Any diet book that knocks Harry Potter off the top of the best-seller list has to be worth finding out more about. Our guest dietitian, Lyndel Costain goes down-under to see what all the fuss is about. Here’s her review of the CSIRO Total Wellbeing Diet. We’re making bets in the office on whether this book will top the UK best sellers in January. In the meantime, hope you enjoy this issue of DFM.


Best wishes, Pat

Dina who’s 39 and has lost 3st 4lbs says ‘I will turn 40 in January, and at the start of 2005 I vowed I would never be fat after 40!


Leigh who’s 21 and has lost 1st 12lbs says ‘The best thing is not to view it as a diet. Small changes soon add up to big changes and you soon don’t even notice.
