Poached eggs on smashed avocado with chopped chillies .
A 2-egg omelette cooked in organic unpasteurised butter (Waitrose) with avocado and wilted spinach with a little butter.
Good fats in the avocado and butter, eat moderate amount of good fats to help to burn off and not retain body fat , Omega 3 from the flax seed oil, protein in the egg and good carbs and vits in the spinach.
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.

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.

Lunch (I’m stuffed now)! Is lentil and roasted tomato soup and then Thai Green Curry with a side of mixed vegetables (various greens vegs and onions)
Nap time next and then maybe a yoga class or a swim with possible energising very speedy immersion in the icy plunge pool.
A healthy gut supports your immune system, your body’s response to stress and how your body responds to the food you eat.
Fermented foods such as Sauerkraut eaten before a meal help trigger the digestive processes. As do digestive bitters or a tablespoon of organic raw apple cider vinegar.
This can also help acid reflux problems.
I suggest to my clients to commence each meal with a teaspoon of Sauerkraut to aid digestion and gut health. I’ve added some ‘good oil’ for additional Omega3 for its anti-inflammatory properties, healthy joints and brain function.
This homecooked breakfast consists of Portobello mushrooms, wilted organic spinach leaves, an organic 2-egg omelette cooked in coconut oil with chopped chives for added flavour and some Isle of Wight tomatoes.
