i don't eat breakfast anymore. well, hardly ever. years ago when i was pregnant with my daughter the specialist said i have to have breakfast every morning and so i did from then on. now i'm doing the 5:2 diet and i don't feel like breakfast so i don't have it. i've lost 10kg and it's the best 'diet' i've ever tried. basically you eat normally for 5 days and 'fast' for 2. when i say fast it's not really a fast as you are allowed 500 calories a day when fasting. men are allowed 600. when i fast i only eat an evening meal usually but if necessary i'll have a cup of soup mid afternoon. i drink coffee, tea and lots of water. i'm fasting today actually. at first i thought that there is no way i'll be able to do it and what do you know? i can. :) i won't say it's easy as some days are easier than others. i've only failed once on a fast day. i usually do very well. sometimes i'll have a few more calories than i'm supposed to but if this way of eating is anything it's flexible. it fits in around your lifestyle not the other way around. when i tell people i'm doing the 5:2 i get so much negativity. most people say they couldn't possibly go without food for that long. anyway, enough of 5:2. yesterday i had some beautiful little tomatoes in the fridge and just felt like some fried tomatoes on toast. nice light rye bread toast. i prepared everything and it looked gorgeous. i made a coffee and was all set to go when i thought i'd better put some water in the frypan to soak it a while. that's when it happened. i turned on the tap and had forgotten to switch it over to unfiltered. it's one of those old fashioned bench type jobs that needs to be switched to either the sink or the unit which supplies filtered water. and yes, my delicious breakfast was under the filter and got soaked. luckily my toast was safe but the tomatoes were nice and watery. i made a decision then and there and tipped the water off of them and proceeded to eat them. they were delicious and i enjoyed them. you couldn't tell they been drenched. trouble was after eating breakfast i was hungry all day.
