The Succeder needs to be aware of what he (or she) is eating. So I do Nutritional Counselling.

   To be a Succeeder you have to eat food that is harmonious for you. You’ve heard about all the different diets on offer – low-carb, no-carb, bi-carb, whatever. They’re all rubbish. Ditch the Dumb diets!

   Forget the Fads! Listen to L-Vo. It’s simple and it works. You must eat only food that begins with the same letter as your name. This is the Alphabet Diet. This is Spellology© applied to Food and it will help you give 166 per cent even on a Tuesday.

   So, for example, I am L-Vo. Hence, I eat lamb, leeks, liver, lettuce (Lamb’s lettuce is doubly good), lozenges, luxury mince pies from Marks & Spencer, and anything from Lebanon.

   But that may not work for you (unless your name begins with an L). One man’s meat is another man’s mackerel. I allowed my assistant Nikki to eat only nuts, noodles and Nestlé products.

   You can change to a different initial every month. So next month, I can eat things starting with V, then S the following month. You may want to bear this in mind when naming your children.

   And this might be a problem for people with only one name (for example, Pink who was so keen to ‘Get the party started’).
