    Diet overhaul here I come

    Whenever I do a diet, I always seem to think it's okay to eat the same things but a lot less of them. This has led me to several years of 'yo-yo' dieting. I've realised now I need to stop and change my diet rather than losing a stone and putting it back on when I go back to eating lots of crap. Now I am determined to lose this extra two stone I've been carrying for far too long for good. One of my big aims is to eat more of my five a day, as this is something I'm terrible for keeping up with. I loathe most vegetables so the only way I can really keep this intake up is through fruit and fruit snacks/juices/smoothies which are worth one or two of your five a day. Today will not be a typical day by no means. I woke up late and so haven't eaten a lot. Plus, the day before I ate a big takeaway, so today I haven't been hungry. So I'm treating today as a detox day and I'll start eating properly tomorrow. 541 for my calorie intake today.


    Food

    2 slices of oatilicious bread: 200 cals.
    Heinz squeeze and stir tomato soup: 144 cals.
    Liberte strawberry yogurt: 79 cals.
    Fun size apple: 50 cals.
    Pineapple chunks pot: 60 cals.

    Drinks

    Can of sugar free Red Bull: 8 cals.
    1 litre of water.

    Exercise

    About two and a half hours of walking.


    3 of 5 a day consumed.

    Thank you both! Do you have diaries? I joined up to this a while ago but I haven't really used it so I thought it might be time to. I have roughly two stone to lose. My aim is by mid July when I have my graduation. Hope that's achievable!

    Yesterday wasn't too horrific but it wasn't the best either. A lot of cheese and none of my five a day... but I was busy all day, if that's an excuse. Woops! A total of 1415 calories for today. I suppose I probably burned a few with the walking but I won't think about that too much and see it as an extra boost to the weight loss. In the past, I've used increased exercise intake as an excuse to eat more, and although it's important to exercise I think I've probably used it as too much of a crutch when on diets in the past! Thanks again for your responses. Hope your days were okay.

    Thank you! Yeah, I found yours, and your food looks great. How did dinner out go? My day hasn't gone bad so far. I'll update properly later. I've been into town today and stocked up on Slim-fast as I've decided to make this a random mixture of calorie counting/healthy eating/meal replacement. Bit of a hotchpotch of a diet really! I even got a fancy shaker to do the shakes up in. x

    Okay, so here is my diary for today! I got a bit impatient to write it up but I don't think I've finished yet. I think I'll have some grapes and an apple. I'll add them on when I've had them. I can't recommend the Goodness kid's pizzas enough. I'm such a massive pizza fan (I've been known to eat a full 16" pizza before), so to still be able to have a little pizza within calories is great. They come in a twin pack and they're in the fresh foods bit of Tesco, where the ready meals etc are. They have reduced fat cheese, which is probably why the calorie count is so low. The liberte yogurts are also great for the calories - 0% fat too. I must sound like I'm plugging these products! Anyway, yeah, not a bad day I think. Edit: Final today for today was 1434 calories. It's remarkable how quickly the calories stack up, thinking about it. It felt like I barely ate anything today, and yet I ate that much. Oh well. I suppose some of those calories were from drinks too.


    Food


    Zugo's grilled chicken and mozzarella panini: 371 calories.
    Tesco Goodness kid's cheese and tomato pizza: 297 calories.
    Liberte strawberry yogurt: 79 calories.
    Raspberry fruit school bar: 67 calories.
    Half of a Tesco chicken and stuffing sandwich (malted bread): 235 calories.
    Handful of green seedless grapes: 70 calories.
    Fun size red apple: 50 calories.

    Drinks

    Glass bottle of Coca-Cola: 139 calories.
    Tesco tropical fruit juice: 125 calories.
    Tesco sugar free lemonade: 3 calories.

    Exercise

    Roughly two hours of walking.

    Yep, it's not bad. Probably not as good as your 500 calorie Pizza Hut, though! Oh god, takeaway pizza... always my downfall. That's a lot! Makes you realise how many calories there can be in food. The paninis are fab. Probably not the best thing in the world calorie/nutritional content wise but I really like them. They're 1.10 in Tesco at the minute and you stick them in the microwave for a couple of minutes and you're done. x

    1433 for today's calorie intake. I seem to be averaging about 1400 so I think I'll try and stick to this each day. Perhaps I should be eating less but I think I'm probably burning about 200 calories a day through walking so my net calorie intake should be around 1200. This is probably most sustainable for me and although it probably means it'll be a slower rate of loss I'd rather do this than an extreme diet.

    Hi popping in to subscribe I'm coming over from SW, which I failed at miserably and I lost 3 stone with CC a few years ago for my wedding (sadly all back now, boo!) so giving it another shot.
    At 1248 today (so far), I don't really do dead on numbers, more of a range. I try not to go below 1150 (very rarely happens lol) and I don't go above 1500 so I always at least have a little deficit.
    Good luck and look forward to following your journey :wave: x

    Hi! Thank you for subscribing. I couldn't deal with SW/WW as I can't be bothered to point things and stuff. Calorie Counting is definitely my favourite choice! Have you got a diary at all? x

    I do indeedy, but it's over on the SW page as that's where i started, it's mostly just waffle but you are welcome to pop over
    Well done for putting your hands up and drawing a line though, its far too easy (at least for me anyways) to just put my head in the sand!
    Those Chicken thingys sound so yummy though, i could not eat all day so i could have that hehe x
