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….



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….



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.



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 🙂



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.



Catching up with Calories

Posted on

Welp today was my attempt to get back into healthy eating after several days of shall we say “accidents”? I think that’s one of the difficult things to do, especially on a friday when I have a feeling I may either end up drinking or engulfing chocolate…

I’m done eating for today and with the cupcake situation now under control (distributed amongst everyone who won’t give me any back) I only have one cupcake left. I’m not eating it. I’m sick of the sight and taste of them now. Let me see what did I eat.


Breakfast: (260kcal)

Toast and (Homemade) Strawberry Jam = 260kcalories


Lunch: (390kcal)

Small Sushi Box  = 300kcal

Dried Pineapple = 90kcal


Dinner: (600kcal)

Lasagne = 400kcal

Small chips = 200kcal


Dessert: (10kcal)

Weightwatchers Jelly = 10kcal


Total: 1160kcals

Given that I’m trying to eat around 1000kcalories a day due to my low (1400kcalorie) metabolism I’d say today was pretty good 🙂

Hey up weekend, I’m bouncing back 🙂
