Food for Thought


I was in London today to meet an old friend, Greg Boyd, who is the only person I know who is a) a medical doctor; b) a lawyer; and c) nice. I haven't seen him for several years, but he doesn't appear to have aged. I, on the other hand, have sprouted grey hair and gained a lot of weight.

In the course of conversation, I complained to Greg that he had escaped gaining weight despite having to go with clients for lunches most days. He said this is because he's changed his eating habits: no breakfast, and skip two lunches a week. I've heard before that this could be successful in losing weight, but it's hard to separate the wheat from the chaff when it comes to what's good in terms of eating. Anyway, since Greg does have medical training (and two graduate degrees in the area) (did I mention he was smart? He's smart...), he looked all this up and was persuaded by the science. All for taking advantage of the free advice of someone who can charge £500 an hour in consultancy fees, I think maybe I'll try it.

I'll have breakfast on Tuesdays, though, as I visit my mother for breakfast on Tuesdays and if I don't she'll send me toast through the Royal Mail.

Irritatingly, before I met Greg I popped into a Café Nerd to cash in my one-drink-in-nine-is-free voucher and someone sloshed coffee on my scarf. That wasn't so bad, but then the scarf swung onto my chest and left a big coffee stain on it. I still smell of coffee now. Fortunately, Greg was too polite to comment. I did tell you he was nice...
