3 Things this Diet is About & 3 Things It’s Not

Having done some research on other sites and Twitter accounts with similar subjects, weight loss, it was glaringly apparent that I should clarify what this diet and site is about.

Why I Decided That I Had Lose Weight

What were my motivations to lose weight? Let me jump back a few years.

As I reached my mid-forties my weight had just gone up and up. I don’t exercise much. Scratch that. Apart from walking I don’t exercise at all. I am very lazy in that area and really have no desire to go to a gym.
