French officials have revealed Michel Montignac, author of worldwide best-sellers on weight loss in the 1980s and 1990s, has died aged 66.

Montignac, who died last weekend, developed a crash diet based on never eating “bad” carbohydrates at the same time as fats after suffering from obesity himself as a child and battling persistent weight gain.

After testing the principle of disassociating the two on himself, losing 30 pounds (13.6 kilogrammes) in less than three months, he wrote “Dine Out and Lose Weight” in 1986, a book that shot to the top of the best-seller list in France where it sold half a million copies.
