    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!!

    Re beansprouts - think there's a bit of a risk of Salmonella or something similiar!!:eek:

    Suppose it's up to personal choice!!

    Good luck:D

    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....:)

    Lunch - 4 rashers bacon, all fat removed, griddled on wholemeal bread (HEB), 1 dry fried egg, 1 tsp ketchup (0.5), melon chunks
    Tea - chicken salad, 1tbsp heinz light salad cream (1.5), melon

    Snacks - Skimmed milk (HEA x 2)used with porridge, and tea x several! Skinny cow lolly (4.5), banana, NAS squash

    Syns for day = 7

    Feeling quite happy right now!

    My first EE day - feeling wobbly!

    Friday - working til midnight so thought an EE day would be good so I can do a pasta supper. I posted elsewhere yesterday that I worried about not having my second B choice (which is usually alpen light bars) and despite having my breakfast much later today, and having just had my lunch, I feel very wobbly. Does anyone else get that with their EE days? Think my attempt may be short lived ! :rolleyes:


    Breakfast - porridge with 1 tsp jam (1)
    Lunch - bacon (dry fried), eggs, half tin beans, tomatoes, mushrooms, 1 tsp brown sauce (1), ML yoghurt
    Tea - pasta with tomatoes, peppers, mushrooms, prawns, garlic. ML yoghurt

    Snacks - milk (A) for porridge and tea x 2, Baked crisps 25g (5),
    1.5L NAS

    Total syns = 7

    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!

    Lunch - salmon salad, 1tbsp Light Salad cream (1.5), ML
    Tea - ?
    Snacks - banana, melon, ML, Baked Crisps 25g (5), milk for porridge and tea x 3 (A)
