It's brilliant that you're doing your Hobbit trail again. Weathertop is a big milestone.

And dairy-free sounds so hard for me but it sounds like it's worth it.

Yes, I got a small £8 spiralizer and it does the trick perfectly. It looks like an hourglass. I had a fail yesterday but I'm glad I had. I had the worst indigestion problems with cramps and all the last few days. (is that too much info?? sorry) Yesterday after dinner, I had this massive craving att...

I think it could be related. Vitamin D is important for your immunity and my guess is that if your immune system is in overdrive trying to heal you it will use a lot of it. Also, when you are outside, make sure you get some unprotected time outside (at least 10-20minutes depending on your skin type....

I totally agree with Over43. I read that in England 55% of people have vitamin D deficiency. I try to beat it by taking a 10-15min stroll/seat in the sun during my lunch time as often as the English weather will allow.

Hi oolala, I am in support of allowing S Days as they are meant to be: freewheeling. No matter what happens. It's such a relief so that N days can be N days.

Hi Linda, That book is amazing. It's so much better than the other one. I don't agree with all her dietary advice as it's a bit too much on the "no-added sugar" fad but it's still very good and the recipes are amazing. I've made her vanilla "ice cream" and it was delicious. It's 1 frozen banana 1/3 ...

Hi Jennifer, NoS isn't for losing weight fast. I'm sorry to say. This is a sustainable long-term solution. I started NoS when quite a few of my friends said they need a fast solution. 3 years later - I'm at my ideal weight and they are still where they were as they couldn't sustain their fast weight...

Thank you so much Linda and Sonya! I will give those a try :) I'm delighted you told me of the other examples as I might have dismissed those kinds of muffins completely and am thrilled to be proven wrong! I also got a new cookbook that looks much more promising: Get the Glow by Madeleine Shaw. It's...

I think IE really works for people who have not been on a diet and have grown up eating 3 meals or 4 meals at structured times a day. In that case IE is just a way to get back to that for them.

The intuition part I use is about WHAT is on my plate not WHEN I eat.

I did feel a bit ungrateful posting about people's generosity. Ha! As someone who has just unloaded most of our wedding decoration I can tell you that the generosity lies in accepting the gifts and not in giving them away. I was so glad to have them out of the house and to know someone is using the...
