I have just spent an amazing 2 hours with my counsellor, and she spoke the most truth anyone has spoken to me in years! She is a committed Cambridge consultant and also a nutritionist. We ran through every detail of the cambridge diet but she also spoke alot about nutritional things to do with body types. Just from listening to my story she could tell whether I was a protein type or carb type of body (she said probably a protein). She measured my BMI and also my ashwell shape (all new to me!). We talked loads about 'after the diet' and which foods would make me eat like mad and which would fuel me correctly (ie whether i was a protein or carb person). She really took the time to explain how a body type reacts the fuel (type) we eat, it makes perfect sense and I can see how my lust for carbs is actually poisoning me and therefore im gaining weight, have no energy etc etc. So, I had to do a wee sample and it showed slight ketosis (dark pink). She basically said either I was going into ketosis (I didnt eat carbs yesterday) or I am bordering on diabetes which coupled with my ashwell shape (take action) is a good indicator I am a prime target for diabetes. But she was not worried as she was confident that would turn around in a few weeks. So, all in all she totally opened my eyes and made me think of the health side of things also. I havent felt hungry today at all (which reinforces the ketosis theory) so i'm hoping it is that and not that I am actually bordering on diabetes. She also gave me a chocolate mousse to try that she had made earlier...it was fab! I'm gonna need to keep that one away from the kids lol. I feel great right now!
