The Anti-diet & Veg juice
Kicking off (energy filled) 2014 here’s my route to living your life;employing a modicum of consciousness into your daily nourishment; and opting out of chronic and tortuous calorie counting along the way.
I guarantee you’ll feel healthier, have more energy and, should you so desire, lose weight in the process.
Happy wholesomely seductive eating!
The Anti-diet: Breakfast like a king
… and supper like a pauper. This is not an old wives tale. In actual fact, for many of us Brits consumed with work, breakfast is a coffee, and lunch a sandwich that can be eaten On the Go. The evening meal is our chance to blow all those daily-banked calories. You have the entire day to burn off breakfast; supper sleeps with you.
Beetroot, carrot, kiwi & ginger juice
I’m going to level with you: making veggie juice is a faff and your kitchen will resemble a war zone. I think it’s important you’re armed with the facts. For this very reason (and in the interests of keeping my job) I make a 3 ltr batch at the weekend, freezing 250ml bottles for morning shots. On the plus side, it’s quite therapeutic, systematically feeding mounds of goodness into a machine which instantly produces an elixir of health. And my skin and energy levels are rejoicing.
The Anti-diet: Blah blah moderation blahhh…
If you do nothing else, heed this tip. I could fill Santa’s sleigh with the Weight Watchers nemesis foods I sample each year, so it’s largely assumed I must have a chocolate spitting bowl. I don’t. It’s very simple but the vast majority of you won’t like what I’m about to say: I stop eating when I’m full.
