Sally Symonds is one of those rare creatures - more elusive than Bigfoot, rarer than a rainbow's end and harder to find than a dry mouth in a chocolate shop. She is a weight-loss wonder, one of the few people who have managed to lose weight and keep it off. Initially losing 45kg in 33 weeks in 2002-03, Sally kept that weight off for over five years, before going on to lose another 8.5kg. She has been described as "the complete weight-loss package" - she's lost a lot, she's lost a little and, most importantly, she's kept it off!
Knowing that you can't out-train a bad diet, much of Sally's success came from her experiments in the kitchen. Throwing out all the conventional approaches to weight loss, Sally didn't follow a specific diet, ignored the concept of portion sizes and rewarded herself - with food - along the way. She also learnt how to successfully navigate herself through the minefield of misinformation that many food manufacturers and retailers are feeding us today.
This book features the foods that Sally eats everyday - practical and proven recipes that are delicious, nutritious and expeditious. It also explains her food philosophy - why she succeeded where so many others have failed. With a wealth of tips and snacks to try (as well as tricks and traps to avoid), Sally shows you how she became one of "those people" who never has to worry about her weight again ... and how you can do it too!
