Happy Pancake Day everyone! Just to let you know that the diet is not going too well today. I've had 2 pancakes - both with golden syrup on. That was quite good for me though - I could normally eat about 8 and still not be full. (I wonder why the weetabix tin is still out. I don't eat weetabix on pancakes). I'm still eating loads of fruit and veg, but am still craving sweet stuff.
A friend of mine from work has been on a 'British Heart Foundation Diet' where you are guaranteed to lose a stone in a week. I liked the sound of that, so she gave me a copy. I am very dubious that it has come from such a reliable source though - a stone in a week is surely not healthy (however tempting it may sound!) Her husband managed it though and she has done 11 lbs in 2 weeks. The diet is severe in every sense of the word. It's more like a starvation diet - I think I could manage a couple of hours on that at most. I need more than a hard-boiled egg for breakfast and then nothing until my lunch of fruit and then tea of lettuce and tomatoes. Don't eat anything after 6 pm either. What about my mars bar at supper time?
Ah well, I think I'll just plod on, eating normally, but without all the cakes and biscuits, sweets and chocolates. Ah, but that is all I do eat normally.
Lent tomorrow - anybody giving anything up? I'm going to give up chocolate, and will try to stop with the cakes, biscuits and sweets too. Try being the very big word!
