Our last few days away were sprinkled with junk food and bread. This is far removed from our normal way of eating. We had little choice sometimes, and here is a list of what I ate:
Scampi and chips
Fish, chips and mushy peas
Fried chicken and chips
Beer and wine
In fact, I imagine our food was not disimilar to most people going on holiday at a seaside town with children. We were definitely not fine dining, and neither were we really restricting ourselves.
On our return we weighed about the same (partner lost 1/2 lb), but one day later we were touching our all time low. My body actually feels different today. I can't explain it, but I know I have reached a new shift in weight, and I know there is more to come.
It's as if by eating lots and lots of whatever we want for a few days has tricked the body once again. That is our ONE philosophy - eat whatever we want for 3 days of the week (usually at weekends) then eat really good for 4 days (for me that's around 1500 calories). Add a bit of walking here and there and that's it. This constant swing in food intake has given us fantastic results, and it feels effortless.
