Some of the angriest comments I get on instagram are from people who swear that the keto diet is helping them and that I’m soooo incredibly ignorant and/or deceitful for saying that the body prefers carbs.

However, for every comment where someone is swearing by keto, there are twenty more comments with people saying that they too tried keto, with hope bursting in their hearts, only to find that after a few months it had fucked up their metabolism, hormones, energy levels, sanity, and has been really hard to recover from, mentally and physically.

I’ve spent a long time trying to decide how to be diplomatic and to not claim to know what’s best for everyone’s body. Because– everyone is different. Some people are allergic to fucking tomatoes. We are all different.

I’m also not a doctor or nutritionist or dietitian so I have no authority or desire to weigh in on diets that people claim are medically necessary and helpful to them. TFID is concerned with the mental and spiritual ramifications of chronic dieting, it just so happens that there are very physical consequences to dieting, too.

So in my attempts to be diplomatic, I say things like: I’m so glad you feel good on keto, but this is an account for people trying to heal from chronic dieting or disordered eating, and your comments about keto do not belong here. And many many people have had opposite experiences on keto.

I’ve also compared keto to wheelchairs or mobility devices. Meaning, just because a select number of people are benefitted (read: children with seizures, maybe), that doesn’t mean that it cures any underlying condition, and also doesn’t mean that people who don’t need keto/mobility devices should be using them, in fact if they do, it will probably make things worse in the long run. (I also asked Anna Sweeney, MS, RD, LDN, CEDRD-S, who uses a wheelchair, if this was a cool comparison and she gave me the green light.)

But the most honest thing I can say about the keto diet is: what the fuck do you think I’m going to say? 

Keto is a very, very restrictive diet, and therefore it has no place in or on or around The Fuck It Diet. It has no place in the lives of people recovering from disordered eating or eating disorders.

And if you are someone who is on the keto diet and you feel great, then you don’t need the Fuck It Diet either. Why are we fighting? If your diet is truly supporting your mental and physical health: that’s great. Round of applause. Most people don’t have that experience, and I’d love for you to check in with me in two or three years and tell me how you’re doing, too.

More frankly: I don’t care how you eat, Pamela. Eat a no-carb-diet to your heart’s content. I have no desire to evangelize you. If it is ‘working’ for you – I’m not going to try and tell you it’s not working.

If you want to know what I think, the short term “benefits” of the keto diet, and any diet for that matter, are just that: short term. The long term effects can be physically and mentally devastating, and have yet to be truly studied.

So, where does this leave us?

Do you need to do keto?

If you want to recover from chronic dieting: NO. HELL NO.

But could keto cure your chronic health problems? 

Probably not. It was shown to help children with epilepsy in the 1920s, but it still comes with side effects (kidney strain, hypoglycemia, dehydration, GI issues, etc). Are those side effects worth it for kids with epilepsy? Yes! Potentially! Is it the cure-all that people claim it is? I don’t think so.

Will keto help you lose weight?

Temporarily, yes. Like all diets. But now we are getting into our usual TFID rigemroll. Diets backfire longterm. It’s how we are wired. And, diets and weight loss can actually negatively impact health, against all our cultural common knowledge. We are all confused about weight loss and health. We are assuming weight loss is always good for us – often it’s not .

But more importantly, the psychology of extreme dieting, even for ‘health’, is almost identical to eating disorders. So if your lifestyle is negatively impacting your mental health… it’s not a good idea. It’s not sustainable. What’s health if it doesn’t take into account mental health and stress levels?

The psychology of extreme dieting is all consuming – you have to buy in. You have to believe that what you are doing could really help you. You have to believe that maybe it already really is helping you, but you just haven’t experienced the benefits yet. I have personally done this over and over and over. I’ve gone from extreme to extreme diet (Keto, Paleo, Raw Vegan, etc etc etc) and I always had to buy in. I had to believe. I understand. I empathize. I really do.

If you feel that keto truly is helping you, that’s great. But no, it doesn’t belong on or near the f**k it diet. And yes, the body prefers carbs to keep you alive. You need stress hormones to run on little or no carbs.

Stress is not what we want.

The Keto Diet Explained written in text with an overlay image of salmon, broccoli, avocados, eggs, and other foods associated with keto.

Looking to have keto explained?

Most importantly, are you looking to know my thoughts on it?

