Well it is the end of day 24... which officially marks my longest ever stretch on this diet without a f*** up, binge, cheat or anything else!
The first time I did this diet, back in 2008, I was doing brilliantly, when we found on on day 21 of my diet that my brother had been offered a job in Menorca for the summer and would be leaving in a few days. So my dad decided we all had to go out for a big meal as a send off.
Stupidly I absolutely binged that night. 3 courses of lard. Chiquitos. Can't remember what I ate, I just remember being violently ill that night. Eating such a massive amount of carbs and fat and calories that night caused my insides to basically go nuts. I was up all night with violent pains as my liver expanded and tried to cope with the influx of junk. So so poorly. It was a massive lesson learnt the very hard way!
After that I struggled to get back on the diet. I did manage to stick to it about 80%, but had lots of little extra additions. This was in the days before SS+, and I was justifying all sorts of little extras. Amazingly I still managed to lose weight, but it was more down to my low calorie intake rather than specifically the diet. I lost a total of 5 stone in 3 months - still hoping I can replicate the same this time, especially as I am being a lot more disciplined and committed than I was the first time!!!!
