‘My BMI is 22, my hip-to-waist ratio passes muster with the medical profession, and given the right light, when wearing the right underwear, I have even been referred to as "slim". A small miracle given my alcohol intake, addiction to crisps, and erratic approach to exercise …’

Helpful and entertaining! Wenham-Jones has provided exactly what the title says but also adds in enough humour that it's not a dull slog like some other weight loss books. Plus it's not just full of the same old boring diets that no one can stick to, it's full of enough ideas that there's sure to be at least a few that would work for you. ...more

Doesn't get you used to overcoming cravings for wine or chocolate, but quite funny in places. More of a 'everything in moderate' diet book. ...more

This is not your ordinary weight loss book. How useful it is to you depends on how seriously you take this book. It is a fun read. Most of the tips in the book are things that you've already heard about - the nice thing is that they are all conveniently located in one place. Most of the items (like most diet information)is common sense, but this book doesn't take itself to seriously and therefore, it makes it more honest - if you get what I mean. A drawback for me was that it is a book written b ...more

This is a sensible guide to how you might lose weight - or at least maintain your present size. Its ethos is that not 'one size fits all' (literally!) when it comes to diet plans, and some of the 100 diet tips are hilarious, like the tic-tac diet and one where you roll a dice to win your favourite treat. Laughs aside, there is some interesting science explained and Wenham-Jones gives her honest opinion/experience about all the latest trends. It's like having a guide lead you, in a sensible but f ...more

I've been reading this for awhile because I've been so busy but I finally finished it and I loved it! The book was very informative as well as interesting and the author's funny comments had me laughing out loud occasionally. It even gives recipes in the back so you can try out some new healthy choices. The are a ton of tips in the book which I found helpful and can appeal to almost anyone. The book centers around eating what you want (it still has to be close to healthy) and still lose weight. ...more

This book is hilarious. It has plenty of different tips for different people/lifestyles but it's also fun to read. So many diet/weight loss books are so dry and boring that you want to eat something bad just to alleviate the boredom. However, Wenham-Jones' wit, coupled with some fun illustrations, actually made this interesting.
Sure, you will find some tips that you have heard before (when giving over a hundred it's hard not to have some unoriginal ones). But there are also plenty that I hadn't

I bought this book on a whim. Four months of WeightWatchers and too many incidences of cake, that's all I'm saying.

It had me at No.1. Eat chocolate.
40 and 44 were my favourites although 10 and 11 were pretty good too.
21 would work, but it's a bit drastic.

It's a funny, tongue in cheek yet useful book. Well done Jane.
Now, where's that chocolate gone?
