Dizzie's food diary - comments welcome!

Hello, day 1, an original day.

Most of my days will be original because I like my protein!! Unfortunately I don't have much imagination and as I cook for one I tend to have much the same!! I suppose I will change when I am bored!

Breakfast - grapefruit, porridge (heb)with Berries
Lunch - WW Salmon in lemon mayonaise Salad (2 syns)
Tea - Turkey stir fry with extra beansprout and garlic and soy sauce, cooked with Frylight
Snacks - 2 x babybel (HEA) 2 x Alpen light (HEB) milk for porridge and 2 x tea (HEA), crabsticks, banana, Del Monte iced smoothie (4 syns)
Water / NAS squash - 2litres.

Total 6 syns

BTW on the pack of Beansprouts I bought it says not to be eaten raw? What is that all about? I remember eating loads of them raw in the past!

Wont get too exciting, but if you ever have any comments to help, I'll be very pleased to receive them!!

Another 4-MN shift, so my diary is exactly the same as yesterday , other than Syns which I've listed:

Heinz Light Salad cream 1tbsp = 1.5
French Fries multipack pack = 4.5 (I think!!)
Total = 6 syns


Hippety Hop!
Hi DizzyDawnie, Well done on getting the diary started and making a start on losing the weight..
Never mind about having the same every day as long as it works for you. Only thing you may find is that you need to change it now and then to keep your metabolic system going as it will get so you STS for a while. Also taking into consideration that of having various vitamin content which is essential but you certainly seem to be covering that one okay.

All the best to you as you continue with your endeavour....Take care....:)
Thanks Emmaline :D

Good advice again which I shall heed! In fact I am going to try to find some time over the weekend to trawl through diaries to try to get some variation ideas!!

Thursday - wipe out - was a huge day of celebration which included lots of champagne, and something I have been waiting for for 3 years, so there was no way I wasn't going to!! LOL! And I haven't beaten myself up about it today either so I guess that is good! :angel09:

Straight back on track today.

Your diary makes interesting reading as it's all stuff I like and I tend to snack a lot as well. The honey roast salmon sounds yum!
thanks, I enjoy it but wonder about being stuck in a rut!! :)

The salmon is gorgeous - from Morrisons 2 packs for a fiver, which I can generally make last 3 days so don't feel too guilty! They also do a chilli flake one which is lovely too, but that is 1 point per pack!

Wednesday - Green day

Breakfast - porridge (B) and berries
Lunch - Baked beans on toast (B) with 2 x frylighted eggs, ML yoghurt
Tea - in work and don't have any pasta packets like I thought so pasta with pesto (1 tbsp) (4.5syns) with grated cheese (1 tbsp) (A), ML, melon

Snacks - skimmed milk for porridge and cups of tea x 3 (A), banana, 25g pack Baked crisps (5), 1.5L NAS, 40ml Baileys when I got home to celebrate the end of a 10 day run at work!! (6)
