Is dieting different for men and women? We asked our two dietitians Juliette Kellow and Lyndel Costain - yes, they said, and no! Here's Juliette's take on the differences and her tips especially for men, and Lyndel's contribution on men, women and diet sabotage.

There's lots more good stuff (below) in this month's issue, hope you enjoy.

Best wishes, Pat
