I'm starting a new diary as I've been on 810 now for a couple of weeks and I'm finding more and more ways to expand on the allowances in terms of recipes and snacks!
I think it's quite neglected as part of the CWLP and I intend to change that!!
Let me tell you about myself. I started at 13 stone and want to lose at least 2 stone. I've lost 11 pounds so far. I'm 5 foot 10 so I carry the weight well but I have a spare tire and a half around my middle for sure!
I'm loving the CD. It's the first real diet that I've stuck to and the first time I've properly lost weight!
Anyhow my posts will be mainly concentrating on what I had for my protein and other observations (mainly what food I tried to dodge at work!).
Today I made a fabulous roasted marrow stuffed with chilli. I had the recipe in one if my low fat bbc good food coolbooks but it used butternut squash and beef mince. I made it before starting CD and OMG it tasted unreal! So I thought I would 810-ify it and voila! I've posted the recipe in the 810 recipes thread (see stickies).
I'm a bit confused though as we're only supposed to have a 200kcal meal but we're allowed 245g of turkey breast (with no skin/fat) which has over 200kcals in itself so not very clear!
Anyway, I've taken to snacking on raw prawns. Tesco does these packs of organic big prawns 2 for £5 which enough for 4 portions (1 per day) and they are lovely. Still missing my favourite crisps but they'll do. There was a huge pack of kettle chips at work today and guess what? I put one in my mouth, chewed a bit then promptly spat it out in the bin! Gross I know, but don't want to go off plan right now. Also dodged a box of brownies and bag of rhubarb custards! Torture!!
So that's it for today. I'm off to bed soon. I'm planning on having chicken kebabs with yoghurt and cucumber dip tomorrow night so looking forward to those already!
I'm stuffed anyway. I finished tonight with a mint choc bar which I accidentally froze rock solid but it made it last longer! It tasted a bit weird and stale but made a nice change!
Good night all! Stay strong! Xxx
