If Im honest Ive lucked out with my diet, namely because its entitled The Wine Diet yes, but also because I try and eat well anyway so its not too wildly different to what I eat now. The basis of it is a Mediterranean style diet so lots of fresh fruit and vegetables, oily fish, nut oils and lean meat whilst cutting down on sugar and refined flour (otherwise known as empty calories). Add in the recommended 1-4 glasses of wine per day (!) and Im laughing.
So yes, so far so similar. The thing is now that Im so acutely aware of what Im eating on a daily basis Im shocked at how often I go to reach for the croissants at a beauty launch or a chocolate bar come 4pm. Its all a matter of discipline though and making myself aware of just how pointless sugar-laden snacks really are. I wont deny there have been a couple of slip ups (sometimes an ice cold can of coke hits the spot like nothing else) but generally Ive been impressed with how good Ive been at filling my body with the good stuff. Oh and the wine helps a lot.
