When she married in 1957 at the age of 19, Monica was 5' 6" tall and weighed 140 lbs. By 1959, when the above photo was taken, Monica's weight had risen to 168 lbs. In 1962 we found the low-carb, high-fat diet. Two years later, Monica was the only European photographic model in Singapore. Her weight now was just 122 lbs. That's a loss of 46 lbs!

All diets show before and after pictures, but how many can show that after more than 50 years the weight has not come back on?

Monica, now aged 74, still has her youthful — and slim — figure.

"Natural Health and Weight Loss may be the best non-technical book on diet ever written"
Joel Kauffman, PhD, Professor Emeritus, University of the Sciences, Philadelphia, PA

When I wrote Eat Fat, Get Thin! in 1999, it was one of the first popular diet book to talk about the Glycaemic Index (GI). Now, of course, everyone has gone GI mad, as diet book writers who advocated different diets have jumped on the bandwagon.

And most are very misleading.

I haven't changed. My message is still the same — and it is now backed up by even more scientific evidence as many studies have been published in the seven years since I wrote EFGT.

And this way of eating is not just good for weight loss. Over 70 other common, chronic, degenerative diseases are also cured or prevented by this way of eating. They range from the serious such as heart disease, cancer, osteoporosis, and dementia to the less serious, but no less distressing such as acne, irritable bowel syndrome, and short sightedness in children.
