For the last 8 days I have been joining my wife in the Mosely 800 calorie diet. She has trouble getting her weight down & I thought the company would help. It is surprisingly filling, and of course I am losing weight.

This could be a problem, because when you lose weight you get weaker. So far so good, because I am making regulated lift increases following the covid lockdown.

One interesting thing in the book is a reference to the MATADOR diet, which enables fat loss while maintaining your muscle mass.
It is like something I read in Muscle Media ages ago that I never got around to trying. So I will give this a go anon.

"Nice work. Is your area getting ready for warm weather this time of year. It will soon be fall here, starting to cool down.
BrooklynJerry "

Hi Jerry. Days are getting longer and warm now. We have had a cold, wet winter. Wet is good, all my rainwater tanks are full and the country’s crops are thriving, in a continent ever liable to drought.
Harvesting might be a problem - the citizens of certain states ignored social distancing & quarantine lockdowns, so they have rife virous infections & deaths (Like USA ?) So our borders are closed to them, which will make access to harvesters problematic.
The bluddy Chinese are arresting our citizens without charge & putting a 200% tarrif on our wine and barley, falsely accusing us of dumping. Retaliating because we called for an independent enquiry into corona origins.
As for wines, the Chinese prefer ours to their own poor product, so i guess their citizens will pay the tarrif.
