Rules

Hi,

I happened to listen to a radio 4 programme on Saturday about groups of people who have extreme diets.

One of the things that they all have in common is that they stick to a set of rules which govern what they eat. This struck me as a n eureaka moment.

I have now set rules to what and how much I eat. I also have set caalorie limits for each meal and have followed a tip from another follower with several meals calorie counter so I variables for every meal each day.

I will see how this works.

Hi AJC1957,

Have you talked to the doctor about the change in your diet? How many carbs and calories are you allowed at each meal and snack?

My partner followed the Rosemary Conley diet with some success.

I think it depends on your personality, but I also find having a clear set of rules to follow makes food decisions easier

I'll check out that program. It sounds really interesting, thanks for posting

Be careful not to rebound on such a low fat diet. It sometimes works initially, but as our bodies need some fat, it's not sustainable.

I stick to what I thought was cranky when I first read about it, which is having restrictive eating times. I stop eating early in the evening & fast until late morning. Inbetween, I drink water. My calorie intake has increased, which is good as I eat a high amount of healthy fats, but it's rare for me to be hungry as long as I've eaten enough late morning & early evening.

I like eating too much to try reducing calories on two days of the week, but find I can eat what I want if I restrict my eating window to 6-8 hours. If I eat at normal times for a week, when I'm away, I put weight on, as expected, but it's easy to loose when I go back to what's now my normal eating routine,
