The strangest thing has happened to me. I threw myself into the path of the low carb high fat diet thingy initially for just a few weeks to check out the claims it made. Sure enough I lost 5 lbs in the first couple of weeks but amazingly I find that I am no longer interested in bread or biscuits or crisps or rice or pasta or even potatoes!! I buy more veg and loads of summer fruits that I lace with greek style natural yogurt. I cannot fall out of love with chocolate ( a step too far!!) but try to pacify the longing with jaffa cakes.
The scales don't really reflect the way I feel (which is much lighter) but slowly the excess weight around my hips is dissolving and my tummy is going down.
I feel that I am quite happy to continue eating this way for life whatever my weight. I just feel better. Has anyone else taken this route? My approach is not extreme but still effective.
