The health advocate discussed a key weight loss and fitness approach she suggests for slimming down and sustaining progress.
Carly said: “It’s asking people what we can add-in, which works really well.”
She explained diets often focus on taking food away, instead of adding foods in.
“People never think to add stuff in but that means people can still have their wine and still have the alcohol, but they’re adding in some new things that they weren’t doing before which can generally make a big change.”

“However, some people really struggle. In that case, just try one new thing every week.”
The wellness aficionado explained why this method works for her clothes.
She said: “If you add in new things, the old things are slowly going to get pushed out without you realising because you won’t have the space or were we thinking about them so much.”
