For the past two weeks I've been on a diet. Not that I think I'm incredibly overweight of anything it's just that since turning 40 a few months ago I've noticed that it's a little bit tougher to fit into my jeans than it used to be. My trousers are all 32" waist and it seems that my waistline seems to think it's 33" pushing 34". I used to be able to slip two fingers in between my waist and my jeans. Now I can't even slip one finger in. Not that I've any issue with gaining the odd pound or two but since I'm guzzling beer and eating chips and chocolate all the time I guess things could only get worse. So something had to be done.
So on January 1st 2002 I started my low-carbohydrate diet for a month. So no pasta, no bread, no potatoes, no beer, no sugar. And definitely no chocolate. What I can eat is protein and fat. So it's all steaks, roast lamb, pork, chicken, turkey, cream, eggs, cheese, full-fat mayonnaise, butter, vodka, white wine and salad. Quite an easy diet to stick to really.
And the results? Well, they speak for themselves. I've lost over 2kg in under two weeks. Already I can slide into my G-Star's as easily as the day I bought them. So it's back to slipping in those two fingers I guess too. Missus.
