No hunger pangs. No faddy diets. No complicated calculations. This is the most SIMPLE diet ever. It is EASY. It is HEALTHY AND BALANCED. It is SUITABLE FOR ALL. And it WORKS. Just choose most of your foods from the green lists, some of your foods from the amber lists, and few foods from the red lists. Including the facts, figures and info on obesity, THE TRAFFIC LIGHT DIET is based on all the main weight-control recommendations for individuals made in the Commons Select Committee 2004 report on obesity.
I've been writing books for 22 years now, and have been a journalist for a mere forty! Most of my books are about food - I love to cook and eat. I also have an interest in health and nutrition and one of my best-selling books was The Food Bible. In 2011 I joined forces with the world-famous gardening expert Dr D G Hessayon to write 'The Garden to Kitchen Expert'.
I started out on a slightly different tack - as a show business writer on a teen magazine 'back in the day' (circa late sixties to mid seventies!). The true story of those years became my only non-food/health book, Keith Moon Stole My Lipstick. The Kindle version was published in March 2013.
I have a regular blog at the Saga Magazine website on their health pages - http://www.saga.co.uk/health.aspx - which often features my recipe of the week, and a rant about some latest health injustice or celebrity fad or my own inability to lead the perfect healthy lifestyle!
I live in Herefordshire, and am married with two grown-up boys, three very grown up step-children and several grand and step-grandchildren too.
