Easy to Read, Makes Sense and Actually Works!
on 23 August 2013
Like all Karen's books this was very easy to read and enjoyable - I completed the Kindle edition in a couple of sessions while on holiday (in France of course!) I thought it all made very good sense, seemed more sustainable than a lot of the lifestyle change fad diets around and given that my weight loss goals were very similar to the author's I thought I'd give it a go when I got back home to see how I compared.
That was 3 weeks ago....I lost an amazing 6 lbs in the 1st week, 2.5 lbs in week 2 and another 2.5 in week 3. My work colleagues are green with envy watching me eat cake and yoghurt for breakfast and proper meals at lunchtime and still losing weight while they are drinking weight-loss shakes and eating celery sticks but not losing anything!
I can't pretend it's always easy - I do feel empty when I go to bed and its a pain cooking for my husband in the evening and not eating mine till the next day but once you're in the routine its fine and well worth it given the results (which mean I am looking forward to getting on the scales each morning.) I always ate quite healthily anyway and always had a 12-14 hour fast overnight but I tended to eat very lightly in the day and consumed most calories in the evening, often quite late and not long before going to bed. Simply moving the times that I eat things, making them myself rather than buying pre-prepared food and being consistent with portion sizes seems to have made all the difference. Simple really.
Well done Karen, another good read and an extremely helpful subject. Thank you.
