WITH a myriad of weight loss products available to everyone, it’s no wonder the majority of us can get overwhelmed and confused with what is ‘right’ and ‘good’ for the body.
Driven by the notion to create clarity in all the confusion, dietitian Chris Hughes has written The Tweaking Diet.
The book is designed to give people the knowledge and skills to modify their own diet and lifestyle, without feeling like they have to starve themselves to lose weight.
Any diet approach will work in the short term, but if it’s not sustainable.
Whatever diet approach you choose, you need to ask yourself, is it something I can do for the rest of my life? The Tweaking Diet gives the skills to both lose weight and understand how to consume the foods you love eating.
