Well, who'd have thought that grapefruit would be making a comeback? Juliette's investigation makes very interesting reading. We've also got news of a summer challenge starting on the 2nd of August, and I climb on the soap box with Felicity Lawrence for a blast at the food industry. There's lots more in this issue of DFM, hope you enjoy.


Best wishes, Pat

Real Life Success

LBS Challenge

Join the fun, the Lighter, Brighter Summer Challenge kicks off on August 2nd. The idea is to make the most of opportunities to burn extra calories - get inspired with these ideas from WLR members.
