Real food is not processed, packaged, pasteurized or chemicalized. It has nothing is added to it, and nothing is taken away.

We said a collective, "awww," after reading this story about Alan and Jan Coupe, winners of the Slimming World Couple of the year award, who lost 210 lbs between them after being told that they were too heavy to sit together on an airplane. To lose weight, the couple joined a weight-loss program, altered their diets, and began bike-riding and swimming together. Romantic, right? Now, the Coupes are almost unrecognizable. We love the idea of staying fit as a couple—not just for the obvious health benefits, but also for the bonding experiences. We're not sure how many of these weight-loss methods Alan and Jan tried, but we figure that the happy couple would approve.
