Jane and I for the last number of weeks have been slowly ruling out a gang of four from our diet. We have affectionately started to call them the big bad four and they include chips, crisps, chocolate and ice-cream. Each a demon in their own right they have featured far too often in my diet and have tortured me with their comforting lure. I must say I have found this a really helpful thing especially the process of banning one a week. I miss them and when I feel the all too common urge to comfort eat I’m not sure what to do. However, I know these demons must be bound, their power taken off them and put under lock and key. I know some day I when I’m strong enough I will need to live with them and appropriately interact with them but for now abstinence is my best option.
