Earlier this year, Rachel Hogg spotted a question on the forum that inspired a blog post I've been wanting to share with you ever since.
With New Year's resolutions in mind, Rachel wrote this:
Diet-wise, I was spurred into action by a comment someone made on the OMS forum: “Are you eating a proper OMS diet (lots of fresh fruit, veg and wholefoods) or are you just eating OMS compliant?”
The comment reminded me of a lodger I had a few years ago who claimed to be vegetarian for health reasons. I had just started the OMS lifestyle, so was expectantly awaiting a master class in a vegetarian cooking. But the ‘vegetarian’ diet appeared to consist of little more than bread, lashings of butter, mountains of cheese and very indulgent sugary yoghurts. She wasn’t actually a fan of veggies – but what she ate was ‘vegetarian compliant’.
Does this resonate with any of you? Hand on heart, how many of you comply with the OMS program in that not only do you avoid the bad foods, but actually embrace the really good ones?
Read Rachel's post and if you recognise yourself in what she writes, perhaps you could make a few Mid Year's resolutions too.
