9780446508766: Neris and India's Idiot-Proof Diet: A Weight-Loss Plan for Real Women

Ever hankered for a diet book by and for real people--people who, you know, actually have a life? Congratulations: you've just picked it up.

Before we began our diet, Neris and I weighted 434 pounds between us. Our goal was to lose 140 pounds between us in under a year, to go from a size 22 to a size 14. And we did it. If two unusually greedy, cocktail-loving moms can lose this amount of weight without much effort, so can anyone.

This book tells you how two friends did it, and how you can do it too. It's not a diet devised by some bossy string bean who has never been more than 7 pounds overweight, nor by a fat middle-aged doctor, but a real, long-term, workable diet for real people. A modified and therefore bearable low-carb, high-protein way of eating, the diet really works and includes meal plans, recipes, advice on clothes, make-up and hair at every stage from fat to thin. It doesn't include impossible exercise routines or disgusting things to eat. Above all, it gets to the bottom of why we overeat--and shows you how to stop. There's never been a diet book like it--for women, by women, with jokes and useful tips, and advice that is truly simple to follow. What other diet book tells you to pour yourself a large drink at the end of the day, because you've earned it?
"You'll laugh out loud. Reading this book is like talking to a clued-up friend who also makes you feel great about yourself...amazingly frank...the honesty of their confessions exceed anything previously published!" ---The Evening Standard

About the Author:

India Knight is the author of My Life on a Plate, Don't You Want Me and The Shops. She is a columnist for The (British) Sunday Times and is a mother of three. Neris Thomas is a film producer and artist; she has one daughter.

For years Neris and India used to bump into each other at parties; invariably wearing the same dress, because they were both on the porky side, but with a taste for clothes. However, this year they are buying each other tiny little designer jeans.
