How to survive thanksgiving without putting on the weight.... Written by Brits in LA trainer Ricky parcell

I don’t keep cookies, bread or sweets in the house!!!! Do you?!!! I would eat them all. TEMPTATION! At the holidays, I limit my intake of certain foods because I merely enjoy eating them too much. I get out the small plates. I change up my meal timing and I alter my training routines.

MEET A MEMBER - JOANNA GARZILLI


Meet from London, Joanna Garzilli who moved to LA 10 years ago to pursue the healing arts and entertainment industry....

Was there a particular reason you chose LA?
I chose LA because I found the people very open-minded, spiritual and progressive. When I had an idea to do something and I bounced the idea off of someone in LA, they’d say, “That’s great! How can I help?” In London, the response was more likely to be, “You don’t want to do that. Don’t waste your time. It’ll never work.” California allowed me to dream my ideas into reality through a strong support network.

What do you miss most from home?
I miss my family, hanging out with my best friends, BBC Radio 1, British MTV, the Chinese and Indian restaurants, real custard, Devonshire clotted cream, British fashion, Notting Hill, Glastonbury and Soho House.

What was your first impression of LA and has it changed since? 

My first impression of LA was perfect weather, a relaxing lifestyle and glamour…
