Foot Friendly ShoesOne of the three essential ingredients to losing weight and keeping it off for life is having the right shoes for your feet.
When you wear shoes that fit your feet and are approved by podiatrists for preventing and relieving foot problems, being as active as you need to be to lose weight and keep it off forever is much easier.
Here are some examples of shoes that are approved by Harry my podiatrist versus shoes that aren't.

"YOUR ADVICE WAS A GODSEND. I am doing well in the weighting (waiting) game - I had lost 8kg by Xmas & have still kept it off. Your advice on letting yourself stabilise & sit on that plateau was a godsend – I stayed on my 3kg loss for ages & ages but did not lose faith this time - I just kept doing exactly what I had been doing then all of a sudden it was off again - mind you I was doing everything in my power to help it along, which I think eventually paid off!!! I still have a lot more to go but I will be happy to lose it a few kgs at a time. "
