New year, new diet.
Last year, from September to the end of November, I put my self on a diet of simply calorie counting and going for hour long walks, and within 6 weeks I lost about 16lbs.
When I started I nearly weighed 20 stones, or 280lbs, which was the breaking point.
So now that Christmas and New Years is over, it time to start up my diet again and get down to a weight I can be happy with.
So once week I’m going to weigh myself (Monday’s)to see how much I’ve lost or gained, and every day I plan to make a post about what I’ve eaten and how much it’s cost me calorie wise.
My plan is to eat roughly 1000-1500 calories a day, with plenty of fruits as snacks. My drinks options are water, fruit juice or Pepsi Max since it’s less than 1 calorie per 250ml.
I’ve bought some low calorie bars where are 90-100 calories depending which one I eat (mix it up so I don’t get bored with the flavours). I’ve got plenty of fruit and yoghurts to have with my lunch and for snacks, and naturally my evening meal will be the biggest source of calories.
Tonight’s dinner will by a vegetarian Thai curry, made with Thai curry paste, fish sauce, coconut milk, veg stock and peanut butter, with baby corn, sweat peas, mushrooms, red onion and carrots, served with rice,
I don’t normally have all vegetarian meals, but my dads fiancé comes over on Mondays after her college course so I just make a big meal for us all.
Hopefully doing a daily diary will help me keep focus and loose weight steadily. I’m not aiming to gain muscle mass or muscle tone, just loose fat and feel healthier and better about myself.
