There is no magical diet - the only way to lose weight is to simply eat less

There is no magical diet – the only way to lose weight is to simply eat less.

We are addicted to coffee and a cup of it nets the shop about £2 in profit.

The profit on a £100 bottle of seaweed detoxifying purge is a lot more than on a £100 basket of real food.

We all know the way to lose weight is to eat less.

The Blood Sugar diet, Dopamine diet, Paleo diet, Juice diet, Gut diet, Body and Soul diet, 5:2 diet, Lean in 15 diet, Raw Food diet, Cambridge diet, the New Atkins diet — all restrict one food group or another and so limit calories.

And don’t reach for supplements.

The US public spends $500million (nearly £400million) a year on antioxidant supplements alone.

We should just eat good fresh food and ignore the diet gurus, the health bloggers, the pill-pushers and the scaremongers.

David “Avocado” Wolfe claims coconut oil “rids the body of lice and parasites such as tapeworms, kills infection in the gut, destroys viruses that cause influenza, herpes, measles, hepatitis and more”.
