Margaret Mayo, Romance Author


There’s not much happening in my life at the moment. I’m still waiting to hear from my editor and I’m still working on my talk. I’m also jotting down ideas for a new book.

I was looking through my bookcase earlier for a book on poetry – which I couldn’t find, but I did spot these titles:

Foods that Harm and Foods that Heal
Colour Me Beautiful Make Up Book
How to Look and Feel Half Your Age
The F2 Diet
Inch LossPlan
The Waistline Plan
Slim & Healthy Recipes

What do you think they are telling me?

That they never did any good, that’s what. I’m a stone heavier than I ever used to be, well, two actually if we go back to before children time.

The best diet book I’ve ever followed is one I bought in Australia called The CSIRO Total Wellbeing Diet. CSIRO stands for Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation. And it worked – till I stopped following it!

There are super recipes in this book. I made their butternut pumpkin/squash and coriander soup a couple of weeks ago – it is to die for.

So that’s me cleansing my soul. Now where is the chocolate?

    Ah I know the feeling.
    Iti s scientifically proven that diets don't work.
    The time I lost the most weight was when I was forced to stop eating fat because of my gall stones and just did not feel hungry. DO you remember the Hip and Thigh Diet? Same principle.
    Currently I am trying to lose 10% of me in 2010.

    I am the owner of very many diet books too! Unfortunately due to ill health I now have to sick to them. Life without chocolate is just no fun at all… 🙂

  • Margaret Mayo says:

    Lacey, sorry to hear you suffer ill health. I would never have guessed from your cheerful voice!

    Michelle, I certainly remember the hip and thigh diet – though in those days I didn't need it. But now… Good luck with your plans. I haven't started mine yet, but as we've been invited to a wedding in July, and we have just booked a holiday for later in the year I now have an incentive.
