It’s sugar and wheat-free and completely made up of natiral ingredients. See photo with the ingredients listed. It was super yummy and felt very indulgent.
With breakfast yesterday at midday, lunch was at 4pm with bone broth supper at 7pm for the final and 3rd day of a 3 day consecutive fast.
As you can see it’s hardly starvation!
This quick and easy recipe was sliced organic beef from a rib of beef ( which was made into the bone broth) stir fried in coconut butter with spring greens ( again already cooked leftovers from another meal in the fridge) with wheat free soy sauce, teaspoon of honey, chopped garlic and chillies.
Yummy simple and healthy., @grayshottspa
Breaking the 5:2 fast with breakfast of spiced cured salmon with avocado and butter bean houmous ( no coffee)! Yummy and super healthy with omega 3 and good fats.
A swim in the indoor pool, a plunge in the very cold but invigorating icy plunge pool after a steam room. All fitted in befire a 16 minute hydrotherapy bath with Epsom salts which are great for magnesium, detoxification and relaxation.
Lunch is a buternut, chilli and lime soup followed by cold salmon with green baby pea shoots, a walnut dip and a designer swoosh of pureed beetroot. Accompanied with a rainbow mix of vegetables for vits ACE and zinc with their health giving benefits as antioxidants.
Of course digestive bitters and sauerkraut to start to get those digestive juices working for good gut health and a few soaked mixed nuts (and some olives) for their good fats.
So as you can see a Grayshott regime is by no means a starvation diet and there is still a 2 course dinner later after a pilates class.
No grains, no sugar, no milk,
but simply protein, healthy fats, vegetables,, fibre, nuts and fermented foods all helping the body to become its optimum best with a healthy functioning gut.
Pan fry scallops in a very hot pan with butter, olive oil or coconut oil. Sear or brown them very quickly so they don’t become rubbery.
In a separate frying pan heat the chorizo and already cooked new potatoes until browned.
Lightly boil tenderstem broccoli and add the samphire at the last minute.
So quick and easy and yummy.

You need to include good fats in your daily diet as they help regulate your metabolism, keep you feeling full longer, help transport vitamins and minerals around your body, and protect your vital organs.
A low fat diet is not good for you or even helps you to lose weight on a long term basis. But I am only including healthy fats not transfats or saturated fats in fast foods and processed foods.
