You can lose weight on almost any diet.  The real challenge is not losing weight - it is keeping the weight off.   This eBook is one of the few that addresses the two key issues in weight maintenance: 1) Preventing the regaining of lost weight, and 2) Preventing weight gain as we age. 

Weight Maintenance is a practical lifelong weight control guide for men and women - a superb reference - and another sensible eBook you can trust from NoPaperPress. (Imperial and metric units, PhD author)
