Final weigh in – Happy Heart

The final results have been independently checked and verified and I can announce that I have lost a grand total of 2lbs on the Happy Heart Plan, my other measurements all stayed the same.  With these rather disappointing results I don’t think I’ll be revisiting the plan, however read my blog ‘The Post-mortem – Happy Heart’ for…

The post-mortem – Happy Heart

Today is my last day on the Happy Heart Plan and, unless a miracle happens on the scales tomorrow, I think it’s fair to say it hasn’t work for me.  Whilst I applaud the concept of the low fat wholefood plant based diet, and the recipes provided are delicious and simple, I haven’t been able…

3rd weigh in – Happy Heart

Yippee, 1lb off this week! Many (including leaders of a few weight loss clubs I’ve been to) would not be happy with a 1lb loss but I always feel happy when I lose. I am now ready to tackle my last week on the Happy Heart plan and start thinking about what diet I will…

Online lectures week 2 – Happy Heart

I was naughty last week and didn’t watch the Happy Heart Happy Pear online lectures for week two.  Could my lack of engagement with the plan be one of the reasons why I didn’t lose any weight this week?  I am a very all or nothing kind of a person so I’m sure it’s not…

1st weigh in – Happy Heart

Drum roll please! This morning was my first weigh in on the Happy Heart Plan and I am pleased to say that I have lost another pound. As always with me this could have been more if I could just rein it in a bit at the weekends.  This Saturday I had friends round for…

When you sign up for the Happy Heart course you are given access to a large amount of online content; recipes and rules of the plans, along with online lectures. New lectures are released each week and tend to consist of a five minute video on the topic, presented by Stephen and David, some text…

First impressions – Happy Heart

Two days into the Happy Heart programme and already I feel so much more comfortable with the plan than I did with Weight Watchers.  This is in no small part because it is designed by Vegans (well 99% Vegans) for Vegans and because you can eat as much as you like (within the guidelines) which…

12 diets, 12 months – Happy Heart

So today I must leave Weight Watchers behind me and start the second of my twelve diets in twelve months. This month I have decided to follow the Happy Heart plan.  This is a four week online course which was originally designed to help reduce cholesterol but now claims to help with the reduction of…
