My Calorie Counting Reverse Diet Diary ...

I thought I would start a new diary now that I am calorie counting, but Im doing it with a difference where I eat in 'reverse'. I am going to have 1300 cals a day on a non active day and I will have 1500 cals on an active day. These cals will be broken down as follows....

Breakfast - 9am - 500 cals - a higher carb content meal.

Snack - 11am - 100 cals - banana usually

Lunch - 1pm - 300 cals - low fat & lower carbs

Snack - 3pm - 100 cals

Dinner - 5pm - 200 cals - low fat and minimal carbs

Snack - 7pm - 100 cals

Then on an active day I will add the extra 200 cals in. As you can see, I eat every 2 hours. This helps keep cravings at bay, stops me over eating and helps space my cals out as I need them. I also drink a glass of water or low cal squash with everything I eat which keeps me hydrated.

Exercise is needing some work! I have reinstated my gym membership as of 1st March so I will start my swimming back up and will go at least 2 x a week and then I will re-start my gym sessions which I hope will be 3 x week. I also use wii fit but thats more for fun and because Im competitive against my OH :D:D:D

Iv taken some 'before' photos so hopefully Il get brave one day and upload them, maybe when Iv shed a bit first :D

Im feeling really positive about this plan and really hope this is what I will settle with :D Im currently on day 2 and I do feel great, Iv had no hunger or cravings and Iv stuck to the plan, so its all good :D:D x

hi, well the reverse diet does exist but it involves having your dinner for breakfast, which i really wouldnt be able to do and i dont think it calorie counts. So what iv done is combined calorie counting with how i use my calories :D its quite logical when i think about it and im hoping for some good results :D I will definately keep my diary updated so u can all see how i get on.

thank u very much for reading the start of my diary and i hope your having a good journey too :D x

Thank u xx my OH cant believe i can eat as often as i do! but being on 1300 - 1500 cals and only 12g of fat as an average, its got to give results!! :confused: The principle of eating every 2 hrs is definately keeping me from snacking, craving, over eating and iv no hunger at all :D Il add some typical days menus to show u what i am eating ;)

i totally forgot its half term! :eek: xx

So here i am on day 3 and everything is going to plan so far, Im totally loving this plan too!

my menu for today is..

B - i had a tin of tomato soup with 2 slices of thick bread and a medium banana and 1/4 pint skimmed milk - 500 cals.....not everyones idea of breakfast i know, but i love it!

snack - lge orange - 70 cals

lunch - 65g cheerios with 1/4 pint skimmed milk - 300 cals

snack - weightwatchers 50 cal yoghurt with a small apple - 100 cals

dinner - 195g muller light yoghurt with 1 apple and 1 pear sliced - 200 cals

snack - cadbury highlights hot chocolate with dash of skimmed milk - 100 cals

iv also got 1/4 pint skimmed milk to use in there somewhere for coffee. total cals 1257 total fat 9g

I would usually have some veg or salad in here somewhere but there is alot of fruit today. Its surprising how well this food distribution works!! I just hope its working weightloss wise....roll on saturday....if i can stay off the scales that long!!! x

This looks really interesting and I can see why it should work. Here's hoping for a fab loss for you :)

How's your protein intake overall?

Thank u!! my protein for today is 55g and yesterday was 79g.....i did google this the other day to see what i should be aiming for but couldnt find the answer...any ideas?? i do usually have some protein in form of beans,ham or chicken but todays menu dont have any ...oops! Carb content tends to be in the 200g region. i use a site called food focus as it calculates everything for me and i can play around with quantities to make it fit my requirements so it works out really well :D x
