I’ve just begun the 800 diet and intent to run for the full 12 weeks. I’m 59, over 19 stones (120.6kg?), take meds for arrhythmia… a blood thinner and a beta blocker. I live alone, separated but on very happy terms with my wife and my teenage children that I see daily.
My only other attempt at a diet was 6 or 7 years ago when I calorie restricted to about 500 less a day for a year, my main source of inspiration the Hackers Diet. I lost about 5 stones (32kg) from 19 to 14 stones (that target recommended by my doctor).
I have vegan sympathies. My 16yo daughter is vegan. I don’t particularly enjoy meat, especially not as filler with salads, for example, but don’t worry about the odd exception.
What I find problematic is that I’m not interested in cooking or preparing food. I love all of the wonderful recipes around but am just not interested in making them for myself. I don’t like unprepared vegetables and salads that much.
How long do you give me? 😁
Nice to meet you.
