“The only way to keep your health is to eat what you don’t want, drink what you don’t like, and do what you’d rather not,” Mark Twain once wrote, predating the concerns of a generation of 5:2 dieters by a good century. It’s a common fear: that any attempt to eat better means somehow downgrading your quality of life, spending hours cramming steamed chicken into endless Tupperware containers and maybe – just maybe – never being able to have a Belgian bun again. But that’s not really true. You can improve your diet without sacrificing everything you hold dear.
First time I’ve seen it suggested to eat more butter. So much for the lactose intolerant…
They suggest getting a slow cooker, but no recipes. I’ve yet to encounter something I’d need one for, myself. Most of my stuff is a couple of sides/garnish (navy beans, mashed sweet potato, sauteed mushroom & onion…) I can use throughout the week with a variety of combinations (cod, salmon, steak, eggs). This way I can have something prepared quickly after training and it’s late.
Most diets boil down to: eat more vegetables®
