My husband is seriously toying with the idea of doing Michael Mosley's The Fast 800 Diet after my friend Tina and her husband Stephen have both successfully lost a stone each in three weeks. While we've had a good start to the week food wise, this first recipe I've cooked from Mosley's The Blood Sugar Diet coincided with good news. Consequently, while the tandoori lamb chops with apple salad recipe was both healthy and low calorie, it was preceded by a celebratory bottle of white wine and a bag of pretzels.

More work to be done on the will power and resolve front then, but I can vouch for a tasty supper though.
