Packed with suggestions for swapping your favourite foods for waistline-friendly healthier options, this practical book will help you shave calories and fat from your diet without going hungry or skipping meals.
No more faddy, restrictive diets - THE FOOD SWAP DIET is a practical manual for weight loss that provides all the information you need to lose weight permanently. The book compares seemingly similar foods and shows which are friendlier to the waistline, and to your health, allowing you to make the wisest food choices and reduce your daily calorie intake. There's no going hungry, no banned foods and no skipping meals. You'll find hundreds of food swaps that slice anything from 10 to 900 calories per serving so you can choose what to swap to achieve your goal.
Comprehensive and informative, the book covers everything from storecupboard and fridge staples, such as breakfast cereals and dairy products, to lunches, ready-meals, drinks, snacks and eating out. You'll also find plenty of guidance on the healthiest choices - they aren't always the ones you think! - and how to make your diet really work for you so that you also gain health as you lose weight.
