Review: Rosemary Conley’s Low Fat Hip and Thigh Diet

Elastigirl : Does my butt look big in this superhero suit?

Well, we did it! Elastigirl and I lost 1lb 12oz on the Hip and Thigh Diet. I'm sure Rosemary Conley would be pleased. Or if not, at least I am. It's like the 80s all over again 🙂

Beginning weight: 211 lbs
Ending weight: 209.2 lbs

So how was the Hip and Thigh Diet?

With all the unfashionableness of low fat diets now that Atkins and Paleo are big, you'd be forgiven for thinking they didn't work, but of course they still do. Perhaps not as well as when I was a teenager, but sadly I don't think that's the diet's fault!

The Low Fat Food

The food wasn't bad. It's easy to find low fat versions of dairy products especially, as well as cheap and convenient fruit like apples, bananas and satsumas.

And I really appreciated the convenience of the packed lunch options, as well as being reminded of the fabulousness of the jacket potato. I'm sure it's no coincidence that this diet came along just after the microwave oven!

Feeling Hungry?

I felt hungry at times, but also felt lighter, so I didn't mind because I felt like the diet was working.

Does My Bum Look Big in this Superhero Suit?

Does my bum look big in this superhero suit? If there's anything we can learn from The Incredibles' Elastigirl in this video clip (which I think has been edited and exaggerated too!) it's this:

  1. Everyone would check out their 'rear view' in a superhero suit, and
  2. Most of us probably think our problem areas are more obvious than they are 🙂

It's fine 🙂 There's a world out there to save - don't stress about the suit! And remember, "You are Elastigirl!":

A Diet for Elastigirl, the Incredibles’ Superhero Mom

This week's diet, in the run up to Thanksgiving, is for that most overstretched superhero mom of all, Elastigirl from The Incredibles.

Not only does she have a busy life with her three superhero kids, but she is the only grown up voice of reason left, and then still has to suit up and save the day.

It's a very appropriate character for the rest of us superhero moms in a holiday week 🙂

And what a suit!
