Ask the book buyer: Three books to help your healthy 2018 resolutions 


We are almost at the end of the first month of those New Year resolutions – so you might need a little bit of encouragement, especially if you are trying to lead a healthier lifestyle, says Jarrold book buyer Chris Rushby.


Lose Weight for Good: Full-flavour cooking for a low-calorie diet

Tom Kerridge

RRP £22

Jarrold price £17

Instore only

 Tom Kerridge is a Michelin-starred chef and obviously knows how to turn out delicious food. He also understands what it takes to turn your life and health around, having lost 11 stone in the last four years by following a low-carb diet. Now Kerridge has produced a recipe book to help those who want to go on the same path he has successfully trodden. The book accompanies his new TV series and is already a huge best-seller.


The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying

Marie Kondo

RRP £10.99

Part of ‘buy one, get one half-price’ offer


This quirky and fascinating book is about streamlining your possessions, rather than your body. The author is Japan's expert de-clutterer, her books and courses massively popular there. She provides a step-by-step method for transforming space by tidying the home in the correct order, all in one go and fast, being ruthless about which possessions are necessary and which can be dispensed with. This is really one of those potentially life-changing books.  



The Fat-Loss Plan: 100 Quick and Easy Recipes with Workouts

Joe Wicks

RRP £16.99

Jarrold price £8.49
