    I had a double espresso cos I was feeling a bit tired after an over night ferry to portsmouth from France - 1 am the following morning I was still wired and could not sleep!

    Gonna try without for a couple of weeks but just wanted to see if this is familiar territory.
    Yep it's familiar for MF. He's decided to drop the espresso in favour of a glass of water to go with his Greggs 3 pies,Cornish Pastie and 4 doughnut lunch. Says he feels much better and could eat it all again, which he generally does.

    Then one day I read the ingredients, 65g of sugar!

    Holy guacamole! That's nauseating

    There really should be a massive tax on added sugar. But it won't happen while Jamaica remains in the Commonwealth.

    (I know fruit juice contains quite a bit of sugar already, and that's fair enough, not much one can do about it.)

    I thought they could call juice "pure" only if there was no added effing sugar!!

    Pretty much, just checked their website. 9.1g per 100ml.

    4g is one teaspoon. So 9.1 x 5 / 4 = 11.375 teaspoons (using their latest nutritional info).

    If you are serious about weight loss then follow these principles;

    Stop drinking alcohol
    Drink water - and lots of it
    Avoid tea and coffee / green tea is ok
    Do not eat bread, rice, pasta, potatoes

    Your liver is an essential organ when metabolising fat. By following the above you keep it in peak performance.

    https://www.dietdoctor.com/low-carb/keto
    You know, I've dabbled with keto in the past but there's a good argument to be made that his is *not* a diet that should be taken on by anybody without medical supervision. It's an extreme diet and one that is usually prescribed by doctors in extreme cases.

    http://angry-chef.com/blog/the-natur...rnative-part-1

    There's no one size fits all approach to weight loss, but the best general advice that can be given is: eat a balanced range of fats, proteins and carbohydrates, reduce alcohol intake, increase vegetable intake, consumer fewer calories than you expend on a daily basis, exercise and instead of demonising any one particular food as "bad", just try and cut out or reduce the high calorie foods that you personally find addictive or know that you eat too much of - that could be bread, cakes, sweets, lattes, pizza etc.

    There is nothing inherently unhealthy about bread, pasta, rice or potatoes - its just that a lot of overweight people have a tendency to overeat some or all of these foods. If you can't get through the day without eating more than 2 slices of bread, then maybe stop buying bread for a while.
