Marmaduke's food diary

Today is my first day doing slimming world, I though a food diary might help keep me motivated. I'm planning on doing extra easy as it's the easiest to get my head around but I don't eat much meat so might be better switching to green when I get my head around it.


2 x weetabix with hot water & skimmed milk & granulated sweener


Chicken & mushroom pasta n sauce with 1 laughing cow extra light


sweet & sour noodle mug shot
laughing cow extra light
2 x apples, grapes


sw chips, egg, quorn sausages, beans, tiny bit of ketchup


tea, sugarfree squash

I think I've eaten quite a lot today, been thinking about food a lot but hopefully I'll get used to it. The only syns I've had are the little bit of ketchup. I like a drink on weekends so I'm planning on not using too many syns during the week.

I'm planning splitting my healthy extra a's using half the skimmed milk allowance and half the cheese allowance on laughing cow extra lights which my consultant said was ok to do. My healthy extra b will usually be weetabix as I'm a bit all or nothing with bread x

Hi sorry to butt in ,but i see you like mugshots and just wanted to share,a really filling lunch is a mushot with 2 small slices wholemeal toast ( HEXB) with laughing cow on it!! i know when i was starting out i was grateful for all suggestions!!


Strutting her stuff
Hi! From what I can see you're pretty much doing green anyway so why not go for that. You'll get an extra HEA and HEB! On your second day you could have taken bacon as your other HEB. I'm veggie and do green all the time so if you have any questions just ask. You only really benefit from EE if you're going to be having meat or fish regularly - more than once a day. :)
Thanks for the tips, the mugshot idea sounds lovely thanks :)

Yes I am basically doing green aren't I, I'm not much of a meat eater so maybe I should just do green days and then the ocassional extra easy when needed.

On saturday I did end up going out and having quite a few vodkas so I'm not going to work out the syns but I'm sure it was over 30 so I'll just write that off!

Tonight is my first weigh in so I'm trying not to go mad today, meeting is at 6 tonight, which is around the time I'd normally have tea so I will try to eat afterwards but I will have a big snack this afternoon to keep me going :)
Well I must be doing something right as I have lost 6 and a half pounds at my first weigh in tonight. Can't tell you all how happy I am at the moment. It really gives me the motivation to carry on with it, I didn't expect such a big loss but I have been good (apart from my night out!)

Just had a lovely tea of sw chips, quorn chicken burger and beans and might treat myself to a glass of wine or two!
Well done!!! i was just reading your food diary for a bit of inspiration as im sat feeling hungry - not actual hungry - bored hungry... but congratulations on a great loss
Thanks both, I'm so happy !

mullerlight, fruit, I have been really fancying some chocolate the last day or 2 so I'm going to treat myself to a curly wurly tonight if I still want it.

I made a lovely quiche last night, I really can't believe how yummy it is. I'm pleased I made it too as it's my son's birthday on the weekend and we are having a little get together for family and friends and I was looking for something sw friendly and yummy to make for me and my sister who is also doing sw. In case anyone is interested, this is how I made it:

Made up pasta n sauce - (cheese, leek and ham flavour but sure it would be nice with others) poured this into bottom of dish,
Chopped up and gently fried in frylite spring onions, mushrooms and ham and placed on top of pasta,
Whisked 3 eggs with 150g very low fat cottage cheese and poured the mixture over top of pasta/veg and then placed chopped cherry tomatoes on the top
placed in hot oven for about 35 mins

I just checked and the quiche is only 1 syn for the whole thing, woohooo!

sw pasta quiche, hard boiled egg, apple, mullerlight, hi fi bar (he b)


Not sure yet but thinking maybe sw chips, quorn chicken style burger and beans

I really enjoyed my curly wurly last night, it was the first bit of choccie I've had since starting and it was lovely! I have some more there so I might have another one tonight, if not I'll probably have a glass of wine (about 6 syns)

he a is milk in my tea/coffee
I only ended up having half a curly wurly last night (3 syns) and no quorn burger just home made potato wedges and beans. I thought it was wise to save some syns for this weekend.

Well this weekend is going to be a challenge for me I think, it's my son's birthday and we are taking him shopping to choose his birthday present today and he wants to go to mcdonalds or kfc so my plan is to have something big to eat before going and then hopefully I will just do some shopping while they are eating! I think it would be just too tempting if I watch them eat!

Then tonight I'm going out with some friends. I'm not too worried about the drinking as I had quite a few last weekend and still had a great loss and I haven't used too many syns in the week so I'll just make sure I stick to wine or vodka and avoid the kebab shop on the way home!

Then tomorrow it's my sons party, which I'm doing at home. So lots of party food to tempt me but I'm going to do a few sw friendly things (quiche etc) so that I have something to nibble on.


big bowl of fruit (banana, pineapple and apple)


tesco couscous (1 syn) with salad and dressing (1 syn) hard boiled egg


grilled chicken salad from mcdonalds without dressing (2 syns)


hifi bar (heb), fruit, mugshot

milk in my tea/coffee (hea)

drinks - vodka and wine (lots of syns!)

this was my sons party so I spent a lot of time making party food but I managed not to pick at any naughty stuff at all.

I didn't have proper meals today but this is what I ended up eating:

sw quiche (1 syn)
mini quorn sausages - not sure of the syns but will be very low if any
bbq quorn fillets - again not sure of syns
hard boiled egg
pickled onion and pineapple
quorn ham
laughing cow light triangles (he)

and ended up having a few more wines mixed with diet lemonade
