Bernie’s diet

Bernie has five or six small and medium meals every day.

Breakfast is a green smoothie, containing kale, protein powder, two raw eggs and a frozen banana – she saves some for a snack later on too.

Her next meal is usually scrambled eggs with cottage cheese or roasted vegetables and she has a plain Greek yoghurt as a snack after that.

Dinner is tofu with roasted vegetables.

Throughout the day she has chia seeds and linseed oil too.

    If you know ANYTHING about how this thing operates,(I don't) I would seriously advise you not to utter a single further word of response, (As I don't know anything about how this thing operates is it still advisable for me to take your advice?) as you will get drawn into many dark areas. (I won't get drawn into anything unless I choose to, and if I get dragged in, I have a torch) Even well intentioned sounding questions may have a sting. (If I can't handle a sting at 39 years of age it's a pretty poor show) Difficult to resist the send button, (not difficult, but I am amused by all this) I know, but just look at Angel Frost for example (who?) Good luck, and don't do a Dawn French! (You mean get famous and make loads of money?! I really don't mind if I do!) ;)

    "@raidermanuk - Hi there, I'll be honest...I haven't seen the article in the paper yet, only online. It is what it is. There will always be things that could have been added or left out, depending on what the reader's perspective is, but if anyone can take anything from it that's positive, then I'm happy. Yes, 3 times a week I lift weights, do yoga, use Kettlebells and complete 3 HIIT routines with plenty of bodyweight exercises. My yoyoing days are (hopefully) over. You're right, the exercise really matters. My life has changed completely in the last few years and now I am focused on fine-tuning...I really do want to help others do the same:D

    Bernie73..........nice little story for TiG, and one to inspire many, I'm sure. However, many commentators on this site feel that TiG is not only lightweight in it's actual stories, but also they lack depth. Hence the nasty comments. If you know ANYTHING about how this thing operates, I would seriously advise you not to utter a single further word of response, as you will get drawn into many dark areas. Even well intentioned sounding questions may have a sting. Difficult to resist the send button, I know, but just look at Angel Frost for example. Good luck, and don't do a Dawn French!

    Bernie, you're a bit of a looker, so I wouldn't kick you of out bed for passing wind, but judging by the content of your breakfast smoothie, I'm not so sure.

    Bernie73 What I said in my last comment is relevant to this story too. There's a lot more that the newspaper could have written about it that would have been of interest and help to the average (overweight) reader. My thoughts are that it's not that they couldn't be bothered but they just don't have the resources - which rather defeats the object of what they do. Out of interest, do you have an exercise routine or is your weight loss due only to diet? If exercise is not part of your program to you think it might help reduce the risk of yoyoing by taking the pressure off diet a little?

    Free2opine You're certainly right about the pathway to decline. What's really bad is that stories, even when handed to the paper on a plate, are rarely developed to their potential. With regard to moderators I know for a fact that some comments are removed without being moderated. Hit the report but (for any reason, genuine or not) and the comment is removed. Very frustrating.

    @geraint2010 - lol, that my diet is '****' is a matter of opinion, I wouldn't thank you for a steak or red wine, and I am overjoyed that you have never had a weight problem...good for you. @Beekeeper - as for being 'intrusive', I wanted it to be published because I hope to inspire anyone else who has used food for anything other than hunger that if I can do it, they can too. If one person is inspired, then it was worth it. Pointless to you, maybe, but not to many others. 'Idiotic', again, a matter of opinion which you are entitled to. All the best :)
