PLENTY TO EAT

YOU Best Diets - - Metabolism Diet -

DID YOU ENJOY THIS DIET?

The best thing was that I was never hun­gry. It felt like I was al­ways eat­ing! And the food was de­cent, not “rab­bit” food (let­tuce leaves, car­rot sticks and cel­ery, typ­i­cal of many di­ets).

WHAT WERE THE DRAW­BACKS?

The part I en­joyed the least was the food prepa­ra­tion. You need to plan ahead and really be or­gan­ised all the time to pull off this diet. Be­ing or­gan­ised is some­thing that, out­side of work, I am not!

WAS THERE ENOUGH VA­RI­ETY?

Yes. I don’t cook of­ten, so the va­ri­ety of food left me feel­ing op­ti­mistic and ex­cited to ex­per­i­ment in the kitchen.

WAS IT EASY TO STICK TO?

I found the plan dif­fi­cult to stick to be­cause I would have a few days of plan­ning ad­e­quately then a few days of be­ing com­pletely un­der­pre­pared – es­pe­cially when I was trav­el­ling (which was most of the time).

I found that I just wasn’t able to keep up with the diet dur­ing spe­cial oc­ca­sions such as wed­dings.

WOULD YOU REC­OM­MEND IT?

It’s a healthy way to lose weight. The food choices aren’t lim­ited and you won’t be starved.

WHAT’S YOUR AD­VICE?

Make it fun – play around in the kitchen once you’ve un­der­stood the ba­sic prin­ci­ples of the diet.
