I have just woken up to day two of the Heart diet and loving it! LOL! This diet does work, if you want to start your diet well by loosing half a stone, especially after christmas. I have done it before and it definately helps. However, the food that you have to eat does not suit all tastes and you probably wont want to eat tuna ever again....not good also if, like me, you hate peanut butter. Two tablespoons can be hard to eat! Be sure to drink lots of water too, can leave you with a headache on the first day.
After trying numerous fad diets I came upon a book by Kathryn Marsden on food combining. Finally! I thought to myself I have found a sensible diet. No more cabbage soup for me! It seemed to make sense not just for those who diet but the population as a whole. The principal of this diet is 'don't eat foods that fight'. This means that at each mealtime you choose a category, protein, starch or alkaline-based foods (e.g. salad and fruit) rather than mixing categories together. In principal this diet makes sense as through not mixing foods which don’t react well together, you can loose weight as your digestive system is improved, which in turn helps get rid of the unnecessary waste which vastly adds to your weight. As I said earlier this diet is therefore good for healthy eaters as a whole not just dieters. Although this diet does sound fantastic in principal in theory it is quite different! If you are quite a disciplined person you will manage to easily follow it and watch the pounds shed off as my friend found. However if you are like me and eat out quite regularly, it is extremely easy to give into temptation, as it is so hard to find a meal that actually follows the food combining rules! In conclusion this diet is a fantastic idea that if followed correctly is highly effective. However if you are not very good at following strict diets, maybe this is not the one for you!

This diet is from the British heart Foundation, it was given to my mum by a friend who works at our local Hospital, it is given to patients who need to lose weight either before operations, or just because they are over weight putting extra pressure on the heart. This diet is very safe, and is proven to work. It is a chemical breakdown diet, not meaning that you can’t eat, but the foods you eat, reacts together hence the weight loss. You must only follow this diet for THREE DAYS, you must not vary or substitute any of the foods, salt and pepper can be used, but no other seasoning, Where quantity is not given, there are no restrictions other than common sense. Toast to be dry – no butter or margarine, tuna, string beans and beetroot can be frozen, Saltine crackers are Tuc biscuits or Ritz biscuits. You must drink 5 x 8oz – glasses of water each day. FIRST DAY BREAKFAST Black coffee/tea Half a grapefruit 1 lice of toast 2tsp peanut butter LUNCH Black tea/coffee 4oz tuna 1 slice of toast DINNER 2 slices of any cold meat 1-cup string beans 4oz beetroot 4oz vanilla ice cream (it doesn’t state it has to be low fat ice-cream, but that’s what my mum used) SECOND DAY BREAKFAST Black coffee/tea 1 egg Half a banana LUNCH 4oz cottage cheese 5 saltine crackers DINNER 2 hot dog sausages (the ones in the tin) 4oz broccoli 2oz carrots 4oz vanilla ice cream THIRD DAY BREAKFAST Black coffee/tea 5 saltine crackers 1 slice of cheddar cheese 1 small apple LUNCH 1 egg 1 slice of toast DINNER 4oz tuna 4oz beetroot 4oz cauliflower 4oz vanilla ice cream My mum and dad tried this diet last week, my mum being five foot two and weighing eleven stone lost ei
ght pounds, my dad being six foot two and weighing fourteen stone ten pounds lost eleven pounds, so it does work. Just remember only do it for THREE DAYS at a time, after which you can eat normally but remember to be sensible and not over do it. You can lose up to forty pounds in a month. So why not give it a go, it is only three days at a time. I have started this diet today so I will up date it, in three days time to let you know how I got on. Good luck. (UPDATE) I lost six pounds in the three days. Although I checked and double checked, this diet is safe, it is NOT a permanent diet, and from personal experience the quicker you lose weight the quicker you will put it back on, unless you continue to eat sensibly. This diet is fine to give your weight loss a boost, but please continue to eat a more structured diet, if you are going to try this. I found this diet fine, but make sure you drink plenty of water, as I found, on the first day I did get a headache from not drinking enough fluid.
Cheese is possibly the best food to ever grace this planet we call……Errr.. Earth- Alan Partridge reference- For more comic references from Alan Partridge, visit my Alan Partridge opinions. Anyway cheese it is so versatile you can grate it and eat it with almost anything. Cheese on toast is the best snack I have ever seen especially when it is garnished with a little Lea and Perrins Worcestershire sauce and some HP sauce. Absolutely fabulous. Happy snacking.
