Insight from our readers in YOU Best Diets


The 2013 YOU Best Diets is not only about losing weight, it’s about doing it your way. This issue has 32 tried-and-tested eating plans, including the blood type diet, the one many readers have been keen to try.

We also turned to readers for insight into lifestyle changes. “We handed six popular diet books to six readers and asked them to do their own reading and try the diet tips and eating plans. Some of them lost a little, some of them lost a lot. They give feedback on what worked and what didn’t. This is invaluable for someone embarking on a new eating plan,” says Alet van Zyl, editor of YOU Best Diets. Included with this edition, sponsored by USN, is the USN Body Makeover Plan.

And it’s not all hard work and no play. We have delicious recipes for everyone wanting to shed kilos, from bobotie to (we hope you’re sitting down for this) chocolate cake.
