My stick-thin husband has no weight to lose and has lost 4lbs just eating similar foods to me. I am NOT a nutritionist. I make no claims that people will lose weight doing this. Mira wondered if it might help people who were interested.
I am 5ft tall and have had a few health issues recently. Oesophagitis, hiatus hernia and plantar fasciitis in my heels to name but a few.
When I had my gastroscopy recently, the consultant said I needed to lose a stone or two. But a stone, he added would make a huge difference to my oesophagitis. Easier said than done I know. I ignored his advice of course and then my son announced his wedding. His bride joined a slimming club and after a few more months I followed her eating advice when I saw she had lost 3 1/2 stone.
The eating plan is based on foods that speed up the metabolism. The foods have fewer calories than it takes to digest them . There is a mountain of food to eat and anytime hungry strikes...don't grab a biscuit, potato crisps or a cake, grab a food that speeds up your metabolism This is my new way of eating .
11 weeks on and I have lost 18 pounds, my plantar fasciitis in my heel has gone and my oesophagus is healed. My skin is glowing, I am sleeping better and feel great. I would like to lose about 20 lbs.
