    Another informative book by Michael Mosley which was interesting and easy to read. If only I'd known about this years ago. Highly recommended :)

    My doctor recommended this book and after reading it and realising this was the ultimate sense and easy to follow guidelines to lose weight, I have now lost 5 kg.. It works so well and no effort at all only adding some exercise. Print a good size, content easy to understand and basic sense. I did not follow the diet recipes but took the message of 500 calories on 2 days a week. I particularly liked the testimonials and calorie guide.
