23… AND COUNTING!

I’m amazed at how easy it has been. I’ve spent the last 72 days keeping a close watch on what and how I eat, instead of simply eating less, and I’ve lost 23.3 pounds in the meantime!

To be honest, if I didn’t notice the difference – and I really do – I’d hardly believe it.

It all began because Ana, my wife,  wanted to lose a little weight and I decided to try to accompany her. Although I don’t get to spend as much time with her and the children as I would like, due to work demands, I thought it would be a great way for both Ana and I to do something that would bring us a little closer together, so to speak, even where we’re apart.

So the next question was how to do so? What was the best way? Following the advice of some of her friends, Ana decided on Doctor Dukan. So, that’s right, I’m yet another of those people who have tried the “Dukan Diet”. But the truth is I do make the odd change every now and then, because, if I didn’t, it would be really difficult and really, really boring to follow his diet to the letter (or lettuce.) And we all know what we tend to do when we find things really, really boring…

My plan now is to stick to it, at least until the end of the year. Let’s see how far, and how low, I go!

I try to only eat food which is rich in protein, with, of course, some greens on a regular basis. And, to date, I’ve only broken that rule a couple of times: once sampling some wonderful wines in Los Angeles, and the other time with a slice or two of pizza in London. The second excuse isn’t quite as glamorous as the first, but we spent a whole day in meetings, working on a project we’re involved in, and our hosts ordered a few pizzas to snack on at the meeting table. Who said the British don’t know how to cook!
