Folks, I’m 10 or so weeks in and have lost around 12kg or close to 2 stone! The slow carb diet is proving to be rather easy to follow and there’s only been a few days where I’ve been tempted to stray away from it.

Our weekly cheat day, Faturday, has been a godsend as we don’t have to delay cravings for very long. Friday is probably the toughest day of the week due to the end of week traditions of excess and the proximity of Faturday… but I endure with a snack of Biltong and a glass of Malbec after dinner to keep me on track.

The best bit is that I have now lost 11cm from my stomach and have dropped a shirt size!

This is one very happy Pete…
