How this Fast Diet Lifestyle works: Eat these meals tomorrow. On Thursday, eat the meals that will be posted on Wednesday. Eat sensibly the other days of the week. That’s it. Simple way to lose weight and be healthier.
Can’t tell you how often people say, “Well I’m off on holiday and of course that means I won’t be Fasting, since that would be impossible.” And I think, “Why would you say that?” Having been at this for 5 years, perhaps it is easier for me to see the possibilities on a menu and do a mental calculation of calories. But even without that, if one sticks to lean proteins, fruits, and vegetables at meals on Fast Days, then one might even allow the odd glass of wine! Other days, enjoy whatever local fare is offered. The bottom line is this: Fasting on vacation does not mean ruining your trip or spoiling the fun. Rather, it gives you a framework which enables you to partake of local foods sensibly without the groans of disappointment when you read the scales upon your return.
Breakfast the Hotel: Most hotels serve a Breakfast Buffet, often of grandiose proportions. If you view it with a Faster’s eye, you will spot some offerings which exactly fill the bill. On Slow Days, one can sample more freely from the other tempting treats. Breakfasting from the buffet in Rome looked like this: It was the perfect prelude to a day at the Colosseum and the Church of San Clemente, with its 5 levels of historic interest.
Dinner at the Restaurant: If your accommodations are not of the self- catering type, you will find yourself dining in a restaurant on a Fast Day. Seafood to the rescue! At Botequim Açoriano in Rabo de Peixe, Sao Miguel, Azores, grilled fish with a side salad was a great meal. Enough for two, it just what we needed.
