I've successfully reached Day Four of my new diet. I'm doing the India and Nerys' Idiot Proof Diet, which in itself is similar to the Zone, and the Atkins, i.e. low carbohydrate.
It's remarkably easy to do - although hard to see how it will work. As a vegetarian in particular, and not eating beans at this stage of the diet its hard finding enough protein. So I have eaten lots of cheese, and some quorn, tofu, eggs and um, cream. The principle is that you need to eat good fat to lose fat. I understand this, but am struggling to incorporate saturated fat in to my good fat equation - like cream and butter.
But I trust in the diet so will continue. Breakfast is particularly hard though as I'm not eating any carbs, milk, fruit or yogurt at the moment. I had a boiled egg today, but strangely peanut butter and wholesome peanut butter yesterday.
Of course I haven't completely given up coffee, in the diet it must be decaff - but have decided to just reduce intake ( a bit). Again with booze, supposed to detox completely at the start, but have cheated with couple of glasses. Being very strict with other sugar though.
According to the diet I will feel pants tomorrow, unless little amendments to diets will sort me out, so steeling myself for that. I'm just writing down notes for nursery tomorrow so not a busy day.
