Which is why we are trying a few recipes from Tom Kerridge's Dopamine Diet book this season. It is designed around substantial, but carb-free, food which helps you feel great without resorting to stodgy comfort food.
Tom Kerridge has two Michelin stars for his successful Hand and Flowers 'gastro-pub’ and is a successful TV chef too, so you know he would design an excellent diet for himself when he decided to lose weight. The best thing is the diet is so big on flavour it does not leave you feeling deprived!
So far, we have tried the chicken mince and coconut curry recipe, the pepperoni pizza omelette and the tomato chorizo and almond salad. It has all been satisfying and hearty fare. Looking forward to trying his take on shepherd’s pie and spicy chilli and green beans!
There are a few bits of 'cheffy prep', but all worth it for the satisfying flavours. Ingredients lists are versatile and easily adapted to suit what is in the kitchen cupboards. If you want to feel more active and healthier and start shedding some pounds even though the weather is still unseasonably cold for salads, this diet seems to do the trick.
