    Gluttonous gourmet turns fit foodie- My Diary

    Hello everyone

    I am Breaking Flab, and I am fat.

    I have also had the worst history of yo-yo dieting, having probably lost and gained my bodyweight many times over in the past 18 or so years- I have tried absolutely every diet & fad under the sun, pills, fasting, hypnosis- everything. I lost over 10 stones at one point but developed eating problems due to subsisting on under 700 cals a day. Needless to say once I conquered those demons the weight flew back on.

    The thing is I understand nutrition, I know allllll about daily requirements, calories etc. Cooking and baking is my favourite hobby and I am good at it! (Sorry to toot my own horn). So why on earth am I constantly yo-yoing up and down?

    I have recently turned 30 and found myself close to my heaviest ever weight again
    I am devestated and disgusted with myself. Having Endometriosis too makes it harder to exercise as I am often in chronic pain and on strong meds but I am no longer going to use that excuse. I have to do this now as I would like to try for a baby in the next year or so and would like to be in the best health possible.

    So- here I am! If you have read this far and would like to follow my diary and progress please do I like to be as adventurous as possible (money and time permitting) and love making Indian, mexican, thai etc....

    Oh, and by the way I have over 9 stones to lose, so I may be here a while, lol!

    Day 8- Monday 13 January 2014

    Weigh in day
    : Weight lost for week 1: 10 pounds The first week is always the kindest!! Despite having 2 steak dinners in 2 days, I still managed a great loss. This week will be tougher, as the body usually likes to hold onto the pounds in week 2 (according to the wisdom of Bob Harper on the biggest loser USA.....).

    You will have seen- I'm not a breakfast person. I do make myself eat something first thing, even if it is only a piece of fruit but I am slowly training myself to boost my morning appetite. I went over 15 years with not having anything in the morning so baby steps! I am far more inclined to make a nice brunch dish on a weekend though.

    Breakfast: 1 pear, 2 cups of coffee (Black no sugar).

    Lunch: 1 x pack batchelors mexican rice, chopped cucumber, tomato, red onion. Bernard Matthews turkey breast chunks, 3 tbsp sweetcorn.

    Dinner: 1 oven baked cod fillet with lemon juice, 1 portion syn free chips, 1 can mushy peas, 1 tbsp tomato ketchup (1 syn), 2 x slices Nimble wholemeal bread (HEX b).

    Snacks: 2 x satsumas

    Well done on your loss - I always lose big in the first week as well. It really keeps you motivated! (And you feel a bit smug about it for a few days) Subscribing to see your recipes - would be interested to see recipes when you make mexcian food - i'm drooling at the thought of guacamole, rice and salsa!

    Day 10- Tuesday 15 January 2014

    Breakfast:
    Pineapple & Mango slices dipped in a weight watchers coconut greek yoghurt. 2 x coffees, black no sugar.

    Lunch: Leftover risotto from last night with rocket.

    Snack: 2 x satusumas

    Dinner: Green Minestrone Soup:

    (I made this up, so the measurements are approximate)

    1 can broad beans
    Veg stock
    1 x bag of shredded greens or spinach
    1 x chopped leek
    1 small can of peas
    3 x garlic cloves, crushed
    A couple of handfuls of small soup pasta, or chopped up dried spaghetti
    2 tbsp green pesto
    Salt & Black Pepper
    Shredded basil

    N.B add any green veggies you like- broccoli, asparagus, kale, spring onions, peppers, sprouts etc will all work well. If you do not have broad beans then any canned bean (ie: Cannelini, soy, haricot) will work well

    - Sautee the Leek and garlic in spray oil until softened, add the stock and seasoning and bring to a simmer. Add the pasta and broad beans and simmer for 10 mins.

    - Add the shredded cabbage/spinach and pesto and simmer for a further 5 mins.

    - Check seasoning and adjust if need be, add the shredded basil & serve.

    I'm having mine with 2 x wholemeal warburton bread (HEX b) and 1 tbsp parmesan scattered over the top (HEX a).