Fuck, how much time do you have on your hands?!

Oh wait, you’re reading this right now while also thumbing through Instagram or something, which is more than likely during the course of a workday. Given that you obviously don’t have a job, it’s not like you’re doing anything constructive with your time.

Be that as it may, let’s proceed!

If you haven’t heard by now, keto is the wondrous eating approach that helps people lose weight in the spare time it has when not curing cancer, fighting racism, feeding the multitude with five loaves and two fish, etc.

More specifically, a ketogenic diet is a high fat, moderate protein, and low carb diet that induces ketosis, which is when the body shifts from burning glucose for fuel to having to break down fat — both body and dietary — to produce ketones for its energy needs. Originally used to treat epileptic seizures, keto has since gone mainstream and is now the trendy thing to do.

It seems like EVERYBODY is either

(A) doing keto and has a story about losing a shitload of weight on it


(B) thinking about doing keto because of some story about someone losing a shitload of weight on it.

The losing of a shitload of weight apparently makes keto magical, pointing to the evilness of carbs. But here’s the thing: keto is like any other diet, being that it’ll work as long as you’re in a caloric deficit.


Taking in less calories than your body burns is the scientific underpinning of ALL weight loss. As such, it’s the consumption of fewer calories, not the limiting of carbs, that’s responsible for keto’s efficacy as a weight loss approach.

But wait, if it’s about fewer calories and not carbs, then why do people see success from keto when other diets failed?

That comes down to adherence. Someone who, for example, quits the cabbage soup diet then strikes gold with keto most likely didn’t comply with their previous diet long enough to see results because eating cabbage soup EVERY…FUCKING…DAY wasn’t enjoyable, whereas the ability to eat fatty foods on keto was more tolerable to them, thus helping with their adherence to it. It’s as simple as that.

So yes, people do see success on keto.

If people are successful on keto, then what’s the fucking problem?!?!

Well, they also gain weight back when they stop doing it and reintroduce carbs into their life.

Why do they stop?

One reason is because the diet is hard to follow, as daily eating turns into a math equation to ensure that your macro consumption doesn’t take you out of oh so precious ketosis. The other reason for stopping keto has to do with carbs providing energy and eating little to no carbs isn’t sustainable for most people.

Regardless the reason for stopping keto, with that decision comes an increase in carb intake that’s far greater than what they were consuming on the diet. As such, they gain some weight back when they reintroduce carbs because carbs help with storing glycogen in the muscle cells. That plus the associated water retention adds up to weight gain.

But that’s in the short-term once carbs are added back on the menu. How about the months and years after reaching your goal weight and coming off keto? How does weight loss success stack against other diets? How well do keto practitioners keep the weight off?

When it comes to long-term results from using keto over other diets, there’s no research regarding that specifically. It just hasn’t been conducted yet. Of note, though, is that the overwhelming majority of people who lose weight on diets regain it back and more within five years. What accounts for the high failure rate? Why, that’s due to many people doing little to change their eating habits and relationship with food! As a result, they go right back to doing the same shit that caused their initial weight problems. With this in mind, because people see keto as a quick fix like any other diet, one would expect its practitioners to go back to their old eating habits of not just eating carbs but also scarfing down an entire overinflated bag of chips.

That’s clearly ¡no bueno!

It’s for this reason that the focus should be on making a lifestyle change, which is permanent, and not going on a diet, which is temporary.

But that’s for weight loss. How does a keto approach stack up for muscle building?

While keto stacks up well against other eating approaches for weight loss, its nutritional guidelines don’t fare so well for muscle building.

If one were to go by the strict dictates of keto and get less than 5 percent of their calories from carbs, that wouldn’t be enough to supply muscle glycogen stores with the energy necessary to lift heavy enough weights to prompt muscle growth. The last I checked, prompting muscle growth is kind of the point of lifting weights. Moreover, not only is glucose the preferred fuel source for the anaerobic energy system that’s in effect during weightlifting, but glucose is also the preferred fuel source for muscle recovery so the body can repair the microdamage in the muscle fibers that are produced by the mechanical stress of lifting weights. Coupled with keto providing an inadequate amount of carbs and ketones serving as a secondary, not optimal, fuel source, the second strike against the diet is that it can impair your ability to heal and become stronger.

Care to take a guess what the third strike is?

