Tom and I have been doing the Hairy Bikers’ diet for just over two months now and it’s been so effective and easy for us to stick to. Between us we’ve lost 2 and a half stone and I feel so much better: more healthy and happy with my body. Tom was really pleased when he had to go out and buy new trousers as all his old pairs are far too big now!
We haven’t been perfect on the diet, but I think there’s always going to be a day when you can’t help eating something a bit unhealthy, especially for Tom – he has a lot of corporate lunches and evening drinks to go to with work – but generally the diet has been really good and the food is delicious!
Last week Tom made us a really tasty bacon salad and used some of the delicious Comté cheese we bought at Borough Market. I love salad, you can just throw in whatever you have in the fridge, building up all the lettuce, cucumber, spinach leaves etc and then top it with whatever boost of flavour you fancy – chicken, bacon, ham, toasted pine nuts, torn up chunks of bread, olives, cheeses etc – easy, delicious and healthy!
