I just wanted to recommend Cornelia (cmcvcr) from this site who runs her own business offering healthy eating / weight loss advice and programmes.
I have been following Cornelias suggestions for a few months now and have so far lost 20 lbs! :v_SPIN:
More to the point, I have much more energy and feel generally better in myself.
As most of you realise, shortly after you arrive, you get into the whole red wine / bbq / social events side of things and boy do the kilos pile on.
Definitely get in touch with Cornelia who will help you with a plan that suits you and your lifestyle - this is not a one size fits all diet plan by any means! I can even have red wine every night ;)