If you said that the diet doesn’t provide enough protein to drive muscle protein synthesis, or the building of muscle, then you’re correct!

The only thing left for us to cover now is if keto is safe.

Is it?

That’s a relative question. If you’re someone with preexisting conditions affecting your pancreas, liver, thyroid, or gallbladder, then following a keto diet wouldn’t be wise without first consulting a medical professional. The same also applies to those with elevated cholesterol levels, as well as cardiovascular issues like atherosclerosis, atrial fibrillation, and heart failure.

As for someone who’s healthy prior to beginning keto, it should be kept in mind that the restrictions associated with the diet can cause nutrient deficiencies, kidney stones, and increase the risk of heart disease. Other potential side effects include dehydration, muscle cramps, and insomnia, diarrhea, Prurigo pigmentosa (a/k/a “keto rash”), and keto flu, the name for a collection of maladies suffered during the initial days of the transition to a keto diet as your body experiences carb withdrawal.

All of that said, keto is like virtually everything else in life: it has its risks. It’s up to the individual to research them and perform a cost-benefit analysis to determine if the reward is worth the potential cost, which I’m sure you do prior to every decision you make that may have an impact on your health and well-being.

You’ve just had keto explained to you.

To recap, keto is the new diet trend, much like Atkins, Paleo, Mediterranean, Caveman, and other diets before it. Clearly running counter to the idea that fat makes you fat, keto is a high fat diet that can help you lose fat…

…like all the diets that came before it.

And because keto is like all the diets that came before it, it isn’t necessary to lose weight. What’s necessary is a caloric deficit. What’s even more necessary for keeping it off is a lifestyle change.

Additionally, while ketosis can supply energy for lifting and recovery, it’s not optimal. As such, keto probably shouldn’t be your go-to approach for muscle building.

Lastly, keto is as safe and unsafe as almost everything else on this planet.

There, that’s enough of a TL;DR summary because we all know you didn’t read all that shit above and instead scrolled down here to the bottom hoping there was a synopsis of it!

I’m onto you, people!!!

“Ketosis” is suddenly (hyperbolically) everywhere. Ketosis surged in popularity alongside the Atkins Diet in the aughts, but it seems to have snuck back into the cultural lexicon. As Health.com reported in December, “ketogenic diet foods” was one of the top diet searches of 2016, perhaps as a result of people like Kim Kardashian and Gwyneth Paltrow publicly praising the benefits of low-carb diets in recent years. Ketosis is a little controversial, though — particularly because the research is mixed and still in its earlier stages. But what the hell is it? If you’re thinking of trying it out or just generally curious, Dr. Robin Berzin, Columbia-trained MD and founder of Parsley Health, weighs in below on what ketosis actually is and how to decide if a ketogenic diet is worth exploring.

What is ketosis?

Ketosis is a normal metabolic process that occurs when the body uses fat for energy instead of sugar. Typically, the body (specifically the brain) uses glucose (sugar) for energy. Entering into a state of ketosis where the body uses fat instead requires severely limiting carbohydrate consumption. You can do this by fasting or by following an extremely low-carb diet. In other words, you essentially force your body to utilize fat for fuel by depriving it of sugar. This type of diet is known as a ketogenic diet, and it typically includes getting around 75% of your calories from fat, 20% of them from protein and 5% from carbs.

What health benefits does ketosis potentially have?

The original medicinal use for a ketogenic diet was established in the 1920s for the treatment of pediatric epilepsy. Researchers found that a ketogenic diet dramatically helped to decrease the number of seizures in epileptic patients. Since then, the ketogenic diet has also shown to improve symptoms and cognitive function in individuals with both Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease. Promising new research has also shown that following a ketogenic diet may help to kill cancer cells and reduce tumor size in addition to preventing the development of precancerous cells altogether.

Aside from the treatment of disease, the ketogenic diet is often used, quite simply, for weight loss. It’s shown to be mostly effective in this regard, especially in obese individuals. Some evidence also indicates improved moods are experienced by those following a ketogenic diet (Edit note: some find the extremely restrictive nature of the diet to do the opposite.) Biohacking enthusiasts are increasingly using ketosis on a regular basis to achieve target body fat percentage and achieve states of metal focus and clarity.

What are the signs of being in ketosis?

