So I'm well within the healthy weight for a woman of my age and height. My BMI's 21 and visceral fat (around organs) 5%, so all well and good. So good I've just eaten 2 date flapjacks to celebrate.
That's the trouble: when we celebrate we usually go out to eat, have a special meal or munch chocolate. And we bring our children up saying, 'if you're good I'll buy you sweets,' thus indoctrinating them in the same way. If you're good you can have an apple doesn't have quite the same effect.
I'm sure there are lots of other enticements that trendy mums use - like a handful of sultanas or sunflower seeds - bleurgh. But the good thing about this diet I've been on is that it's encouraged me to use a smaller dinner plate and eat less, and it works: I'm generally eating less.
If I can just maintain it for life ...
