Part two of my experiment is not really working for me either

Since 15th of October I’ve been on part two of my experiment, the Low Carb High Fat diet. First let me say that the food is very tasty and that I haven’t had any problems about staying on a strict diet – well maybe except for having a night cap now and then. For the […]

Part one of my experiment is over

Since last time I wrote about my Alma Nissen drinking cure here on the blog, I’ve stopped following it. While I felt great during the first 2 weeks of the cure, I gradually began not feeling so good later on. A week ago – last Thursday – I got a sore throat, and Friday I […]

This is not for the faint hearted

When I was a child, we never ate strong spicy food. Our food tasted of the vegetables that were in it and pork, beef, poultry or fish, where the taste was enhanced with salt and a little pepper, and that was it. The only exception to it was an occasional spoonful of mustard if we […]

Am I getting the flue?

There has been a kind of flue like cold going around here for a while. Everybody I know has had it except me, but then I barely ever get sick. Then last night I started having a sore throat, just a little bit, and in the morning I started feeling like I have a slight […]

Banana shake, salad, fruit and more potato soup

As expected my diet today differed a lot from my normal days on Alma Nissen’s drinking cure, and to be honest, I was quite pleased about it. I started the day with a smoothie made purely from bananas and almond milk. You should try it, it tastes great. For two people we blended 6 bananas […]

Visiting my youngest daughter

My youngest daughter Lise lives and works as an architect in Odense, where the great Danish storyteller Hans Christian Andersen was born. I think he only lived here for a short while, but people are very proud of him, as they should be. Before Lise moved here a few months ago, she and I lived […]

Day 15 of the experiment

Today, in the morning of my 15th day on Alma Nissen’s drinking cure, I stepped on the scale and found that I’d lost another 2 kilos, so now I’m 5 kilos lighter all in all. Before I started this experiment, I told you that my health was good and I still think that’s true, but […]

Day 8 of the experiment

This morning, exactly 7 days after I started on Alma Nissen’s drinking cure, I stepped on the scale and found that I had lost 3 kilos. Without feeling hungry at any point, but instead feeling absolutely perfect. Yesterday I didn’t write any blog post. Instead I listened to some interviews from the ‘Sexy Younger You […]

Day five of the experiment

Today I took a closer look at, what I’m eating and at the amount of calories I get per day. It’s not a lot, only about 1250 calories a day, but still I’m not hungry. I feel good and satisfied. Maybe it’s because I also get a lot of water at the same time. Here […]

Day two of the experiment

So far doing the Alma Nissen drinking cure has been unexpectedly easy. It’s not a real fast, because I get the vegetables in the soup. Still I had expected a headache, nausea, dizziness and visual disturbances like I experienced with other fasts and diets like Fit for Life, but so far – nothing! I haven’t […]
