Local Mother and Daughter Lose Over 9½ Stones and Spring Into Action With New Careers! extra easy unlimited food plan! And


the weight losses are incredible. I’ve lost over 6 stones in a year, and my Mum has lost 3 stone 8lbs! We’ve lost more than my Mum weighs now. It’s totally changed our lives!”


Mari says “Not only is the food plan amazing, but the group is fantastic too!
