Well I’m still on the diet, though did let it go over the Christmas period – 2 days completely off and another two with only partly dieting (e.g. New Year’s Eve where I broke the fast at midnight of course!).
Still feel ok, though coldish on diet days (as I am now, just put an extra layer on). My fitness has kept up through the year and with more opportunity to enter races now, I had a good Autumn campaign with 4 half-marathon runs under 1:50 and a marathon at 4h 1m 16s (and if you are a runner you will understand how annoying that time is!)
So here is my weight chart for the year:
I can’t explain the drop in weight during July – August – there was no change in diet, possibly more activity like running etc. is the most likely. Anyway as you can see my weight stayed down until Christmas (that the last point) and now I’m back to the routine it should come back down again. The couple of very low points are a malfunction in the sales I think as all the other readings (fat, water & bone ratios) were all out of line as well.
I see no reason not to keep on in the same way. The benefits are clear, and I get the chance to eat meals I wouldn’t otherwise have and for the most part they are enjoyable.
So dear reader – if you are on the diet keep on, if you are just starting – keep with it – and to all –
Have a Good New Year
