THREE MEN ON A DIET


THREE MEN ON A DIET

GEORGE COURTAULD    Book Number: 90155    Product format: Hardback

Sub-titled 'A Very English Approach to Losing Weight' this is the story of George, Reggie and Sebastian, three mighty trenchermen with nothing to gain and much to lose, learning how to lower their calorie intake without losing their joie de vivre. Determined to improve his looks and health before it's too late, having been compared to a pregnant bulldog, Reggie persuades the others to join him on a five-month quest to shed three stone. Each has his own degree of cynicism, commitment and willingness to compromise on breakfast, parties and alcohol. Amid the bewildering array of information on offer - What is a carb? What is saturated fat? How many units in a bottle of wine? - together they attempt to navigate stumbling blocks such as mayonnaise, chocolate and cheese, and support each other through fortnightly weigh-ins and varied levels of success with the Fast Diet, the Atkins Diet and others. At the very least they hope to give up snoring and rekindle their love lives. This hilarious and realistic guide rips up the rule books and is a diet book for those who enjoy the finer things in life. At times hilarious, even if you don't want to lose weight, it?s full of sage advice. 216pp.

Disappointing

I had hoped for an amusing read but all I got was a boring set of reminisences of posh blokes. Not for me.
