I've just spent about two months at my parent's house. That also meant going back to the diet I had for the first 18 years of my life, as my mum prepared all the meals.
I was pretty shocked about what happened to my body!
I actually LOST weight. (And people noticed!)
Now, let me describe what and when I ate daily:
Breakfast 8 am - Two eggs scrambled, a little tomato, cucumber, and capsicum cut up, a few walnuts and half an apple
Lunch noon - typical German meals, usually with potatoes, meat and some veggies, once a week a fish dish and soup, on Saturdays we do a sweet dish for lunch
Dinner 6 pm - Homebaked wholewheat bread, butter, salami, ham, different types of cheese, tomatoes, pickled gherkins
Snack 8 pm - Fresh cut fruit like apples, oranges, and kiwi AND chocolates. My family is crazy about chocolate. We indulged daily and were not holding back.
I should add that I didn't drink any calories though, only water.
I didn't follow any crazy exercise regime, instead, I went for a walk outside every day with my mum and did a quick 10-minute workout.
Basically, I ate a lot of the stuff that is supposedly bad: Carbs like potatoes, bread, chocolates, as well as, fats like butter and animal fat in sausages.
So, how exactly did I lose weight?
That's not the only amazing thing that happened though: I finally got rid of the bloated feeling in my stomach which I had for years. I finally had a flat stomach.
Tomorrow, I'll discuss what I think happened.
