 What should you eat to ensure rapid and lasting weight loss — while remaining in good health?
Jacques Fricker draws on the latest scientific findings to propose a new, efficient and safe approach to dieting. He argues that:
• it is not necessary to eliminate all sugars, but to select them well
• it is essential to eat fruit and vegetables
• it is vital to eat a balanced diet.
In order to lose weight and stay slim, without harm to your health, you must find a dietary balance with which you feel comfortable. This book shows you how to find and maintain that balance, by following some nutritional rules that avoid the pitfalls of faddish diets.
