Yoghurt is great... for speeding up moss and algae growth on new stone walls 😉

Another tin of soup down the hatch earlier. I've worked out it can take as little as two hours to work through the system 🙃

Got told to drink dilute apple juice as its a good hydrater - cider it is 😀

Here's a tale of how to lose 8lb, approximately 1/30th of body weight in four days .... not recommended but it did work

Firstly purchase a half rack of Pork Ribs, ideally the middle cut between the Pork Chop and the thin rib ends
Secondly, stick on a BBQ for just enough time to cook through, or so I thought.
Chop rack into individual ribs and turn individually to finish .... are you with me so far?

Now I tend to like meat 'just cooked' as in anything other than red meat to be cooked to where it just turns, brilliant with Ribs except one thing, the meat might have been just cooked but the bone unfortunately not. They did taste lovely though, nice and flavoursome, juicy, even the belly fat crisped up into soft crackling. My missus on the other hand doesn't like Pork as such so left it all to me, bonus..... or a wise decision?

That was Saturday evening/tea time.
Monday afternoon and teatime I'm freezing cold, shaking, devoid of energy, and I'm thinking I'd overdone during the day, but by 8:00pm I'm in bed shaking like a shiteing dog, stomach cramping, sweating, feeling nauseous, needing to sleep.
By time Tuesday morning came around I was wrecked, I needed to cut a hole in the mattress big enough for the big white telephone to fit in, a bucket to the side of the bed, curtains to remain closed for the duration, and to add to the ambience my missus said I stunk :eek:
Just about everything that could exit my body did so, the only thing that could pass my lips without an immediate response being required was milk or water, I was turning inside out wretching and squirming.
The missus had to change the bed sheets as they became damp with sweat, she moved into the spare room as she didn't want to spend a night in the same bed - and I couldn't blame her. Any modicum of concentration has gone out fo the window, even the telly and PC remained switched off as too much effort.

By Thursday evening the only food I'd managed since Monday was two part tins of soup, half a sandwich, and a couple of pints of milk, for what good anything did.
I've woken this morning feeling much better than yesterday, thanks for asking ;), lightheaded with a nagging headache and a mouth that tastes like Ghandi's flip-flop, and 8lb lighter than I started the week.

So let's see what today brings, I'm starting to feel hungry which is a plus point, I just need to make sure what goes down stay down ... onwards and upwards they say :D

The moral of the story is if cooking any white meat on the bone on a BBQ, cook it thoroughly through in the oven first - unless you want to follow my diet tips that is ;)
I cook marinated meat in the oven first and throw it on the bbq after for that reason 😋. Glad to hear your feeling betterish

In my defence, I should have put the ribs in the oven for a good hour or so before they even saw the BBQ. Although they were cooked I doubt in hindsight they reached a high enough temperature, and we were pushed for time to get the grandson home.
But hey ho, live and learn, at least it's just me and not the missus as well - :poop::sick:
I trust loo rolls and suitable soothing creams are currently available in Leeds,......Yes?.

Why bother with a BBQ if you have to cook it inside first🤔🤔🤔

Well woke up feeling great today, stomach seems to have calmed down, nausea no longer there, weather good outside, sun shining, might fire the BBQ up later :D

I envisage many constipated inhabitants of West Yorkshire beating a path to your door, for a cure!.
