There are those of you who are saying that the Diet of Diets is not an original diet and that it is actually based on the big new fad in losing weight - the two-meal day. And I'll concede you're right. Fitness guru Max Lowery is the poster boy for the two-meal day, but everyone from Brian O'Driscoll to 5:2 guru Dr Michael Mosley practises this style of eating. It also obviously contains the notion of intermittent fasting. For those of us who think the 5:2 version of intermittent fasting is a bit extreme, this is a more leisurely version.

In my defence, the Diet of Diets is original to me. In that I am taking the basic idea, which my lawyers stress I should point out, nobody actually owns, and I am working around it for my life. The idea of the two-meal day, breakfast being the handiest meal to skip, is just the basis for the Diet of Diets. But I like to think that as I go I am building a philosophy around it.

One of the main things I am coming to understand is that life gets in the way and you have to let life get in the way.
