Well, there is nothing secret about it. It is just a rigorous application of the "healthy" diet concept, in all things. Plus a complete revision of my previous Bolognese based cooking techniques.
Plus KNOWING it will be a long term affair, and not weighing myself more than twice a month, and knowing that SOMETIMEs the weight will go up, even when the trend is down.
And a degree of patience, having faith that it will work in it's own good time.
And having people who remain supportive, even in your most ANGRY, irrational, low blood sugar rants. Because they understand. That is really quite important too. I do not think it would be easy to do what I have done entirely on your own.
But if you can gather it all together, the world is 3 sizes smaller ;).
