Now The ‘Christmas Blip’ is coming to an end which means the choccie boxes are nearly empty and all the ‘delicious-naughty-foods-that-lure-one-to-them-with-their-mystical-subliminal-chanting’, have nearly all disappeared, it’s time to get back to rationing and knuckle down and get the job done….
In 7.5 months time my year long culinary experiment on eating a diet based on authentic WWII 1940’s rationing will come to and end. My hopes by the end of the year were to
- Recreate 100 authentic recipes, eat and photograph them
- Record the effect living on a 1940’s ration diet would have on my health and hopefully achieve a weight-loss of 100 lbs
I have for several years been convinced that to LOSE WEIGHT we do not need to starve ourselves but feed ourselves properly and generously! By making fundamental changes in our eating habits (all the time) I believe our bodies will become the efficient fuel burning machines they used to be…
Cut out the plethora of modern foods we crave that have artificial sweeteners, preservatives, hidden added fats & colouring, from our lives and go back to eating basic, little processed, fresh, local foods. SIMPLE (but actually I’ve found out it isn’t always so simple as processed foods are a HUGE business in our modern world)
We don’t need to count calories, we don’t need to be obsessed with counting grams of fat- life is tooooo damn short!
Just get rid of all the modern crap, limit your meat, eat basic foods, eat tons of fresh veg, eat some healthy carbs and drink water (and tea!!)
Saying all that- this means in 7.5 months to complete my experiment successfully I have to still
- Re-create and photograph a new recipe every three days for the next 7.5 months
- Lose 1 lb of body fat every 3 days for 7.5 months
