead of cutting back on calories and pounding the pavements, reverse dieters gradually increase their food intake to effectively re-invigorate their metabolism. After all, not eating enough and over-exercising can actually hinder your weight loss as the metabolism starts to slow down and struggles to burn calories. Popular among bodybuilders, it's only a "diet" because it involves closely measuring your food intake.
