No meat to report on as I'm keeping myself pure before next weekend when I'm off to Dorset with some friends. Old Marky boy is a bit of a hot shot in the kitchen and the menu for the weekend is
Friday night - Mussels and bacon in a cider sauce followed by sea bream
Saturday night - Chicken casserole
Sunday night - a Raclette - basically hot fab cheese bit like a fondue with cold meats and some spuds - have a look here for photo http://www.raclette.de/shopdata/shop.php4?aktion=specials&page=raclette
Going to take lots of fruit veg and water to keep me flowing well ; - )
Shower songs - Box of Rain by the Grateful Dead - just the job!
Now, I'm not a nutritionist but I take a real interest in healthy eating (just take a look in my cupboards) My theory to lose weight is to cut out (or down on) cheese, beer, unrefined bread, meat and increase lentils, basmati rice (not short grain as it contains too many carbs) nuts, seeds (all the exciting stuff!) soya milk and bread made with spelt flour. Don't forget, weight and size is largly (excuse the pun) a genetic thing so you may just be unlucky.
Apart from that... enjoy yourself!
We can talk rice though - short grain is though to be better for water retention and much of our health challenges comes from de-hydration although you're righ tabout the carbs though....
We need NtN to come in on this!
