Diets come and diets go...truth be told I don't believe in diets. My theory is that the more you think about diets, the more you think about food and therefore the more you want to eat. However a new book, Honestly Healthy (featured recently in 'Grazia' magazine) has come along, which is more of a lifestyle guide with some lovely recipes included for good measure...now that's better. Written by a nutritional therapist (Vicki Edgson) and a vegetarian cook (Natasha Corrett), it provides all the information and recipes you need for a healthy approach to life - good for both body and mind. All based on the theory that eating more alkaline foods will give you more energy, help loose excess weight, flatten your stomach, make your skin glow, increase concentration and reduce sugar cravings.
Clearly, we're not the only ones who like this book. Our close friend (we wish), Victoria Beckham, loves it and other names rumoured to be alkaline queens are Gwyneth Paltrow, Jennifer Aniston and Miranda Kerr. No calorie counting, no point scoring, no weigh-ins...I'm putting my order in now.
