New Diet from Scotland helps millions lose weight. Maybe.



Scotland has one of the highest rates of heart disease in the world. Apparently. Excuse me whilst I put out my fag, put the top back on my Scotch and think about that. Musing over a breakfast I ate every morning when in the highlands I can’t think why. Can I introduce you to the tattie scone aka the potato scone. A particular favourite of mine as part of the heart attack on a plate breakfast.

Roll out your tatties, with flour & an egg.

Using mashed potatoes from the previous night, a sprinkling of flour and an egg mix it up, roll it out and cook on a girdle.

This is a girdle too - Scots style.

 No not a 24 hour girdle one of these flat metal plates. Once they are turning into a lovely golden brown, flip it cook on the other side then slide it onto your plate and surround with the following.

Black pud, white pud & butchers sausages
Butchers bacon & grilled sweet tomatoes
Mushrooms - cos you are a funghi
Potato Scones ready to rock & roll
Pop in a poached egg on toast and Bob's your chubby uncle. Nice.

Now how is the diet? The truth is you scoff this lot and you have no room for lunch so you wait until evening to have your next meal. So in reality it is a diet. Where you replace one meal with being so full from your last you can’t force anything down. This  is Dr. Craig – with no qualifications whatsoever – (much like Gillian McKeith I hear) over and out.
