By Suzy Wengel

  • E-Book
  • £P.O.R.

Hailed as 'the simplest diet in the world', the life-changing handful method from Denmark will help you lose weight without calorie counting, exercise or faddish ingredients.

Featured in The Times.


Suzy Wengel lost 88 pounds using the Scandi Sense Diet - and has kept it off.


Lose weight and keep it off with the grassroots diet sensation that has taken Scandinavia by storm, the life-changing handful method that is hailed as 'the simplest diet in the world'.

The Scandi Sense Diet is the intuitive way of eating that helps you to cut calories without counting them, and adapts to your life rather than dictating it. Based on the principle of four handfuls of food per meal - protein, carbohydrate and two of vegetables, plus a spoonful of fat - and you decide the ingredients. No calorie-counting, no hard-to-source ingredients and no exercise - unless you want to.

The Scandi Sense Diet is not just about looking good - although it does work wonders on the physique. It takes a scientific approach that ensures good health across the board, including regulating blood sugar and cholesterol.

Suzy Wengel's 9-day plan is irresistibly simple, and has proven results that can be seen in the book's case studies. Put an end to yo-yo dieting and enjoy three satisfying meals each day, easily planned with your own two hands.

Eat It Anyway

Eve Simmons and Laura Dennison
Authors:
Eve Simmons and Laura Dennison

'One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well.' - Virginia Woolf.The definition of 'healthy eating' has been chewed up, spat out and re-digested enough times to make Joe Public give up and seek out their nearest branch of McDonald's. Our mindless obsession with eating 'right' is such that we're now more concerned about what our Instagram followers think of a poorly lit picture of our dinner than we are of its effect on our own palate. Or, indeed, our happiness. We seem to be living in a time where we no longer eat with our hearts, emotions or heritage - but with what our waistlines (and followers) in mind.Not Plant Based are on a mission to help you love food again. The principle is very simple: eat what you like and don't worry about it. It's a menu that's especially delicious, 'guilt-free' and requires a hell of a lot less money spent in health food shops. Throughout the book, Laura and Eve call on experts to debunk myths and provide a balanced exploration of our attitude towards food, with some delicious recipes thrown in along the way. They discuss their own experiences of eating disorders and offer personal tips and coping mechanisms to help rid you of anxiety linked to food. No one is saying healthy eating is bad; there is simply a lot of misleading information out there. More to the point, food is so much more in the grand scheme of life than health: it's family, friends, enjoyment and memories. So go on, take a bite out of Eat It Anyway and learn to love your food all over again. It's SO mouth-wateringly good - we bet you'll be back for seconds.

Max Lowery

In The 2 Meal Day, Max Lowery introduces intermittent fasting - eat just two meals a day, either breakfast and lunch or lunch and dinner - to burn fat and get fit fast. Rather than grazing on food all day or having to do complicated calorie calculations for two days of the 5:2 diet, simply eat two meals to lose weight, reduce hunger and feel more energised. Choose your two meals from Max's delicious, nutritious and easy-to-prepare recipes; start the day with Salmon Mini Frittatas or a Breakfast Burrito; Lunch on Thai Green Chicken Curry or Tuna Casserole or enjoy Creamy Mushroom and Parmesan Risotto or Sea Bass Sauce Vierge for Dinner. There are even healthier desserts to satisfy your sweet tooth without over-indulging - choose from Two-Ingredient Chocolate Mousse or Banana Pancakes. Max shows how to combine your 2-meal day with High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) - short duration and maximum effort exercises - and resistance workouts to help you drop fat and get fit quickly. So ditch the calorie-counting and the sugar highs and lows and enjoy two meals a day alongside Max's workouts for a leaner, fitter, healthier body.
