Been doing some research on the internet and found details of a book about a low grain diet. This is not the atkins diet where you eat lots of meat and fatty foods.
This is an eating plan where you replace the grain foods with mainly vegetables.
She says that some people become addicted to carbohydrates and I am sure I was one of them. The more I ate the more I wanted and I felt bloated and sleepy after stuffing myself with bread.
So I am now bread free. I still have rice occasionally with my main meal and my bran cereal in the morning.
Have now lost 12lbs without feeling deprived and my face and bust have slimmed down. Feeling a lot more active and tidying up dark corners of my house and chucking rubbish out.
In Lusaka tomorrow so will go for a curry for lunch and get some tinned tomato relish and have that for dinner.
Hope to lose another couple of pounds and get under the 14 stone mark in the next 2 weeks.
