    There was a parallel discussion here on the forum. Interesting to see what the EU dictates to us for training

    Yes, to think that I was eating like that for years after my Heart Attack, I thought that I was doing good and could not understand the weight gain.

    You said you followed the guidelines, but not those pertaining to using this forum. Tut

    Since I too have had a heart attack, I am now following the Pioppi diet as formulated by Dr Aseem Malhotra who is a reknowned Cardiologist who gets BBC/ Skye airtime. It is somewhere between Mediterranean Diet and LCHF diet, but I adapt it for LC. I am of the opinion that My Omega oil is better ju-ju than Your Omega oil as it were. I just don't need a keto diet at the moment, so it fits the bill nicely. My weight dropped to a good place then has been quite stable since.

    I think you’ll find it’s an automatic censoring feature recently activated on the Forum. @DCUKMod will hopefully confirm this.

    Moderated for language for the benefit of any German readers.

    Edit: Thanks for clarification. I think Alan Turing would deem there to be a human on the other end of this connection as that does not appear to be an automated response (yet) I wonder what the Esperanto translation is?????? S******, I believe

    Moderated for language again. Please desist and remember this is a forum viewed all over the world. Thank you.

    I suspect maybe the umlaut has confused the enemy.

    Also sprach Zarathustra.

    I note that PHE has advised us to avoid red meats, so they too are ducking this language issue too. The word is Not Applicable to this thread. I yield.

    @Debandez I partially agree with what you say but I don't actually think docs do it for money, it's more likely they're ignorant about good dietary advice. I've challenged the "Eat well guidelines" and the dietitian thought I was extreme when I said I didn't want to eat fruit
