It was a scene you seldom see. We got back last night from five heavenly days in Lebanon and I had actually LOST a kilo. When did you last lose weight on holiday (unless it was deepest India)? Exactly. Well I have the answer. You go on holiday with my friend Ghada.
Our holiday was not only lovely, but life-changing. The world according to Ghada is very simple. You eat almost exclusively things that are good for you. And you don’t drink. Also, in the same was as you do on the Viva Mayr Diet, you eat a huge breakfast (masses of fruit, cereals, seeds, tomatoes, even heavenly Lebanese bread things stuffed with cheese) a big lunch and you don’t even have dinner. You have a snack around 6pm.
It is the most amazing system. You sleep better, you feel better and you lose weight.
Ghada also uses only natural products on her skin. And when I say natural, I mean things we would normally eat. In other words while I was reaching for my Clarins night cream, she was busy putting mango skin on her face. I have to say her skin looks great; she looks great. But I am too attached to my products to give them up. Having said that I had the BEST exfoliation I have ever had on the beach, using nothing but sand. Here we are (Ghada, me and Leo in a row) rubbing our legs with nature’s own exfoliator.
So this evening I am going home and I don’t even have to think about what to cook for dinner. What a relief. And tomorrow I will wake up slim and energised. What’s not to like?
