Breakfast :

Coffee
2 egg omelet with spinach and spring onions

Snack :

15 walnut halves

Lunch :

2 large portobello mushrooms filled with low fat cottage cheese and cooked in oven

Snack :

Radishes

Dinner :

Homemade falafel with salad leaves, cucumber, tomato and onion


I found a recipe for flaxseed bread. It looks lovely will post the recipe

If it's fat-free cottage cheese you can count it as dairy, not cheese and also you're allowed 2 servings of cheese a day. This link gives serving sizes for nuts (they're different depending on the nut!)

SB Diet Message Boards • View topic - Phase I Foods to Enjoy - (Updated April 2008)

Oil is 1 tbsp twice a day, avocado 1/3 of an avocado and it counts as an oil. I always have a whole mini avocado, much easier than 1/3 of a big one!

Hiya

Thanks for that info. So what size is the cheese serving? Sorry asking all this Maynie. I hope book comes soon. Does ricotta come out of cheese serving or does it come out of dairy?

My meal plans for today were :

Breakfast :

Soy milk smoothie made with 1 tbsp of PB and vanilla low fat yog

Snack :

Celery sticks filled with rest of PB allowance

Lunch :

2 large boiled eggs with steamed asparagus for dipping (heaven)

Snack :

Grilled quorn fillet with 1 cal spray on it

Dinner :

Avocado and tofu and salad consisting of lambs lettuce, peppers, radishes, cucumber, tomato and onion

Thanks hon! Is it just you and me doing this diet? LOL hahaha

OH well!! The boiled egg with asparagus is honestly heaven!

I have woken up starving today so hope I dont find it hard.

Be back again later with my meal plan - have a great day

Yes, you can eat till you're full. I eat loads! Just had a massive Mexican black bean thing for tea. Yum! I couldn't follow a diet where I wasn't allowed to eat as much as I want :D

That is brill to know. I had no idea. Well today has been a bad day (hangs her head in shame).... it involved a trip to see a friend and a visit to the cinema with our kids and I just was not prepared food wise. :( I am gutted. I didnt go nuts but I had a few things I should not through sheer hunger and being unprepared. Back on track tomorrow.
 
#13
Yep I will have to be more prepared. Am out again every day this week with my son and friends and their kids so need to be prepared. Another cinema visit today with another friend so will have my lunch before I leave and will take a little pot of nuts if I feel desperate which I doubt I will.

Will be back on later to update meals. How you doing? What sort of things do you have each day? soon I will be doing phase 2 so need more tips. My book is on its way. I think it might arrive today. Hooray!

How did it go today? Yesterday I had:

Breakfast:
3 sunflower oat ryvita with natural peanut butter
fat-free natural yoghurt

snack:
apple

Lunch:
Spicy mexican black bean salad

snack
cherry tomatoes and sunflower seeds

Dinner:
Stir-fry

Snack
1 sunflower oat ryvita w/ no added sugar jam
small piece of camembert

Today I had:

Breakfast:
All bran, with linseeds and semi-skimmed milk

lunch:
Spicy Mexican salad (it's soo nice)

snack:
cherry tomatoes and sunflower seeds

Tea:
French peasant salad (just finished this, yummm)

I'll have a snack or two later too. Maybe rhubarb and yoghurt. I eat over the amount of nuts/seeds I should have, but I'll only cut back if it starts to affect my losses. I figure it's ok as I'm not having meat.
 
#15
Hiya I agree about the nuts and seeds. I didnt write my plan out last night as I had a mad day and was shattered in the evening.

I had :

Breakfast :

Scrambled eggs and a coffee

Snack :

Roasted chickpeas with paprika on

Lunch :

Quorn salad (was huge!) haha

snack :

More roasted chickpeas

Dinner :

Roasted veg and tofu

Snack :

30 pistachios

I really noticed the difference with having the chick peas. Much more fuller.

I wanna do phase 2. I miss fruit so much :(

Hi Mum of one - only just checked on here, not been on for a while. Sounds like you're doing really well. With regards to increasing veggies for breakfast you can use V8 juice or tomato juice. It's in the book - not sure if that's arrived for you yet.

So I was having omelette with mushrooms, onions, tomatoes, ham and cheese for breakfast with a glass of veg juice. I could rarely finish it (not like me!) so like Maynie says you can eat until you are full.

Also, have a look at some of the recipes because the shepherds pie on is lovely and can be made with quorn. I added beans to everything - helps that I love them, but they are so, so filling. Mashed up, with oil and herbs they make great dips too.

Hi everyone,

Still doing well but been awol as organising stuff at home and I have just been sooooo tired to even get the laptop out. Its been hard today as my mums bday and my friends so food was in plentiful supply. Had a few crisps! But thats all. I bypassed all the cakes and booze and choccies and picky food.

Thanks for the info watergirl. Its lovely to know there are people out there to help x
 
#18
Sounds like you did well at the party! I think as long as you try to do the stuff 80% of the time it's a recipe for living, if you know what I mean. There will always be times when you don't have many options, so as long as you choose the best of the bunch!

Hi everyone. Sorry not been on, just been soo busy and really tired in the evening. I feel knackered today. I have to say I havent felt too good on this diet. Really sort of exhausted. Not felt right at all.

Weigh in is on 24th! eeekk
