For the past month, or so, I've actually cut down on all the above, and have even (temporarily) stopped eating cooked breakfasts. Those bacon sandwiches, or fried eggs on toast, have been put aside in favour of Muesli; the miracle food of Dr Maximilian Bircher-Benner. I am also trying to stick to just a simple bowl of soup for lunch; no more cheese, sausage, paté, etc. I must be consuming at least 500 Calories a day less than previously.
It's not that I think that fatty fried foods are bad for me, it's just that I wish to see what effect sticking to a reasonably rigid diet will have on my three-monthly blood test. (The Christmas period may not be the best time to try this)
I could just buy a selection of dried fruit and nuts, and mix them in with some rolled Oats, but I prefer to buy a pack of sugar-free 100% natural Alpen, and do a 50/50 mixing with some plain natural Oats. It also tastes really good.
I'm expecting my cholesterol to be lower, my glycemic index to be more balanced, and of course to lose a bit of weight. I've already lost 5 Kilos.
I'll let you know.
