There are more diets out there than supermarkets. That’s a lot of diets. The world is diet-mad.
The temptation of celebrity-endorsed, low fat, low calorie, low carb, detox diets has been too much to resist. Every man, woman and child is feasting themselves silly on the shiny torsos of magazine demigods and starting intensive 6-month dieting regimes lasting all of, ahem, 6 days.
Whilst thinking of all those failed diets, I lost 24Ibs on the fishing rod diet.
Early to rise
A hearty English breakfast gets the brain working and the metabolism firing. Ready a packed lunch: sandwich, two bananas, biscuit and a big bottle of water. Load the fishing rod and kit into car.
After driving to within half a mile of the fishing spot, unload car and carry kit to the spot. Good bit of early morning exercise.
Set up kit and watch the sunrise. Uplifting to feel at one with nature. Peaceful and relaxing experience, increasing general well-being and grounding self.
Being away from the TV and affective advertising prevents any impulses being stirred. There is less cravings for food if there isn’t any seductive adverts. The fridge is miles away too.
Eat lunch at 12pm. With no other food around this stops constant snacking and helps to regulate the metabolism.
Catching fish is good exercise. The excitement of something taking the bait, raises the pulse and burns fat. If it’s a big fish, the wrestle is also good exercise.
After packing up the kit and walking back to the car, the reward for an enjoyable day fishing is a fresh fish for supper (accompanied with potatoes and vegetables). The fishing rod diet rocks.
