Christmas has come and gone. Lent is here. In all probability many of the après Festive good resolutions have been hastily abandoned. All good intentions of staying the course once the new gym subscriptions have been paid gradually fade away. Several weeks later, the exercise regime becomes boring and the after-work drinks and nibbles too tempting to refuse. Never mind, it is human to err and fall by the wayside.

Among these, the fantastic Chicken Goujons accompanied by a tangy yoghurt dip and for those with a sweet tooth yummy flapjacks. Neither laden with calories! There are many more to choose from, all of which make healthy cooking and eating a pleasurable experience.
The latter pages are devoted to Karl’s take on FITNESS and WELLBEING, elements that play a crucial part in such regimes. The reader is never treated as a health freak, as the guidelines laid down in both sections are never ‘over the top’, but practical and achievable.

Finally, the exercises Karl suggests are all well illustrated and ‘doable’ in the confines of one’s home, if not a member of any gym. Although the latter is always good to visit, as it helps initially, to keep up momentum when once embarked on a specific program.
