The last time this happened, the doctor ended up steadily reducing my dosage and eliminating it over about an 8 month period. Wish me luck!
Planned it out with what I had in my pantry. Boiled egg to start (waited till 10.30am), tuna and cucumber for 'lunch' going to wait till 2.30 and go for a walk as well. Then I have half a banana to help me hold out till dinner tonight which is malyasian laksa soup. All totaling 475 calories, which is a bit under.

I told one of my customers...
I have decided on a healthy eating/diet plan that I think will work for me. One of the hardest things in my opinion, is finding a regime that works for you. It is too easy to see what others have done (peers, siblings, celebrities) and slavishly copy them. I am bucking the trend and am going to do the following:
* Fast two days of the week (always a Monday and one other day to be decided on an ad hoc basis. The reason for the Monday fast is because I'll have a big Sunday dinner and so it makes sense to make the following day afast day.)
* Eat healthily for the remaining three working days of the week. This means trying to stick to around 1200 - 1500 cals per day and eschewing wine for the five working days of the week. This...
