There goes another kilogram!

It's now day 10, I have been reintroducing foods for a few days and all is going well - so far I haven't shown any sensitivity to anything. The weight is still falling off too. My size 18 jeans that I ordered (in a previous post) less that two weeks ago, have arrived and really are too big. I can actually take them off and on without undoing them. Unfortunately my only belt isn't quite long enough to go round me yet either so for the moment I am hitching up my jeans all the time. I bought some size 16's too, but the zip pops on those when I bend down so I need a little longer to feel comfortable wearing them.



Anyway, that's 4kg in 10 days. It is a lot isn't it! I have heard all those stories about how you shouldn't lose weight too fast, and the general response I am getting from people hints at that too (especially if they are trying to lose weight themselves!). I suppose there is a small concern there from me, but my overriding feeling is one of being thrilled with the results. Dr Mansfield says in his book that it would only be a worry if I were on a calorie restriction diet, but that in this case it is a result of removing foods that I am sensitive too so that my body is able to normalise it's weight.

I certainly haven't been doing any calorie restriction. In fact in that sense, it is the easiest diet I have ever done as I am eating as much as I like and so never have to feel hungry, or faff about weighing or measuring, or even planning my meals - I just eat what I fancy (from the list of course) whenever I like. The only rule on this diet is that you eat from the list specified foods, there is no set limit on quantity. I have been eating a lot of nuts, and can tell from how much the bottle has gone down that I have also used about 300ml of olive oil, so there are plenty of fats being consumed too.

I do think I am eating less though, but that is because I am feeling less hungry. Since I had BB I have noticed that sometimes eating just makes me hungry. I haven't had this feeling since I have been on the diet. I often get that when I eat pasta, so it could be wheat or tomatoes that does it. I'll see what happens when I reintroduce those.


If you are interested in buying the book it is available at AmazonWaterstones and The Book People. It maybe be worth checking them all as prices do change. Amazon also have a Kindle Version
