    The club has three membership levels and you can sign up here.

    1) Forum Member. From a little more than £1 per month you can participate as often as you like in the lively club forum, get support from other club members and share your experiences and learnings with other members. You’ll no doubt come in asking ‘daft’ questions, but we don’t consider any question daft – many other members will dive in to help you within minutes (sometimes seconds!) Within weeks, if not days, you will be an expert helping others and this will feel so good!

    2) Club Member. From less than £1 per week, this is the most popular and best value club membership option. For barely the price of a cucumber, this will give you: full forum access; access to all the articles, videos, and the growing library of FAQ’s; and access to all back issues of our magazine “Diet & Health Today”. In this we cover the ‘big issues’ from “Why don’t I lose weight if I eat less?”; “Where do the calories go?!”; “Where does exercise fit in with weight loss?”; “Why have I got fat around my middle especially?”
    Club Membership also gets you access to a private 'Ask Zoe' forum, where you can get your more challenging questions answered by Zoe, herself.
    As soon as you join at this level (and you can unsubscribe at any time) you have immediate access to all back issues of the magazine, weekly diet tips and the full information ‘library’. This membership provides excellent value for money and is our most popular membership plan.

    3) Plus membership will give you everything that Club Membership offers – all the FAQ’s, videos, articles, magazine back issues, 'Ask Zoe' private forum, unmoderated forum access. PLUS – Plus members can have their own personal blog running and a personal photo album. You can customise your blog and many members are having great fun putting their experiences and opinions on line for others to see and to keep an online diary of their own progress. As the club is openly available for viewing, you can send friends and family the link to your blog so that they can follow you without needing to be members.

    There are a number of ‘super members’ in the club who are also on hand to answer your queries – we will be helping you together!

    Blood Pressure: Is lower better?

    Imagine that a doctor said: “I’d like you to take this pill. It will reduce your risk of dying by 30%.” You’d pretty seriously consider it, if not jump at the chance...

    The story

    I happened to be in the car, with Radio 4 tuned in, last Wednesday at 3.30pm. Dr. Mark Porter’s programme, Inside Health, had just started and I heard a researcher saying that his trial had been stopped just over three years into a five year study because the benefit was already so dramatic. This is the holy grail of randomised controlled trials – ‘we just had to stop the trial because it was unethical not to treat the control group because the intervention group was doing so well’. Having seen this happen more than once, it can also happen, funnily enough, when gaps that had emerged between the two groups start to narrow...

    Vegetarian Chilli Vegetarian chilli is another classic recipe that every household cook should be able to dish up at any time. This is a really filling dish and great for re-heating for quick meals. As the beans provide protein, this can be eaten as a meal in itself, if you don’t have time to do rice or a baked potato to go with it. ...
