OddSock's Veggie (Now Vegan) Food Diary
I thought I'd join in and start posting my food diary on here- I've been jotting it down in a notepad but I think it's good motivation to post it in a public domain! Here's what I've had/plan to have today:
Breakfast- Fat-free fromage frais with fruit
Lunch- Poached egg and beans
Snack- Fat-free yogurt, 4 Quorn deli slices with fat-free cottage cheese
Tea- Quorn fillet, carrots, peas, small amount of mash made with 2tsp Vitalite (3 syns)
Supper- 2 slices wholemeal toast (HEXB) and 2 Dairylea Light triangles (HEXA)
Snacks- Fun size Milky Way (3.5 syns), Quavers (4.5 syns)
Total syns- 11
Exercise- 30 mins dog walking
Quite proud of myself today!

I know, when I read it back it didn't seem like all that much, which surprised me! Haha. But I'm not too much of a big eater to be honest, and I haven't felt hungry or anything. One of my worst eating habits pre-Slimming World was skipping meals, so I'm trying to condition myself to eat more regularly. It's weird that I'm eating more than I used to and losing weight!
That's one of the things that attracted me to SW, my friend joined up and I couldn't believe the amount of free food that's allowed! I've sometimes found that I haven't been able to finish a meal because I just got too full- the other day I had a Quorn fillet, jacket potato with fat-free cottage cheese and a massive pile of salad, all free food and I couldn't even finish it all. It barely feels like a diet at all!
*EDIT* Stayed up late watching wrestling avec mon frere (yes, wrestling!) and had 2x fat-free yogurts. Hurray for syn-free snacking!
And here's today's food diary, subject to edit as it's only a proposed diary so far!
Breakfast- Total 0% Greek yogurt with loads of strawberries
Lunch- Poached eggs and wilted spinach on a small bread roll (HEXB)
Tea- Pasta in tomato sauce with cheese from HEXA allowance
Snacks- Alpen Light bar (3.5 syns), fruit, Curly Wurly (6 syns), Quavers (4.5 syns)
Total syns- 14
I did pretty well with my eating today, however I may have ruined things slightly as I had a girls' night out to the cinema and had a couple of sneaky cocktails. Rather than dwell on it, I shall just be extra good this week to compensate!

You need to increase your veg/fruit intake for EE to give you better results.
Thank you for the advice I do generally pile my plates with salad at teatime, and when I've listed fruit as a snack I meant a huge bowl of pineapple, strawberries and melon, but I haven't had chance to go shopping for a couple of days so my salad drawer is looking decidedly bare today, haha! Made my bolognese sauce with a tin of tomatoes and some veg so I've probably just about scraped together my 5 a day today!
Breakfast- Banana (I ate on the run)
Lunch- Hard-boiled eggs on 2 slices wholemeal toast (HEXB), banana, apple
Tea- Quorn burger, jacket potato with cottage cheese and lots of salad, slice of garlic bread (4 syns based on the calories), fruit salad (melon, pineapple, kiwi)
Snacks- Fat-free yogurt, fruit salad, mini eclair (7.5 syns based on the calories)
Total syns- 11.5

I felt really ill this morning, hence the slightly unconventional start to the day...
Lunch- 2 Weetabix with milk (HEXA and HEXB) and chopped banana
Tea- Quorn bolognese (home-made) with wholewheat spaghetti, tiny piece of baked cheesecake (I'm allocating 5 syns because I'm not sure exactly how many it'll be, but it was teensy!), fruit salad (melon, pineapple, kiwi)
Total syns- 5
Zero energy day :(
Breakfast- Banana, 2 hard boiled eggs on granary toast (HEXB), fruit salad
Lunch- Egg and cress sandwich (6 syns for the bread), apple
Snack- Crunchie (9 syns)- I was out for a job interview earlier and felt really weak and dizzy all of a sudden, so I had a sugar boost
Tea- Quorn fillet, new potatoes, fat-free cottage cheese, lots of salad
Snacks- Lots of fruit, fat-free yogurt
I had a bit of a weird day today- I felt so weak and hungry earlier that I thought I was going to fall over or something, which seemed really strange. Does anyone else ever feel that way? If so, how do you boost your energy levels?
I thought I might have been dehydrated too, but I drank about 2.5l of water today, plus a herbal tea, so I think it's unlikely. I think I might need to be a bit more strict with myself regarding food- on the days when I'm really close to 15 syns I tend to feel like rubbish, so I may just have some syn-free days and stuff myself with fruit and veg to see how I get on!
