Here we are at the end of 2015 and yes, I’m still keeping up the diet – in fact on a fast day today. It’s just as well as the Christmas festivities have lead to a 3lb increase in weight (approx). I’ve at or below 11st for most of the year although I did spend a few weeks a couple of pounds or more below 11st earlier in the year.
My health is fine, I’ve run around 8 half-marathons and a full marathon this year as well as sailing a dinghy. Mind you I am taking statins now as the changes to the level at which the doctors here recommend it here in relation to age meant that it was what the doctor wanted me to do – despite having relatively low cholesterol. The doctor admitted I was doing everything right with my exercise and diet, but the fact that my cholesterol levels would grow in spite of this meant that taking a statin was inevitable. So I gave it a months trial to see if there were any side-effects, none showed up, so I am now taking a statin daily. Won’t find out the effect until May when I have my annual check up.
I’ll try and add my weight chart to this also, but I haven’t had time to sort it out yet.
So I’m happy to stay on the diet and in spite of the statins – it works.
Here is the weight chart for 2015 (note the Christmas rise at the end!):
