I have realised over the last few years I have been trying to do a low cal low carb diet. Reading the new Gary Taubes book: Why we get fat and what to do about it. I have seen that the idea behind these diets is to increase the fat and oil intake while dropping the carbs.

I am still very fat phobic and feel that I am tempting fate by increasing my fat intake but I did do it yesterday by having an extra meal mid afternoon which helped me get through to supper. I know I have reactive hyperglycemia which is the cause of the overeating and generally feeling terrible in the afternoons. Yesterday I had no problem at all. I also feel much better this morning and full of energy and plans.

Will carry on like this and see what the scale does. I have a feeling that it is going to increase by about 1lb a week! Will be brilliant if I can lose weight and eat like this.
