If you’ve been following my journey through the liquid jungle since day one – you’ll know that I’ve started to completely change my attitude towards diet and the role it plays in my life. It’s incredible to see the difference the liquid diet has made and I am determined to maintain this state of health … More Day 23: The juicy epiphany
Just one week until I can start eating again and I feel great. It’s funny, people keep saying ‘yes definitely let’s go out for dinner when you’re feeling better’. Although I’m not eating and drinking, I am not ill. I feel the best I have felt in months and it’s really an incredible feeling. Granted, … More Day 20: THE HOME STRETCH
Since starting this liquid diet and this blog, I have had so many conversations with friends, family and colleagues – many of whom have said the same thing to me time and time again. ‘Wow. Four weeks not eating? I could never do that!’ I completely understand this rationale – it’s unimaginable to think about … More Day 16: Anyone could do this
It’s day 14 and I’M HALFWAY BABY! The worst part is over (apparently) and the only way is up! The only way is to the food that will be filling my belly in TWO WEEKS! To celebrate, I went for a run. I know, I really know how to party. I’m not going to lie, … More Day 14: Halfway baby!
I’m nearly at the half way point… and I wish I could give some really poignant words at this point about how normal not eating has become. Unfortunately, I am still hungry. And food is still leaving a gaping hole in my life. The biggest pizza shaped hole. Despite this, physically I am feeling so … More Day 13: Let’s get medical
Two weeks is turning to four… and that’s okay. Whilst I’m already feeling so much better in myself, I’m not completely out of the woods yet. Here’s hoping one whole golden month will do the trick! In light of this news, I’ve made a very comprehensive list of the pros of not eating (surprisingly, there … More Day 9: Two weeks turns to four
No, that’s not a typo. I’m talking about the hunger induced anger – the hanger. It’s probably the most volatile anger out there, when you’re grumpy because you need to eat. And I am experiencing this on another level: specifically around mealtimes. Lunch time or dinner time, I’m one grumpy girl. Hanger is also prompted … More Day 7: Oh the hanger!
Me on Friday! Oh wait….. I’m now on fantastical day 6 of the liquid diet, and I’m surprised one week has nearly passed. (Despite the hunger!) I’ve got through half a working week and one whole weekend not eating or drinking – and I’m feeling pretty great. Today we’re discussing socialising without food and drink. … More Day 6: When you get hungry in the club…
I’m not sure what planet I was living on when I thought I could mostly avoid food during this time. Because it’s simply impossible. FOOD IS EVERYWHERE. At least when I was 11, I was only taunted by meal times. Now I just have to be flicking through my Facebook timeline to see a video … More Day 3: FOOD. IS. EVERYWHERE.
Who knew it was possible to lie awake thinking about how hungry you are. I’ve always been lucky enough to go to bed with a full stomach (a luxury I’m aware many do not have). Last night I lay awake until 12.30, until I decided enough was enough and I had another shake. It was … More Day 2: No midnight snacks here
