Product Features

The Secret to Skinny says that salt is the diet saboteur, as it is found in nearly everything we eat, including many of the diet foods we turn to when we want to shed the pounds. Salt will cause you to hold water and bloat, which is counterproductive to weight loss. The book features a four week plan that will help you lose a size or more, just by letting go of the salt. Letting go of the salt does not mean you have to sacrifice the flavor. The book gives you plenty of “salternatives” that will help you cut the salt out of your diet while still eating foods that taste great. In addition to these alternatives, you’ll get the four week plan, a two week meal plan, and tips and tricks to help fool your taste buds so you will not crave salt as much. You will also get a 10 day plan to help jump start your weight loss so you can get rid of those pounds even faster. You will also get information to help you cure the salt bloat hangover.
