Neris and India's idiot-proof diet

£3.99

Product description

Ever hankered for a diet book by and for real people - people who, you know, actually have a life? Congratulations: you've just picked it up. Before we began our diet, Neris and I weighed 31 stone between us. Our goal was to lose 10 stone between us in under a year. And we did it. If two unusually greedy, cocktail-loving mums can lose this amount of weight without much effort, so can anyone. This book tells you how two friends did it, and how you can do it too. It's not a diet devised by some bossy string bean who has never been more than 7lbs overweight, nor by a fat middle-aged doctor, but a real, long-term, workable diet for real people. A modified and therefore bearable low-carb, high-protein way of eating, the diet really works and includes meal plans, recipes, advice on clothes, make-up and hair at every stage from fat to thin. It doesn't include impossible exercise routines or disgusting things to eat. Above all, it gets to the bottom of why we overeat - and shows you how to stop. There's never been a diet book like it - for women, by women, with jokes and useful tips, and advice that is truly simple to follow. What other diet book tells you to pour yourself a large drink at the end of the day, because you've earned it?
