I thought this would be a good way to get all my random thoughts down whilst doing it and for any advice that can be offered from more seasoned travellers.
I'm looking to lose about a stone. The number itself isn't really important, more how I look. In the past I have done Exante, low carb, paleo and even a bit of vegan. The one thing that seems to fill me up the most is protein. I have additional challenges in that i'm intolerant to wheat, gluten and dairy. Dairy I can sometimes get away with but only in small doses. Add into this a personal trainer who has already banned certain foods for me. The usual, sugar, white flour (even gluten free), potatoes, only sweet potatoes allowed before a workout and bacon.
The biggest thing for me is going to be carrots, bananas and porridge. I think if I can get through the induction it is going to be easier for me. I rarely eat pasta, when I do its a training day and its buckwheat pasta, occasionally brown rice. I prefer quinoa, puy lentils, kidney beans and chickpeas. My main concern is being able to sustain my high level workouts on the diet.
I have to go back and check (I have the book on my kindle). Where do I stand on the lentils or tofu front? I'm loving the look of the 'zoodles' and will be trying that.
