    Diet SOS

    By Lisa Fitzpatrick
    Authors:
    Lisa Fitzpatrick
    At her heaviest, Lisa Fitzpatrick was a size 20, and weighed 15 stone. She was unhappy, but hid her body and discomfort behind layers of clothes, carefully styled hair, impeccable make up and distracting shoes. However, after the birth of her first child, she realised that enough was enough - years of making unhealthy choices had taken their toll, and she was ready to change. Diet SOS chronicles Lisa's experiences of weight loss with refreshing honesty and clarity. She doesn't promise a quick fix or an easy solution. Instead, she asks her readers to stop looking for excuses and start taking responsibility for their own bodies. With advice on foods to avoid, delicious recipes that helped with her own weight loss and an emphasis on realistic lifestyle change, positive thinking and listening to your body, Lisa shows that, if she can do it, you, too, can have the body you want.
