FairyGirl, Lemon drizzle yum though more lemon than sugar in the drizzle, G/G coffee and walnut a favourite and any straightforward cake that does not have garden vegetables added to it for some unknown reason, I think it too much of a reminder of Mr Wooltons Pie.
As to diet fads and that is what they are my advice is look at them closely, hidden sugar salt and chemicals abound. Being active all my life weight was never a problem then I seemed to pile it on. On my yearly MOT I got 11 out of ten having got rid of a full stone and not by diet simply eating less at each meal.
I have seen everything you could put in your mouth demonised at one time or another then held up on high as the wonder food of the century, baloney the lot of it.
FairyG, In Cavalry Barrakcs York when they found out I was from farming stock they gave me the 18 hand mad horse who had been very badly handled by people who should not have been anywhere near a horse. Within a week he was following me round like a dog though he would show his teeth to anyone coming near me, When the Blacksmith arrived I had to hoof him and he would stand still while the shoes were changed and luckily when I knew I was leaving he went to a good home retired, animals like humans respond to kindness and a firm hand, take note G/G.