There are three ways in which ketosis can be detected in the body. The first is a blood test, the second is urine and the third is breath. When you have a large amount of ketones in your blood, your body eliminates them through both urine and breathing. Ketone urine test strips sold at most local pharmacies are probably the easiest way to identify if your body has entered into ketosis.

People in ketosis also often have a characteristic breath odor often called “fruity breath.” This is the result of the lungs releasing the built up ketone body byproducts which results in the sweet fruit-like odor. This way of assessing ketones is the most subjective.

Edit note: Research shows it can also cause things like dehydration, fatigue, headaches constipation and kidneys stones.

Should I try a ketogenic diet?

Getting your body into a state of ketosis is not something that happens overnight. It can take somewhere between one day and a full week on a very low-carb/high fat diet, usually kicked off by a period of fasting, before the body starts to utilize ketone bodies for energy.

At Parsley Health, we guide people through an individualized nutrition program and sometimes that includes short periods of ketosis. Most often we use this for people with issues like weight gain, fatigue, brain fog and cancer, along with other treatments as appropriate.

Since there is not enough research to determine the effects of following a ketogenic diet over the long-term, it’s hard to say if everyone should try it or not. For some people with cholesterol problems, a ketogenic diet can make them worse in the short term. (Longer term, these effects appear to reverse, but it’s advisable that you know what your cholesterol looks like before trying it.) Some also report that a ketogenic diet mightreduce testosterone production and thyroid function.

If you have any chronic conditions, while you may benefit from a ketogenic diet, you should certainly talk to your doctor first. For most people at Parsley, we do not recommend doing a ketogenic diet long-term, but it can be an effective tool used short-term and periodically, if approached carefully and thoughtfully.

Please consult your doctor before trying a ketogenic diet.

What The Keto Diet Actually Does To Your Body - The Human Body

How I Lost Weight Eating Cheese and Bacon

Losing weight is hard, especially since my job requires me to taste fries, pizza, and BBQ in order to tell readers what's good. So, when I found a fat-burning diet that not only lets me, but REQUIRES me to eat copious amounts of cheese, avocado, and bacon, I jumped at the opportunity -- and easily lost 10lbs in one month. But before I get into that, let me tell you how I got chubby. 

I grew up a latchkey kid, most of my adolescence spent in the air-conditioned indoors. Sports didn't come easily to me, and fitness was something reserved for the skinny white women I saw on TV. My family was not particularly active, and I only remember seeing my mom exercise a handful of times. The most amusing memory I have is of her furiously pumping away on a shoddy stair stepper, likely purchased from a Tony Little infomercial. 

Like most kids in the ‘90s, I was raised on carbohydrate- and MSG-ridden crap: Bagel Bites, Hot Pockets, Cup Noodles, and Totino's Party Pizzas, all eaten while watching Saved by the Bell. A home-cooked meal made with vegetables that didn't come from a can was a rare occasion for my single, career-focused mother. 

When I moved to Austin five years ago, I was both fascinated and confused by its tan, fit residents who woke up at sunrise... to run! The people I knew in my hometown of San Antonio didn't hike or jog or do yoga. And I had never heard of (much less set foot in) an REI. 

Today, I make part of my living as a food and drink writer, which certainly has its perks; I get a lot of free booze and fancy food I otherwise wouldn't be able to afford. The problem is that when you're in your 30s, and your entire day is spent in front of a screen, it's very easy to pack on the pounds. In my case, 30 of them. I knew I had to do something about my increasing waistline -- and then I stumbled across a Reddit post with the caption: "Down 50 Pounds in 6 Months with Keto Diet." 

What the hell is the keto diet?

Keto is short for ketogenic, and in the most basic terms, the keto diet is a high-fat, low-protein, VERY low-carb diet. When you consume very few carbs (under 30g), you induce a metabolic state called ketosis, in which your liver starts producing ketones from stored fatty acids, which are then used for energy. Usually, you get your energy from carbohydrates, which are broken down into glucose or stored as glycogen. The idea as it applies to weight loss is that by switching your body's energy source, you'll start to burn off some of that extra fat you've been storing.

The history of this diet is a bit strange, especially compared to the "lose weight fast!" low-carb fad diets most people have become accustomed to in the modern era. It was developed in the 1920s as a treatment for childhood epilepsy, but fell out of favor as pharmaceutical options came on the market. It's recently come back in vogue, though, because it can be pretty damn effective for controlling seizures: various forms of fasting diets have been used since 500 BCE to control epilepsy, which doctors now understand induces ketosis when the body has no carbs for fuel.

