The memory of all those tastes makes it easier to allow a sense of hunger to develop through the day.
I am still a lay down muzaire when it comes to social occasions and eye popping platters and up to mouth pleasures! The broccoli soup I'll swear, had cream in it, omg...the banana cake just asked to be buttered! But now, I can relish the rest. I can turn my attention elsewhere.
It's my all day all night light day. Saliva and enzymes can siesta a bit.
I'm on my day of fast/repair/replenish...
Tried 6:1 for a while but it wasn't enough. Rushing about doing what you do. Temptation came along. Why do workshops have c..p food I ask. I must have eaten too many carbs over the couple of conference days while I avoided the sandwiches I succumbed to cake and fruits
Then the late March weekend away in a cottage by the sea with ex work colleagues was much laughter, memory lane stories and of course we had lots of food and wine.

With friends around tonight, I want to cook something easy. Knowing they are likely to be on new year diets, I'm probably going...
I have not felt deprived in any way doing 5:2. I quite enjoy the fast days, and skipping breakfast and lunch to save all my calories for dinner suits my lifestyle. I find I enjoy chocolate and cake a lot more now because I don't eat them all the time. In general my food choices are better too. On non-fast days I have a fresh fruit salad for breakfast (something I was already doing before 5:2), usually a sandwich for lunch and whatever the rest of the family is eating for dinner. I seem to have lost my desire to snack (I...
