Make that someone special in your life feel extra special with this Valentines themed fatloss breakfast. The (small amount of) effort required will mean more than any shop bought gift, especially if they’re watching their weight. Nothing says ‘you don’t listen to what I say’ more than a box of chocolates given to someone who’s trying to be healthier! Feel free to subtly forward this email to your significant other, ladies.
