              There is a chemist brand diet ad that annoys me. The presenter says the objective is a "VLC" diet to induce ketosis to lose weight. She then says VLC = very low calorie. huh?

                    B: large black coffee and cheesy omelette with v little tomato and bacon
                    L: late - small tin pink salmon
                    D: client dinner - at Italian, shared pork belly, chicken schnitzel, meatballs, bread :-( glass of red wine, white coffee...onto
                    chai tea

                    victory though - was tempted to finish of night with more wine when moved on after dinner, but went to coffee place instead of bar. tick. then normally when I drink I can't stick to one, and was fighting impulse t get a bottle of red on way home, but didn't. tick. so that's positive!


                    • Well done on overcoming the wine impulses. I do believe that eating good primal food early in the day (like your cheesy omelette), helps one gain the strength required for making the more difficult positive choices later on. Good to see you keeping on keeping on.

                          • geez. I suck at this. I have been on and off, and reading the blog, but the forum has been too weird these days to follow. Its a shame, having a connection with the forum seems to help me stick with it.
                            Fascinated with all the antisugar media at the moment. and the Catalyst programs - wow.

                            Anyway, really battling to keep my alcohol intake in check, it completely ruins everything. It is the literal switch between attemptine to have good lifestyle or not.

                            So Monday no alcohol. A lamb burger with cauliflower and sweet potato mash and brocolli. Lamb cutlets and eggplant and potato with sour cream for dinner.

                            Today, black coffee with coconut cream and cinnamon for breakfast. Chicken korma (whatever that is, just had the saucy chicken) and greens for lunch. To avoid bottleshops got a cab straight home - strange meal of left over eggplant, left over cold beef so ennded up having with chutney and cheese on vita wheats. then because I 'broke primal' I decided to fk it up completely and found a magnum icecream. BUT 2 days no alcohol. Its a start. again.

                                exercise is a no go for now. having an allergic reaction to something and have hot angry rashes all over my body. very hot anyway and cant get even slightly hot or it sets the rashes off. maybe my body is trying to foil my plans to start exercising! maybe my body is simply screaming 'give me back my bread, sugar, chocolate, pizza, burgers and other random take away!'.
                                anyway up to my eyeballs in antihistamines and now, steroids.
