Day 256

Monday 12th September 2016

Sometimes I get a bit amazed that I am still sticking to my healthy eating plan. 

When I first saw Jenny I started on the metabolic balance programme which is healthy eating especially designed for me. People who do it all get different foods that they can choose from. For instance, I couldn’t eat beef to start with. Beef contains acid and I had to lower the acid levels so I didn’t eat beef for a while. But others might have beef on their list.  I can eat it now though. 

My food diary is a lot more relaxed than when I first started. There are a few phases I have been through

Phase 1 – a two day detox, which was horrible!

Phase 2 – Two weeks of protein and vegetables with no oil or butter which was a little better but not much. I had the shakes a lot and went through food withdrawals and I didn’t have much energy either. 

Phase 3 – The same as phase 2 but I could add oil and butter. This stage was great as I could add a lot more flavour to my food. It took a while though for the shakes to go and to get my energy back but it did return. 

I am now on relaxed phase 3 – it’s the same but a few more foods have been added like beef, oats and a few more vegetables. 

At the beginning Jenny told me that you can live on relaxed phase 3.  I didn’t believe her. At the time I didn’t even think I would get past phase 1!

But I did and I am still going. I feel like the Duracell bunny – I could go on and on and on. 


Eventhough I could keep going it doesn’t stop me on occasions from getting really bored. My food diary now is so much more limiting from what I was eating last year. The only difference is that I was piling on the weight last year and this year it’s doing the opposite. 

So the times I get bored I remember how far I have come and not wanting to go back. 

Ok so my food is a little more limiting but I am also preferring all the flavours now and I don’t think I could ever go back even if I wanted to.
