Continue your slimming journey with these delicious variations to your eating plan devised by dietitian Annaret Brand

When we published our first Project Beat the Bulge diet it was a huge hit. Readers are still calling in to request copies of it. Those taking part in the project plus scores of readers have been following the diet since it appeared in YOU (29 September 2011) and have kept us up to date with inspirational weightloss stories. We asked Cape Town-based registered dietician Annaret Brand to mix things up a bit and give us a few more options to include in our daily eating plan. We wish all our readers who started off weighing more than 140 kg and registered for our weight-loss project the best of luck - and remember, the dieter who does best will win a makeover and a new wardrobe! Follow our participants’ progress on the Facebook page Klop die Skaal/Beat the Bulge. GENERAL RULES
