Well as expected I'm fat bloater of the week. I've no-one to blame but myself as I gave up totally on the diet and ate normal food. The problem is, is that when I reach my ideal weight - how can I go back to a normal diet if I just put the weight back on? The thought of spending eternity suffering just to be a more socially acceptable weight is crazy - especially as the whole reason I need to lose weight is cos I need to remove as many of the unattractive features of me as possible. Except being unhappy cos I'm not eating properly is surely just as bad as being unhappy cos I'm overweight. If only being single forever was a viable option.


so I am curious as to what this diet is.....

Do tell!


It's very simple. Each day you can either choose to have a "red" or a "green" day. On a red day you're allowed to eat unlimited amounts of raw fruit and veg and lean meat as long as it's not cooked with oil/fat - so basically a protein based day. A green day is the same except the meat is replaced with pasta/potatoes/rice/etc - a carbohydrate day.

On top of this, you're meant to have a portion of milk or cheese, plus 2 portions of other semi-healthy but important food stuffs. Like bread or cereal. And then finally everything else is allocated a sin value and you're allowed a certain number of sins per day.

So on the face of it, it seems really simple...but not when you're stuck in the middle of nowhere with the only source of food being a really crap canteen or packed lunches. The only real way to stay on top of the diet is to prepare all your own food, which isn't practical without access to a kitchen.

I guess most of the problem is that I'm not a very good cook and don't really like many foodstuffs.
