You might be curious about this diet. I’m on it and it absolutely works. There’s just one secret. In between all the food that you stop and snack on, you have to walk. When I say walk, I means for hours. So I start the day with a little pastry and then begin to walk somewhere.
Before long I come across another pasticceria and I figure that it’s still morning and I could use another cappuccino so why not have another little something to go with it?
Keep walking. There’s just so much to see. It’s not quite time for lunch, but hey, that focaccia sure looks good. I can eat that and walk at the same time.
Now it’s lunch time and how can I pass up a bowl of pasta? Carbs, don’t runners load up on them before a race? I’m not exactly running, but I am walking, everywhere.
Mid afternoon and you know what that means? Why of course-gelato. It’s a given that if you’re in Italy you are going to eat gelato just about every day (okay, every day).
This was a combination of caramel and chocolate. Hits the spot every time.
This brings me to late afternoon. Almost time for a drink and a little something savory, but once the wine starts, the urge to walk around starts slowing down. I’ll save that for another post.
Yes, I’ve lost weight during my stay here. I love this diet!
