Since the Sonoma diet is tastier than your usual meals, it is no problem sticking to it and there are no sudden, unhealthy changes in your weight. Not only will you lose weight but you'll also be savouring flavours, rejuvenating taste buds and firing up your passion for good food. Get ready for the delicious diet that's high on healthy eating and low on pounds!
