Final day of my 5 day fast-mimicking Prolon diet

Final day of my 5 day fast-mimicking Prolon diet.
.
From tomorrow, I will be eating predominantly vegetables and slowly re-introducing protein with fish and chicken back into my daily diet.
.
As my 65th birthday approaches,  I felt it increasingly important to take stock of my health, returning to healthy eating and regular exercise as it had all gone pear-shaped during the Summer.
.
Friends say to me "but you look fine as you are" you don't need to lose weight" but visceral fat ( the internal fat around your organs can also be inside a slim or even skinny person.  Also we all know that to look good we need to FEEL good as well.
.
Visceral fat is a type of body fat that can’t be pinched or seen with the naked eye, and it surrounds vital organs, including the liver, pancreas and kidneys. Keeping levels of visceral fat can reduce the risk of heart disease, high blood pressure, the onset of type 2 diabetes and many other illnesses.

talkRADIO with Steph & Dom

Talking about getting ready and packing for your Summer holidays. Everything from beauty to style and if you are like myself, how we girls like to pack for eventualities, those what-if moments, often preparing days or even weeks in advance. I’ve found that most men can’t understand this as they often simply throw a small bag together on the morning of departure.
