As I watched the pounds slowly come off, I began to understand what the Mayr had done. Essentially, it had reset my gut. Like a computer clogged up with junk, my system had begun to run hopelessly slow.
After half a century indulging my epicurean excesses, it needed resetting. Unplugging, if you like. For someone to clean out the bugs and hit reboot. Sure, I still fancied the odd treat; but I was no longer on a blood sugar rollercoaster of highs and crashing lows. In fact, I felt so un-hungry that I was able to cut out an entire meal from my day.
I found that by having a late breakfast and an early supper, I could have one meal at around 11am and another at around 7pm or 8pm — and that would do me.
By the beginning of December, I was down one-and-a-half stone. That was a real breakthrough. For the first time in ages I took pleasure in getting dressed for Christmas parties. And yes, I enjoyed a few mince pies and toasted the season.
But I always climbed back on the wagon the next day. This was actually easier than I had anticipated. Because I felt so much happier and healthier, as all that dreadful lethargy, low energy and bloating had dissipated, the difference if I ate the wrong things for a day was palpable.
Far from resenting my new diet, I resented any interruption to it. In fact, I was starting to enjoy this new-found sense of control I had. For once I controlled the food, rather than the other way around. I also began to understand more about the biochemistry of the body.

She sits with you as you eat, explaining the purpose and relevance of every mouthful, educating with every bite.

When the body is working correctly, i. Nor does it crave more than it needs. It becomes self-regulating. This is a truth very much borne out by my own experience over the past few months. The other day, for example, I wolfed down a scone. A Lawyer hours later, I received a very clear message back in the shape of a tummy ache.
Because I have learned to see this process not as a negative one — I cannot have this, I cannot have that — but as a positive one. Not just in the sense that I feel and look much better; but also that I can now take pleasure in deciding what to wear in the mornings, rather than just flinging on the same old black tent. I went back to see him last week and he only seemed mildly impressed. Still, already my blood pressure is down to a much safer level.
My puffiness has all but disappeared. And when I look down I can see straight from my chin to my toes for the first time in years, without having Lawyer desperately suck my stomach in. And you know the best bit? But I no longer look in the mirror and feel that familiar wave of self-loathing.

Eat like this 80 per cent of the time and calories will give you energy and fat-burning power. Slow exercise has benefits, but fat burning is not one of them. High-intensity interval training HIIT — short bursts of strenuous exercise — triggers the after-burn effect, where you burn fat as muscles strengthen.
