I'm currently reading this book.
I've had it on the kitchen shelf for a while but decided to save reading it until after our usual, although slighter than previous years, Christmas excess and my wander back into eating foods I should know by now are not good for me. I have noticed that once you fall back into old eating habits it is a hard slippery climb back to get yourself eating properly and healthily again, and of course we have had to eat up all the bad things that were lurking in the cupboards ... haven't we!! ;-)
I was just wondering if anyone out there has read this book and done the 30 day programme and if it worked for them?
I am thinking of doing it myself as a kick start to getting me back to good habits, healthier eating, and even more importantly to me feeling good. It seems very Harcombe like and that suits me. So I have put a big ring around the 1st March on the calendar as it seemed a really good time to start. The first of March is on a Tuesday so the Monday would be my day zero, a chance to menu plan, examine all the foods we have in store that would be suitable, and thank goodness, there is a lot in the freezer and cupboards that will be, but possibly more importantly this week I am going to see what we have in that might tempt me back to the 'dark side' ... I don't think there's too much. We don't buy processed junk foods, sugary drinks or cakes, but I do know there are a few things that I like that are really classed as processed food so it would make sense to add them to this weeks menu plan and thereby remove them from temptation for the coming month.
I have just printed out and gone through the pescetarian/vegetarian/vegan shopping list and there is such an abundance of food that I can eat and that we do already have in store that it should be no problem to do this even with our current 'Year of Without'. The things I have crossed out with my marker pen were just things that I don't like or can't eat due to allergies.
