I've been a stone and a half overweight for a loooonng time. And now that Hagos is on a five week tour I thought it would be a good opportunity to shift it.
I've lost weight using this method before. Essentially I can eat fish, vegetables, fruit, soup, salad, porridge and beans, also a little bit of brown rice and occasional wholewheat pasta. I don't eat bread, sweets, chocolate, cakes, white pasta or white rice.
Three of the very helpful companies/products I use are: Covent Garden Soup Company; Innocent Smoothies; and Tropical Wholefoods fruit bars - because they all contain fresh ingredients and no crap whatsoever. The fruit bars are a lifesaver sometimes. They take the edge off a sweet craving.
And I go to the gym.
It's day one and I've done well so far. Part of the trick of this working is to be prepared! and to substitute all the crap I eat with healthy things I like. I love everything I'm now eating. And not to go hungry.
I'll report back in five weeks' time!
