We've all been there. There's a week or maybe only a day or two until the big event, which might be a date with the (very) nice bloke from accounts or a glitzy cocktail party, and yet that little black dress continues to hang belligerently in the wardrobe, deriding those few extra pounds and causing untold stress. Well, it need not any longer. Whether it's got to be done by the winter or by Saturday, Michael van Straten shows each of us the optimum way to lose the excess. Promising an end to revolting diet drinks, biscuits, pills, potions, laxatives and cling-film wraps and replacing them with good, delicious food in the right combinations and proportions, Michael's recipes guarantee you great results. It also includes information on how to assess your own personal dieting needs through calculating your BMI (Body Mass Index), height to weight ratio and skin-fold thickness as well as advice on how to get optimum amounts of the essential nutrients, avoid artery clogging and fluid-retaining cellulite. This book is a godsend for dieters everywhere; clear, concise, useful information means that you really won't need another diet book ever again.
