So from now on no bread, pasta, potatoes, sugar and - sadly - no beans or lentils. It's the most counter-intuitive thing you can imagine, which is intriguing in itself. Like, I can have butter but no toast, mayonnaise but no fries, and I've got to switch from skimmed milk in my coffee to double cream. All in aid of losing the blubber!
I've got no idea whether this is going to work, or whether I'll just suffer a huge suger-crash and end up slaughtering the neighbours with an axe and stealing their cookies. But I'm more likely to stick to the rules if I have to confess here.
Breakfast: Scrambled eggs (3) with butter and cream. Veggie sausage. Half a tomato.
Lunch: Goats' cheese and pecan-nut salad.
Dinner: Crustless asparagus quiche. Sauted greens.
Snack: Half an avocado.
Are you getting the picture? The food's lovely, but very rich and fatty. I've eaten 4.5 eggs today and am thinking I may not go to the toilet for a week. There's a lot of washing up generated - a concept new to this microwave-meal fan. Jeez, how do you get baked egg off a pan?
Still, obsessing over the Green Book of The Law keeps my mind off all the other stuff going on this week...
