As this is a bank holiday week, there are two books to recommend both about diet and health.
Clean by Dr Alejandro Junger sets out a dietary detox programme described as “amazing” by Oscar-winning actress Gwyneth Paltrow. Designed to be easily incorporated into our busy schedules, Clean will open your eyes to what you are putting into your body on a daily basis, not just through diet but cleaning products, air conditioning and gardening chemicals, to name but a few. The book shows not just how to lose weight loss but also how to deal with any nagging health problems so that you can truly experience what it means to feel healthy. Clean is published by HarperOne and costs £9.99. The second book is I Quit Sugar by Australian journalist Sarah Wilson who writes about her decision to give up sugar and how she felt better for doing so. I Quit Sugar will open your eyes to the amount of sugar we consume without thinking and is packed with simple recipes, including desserts and treats. The book is published by Macmillan and costs £14.99.
