I am now on the Atkins diets. Although I may veer off it a little. I have just got over yet another cold, and missed another week and a half of exercise. As it is now Spring, and I want to get fit for the summer, I need to take more drastic action. So it is time for a diet. Or, more precisely, the Atkins Nutritional Approach.
I have purchased the book, and started reading it today. But it was while walking to work this morning that I decided to start the diet. The Atkins diet is not too dissimilar to the diet that I adopted a few years ago, where I ate less carbs, none after pm. It is also similar to some parts of the Bruce Lee Diet. Refined flour / white flour / sugars are all out completely. No empty calories as Bruce Lee used to say.
Basic rules that apply to me:
NO HOT CHOCOLATE
NO FRUIT JUICE
Stuff I eat:
SALAD ITEMS (BUT NOT SWEETCORN)
FISH (WITHOUT TOO MUCH TOM SAUCE)
So really it will be like my normal diet, but without the bread and cakes.
Today I had:
3 fried eggs
scotch egg (probably too much carbs here)
salad – lettuce, baby spinach, coleslaw, beetroot,
Two tins of mackerel in tomato sauce
two thick slices of Pilgrim’s Choice Mature Cheddar.
2 cups of tea
1 cup of coffee
water, water and more water.
