Louisa's 'No more Cheating' Food Diary

My WI day is on a Thursday (i.e tomorrow) and i've got a sneaky feeling I may have put on/sts (this may be partly due to the fact I keep weighing myself at home grrr!). Anyway I think I have been fairly diligent with sticking to the diet so Im not sure where im going wrong. I thought I'd record what Im eating/drinking here so maybe others can see if Im doing it right. (It also lessens the possibility of me 'cheating' and forgetting to syn stuff). I also have a tendancy to snack later on at night when theres really no need so I'm hoping it will break me out of that habit! So to anyone that may read this any advice is greatly appreciated :rolleyes:
! (Btw Im vegetarian and my consultant advised me to go with the EE plan)
Il be back later today with what Iv eaten ;)!

hi louisa welcome to s/w and minmins i would just say if ur doing ee try and have the 1/3rd superfree veg or salad with ur meal it does make a difference to the weight loss also not sure if low fat cottage cheese is free i think it has to be fat free perhaps someone else will be able to say for sure. good luck x


Pea on legs!
Hi there, well done on your losses so far and good luck for your journey!

I've had a quick look through your food diaries and my only comment is that with the amount of exercise you are doing, I'm not sure you're eating enough.

Also, I know you said your consultant advised EE, but as a veggie, Green days would be much easier for you. I'm not a veggie now (was for 15 years), but I do still eat lots of veggie meals and green days offer me lots more variety. You get 2xHEAs and 2xHEBs and, as a veggie, you will still be getting loads of fruit and veg in your diet...

Just something to think about...!

Have a good week x
Hey thanks for the feedback :D Iv checked the cottage cheese on the website and it says its free so i think im ok :p I did wonder about the green day and im pretty sure I could manage 2 hexb's but not sure about the hexa's. I have been hungrier with all the exercise which is why ive been snacking on a lot more fruit even when the things im really craving are crisps, biscuits and chocolate :( bad i know! The depressing thing about the gym as well is that I feel like im burning off loads of calories on those machines and they say ive only done 100! Better than sitting on my ass all day I suppose :p

The problem with biscuits is I get a taste for them and one is never enough :(
hi louisa how on earth can u eat scan bran i bought some this week tasted like cardboard then when i was trying to chew it was like i had sawdust in my mouth had to have a drink of water to get rid of it think i will have to use them in a cake do you cook with them? have a good weekend x
Yea they dont taste much like food ^^ but im trying to avoid too much bread and ive heard it boosts weight loss. I try and mask it with other foods. Im going to try and make a carrot and ginger cake with it soon but im always wary about microwaving things to cook as they can taste nasty sometimes :p guess it cant get much worse!

Absolutly shattered today. Been doing housework/gardening most of the day and have now got a lovely burnt red face!
I seriously need to work on my portion control as well. Think i need to invest in smaller plates and not pile food on so high...
Ok i was going to cheat and not add these syns and hope exercise would cancel it out :p But im going to be honest and say I had 2 more biscuits last night :( which is an extra 7 syns! Boooo!
