ROMANO, a nutritional consulting centre in Trinidad and Tobago assisted more than 1,500 Trinis to achieve weight loss last year. In 365 days, more than 800 people lost more than 30 lbs; more than 100 people lost more than 75 lbs; and close to 500 lost an average of 20-25 lbs on weight control programmes with the Romano Foundation.

Frank Tull, Senior Nutritional Consultant says a well balanced nutritional programme based on the low glycaemic index in combination with a blood type profile and exercise has a much better effect over the long term than a crash diet or the old fashioned low fat or low calorie diet.

He recommends the following weight loss programme:
