1984 game Tetris has become the latest revival for weight loss. Weightmasters comment on the article.

Apiplex contains Konjac Glucomannan which when taken daily, contributes to the reduction of body weight in the context of an energy restricted diet. (An approved Health Claim from the European Health Food Authority).

The 1984 game Tetris has been revived for weight loss. According to researchers from Plymouth University, playing Tetris keeps cravings at bay for longer periods reports Daily Mail on 21st February 2014. The game distracts the player’s brain so that they do not visualise snacks, alcohol or cigarettes reports the Daily Mail on 21st February 2014.

The research commissioned by Domino’s Pizza, revealed that 24 per cent of the volunteers experienced weaker cravings. According to researchers, PhD student Jessica Skorka-Brown, Professors Jackie Andrade and Jon May, these findings could mean a solution to managing people that struggle with diets.

Professor Andrade stated, “Episodes of cravings normally only last a few minutes, during which time an individual is visualising what they want and the reward it will bring... But by playing Tetris, just in short bursts, you are preventing your brain creating those enticing images and without them the craving fades.” (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-2564993/Want-lose-weight-Play-TETRIS-Classic-game-distracts-dieters-food-cravings.html).

Though it may help with weight loss, one in seven gamers confessed to relieving themselves into empty bottles just to avoid having to leave the room.

Following this, Weightmasters comment, “Distraction can be a useful tool to changing one’s habits, including changing your eating habits. Saying this however, although Tetris distracts the individual from reaching for food; it can also encourage a sedentary lifestyle. Achieving a healthy weight, should be about eating the right foods and trying to be more active.”

Weightmasters has recently introduced Apiplex. The product is provided in powdered form. The recommended daily consumption is one teaspoon, 3 times a day, diluted with water or juice and taken before mealtimes.

Apiplex contains Konjac Glucomannan which when taken daily, contributes to the reduction of body weight in the context of an energy restricted diet. (An approved Health Claim from the European Health Food Authority). Other ingredients include Psyllium Husk and Green Tea.
