I started my journey to lose weight and be as fit as I could for my 50th (2012)! I’ve used many ways throughout my 7 year membership on the weight loss website I subscribe to, to keep my journey interesting and to learn what works best for me – I am very short (4ft 8″), … Continue reading Lifetime changes for a long life
I’m soooo happy! At weigh in this morning, I am back below 10 stone! In the 6 weeks of the blood sugar diet I have lost 12lb, which is massive, as my goal weight is 9st 7lbs. The approximate weight one can expect to lose during the 8 weeks of 800 calories steering clear of … Continue reading Blood Sugar Diet – week 6
I’m back to doing the 8-week Blood Sugar Diet for the next 6 weeks – having returned from two week long holidays and before we embark on a 2 week holiday in December which will be closely followed by Christmas. I did the same last year – starting one week earlier – and managed an … Continue reading Crunchy spiced chickpeas – 57 calories per portion
I’m just back from a week long trip to Athens to visit our family there – sister-in-law, her husband (who is Greek), their 3.5 year old son who we’ve not seen for over a year and the “new addition”, a 4 month old little girl. The hotel we stayed in (Brasil Suites Hotel) was truly … Continue reading 8 Week Blood Sugar Diet
I made these often during my Blood Sugar Diet weeks – and sometimes even in between! They are very easy to make, use staple store cupboard ingredients and are delicious and filling. Two are usually enough! You may be tempted to try more! Complemented beautifully with fresh or defrosted frozen berries and a dollop of … Continue reading Coconut Pancakes Recipe
I started the 8 week Blood Sugar Diet on 17th October, with almost exactly 8 weeks until I go on my next holiday! One thing I have noticed almost immediately (and other have reported similarly) is that my energy levels have risen. I wake in the morning at around 6 – 7am, feeling refreshed and … Continue reading Moving in the right direction….
Sorry for the long spell between posts! I’ve been continuing with the weight loss, mainly sticking to the Blood Sugar principles (cutting out bread, pasta, potatoes, rice and anything with grains, flour, etc). The weight has gone up and down but overall from my last post I’m down a few pounds, and we’ve had holidays … Continue reading DEXA Scan
People either love or detest fennel. I am one of the former – just can’t get enough of the stuff! The nutrients in fennel are reputed to be linked to a range of health benefits. Bone health – the vitamin and mineral content in fennel contributes to building and maintaining bone structure and strength. Blood … Continue reading Roasted Fennel with Parmesan – 166 calories
I’m always sad to see the end of the Summer (I love the sun!) but Autumn is my favourite season. There’s something about those sharply cold and often dark mornings and evenings. When it’s dry and sunny (which it has been so far) I want to leap out of bed and get on with my … Continue reading The arrival of Autumn
The great thing about the Blood Sugar Diet is… that you rarely feel hungry. I completed 7 weeks of the 800 calories a day diet. It’s supposed to be a minimum of 8 weeks and a maximum of 12, but I had a holiday at the beginning of December. I am pleased to report that I … Continue reading Christmas Eve Cheese!
