I've been spending a lot of time reading up about different eating plans online and going through my eating plan books, to see what the common denominator is amongst them....
So far MOST say SUGAR IS THE NO 1 ENEMY
I found a book called THE X DIET which I bough about 10 years ago, this book was written by a registered dietitian in South Africa, so to me this had to be a good eating plan.
When you look at this book you can see I've read if from cover to cover as it has lots of stains on the pages as well...
What this plan was all about was....FAT...keeping that as low as possible in your plan
I read this from the book
AS A GENERAL RULE, SEE-THROUGH SWEETS (AND MARSHMALLOWS ) DO NOT CONTAIN FAT, AND YOU MAY EAT THEM FREELY ON THE X DIET!
KEEP A SUPPLY OF JELLY BABIES, WINE GUMS, MARSHMALLOWS AND BOILED SWEETS ON HAD FOR QUICK ENERGY BOOSTS.
BEWARE OF CARAMELS AND TOFFEES AS THESE OFTEN CONTAIN HIDDEN FATS.
Now trust me while I did this plan, this gave me a free passage to eat sweets and I did.
I filled a Tupperware container with sweets and my hands would often be dipping into the bowl as this was fat free!!
Lets remember that fat free is ASPARTAME FILLED...
I was very excited when I went to teach the group of ladies I teach on a Tuesday evening that they have decided to have another 10 sessions with me once this 10 are finished, and then again another 10 from September before I leave to Cape Town on my Christmas holiday with my family.
Last night I taught 4 ladies from my street, we meet every Wednesday evening, gave them a hard workout, but did feel very alone before and afterwards as they were speaking German to each other at a very fast pace and I had no idea what they were saying. As I'm not hearing the German language being spoken from one Wednesday to the next I'm finding it really hard to feel part of this group.
The last photo is of me and my five grandchildren....taken in November while on holiday to Cape Town...I went home to be at the birth of my 5th grandchild, who I'm holding...she's my little Nunu that one!!!
My son has three children...My Princess, Super Dude, and Beautiful boy ( blogger names for them)
My daughter has two.....Clever boy and Nunu....
I'm really blessed but wish I was able to spend more time with them as they in Cape Town and me in Germany!!!
I'm all dressed and ready to do a run today...but so chilly outside...
