Time for a strategic rethink…

In reviewing my progress or lack thereof I feel that my evening meal is consistently were it all goes to pot. In the first year when I was regularly losing weight I had programmed myself to run a tight ship all day but at my evening meal to eat as much as I wanted as long as it was healthy. To be fair this worked for a time but seems to have stopped and perhaps for longer than I care to admit. I have always loved potatoes. It doesn’t really matter what shape or format they come in I’m your man for demolishing a pile or two of them. On reflection I need to get my evening meal under control and one of the ways I can see to do that is to ban the potato. So this week I’m going to give it a go. Even as I write this I can feel fear and insecurity coming on. Do I have the will power to say no? How will I cope without my comfort blanket? I guess you will have to continue to tune in to find out…*

Thanks again for your support and for reading this again!

    It's hard to give up things you like but a change might be what you need.

    If banning it's too hard, why not limit the portion? On the British Heart Foundation weight loss plan, a man can have 8 portions of carbs/starchy stuff a day. So you could have 3 of those at your evening meal. (One portion of potatoes = two egg-sized potatoes). Otherwise, good luck with the ban!
