I actually think any sort of ‘diet’ would work for five days. They make us very, very mindful of what we are putting into our bodies and how we eat. I’s almost always about portion control, eating slowly and drinking enough water. I do it with soup as I can control what consistency it is (it’s almost stew by day five) and know 100% what’s in it (I make my own or my sister does it for me – lovely little sister) so that I can even control fat, sugar and salt.

Therein lies the word I think – control. We have to learn to take it back again. Life is so hectic that when we have reached our personal goal, it can be really easy to forget to be vigilant. We aren’t morbidly obese any more so it can sometimes feel that watching what we eat isn’t so important. I personally think it is MORE important.

I don’t count calories, I just watch portion size, eat slowly and regularly throughout the day and drink more water. It works for me. But, that is me. I’m not for one minute saying that it should/would work for you but it sort of makes sense.

Anyway, if any of you are struggling it might be worth trying the five day pouch test or the milk diet or even what I do and just go back to basics. Whatevver you decide, be assured that we are all here to help you 😉
