Here is an update on the Lipotrim diet I have been following…
I have hit my target weight of 13st 7lbs, and I am very pleased! It took me a total of 51 days to lose 3st 9lbs, an amazing thing whichever way you want to look at it.
I am not going to pretend it was easy. Yes, there were times when I considered stopping and thought it wasn’t working, but these ‘blips’ (for that’s all they were) soon passed. I never once felt physically hungry, but there were moments when I could have taken a big bite out of a burger, not because I wanted or needed it, but emotionally I wanted it. Again, these cravings passed, the trick was to pursue a new train of thought and not get buried in thoughts about food.
It may sound counter-intuitive but I took to reading books and watching TV programs about food. The River Cottage [link] and The Hairy Bikers [link] were particular favourites. I believe I have developed a new respect for food as a result of this diet. The only way to keep the weight off and stay healthy is to cook better food. I have even started to bake my own bread, even though I was unable to eat it! Although I have been told it tastes good.