Its return to popularity has probably been helped along, too, by the renewed interest in low-carb, high-protein diets like Atkins and Paleo -- while those diets encourage drastic carb reduction, they typically skew heavier on lean protein and lower on fat. The result is that they don't shift your body's source of energy, meaning you don't enter ketosis on a standard Atkins or Paleo diet.

Is what the keto fuck

“Hey, Bob. How are you?”

“I’m keto.”


“Keto. Key-toe. Keeeeeyyyyy-tooooeeee. Ketogenic diet. State of ketosis. Makin’ ketones! It’s the best. Because grains are evil, fruit is toxic, and fat is amazing. Big Carb has been lying to us all along. Gotta eat fat to burn fat or you’ll be a fatty fat fat fatso. Don’t be a dirty sugar burner …”

Go back a few years, and you can replace all the “keto” words with “paleo.”

Despite being the scientology of diets, paleo had its day. It was a brilliant marketing concept because “pussification” of men and gotta be caveman and “ancestral health” even though it was lauding a time when babies were dying like bugs on a windshield. Now, as revealed by this Google Trends screenshot from 2004 to present, the paleo diet has jumped the shark.

Alas, our penchant for dietary dumbfuckery abhors a vacuum. Humanity needed something equally stupid to replace it. Enter keto.

Here’s the Google Trends search results for keto from the last five years:

It’s the hot new thing that isn’t actually new.

The diet, which involves dramatic carbohydrate restriction in favor of a very high fat diet, first became popular in the 20s and 30s as a treatment for epilepsy. It fell out of favor when new anticonvulsant drugs were developed. Although it was still used, mostly in children, for whom said drugs didn’t work. Nowadays, people who really need to shut the fuck up are pushing keto as a bullshit cancer cure. Unfortunately, there are doctors who promote the keto diet, but it’s worth noting just how terrible nutrition education is for physicians. I’m married to one.

Variations on low carb have been at the forefront of fad diets over the past half century for a couple of reasons. The first such explanation is that, for someone who eats a significant amount of highly refined carbohydrates (which is a lot of people), suddenly cutting way back on that can result in a de facto restriction of calories, leading to weight loss. This happens despite many low carb proselytisers proclaiming low carb diets violate the physical laws of the universe regarding how weight loss works. What’s more, carb restriction can lead to a higher protein intake, which is beneficial to satiety.

This isn’t intended to say low carb is some amazing diet—it fares no better over the long term than most other diets. That is to say, poorly. Adherence is what matters most, and some find LC to work because of its low rule complexity. “Don’t eat carbs” is a pretty simple rule.

But going very low carb sucks if you’re athletic. Beyond that, to see my articles about why high fat diets aren’t great for either weight loss or health, read this, and this, and this. And should you think sugar toxic, well, it is. But the dose makes the poison. My piece here. And sugar addiction? About that: this and this. Think keto is superior to the first law of thermodynamics so calories don’t matter? Start here, then go here.

Nutrition expert extraordinaire Alan Aragon says you don’t have to have carbohydrates to survive, but adds, “There is a difference between surviving and thriving.” Yes, you can live on an extremely low carbohydrate diet, but it doesn’t mean it’s anywhere near an optimal eating strategy for living. (Note: This interview was conducted prior to Aragon being accused of multiple instances of sexual harassment and assault. I have since broken all ties with him.)

Why is keto the dumbfuck diet du jour? First, we need to understand whywe have a rotating ream of ridiculous eating strategies that ebb and flow in popularity. Much of it has to do with our history of religious belief.

For my piece “Anti-Sugar Cultists Are Totally Fucking Batshit,” I interviewed religious studies professor Alan Levinovitz who spoke of how dietary restrictions have been part of religion for millennia as part of enforcing purity rules among the faithful and further creating an “us and them” mentality between followers and heathens. From the article:

“Dietary zealotry has been around forever,” Levinovitz said, “but nowadays science has occupied many spheres of authority that were once the domain of religion. What is new now is the masking of what is ultimately a spiritual belief with science. They wrap spiritual or ethical or religious beliefs about food in scientific rhetoric.”

