Thanks everyone for your lovely comments about my frock!
So March 22nd sees the start of my Fast 800 week 3 adventure !
Measuring day is a Monday and I am so pleased to announce that
Hey Tracey, it’s called Fast 800
There is a lot more of information out there and Dr Micheal Mosley has done TV programmes about it and it’s all based on science and insulin etc and at heart I am a scientist - specifically a biologist.
It’s very very very different to SW which served me well but as I wrote in another post I was unable to get back to it successfully.
Basically when you sign up you get to access the massive database of menus and they then give you a sample menu for the week, which you can chop and change according to tastes and dietary preferences. This then creates a shopping list which makes it easier in one respect as in taking the hard work out of it. The shopping list is ordered by classification of foodstuffs. I wouldn’t say it’s very much more expensive than a normal shop.
Yesterday I made
Orange ‘ice cream’
and Mediterranean chicken.
As ever - photos not in any relevant order!
Using good quality real ingredients has to be better for me than endless mullerlight a which feature heavily on SW! I do love a mulllight mind you but what I found/imagined, is that my arthritis is very much more painful when eating artificial sweeteners and sugar.
Lunch was cottage cheese and eggs and tea
Right time to post and away I go!
Lots of love from
