I bought this book on Wednesday and have almost finished reading it! Its fantastic and the best of its kind I have come across (and I’ve read a few!) Easy to read, lots of great information about nutrition and handy tips as well as some nifty recipes a couple of which I have already tried that were delicious and easy to make. It will be my weight loss, weight management and nutrition bible. I highly recommended it.
