Book Review: How to Lose Weight Well
Some of you that follow this blog will know that from time to time I review a book. Today's victim is
How to Lose Weight Well by Xand van Tulleken
You may well have seen the highly amusing television programme that was broadcast last month. Just about everyone lost weight on the variety of diets that they tried. This book is not about that, it is about the diet that Van Tulleken has devised with the help of a nutritionalist.
The preamble to the book is well written and it is easy to understand his reasoning behind weight loss and his own battle with being over weight.
The recipes that he publishes in his book are interesting and tasty with a big emphasis on vegetables. This is perfect for me as I tend to eat more veg than fruit. So far so good.
What I didn't like so much was the choice of three diet plans that are on offer in the book. Basically it is the same amount of food split between the three main meals of the day. You either eat three meals, two meals or one meal. The amount of food doesn't change just the portions at each meal time.
If you want a diet that will see you dropping fat at a fast rate then this is perfect for you. I only want to lose three kilograms so I can't say that it is for me. I will use some of the recipes though. The aubergine recipe is fantastic.
