Before I start, this is a gushing post. You’ve been warned! I’m documenting the ultimate cornerstone to my entire liquid diet journey. This post in fact deserves the biggest chapter heading in the tale of Bryony Hopkins. Last week, I had my first doctors appointment with my specialist consultant since I finished my liquid diet. … More A vegetable a day keeps the doctor away
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…
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
As I woke up this morning and walked to the fridge for breakfast, I had three tantalising options. Summer Fruits elemental, Grapefruit elemental or Orange & Pineapple elemental. On face value, that doesn’t sound too bad does it? A delicious fruity drink to start the day… Unfortunately, I have remembered these shakes with complete rose … More Day 1: Rose tinted glasses
I would just like to say on record, I love food. I don’t like food, or eat to solely survive… I really really love food. Breakfast is the first thing I think of in the morning, no sooner have I consumed that I am thinking about my 11 o’clock snack before considering lunch… you get … More I LOVE FOOD
