Newbie food diary

Hello everyone.

It's my first day and i'm doing the 1200kcal for the first two weeks.

I thought it would be good motivation to do a food diary and would be grateful of any feedback from experience RC members.

Today I have eaten:


34g porridge oats made with water
1 dsp dried fruit
1 tap honey
Some milk from allowance (3/4 pint for allowance)


1 low fat wrap
Light spread of Dijon mustard mixed with extra light mayo
50g wafer thin ham
1 shape delight fat free cherry yoghurt


50g spaghetti
Portion of Chilli and tomato sauce (from rosemary Connelly magazine)

Snack am:

2 satsumas

Snack pm:

2 satsumas

Black coffee, water diet coke and tea using milk from allowance


20 squats and 20 minutes walk.

I feel good. Amazingly I'm not hungry and looking forward to tomorrow. I just hope I have got everything right.
