[quote="petra01"]I finally weighed myself and it wasn't as bad as I thought (although not going to share it here). As I expected...a few kg would be good to lose, but even without that, if my cravings go away, I will be happy. I did fine yesterday but realized that I am likely eating way too many nuts. I don't count them but I guess I should starting doing that. A "handful" can be big... How are you feeling on day 4? of Phase 1?[/quote
Sorry i havn`t been able to get on this forum for a couple of days..busy with work and family but i am now nearing the end of day 5 and i have lost 5lb, which is very encouraging! I too have a caffeine addiction my 2 cups quota are used up in the first hour i get up! lol...i am still stuggling to cut down. I also LUV my almonds at snack time and i eat about 15 and then want more so can sympathize with u on that one too. I am feeling great because i dont feel so bloated. I will take u through my basic meal plan
over the past few days....
BREAKFAST: vegetable fittata made in muffin trays with 2 cups coffee (black with one splenda)
SNACK: 15 almonds
LUNCH: can tuna in a greek salad (but i dont eat the feta not for diet reasons just dont like it)
SNACK: 2 slices light cheese or almonds again
DINNER: lean chicken marinaded in a nandos peri peri with large salad...or variations on the meat like lean steak, grilled salmon, or prawns on the barbie
This is what i have been eating with about 4 litres of water and maybe a couple of glasses of coke zero every now and again throughout the day. My down fall is normally night time eating so if i get peckish i have celery sticks with light philly cheese as a night snack.
It is Friday night here in Australia and after a busy week i normally have as i like to call it my" Friday night chill night" which as u guessed it involves a few cold Chardy`s or red wine....IM GONNA STRUGGLE WITH THIS ONE!!!! lol Hope u doing well and will talk soon. Lets hope i stay strong!
