Unlike our two elderly dogs who looked on with mature amazement at the cats antics. Preferred to ignore them. As for my new partner, she took command over the house, garden and animal duties, leaving me to indulge in my nutrition exploration.
It took a while.
More reading. First I had to understand my fasting approach, and how it was going to move me forward towards my nutrition programme. So, I backtracked a little and found one solution. For me, anyway, mate.
The complete guide to fasting, Jason Fung MD.I rate this book highly, and it should be on every weight management booklist. The value is being able to better understand how the body reacts to fasting, and the pros and cons of doing so. All backed up by scientific evidence. A real eye opener, and an explanation of what I had achieved by my amateur hit and miss regime.
This was followed by devouring several diet programme books – all of which added a little to my Keto knowledge – and all of which confused me further. Not only what to eat, but also how to manage a nutritional plan without gaining back the weight I had lost.

One man’s meat is another man’s poison, so to speak.
Any the wiser, mate?
