porridge and other bruises
It also involves...porridge. As such a diet makes you, whisper it, constipated, you need some fibre intake, so you have to eat oat bran and wheat bran every day, and I have found that the best way is either in little pancakes or in porridge. I do cheat, as I make it with half oats and half oat bran, but oats are quite good cereals so I do not feel too guilty.
I think I have found how to make the perfect porridge. I soaked the oat mix overnight: ratio of 1 oat to 0.8 water and a pinch of salt. Next morning I add the remaining 0.2 of milk and bring it to the boil, then simmer slowly for two minutes, stirring continuously. Serve with a splash of milk and sweetener and it is delicious. Really sticks to your ribs, and in this cold weather you need it. Fat free, low in carbs and high in fibre. Oh God I sound like a bloody ad for Special K!!
Anyway I will keep you up to date with the great diet challenge. To tell you that this summer, down the allotment, one fellow came over thinking I was a newbie - he hadn't recognized that the lady gardening was still me. So it apparently is a noticeable weight loss :-)
Lost 12 kgs last year..... you go girrrrrrrl! The final 4 kgs should be off by spring and then you can dazzle those grumpy old men at your allotment site with your new stunning figure ;-) Good luck!
