Temp Head - Walking and no alcohol

Walking and no alcohol

Marisa Mackle (39), author and Herald columnist.

"The best way for me to lose weight and maintain it is to walk quickly for an hour five times a week, not drink alcohol and not to touch chocolate, bread or pasta.

"I know from experience that this is what works best for me when I'm trying to lose weight for a special occasion, but like anything that yields results it's difficult. You just don't get something for nothin. But then the above is not some fad, it's more realistic."
