Woman’s Own: Fast Fix Diet

Think you’ve left it too late to lose weight for your holiday? Consider it sorted with diet guru Monica Grenfell’s holiday panic diet.

How it works
Pineapple is a miracle fruit that is sweet to help beat cravings, high in fluids to keep you feeling energetic and a great diuretic to combat water retention and headaches. You must eat pineapple at every meal for this diet to work best.

Top tip
Always choose a fresh pineapple – it should smell sweet and look golden yellow and will last two days.

Your refresher shake recipe
Pop 100g fresh, ripe pineapple in a blender with 250ml semi-skimmed milk. This frothy, sweet white shake contains just 105 calories. Drink straight away, but if you have left it, simply stir well before drinking.
