LighterLife has announced that it holds the secret to taking years off a person’s looks, adding years to their life and how to feel 20 something for the rest of their days, and with the launch of the BMI4Life campaign it plans to let others in on the secret too.

The secret to not only looking younger and being healthy inside and out, amounts to three simple little words: Body Mass Index (BMI). Obesity reduces life expectancy on average by 11 years and is responsible for 9,000 premature deaths a year*, making reaching and maintaining a healthy BMI the key to living a long, healthy and vibrant life.


LighterLife Podcast Presents Carole Malone Talking About Her Weight Loss Journey

Carole Malone, celebrity and News of the World journalist, has spoken out about her LighterLife weight loss journey on Inside LighterLife the company’s monthly podcast. Thousands of people across the country will listen to Carole’s story of how she dropped three dress sizes in three months. She tells how Jackie Llewelyn-Bowen inspired her to join LighterLife after seeing her on GMTV and how easy she found LighterLife Total.

Carole began LighterLife Total in October 2009 and admits going to her counsellor Jill Bonney with the ‘wrong attitude’. She said she was grumpy at her first LighterLife session and realised by the fourth day of Total that food had control over her. She met up with Jill and recognised that she wasn’t the only one feeling that way, everyone in the group was in the same boat.

Carole said: “I was desperate having tried and failed every diet over the past 25 years. I needed something radical, I was out of control. I also wasn’t prepared to take a whole year losing three stone on another weight loss programme. When I got on the scales after the first week I lost a whole dress size – the immediate results were motivating and also seeing everyone else in the group lose weight kept me going.”

According to a recent survey by weight loss specialist LighterLife, 62% of overweight women prefer to be under the covers before their partner comes to bed whilst 46% of overweight men would rather avoid sex all together.

Whilst the overweight and obese women surveyed made sure their bodies were firmly out of sight by having sex with the light off (32%), getting undressed before their partner comes to bed (42%) or keeping the bedcovers or nightclothes firmly on (43%), the men preferred to avoid hopping into the sack all together.

The figures emerged in a study of the bedroom habits of 3,000 Brits, which also revealed that more than one in ten obese people haven’t had sex for a year because they are so worried about being seen naked and 8% of obese people claimed they couldn’t remember the last time they had sex. A massive 98% of size 16+ women stated they felt unattractive, and while 68% of obese people said they have never felt sexy, just 12% of those with a normal BMI said the same.

LighterLife has revealed that British women are the most overweight in Europe and British men tip the scales as the third fattest, according to the average European body mass index (BMI).

In the lead up to BMI 4 Life, a campaign highlighting the life-and-death importance of BMI, an alarming survey published in the newsletter of the French National Institute of Demographic studies has shown that British women on average have a BMI of 26.2, which is considered overweight.

French women have a BMI of 23.2, the lowest in the EU, but tend to worry more about being fat than those in any other EU country. Typically, British woman are overweight but convinced they are slim, highlighting the fact that many people don’t know what BMI means and have no idea how it is measured.

Unsurprisingly, the survey suggests that men across the EU are less concerned about their weight than women, although out of the 15 member countries only French and Dutch men fall within the ideal weight range, with the rest being overweight.

The BMI 4 Life campaign, which is being championed by weight-management experts LighterLife, aims to highlight the very real dangers associated with excessive weight gain and the importance of reaching and maintaining a healthy BMI.

LighterLife is once again teaming up with The Stroke Association and is encouraging members of the public to get involved and show they care by visiting and posting a message on the LighterLife website, taking a quiz and passing it onto their friends to help LighterLife increase awareness and raise money for The Stroke Association.

Sara Jamison, CEO at LighterLife said: “We are excited about supporting The Stroke Association and are encouraging everyone to post their messages of support, take the quiz, learn more about the risks associated with stroke and pass the message onto their friends to raise thousands of pounds for this very worthwhile charity.”

Sara added: “More people than you realise are at risk of having a stroke and being overweight can increase this risk. Carrying extra weight around the waist is particularly dangerous as it increases the risk of stroke, heart disease and some cancers threefold.”

Andrea Lane, Media Manager for The Stroke Association, said: “Many people don’t realise that a stroke is a brain attack that happens when the blood supply to the brain is cut off and brain cells die. As the brain controls everything we do, think and feel the damage can be devastating. Being obese can increase your risk of stroke by over 30 per cent so it is vital we all maintain a healthy body weight and a good diet.”
