‘Sane and sensible – and very funny.’Marina O’Loughlin, Restaurant Critic
“My BMI is 22, my hip to waist ratio passes muster with the medical profession and given the right light, when wearing the right underwear, I have even been referred to as “slim”. A small miracle, given my alcohol intake, addiction to crisps and erratic approach to exercise….”
Ever started a new diet and found yourself reaching for the wine and chocolate within a week? Well, now you can! Jane Wenham-Jones, best-selling author and columnist, offers 100 tips on slimming down without sacrifice.
Quirky but useful, fun but factual, Jane’s approach is a unique mixture of everyday science, the right mental attitude, and common-sense strategies, designed to fit in with your busy life.
With advice on “party weeks”, dressing to hide the pounds, and how to lose weight fast when a big date looms, Jane offers tactics that work where most diets fail.
From eating a chilli a day to speed up your metabolism, to doing quick bursts of exercise with rapid results, to simply thinking yourself skinnier, these tried-and-tested methods will see you leaner and fitter – while allowing for a daily fix of the foods you love.
I know I’m a show-off but even I wouldn’t display my bottom without good reason!
This photo was taken when we were looking at possible cover shots for the Flab book – originally conceived to help writers everywhere combat Writer’s Bottom. (A term I coined in my book Wannabe a Writer? which had a special section on ‘top diets for fat scribes…’ and which got a lot more interest than I was expecting… :-))
Written for anyone feeling a bit blobby, who still wants to have wine/crisps/a life.
Praise for 100 Ways to Fight the Flab
‘This book full of sensible, useful information that is easy to put into practice. It is also written with genuine humour by someone who has been there, tried it, failed, fought on, and by being her own research subject discovered what works both short- and long-term. Nor is she afraid to mock herself and the diet industry. Jane doesn’t preach, she makes you laugh.’Jane Pollard
