    According to articles in the press today

    From bbc.co.uk

    Doctors who spend 30 seconds telling patients they need to lose weight can have a dramatic impact, a study shows.

    Some people, who had no intention of shedding the pounds, lost 10% of their body weight after being offered a free weight-loss programme.

    The University of Oxford researchers said the 30-second chat would have a huge effect if every GP did it.

    and kinked to the same story in the Telegraph (sorry it is behind a paywall) a 7 day menu that wouldn't be out of place here

    They might even have lifted it from here

    Example Day 3

    Day 3

    Fried kippers or mackerel with tomato

    Low carb pizza

    Steak with cauliflower mash and green beans

    The Telegraph also exhaults the 5:2 and mediterranean diets
