2 small toasts and butter

1 heart-shaped crumpet with butter and Manuka Honey. (My last one! Next, onto squares.)

Satiety Level: Between neutral and pleasingly satisfied

Total eggotism.

Stone Cold Soba... (actually, it was pretty warm!)

Summary:

I naturally ate less today. I’m beginning to estimate really well how much food I can stomach. Some of the ancient Ayurvedic texts suggest that a fistful of food is as much as the body needs. (Your own fistful, not that of King Kong.)

Another great day of sensible eating without guilt and overindulgence. I’ve now dug out an old and rarely seen copy of Paul McKenna’s I Can Make You Thin. I’ll allow it to digest for a day or two and then report my findings!
