The programme is written by expert to help you lose weight – whether you want to break a cycle of “yo-yo” dieting or understand how to take control of your gradually expanding waistline and make a lasting shift to a healthier lifestyle.

Most weight loss programmes put you on a diet. At the end you heave a huge sigh of relief and, more often than not, quickly put the weight back on. This programme does not ask you to diet. Instead it takes you on a journey to help you understand that how, when and why you eat is as important as what you eat. It puts you in charge of your weight.

Suitable for both men and women, it offers a fun, supportive and engaging opportunity to learn the 12 most important things you need to know about losing weight and keeping it off for good.
