GET THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS

Be strict with meals but flex­i­ble with in­gre­di­ents. Say you like a daily omelette for break­fast – one day, add broc­coli; the next, toma­toes. Re­sult?

Max weight loss and flavour. What’s not to love?

SO, WHAT IS IT AND HOW DOES IT KICK KI­LOS?

Ba­si­cally, hav­ing go-to meals. Know­ing what you’re go­ing to eat takes the emo­tion out of the equa­tion, so you’re less likely to choose junk on im­pulse. It also helps with main­te­nance: peo­ple who stick to a reg­i­men are 1.5 times more likely to keep off the weight they’ve lost.

OK, BUT I’M AL­READY BORED...

True, eat­ing the same thing ev­ery day can be tough long-term. But re­mem­ber: a healthy, var­ied diet has been shown to help fight ex­cess body fat. Se­ri­ous food for thought!
