  Not sure if I'm being called  a butterfly or a frog ...  Whatever you're on Edd, I'd take more cocoa with it ...

 One kiss from a prince changes everything Dove, no matter what species you are Have you seen the MSM!

PS. Avoid the Belgian cocoa (or only buy the Belgian cocoa) It's one of the two??? I forget now. I'm sure you will look it up. Please.

Hey Edd

good as always to see you 

never been on a diet never felt I needed to but I have health and food conscious 

tried fasting once....one day a week but it nearly killed me....headaches, etc.  but I should have persevered to get over the " withdrawal" period 

you have got me interested though in looking af how often I eat, etc.  Perhaps we have got in the habit we must have .3 meals a day???

well, you sound more positive Edd...excellent 

my plants?  things tend to be a little earlier down here and spring is certainly here.  Love this time of year.

See original post

 Nothing against the AMERICANS Verdun  but they started that we need 4 square meals a day and invented Breakfast as the most important meal of the day! never mind the 8 bottles of water a day!!! 

No insult but have you seen the average AMERICAN!!!!

They say if you feel hungry then you are, just probably thirsty! As it all works in your second brain. (your gut) Then that means when you are thirsty all is wrong and you need food and not water! What utter rubbish. When was the last time you were thirsty and thought, I'll have a bag of crisps instead!!!

Please look into the intermittent (diet ((It's not a diet!)) 18/6 hour or what ever  times you like. I'm on 22/4 hour. It takes 1 hour to eat a meal and a cup of coffee after.

Kind regards.


ps. Sea sickness 4 times a day may be a big help. You would have thought I would have found my sea legs by now. but no

pps. Do you want to buy a house with big leeks and onions????

That looks like a big bucket for a 2" pipe trench Pat.

Anything more than 22c over here and we melt, Pat. We leave the warm weather to Verdun. I think it was 23c down there last year!!!  I think it was still raining and blowing a whooley, though.

Weather looks fantastic Pat. 

So does that tree with the white bark. What a beauty.

Just a small question pat. Has your other half increased your life insurance lately as that looks like it is going to be one hell of a hole. We normally use a spade? 

PS. Pat. The pots stack up on top of each other for easy storage

You always need pot Pat E.

zucchinis can become a pain to grow as they grow fast and take up water and nutrients and at the end of the day there is only so much you can do with them (I wish they were great juicers but they are not) Tomatoes on the other hand! I wish I was over run with them. You know our climate over here.

I can't believe your summer is nearly over.

Regards Edd

PS. You're lucky you don't have to pay the BBC for a licence to watch such trash as Swedish Ninja Warrior. We do. (or similar)

PPS. Have you ever been unfortunate to live over here Pat E?

Have you tried the intermittent diet? 

Too be honest it's not a diet and I'm not sure why they call it that it's just a way of managing and thinking about your life. 

Lost 2 stone in 2 month. One stone went in one week!!! (that is the norm but it changes~) Look this is not a diet and do not think of it that way. I just happened to jump on someone else's scales and thought wow I'm 2 stone overweight for my height.

I have Never been on a diet and never will be I will eat what i want and enjoy it. 

I must admit I am trying 500ml of Metformin a day and have been for a while now but that has nothing to do with weight. I take one tsp of bicarbonate of soda with half a lemon and 2 tbls cider vinegar (homemade)  Each day in the morning and eat whatever I want. but only have 1 meal a day.  I fast for the rest of the day and have a nice meal at about 6pm. So that is.  Wake up have my drink and nothing else until teatime!!!!

I was bugged out or 2 days and got angry over everything but never felt hungry in that period.

Lost 2 stone in 2 month and still it is going down every day. 

Not sure what to say. I have a 2 hour feed period and a 22 hour fast period unless you class the drink in the morning as food but I have always done that?

Never felt more alive and energetic Verdun. Try it. You can vary the feed and fast period. I think they call it the 16/8 diet or the warrior diet. No matter what you try and if you try it,

Just get it out of head that this is a diet. IT'S NOT. Its just a different way of think and a different way of life. The time saved not having to stop for food is remarkable and you do not lose energy. 

Brush teeth once a day after meal. Prepare food once a day only. Not having to stop work when others have because you have so much energy. Shopping for food Once every 2 weeks instead of each week. (we still need to go back for a Marathon Bar now and again) You can have coffee and anything you like, within reason. The calories in and calories out still stands but you get a day off each week where you can break your fast.

Best thing I ever came across Verdun.

PS HOW'S YOUR PLANTS?????????????????

Come on Pat E. Your can't have gotten over your tan yet never mind cutting back the roses!

Hope you are keeping well down there. I might be joining you soon but only for a short month or 5-6 weeks.

First butterfly of the year!

Dove is in Trouble after that, Verdun!!!!

I had history in genetically engineer a butterfly with a spot on the back of its abdomen that looks like a tiny person. Then on that tiny person's back is a tattoo of a goddam butterfly. (how times change)

Dove was having a screaming match with her Daughter. "Maybe I don't want to be like you, alright? Maybe I don't want to be a butterfly!" So she dropped out and became an individual artist.

No offence intended Dove. Things change and the frog metamorphosis and leave home.

You never here about them coming back (Is that a good thing?) 

You could have said frog!!!. They always come back to your pond each year!!!!

I have grown and laid this out twice over the  years. 

It is fantastic to cut (not so often) and worth every effort (dreamtime)
