Diet by the NHS

So, the dietitian over at the NHS recommended me this diet. I’m am not totally convinced it is the right way forward as I suspect it contains a little bit too much carbohydrates for my likings. Aiming for 2000 kcal per day here.

Recall to never drink just before or during the meal!!!
