**@@***Helbels Mostly EE Food Diary **@@***

Hi all

I have done SW in the past, but only ever done Original or Green Days. Today is first ever day starting EE, so thought I'd start a food diary in case anyone spots me doing anything inappropriate!

Breakfast: Scrambled egg made with skimmed milk (HEXA), Bacon Medallions, Tinned Tomatoes, Wholemeal Roll (HEXB + 1.5 syns as it weighed 70g), 1 tbsp Ketchup (1 syns).

Mid Morning Snack: Sainsbury's basics choc ice (4.5 syns)

Lunch: Sweet & Sour Mug Shot, Raspberries, Meringue Nest (2.5 syns) and Anchor Light Squirty cream (1 syn)

Afternoon snack: More raspberries with Anchor Light Cream (1 syn) & 2 x Muller Lights.

Dinner: Very lean beef, jacket potato, cottage cheese and stir fry veg.

Pudding: Rhubarb 198g (0.5 syns) if I am still hungry.

Hi there! Just a quick message - 1 tbsp of ketchup is only 1 syn hun, and unless you eat the rhubarb raw it would need to be synned. Also, did you weigh the roll? It needs to be 57g for a HexB. Other than that it looks good to me! :D xxx
Yes, the roll I did weigh and allowed for the syns but forgot to put it on here.

Surely Rhubarb can't be synned? Its listed as superfree, and as its impossible to eat it raw, surely that can't be correct?
Oh ok, Rhubarb is only 0.5 syn for 198g so not the end of the world.
Grrr, I have just been invited to a party tomorrow and the only thing available to eat are monster cornish pasties!

Looks like I'll have to allow 30 syns for it, and then just eat 5 syns a day for the rest of the week. Why oh why do these things always happen when you start a diet?!!!
Ok, having read about Flexible Syns online today, I have decided to call today a write off and just get back on plan tomorrow without cutting down on Syns for the rest of the week. I think that way I should stay on track and have a better chance doing it that way.
Today's food diary - 24/5/10

Ok back on track today, doing EE:

Breakfast - Muller Light & 1 Alpen Light (half a HEXB)

Midmorning snack: Another Muller Light and another Alpen light (other half of HEXB)

Lunch: Salad of tomato, radish & cucumber, 1 sachet Ainsley Harriott Spice Sensation Couscous (1 syn)

Evening Snack (always starving when I get in from work and will pick if I don't eat then): Some leftover lean beef, 198g rhubarb, stewed with Splenda and water(1/2 syn), Meringue Nest (2.5 syns) and a Muller Light.

HEXA is skimmed milk which I've had in tea all day.:)

Hi there,
Your menus look good.
I see you're using anchor light aerosol cream, 2 syns for 24g, how much does 24g represent?
I would quite like to buy some to turn fruit into a nice treat but I wouldn't if 24g is a tiny amount...
It's quite a generous amount - I pop my bowl on the scales and squirt it in directly onto my fruit, that way I know I've measured right.
Here we go again, the results of the Norwegian jury (only joking - it's my food diary again!)....

Hey I am reading!

I am interested in EE. I did try it and lost 4lb in my first week, 3lb in the second, but then it slowed right down to a stop!! So I am now on red/green days. I don't think I was eating enough superfree foods. Thanks for some really fab ideas! Good luck!!