Paleo had a coolness factor to it, coupled with (bullshit) evolutionary “science” to legitimize it in the eyes of the followers. I find it amusing they coined the oxymoronic term “ancestral health” to promote a diet that (poorly) mimicked a time when women lived to a ripe old age of died in childbirth.

Keto sounds cool too because you’re allegedly “hacking” your body to make keytone bodies while eating lots of bacon and butter because carbs are toxic and calories don’t matter. Teach your body to burn fat for fuel instead of sugar. All that bullshit. The diet wasn’t new, but the marketing push was. Now we have a plethora of new supplements, so you can keto even harder. If you saw the surge coming in this diet and got in on the ground floor, you could have made a fortune. Plenty of paleo folks got rich by jumping on the caveman dietary bandwagon early.

Dumbfuck diets come and go. This is not a new, modern thing.

Lord Byron popularized the vinegar and water diet in 1820. No word if he was an actual douchebag, although there were rumors of incest and spousal abuse.

In 1925 there was the Cigarette Diet, based on the appetite suppressing effects of nicotine.

There was a grapefruit diet in the 30s, and a cabbage soup diet in the 50s.

The “Master Cleanse” dates back to the 40s.

The Cookie Diet was all the rage in 1975.

Slimfast. Dexatrim. Ayds. Oprah’s liquid diet. South Beach. Gluten free. And whatever weird shit Gwyneth Paltrow is putting in her face right now. We’ve been dumb about diet for a long time now.

Keto is just the latest, but as history indicates, you won’t want to invest too heavily in the market for keto supplements, because the diet will eventually go the way of all the others (although it may be repackaged and find traction again years down the road). What will replace it? If you know the answer to that, please let me know. I have some money that could use a high return to help fund my retirement.

Whatever the next big diet fad is, I expect it will have a veneer of scientific legitimacy mixed with a coolness factor that makes people feel superior for being on it. We have a tendency to place moral value on food and define ourselves by what we eat. It’s all pretty stupid.

As problematic as he’s been in other areas by falsely promoting organic and saying, “If you can’t pronounce it, don’t eat it,” Michael Pollan did have some good advice regarding a simplified approach to eating, and not worrying overmuch about what we shove in our face holes.

A recent piece in Quartz about the hysteria over clean eating had a former college athlete lament: “By the middle of my university years, food took up a stunning amount of my mental energy. It was far more exhausting than running 40 miles a week.”

Here’s a hint: If your diet requires to pee on a stick to tell you if you’re doing it right, then you’re doing it wrong.

It need not be so complicated. Balance and moderation are not dirty words. You can find a healthy diet that works for you and doesn’t drive you bugshit. If you need professional assistance, that’s what registered dietitians are for. But stay away from anyone calling themselves a holistic nutritionist.

I also wrote a book. If you want the quick and dirty for weight loss, my Caloric Deficit Cheat Sheet is also popular.

I’m not sure what the next dumbass diet will be, but my advice is to start ignoring it in advance.

And to any keto lovers I’ve vexed, prior to commenting, please read this, then this.

So, back to the beginning. Why did I even try to do this crazy diet in the first place? The whole reason I even decided to try out this diet in the first place is because a model on the books at my work (I work as a model booker) is on the diet and shred quite hard doing it. Her mum is one of the leading experts in this diet in New Zealand, and she sent through a document she'd written about it because I was curious. Then, my friend Nikki Crerar, told me she was trying out the diet and was feeling great and encouraged me to try it, and I trust her because she a.) studies nutrition, and b.) would never do anything to herself that was unhealthy or 'bad', and c.) has never put me wrong before. 

So basically I read benefits of the diet were that you would get better skin, more energy, mental clarity and you would lose weight. I'm not gonna lie, I was keen for all of these things but bringing the body fat percentage down and getting the skin glowing were both the real motivators for me. (Vain, I know.)

So this was all happening around the 12th of May. I did a tonne of online research on the whole thing, and asked Nikki about five thousand questions, and then decided I would start in June, once I had moved house and done a bit more research. I made a loose plan to keep a diary of what I ate, how I felt, and my weight and measurements as a record of how it all went. Then I got a phone call from the PR girl at Nike, asking if I would participate in a photoshoot for a zine they were doing on the 21st of May and I freaked out about having my photo taken, flagged waiting 'til June and started the diet almost straight away, on the 14th of May, with a plate of scrambled eggs with cream and butter.
