Young Melbourne wife and mother Karen Gatt was once so overweight, a whopping 136 kilos, that she could barely walk to the letterbox. Simple things like playing with her kids in the local park or buying a pair of jeans were out of her reach. She tried every diet she'd ever heard of, but none of them worked. Then she decided to take matters into her own hands. She shed 67 kilos, safely and sensibly, without the trouble and expense of going on special diets or joining weight loss programs. She simply devised an easy-to-follow, highly effective system for healthy eating, and began regular exercise - power walking around the clothesline in her backyard! "The Clothesline Diet" is the inspirational and practical tool for everyone who wants to lose weight and keep it off, without gimmicks or fad diets.
