When you’re trying to lose weight, you’d be forgiven for thinking that:

a) snacking between meals would be a no-no

b) there would be nothing sweet allowed on the meal plans (especially not chocolate), and

c) healthy food would be expensive and difficult to prepare

Well thanks to the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge we have proven all of the above fears wrong.
