    Yeah, that is the reference for fat chicks, restriction to salad only, last 2 weeks and then they lose their shit and binge out on cake.

    Personally I follow a form of diet as well.
    Avoid sugar when I can, watch fat intake, try not to eat it when I can and not too much when I do, and opt for protein and nutrients rather than carby meals such as pasta.
    Also love salt but restrict my intake of it.
    So in a nutshell I’m also on a “diet” but in my mind I’m not, I’m just “selective” when I eat.

    Do you have any reasoning for doing the above??

    I can see a good reason for avoiding sugar, but why avoid fat? Fat is essential for healthy immune function, cell growth, brain development and health, memory, testosterone production, hormone production, maintaining good state of mental health, energy production, nutrition etc.

    Salt is an essential electrolyte required for nerve function and maximum physical and mental function.

    Because I love the combo of fats and salt, ie salami, prosciutto and cheese, I can easily get carried away and consume too much.
    Because it tastes so good I monitor my intake.

    All very delicious options, I would have to agree.

    Can't we all.

    Nothing wrong with monitoring intake as long as you are getting enough, just sounded like you were restricting or minimising it in the original post.

    Too much of anything isn’t good Mick. Even you can work that out. Surely, but maybe not.
