The Diet

I know - another diet post, but Dr Mansfield has looked at my raw data and thinks I interpreted it wrong. He says that to him it looks like a sensitivity to whole milk, rather than to grapes, and that I stopped losing weight when that was included back into my diet.

He could be right.

I think I am going to do stage 1 again and then try milk again, and the other things that have a question mark... maybe starting Thursday.

But right now I am testing wine!

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

Hello, and thanks for stopping by. My name is Emma and I am a lifestyle entrepreneur, writer, teacher, coach and mentor. I am passionate about eating real food, learning, travel and health. I get to spend my days with my amazing son who has chosen to learn from the world rather than at school. We write to share the life we love and to help others create a life they love too.


  1. How much wine are you required to test? ;)

  2. Well, I managed a bottle (over three nights) and am sad to report that it makes me feel really old! My knees and my back started aching again and I move around more like an old woman, so I am really thinking there might be something in the grape issue. I will test again, but I used to eat grapes nearly every day (BB loves them so there are always some to snack on), and cook with grape seed oil, and take a supplement with grape seed extract in and of course drink wine and eat fruit cake...

    I have only tested green grapes and white wine though - a friend did say yesterday that she really thinks I should give the red ones a try!
