Even the new ‘two day fasting’ diets are full of recipes. Bits of salmon or strips of chicken cooked in different ways with just ‘one handful’ of sugar snaps, or a teeny weeny portion of spinach! Nothing about a big bag of ‘leaves’ happily wilting in the bottom of my fridge!
One article advocates that the ‘woman’ has oven baked smoked haddock for lunch while on the same day ‘the guy’ has roast mackerel! Almost the same calories! And I wonder which one of the pair is supposed fiddle about in the kitchen preparing this lot! Presumably both parties have a job… or two!
Luckily the breakfasts looked like the easiest option! I’ll forget the recommended brekky day one, settle for my cappucino at the gym after aqua, go for the best of the brekkies for the guys, two poached eggs on toast for lunch and even one of the ‘girly’ breakkies with fruit and things for tea.
Fiddly fastings not for me, I crave scones and jam for tea!
I’ll run, I’ll walk I’ll even swim, I’ll get to aqua at the gym,
I’ll do my best without a doubt, but endless recipes are out!
