Day Three of the Fruit and Veg diet!

Posted on

Today was oddly successful for a day spent primarily in the house. Still no luck in the job front so I really need to get college finance forms done as soon as possible. The plan was to keep on with the fruit and veg diet but I had a few slip ups here and there. Let’s go over them….

 

Breakfast

Tin of Diet Fizzy Juice

Cereal. (230kcal)

Normally I would have stuck to having a pear for breakfast but I settled for half a bowl of cereal and milk because of the diet juice I think. The sweeteners cause sugar cravings and there is a lot of sugar in cereal. Maybe I need to lay off the diet fizzy. As I woke up starving, I veered towards the diet fizzy for a burst of bubbles to fill my tummy and th at’s maybe the problem…

At least there was some milk in the cereal….

 

Snack

Crispbreads and cottage cheese (200kcal)

I woke up late today to my breakfast was late and having lunch at this time would have been detrimental and pointless. So, instead, I had a snack instead of a lunch. It was rather small but meh. Dinner was not long from then.

 

Dinner

Salad, ham, crispbread and cottage cheese – 350kcal (MAX)

Lovely and just the right quantity. I only ever use small plates now and that’s enough to fill me 🙂

 

Supper

Pear – 100kcal

Found myself starving around 10pm and instead of attempting to go to bed I decided to have a pear. I could kill for a takeaway….must RESIST!

One of the tips I find most useful when calorie counting is round up, especially with calories. Since my Base Metabolism Rate is only 1400kcal, I need to eat less than that to lose weight. It’s important to stay around 1000kcalories. As such, if I eat something that is 49kcal, I put it down as 50kcal, if something is 51kcal, I put it down as 100kcal. I try to make sure this doesn’t go over. However, if I eat my jellies, I need to eat at least 6before they are put down as 100kcal. 🙂 I group together. Might be something to try out. I NEVER eat anything I don’t know the caloric content of. No matter HOW chocolatey, crispy, salty, sugary, or tastey it looks.

About shanhime

Well hello there! Whether you’re a newbie to this blog or a regular in need of a quick reminder on what this blog is about (in summary of course) then I couldn’t recommend a better page. Then again I did write this so I’m somewhat biased…. Well, my name is Shan. It’s not my real or full name but it’s a start and given that we’re on the interwebs it’s hardly a place to start giving out personal information. If you want to get fresh with me you can find my facebook and irratate my there. If you’re really lucky, I might even add you as a friend! But no flirting boys! I have a boyfriend :3 I live in the East of Scotland where is it permenantly freezing. On average we have roughly 4 minutes of sun a year and the chances of me spending a day indoors without exercise is high so don’t expect miracles people. At this moment in time I’m 20 years old. For me, this is a sore point, so mentioning this will result in a severe ignoring or a delete of your comment followed by a smack across the back of the head with a wet mop. Those of you insulted by this should probably leave now as I’m not willing to deal with trolls, gremlins or vampire bats. This is site for mature people looking for information, a litte fun and self help, not people who are fighting with their inner child and losing. That is what xbox live is for. :P Of course, I can have a joke. Sometimes people are just not funny. Unlike me. I am permenantly hilarious. On this blog you’ll find a few tips, the occasional recipe and a few personal thoughts I had on products, foods, snacks and techniques as well as some of my own personal moments. Hopefully some of these will be useful to you and you’ll enjoy sharing these experiences. There’s also the comments sections at the bottom for you to share information and ideas with others and me. Isn’t that great? Oh, my facebook is: http://www.facebook.com/theonlyshanchan
