    Counting calories is becoming part of history. There is absolutely no need to count calories. Unless of course it keeps people entertained.

    Meantime. No calorie counting in this house. Mrs Ash is slowly but surely losing weight / burning fat.

    I stopped counting calories, Bigmac will only say I can put them back on by looking at a plate of chips (I don't eat chips nowadays) :) but the daily walk is still enjoyable :) Screenshot_20210118_221248.jpg

    You seem to be doing well. You seem to have got your head around it all. :like:

    Fatty liver disease. It’s not seen on the surface. Your dietary intervention will help a lot.

    Food as Medicine. Seems a bit odd doesn’t it. We are so used to going to the doctor and expecting a prescription for a tablet or other drug. What we do often really need is good food.

    No. I stopped 3 weeks ago, owing to home schooling. I have been glad to give my feet a rest. But could still do with the exercise.
