This is what happens when you read too many health and nutrition lifestyle magazines! You make silly plans. I had the best intentions so abandoned plan a and opted for: recalibrate my eating habits.
For three days I ate a vegan diet with lots of fruit and veg and smoothies and soups. In addition to my Bikram level water intake, this flushed my system well and got me off the sweet-fat-indulgent bandwagon. It also broke my psychological need for coffee in the morning. My diet has been much improved, with a greater emphasis on vegetables and deeply nutritious foods. Even now I’m still more conscious of what I eat and when. The bonus is that I’ve lost a few more pounds and I’m taking much better care of myself. 16 months ago
