4.0 out of 5 stars not a variety of plans for diets like the TV programme of the same name, 25 May 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Big paperback with lots of pictures. Covers a sensible plan for loosing weight by eating healthy, not a variety of plans for diets like the TV programme of the same name. Factual and scientific, based on good nutrition, discusses what may block people from doing sensible things to lose weight. Avoids fashionable but nonsense aspects like clean eating, removing whole food groups and so on. Quite a lot of the book is taken up with recipes, which if you are used to cooking may be a bit superfluous. If you are not used to preparing fresh food from scratch and not prepared to be flexible in what you eat, the changes in lifestyle may seem quite daunting. The author is realistic about lapses and coming to terms with having to do something about your weight. Overall, useful but not super useful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great wool blend at a reasonable price, 25 May 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great wool blend at a reasonable price, arrived quickly, colours as they appeared in photo. Very soft feel, knits up quickly.This chunky uses 6.5mm needle, so not so good for patterns for chunky 6mm. Sort look when knitted, best for simple textures and patterns rather than very elaborate cables for instance.

5.0 out of 5 stars Detailed descriptions of short walks in Dolomites in English, 27 April 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Useful book on walks in the Dolomites split up into areas - some literature on this area is in Italian or German or features longer mountain trekking and using via ferrata. Small book that fits in a pocket, allows planning but does not replace a map.

5.0 out of 5 stars Waterproof outer and light padded inner jacket act together in a parka length, 27 April 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is called 3 in 1 because you can wear the waterproof outer shell and inner lightly padded hooded jackets together or separately, covering all but the coldest conditions. I really like the parka length which keeps the tops of your legs and bottom dry. You can undo the zip at the bottom so you can walk easily and sit in the car comfortably. Big pockets with flaps on the front, some inside pockets too. Hood fits nicely without too much adjusting and does not blow off. Plan to take to mountains in summer, pleased so far with its performance in various conditions. Good value for what your get and quite fabric like. Plain dark blue colour suits any situation.

3.0 out of 5 stars Readable but not compelling Regency romance, 21 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Readable but not compelling romantic story that falls between being a romance and a mystery and lacks a bit to make it successful for both genres. Typical romance set up of self possessed heroine asked to obey dying relatives wish and marry a stranger with an unsavoury reputation, who, surprise surprise turns out to be personable and attractive. The sense of regency period in terms of behaviour and detail is a bit off and some of the characters are quite irritating. Elements of narrative are dealt with in a rather cavalier way and the ending is abrupt. Not about Christmas.


Predator One: A Joe Ledger Novel
Predator One: A Joe Ledger Novel
Price: £4.69

5.0 out of 5 stars Fast paced enjoyable thriller where you really wonder which characters will survive, 13 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very fast moving Joe Ledger novel that I did not mean to read quite so quickly but just had to keep on going to find out what happened. Lots of pace, really really bad baddies (some of whom might just be familiar) and deep trouble for Joe, the DMS and those dear to them. If you have read the rest of the series, you will be even more concerned about the characters survival as really unfair horrible things happen to people. The bad guys have realised keeping the DMS including Mr Church on the back foot is key to their evil plans succeeding. Elements about redemption, revenge, and unexplained mysterious things add depth to the story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Economical version of 'bandage' bikini, 6 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Economical version of a Victoria's Secret style my daughter wanted. Fitted her, reasonable quality, did the job for a very reasonable price. Style also offers some support that's better than pulling a halter neck line really tight.

Price: £60.00

4.0 out of 5 stars Bargain Bikis with ankle strap, 21 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Well priced Birkenstock sandals with an adjustable ankle strap - great if you want to walk a bit further and faster than you can in the mule styles. Matt black upper is a versatile choice to go with anything. I got the size I know fits me for the Birkenstock footbed - if you are new to this brand you may need to think a smaller size, because it is uncomfortable if the footbed is not in the right place.

5.0 out of 5 stars Comfortable trainers with rocking wedge that helps you gain or maintain control of muscles and joints, 21 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Chunky rocker style wedge trainers that can be worn as casual shoes, supplied with black laces as well as white. Since Masai Barefoot Technology shoes now seem defunct, these Sketchers do the job. They do take a bit of getting used to, but if the action suits you they are really comfortable and helpful to your feet, ankles and leg muscles. The inherent instability helps you gain and keep control of your joints and muscles and the trainers are comfortably padded. Not convinced about the weight loss properties, but that's not why I wear them. The chunky rocker gives a bit more height as well. The Size 3 fits me, but I am a small 3, if you are 3.5 or EU 36 you might want to try the Size 4.
