Last week I documented my diet struggle (oh woe is me) and this week is no different, however get ready for a far more positive spin on the whole situation I know many ladies out there can only empathise with, and some gents.
With London Fashion Week AW13 now well under way I have already found myself being bombarded with image after image of beautiful models and their equally beautiful figures (minus those of the more skeletal variety), not to mention all the gorgeous clothes already on show; so yet another incentive to say NO to cheese burgers etc. as I sob into my celery stick stash.
When you are on any kind of super strict diet it can feel as through you are depriving yourself of any sort of enjoyable foods and things can get pretty boring, pretty fast. The thing is though, you can’t deprive yourself of the finer things in life forever can you, so what the hell happens next?
On T.V lately there appears to be several diet programs advertised that deliver specially made healthy meals to your door, sounds ideal doesn’t it? However, if like me, you’re a rather picky eater and this option is slightly out of reach due to the expense then maybe it’s time to start taking matters into your own hands.
For example, I have recently compiled a list of all the foods I actually enjoy that are healthy and far less calorific, which I assumed would be few and far between, but more often than not, chances are there will be more then you thought. Then categorized said food list into meal appropriate sections (e.g. natural yoghurt – breakfast, possibly dessert) and with the help of my new best friend Google, mixed in with a bit of creativity, I came up with several easy recipes resulting in a far less fatty daily food intake and voila, my very own DIY diet. One that does not make you contemplate jumping off a cliff all because you ate two chocolates from that box of Valentine’s Milk Tray you promised you wouldn’t. Just an idea…
I must stress to you all that I’m no dietitian and that you should really consult your Doctor before undertaking any kind of drastic change to your diet.
