Greedy Girl's Diet

Nadia Sawalha
Authors:
Nadia Sawalha

Nadia Sawalha has always loved cooking, but until recently rarely ate her own food. Like a lot of women, whilst her family tucked in to delicious dishes, she nibbled on diet food. Later, ravenously hungry, she binged, somehow convincing herself that the calories didn't count if nobody saw her eating them. Two years ago, after decades of fluctuating weight, she decided enough was enough: * She wasn't going to start a new diet tomorrow. * She wasn't going to start a new diet ever again. * She was going to eat normal meals with her family and, most importantly, she was going to do so for the rest of her life. Since then, Nadia has lost and kept off 31/2 stone, by simply throwing away the diet books. Instead she shaved off the hidden calories, all without anyone noticing. A little less oil here, a different cut of meat there; brown rice instead of white, more herbs, spices and colour; and a dessert every day! The result is The Greedy Girl's Diet, which is packed with more than 100 delicious recipes, and Nadia's invaluable tips and advice on how to achieve a slim, fit and healthy body.
