What will be your first meal after maintenance?

#2
I am going to have a BLT sandwich.

Bread cut from a fresh loaf, really thin layer of margerine, lean cold bacon, a slice of lettuce and extra tomatoes.

Not that I've been thinking about it much......LOL.

It's a long way off for me; but after years of treating my body like a rubbish bin, I'm hoping that I will be sensible enough to choose something that is nutritious! I'm not going through all this just to go back to my faves.

For me, this is the start of looking after myself.. so I will eat all my faves again, but as healthy versions.
I know that if I eat like I have eaten in the past, I will end up at square one...

for me, when I go home to Australia hopefully having finished maintenence I will have a beautiful steak with a jacket spud or a beautiful piece of grilled barramundi with a salad and Queensland scallops with a Turkish bread side, toasted with douka. I miss Aussie food!!

i was thinking about a nice chicken curry with brown rice. I have issues with snacking rather than meal choices so my plan is no snacking but crisps and dip on a saturday

My wife makes a wicked chilli using the Quorn mince, veggies, and her own concoction of various types of battery acid for the kick!! She uses something called chilpotle chilli in it which has a smokey flavour ..... gorgeous!

I ate chilli etc after I first lost my weight (7st 4lb) and I managed to maintain easy enough. The only reason I have a few pounds to lose now is because I stopped exercising after a few injuries and like a fool did not adjust my calorie intake. Stupid mistake.

Anyway, what I used to do is to balance my intake over a week or so rather than day by day. I would be VERY strict during the week (Mon-Fri) as that was easily done due to the structure that work gave me, and I would exercise every weekday without fail. I applied this rule to bank holiday Mondays or other weekdays that were holidays. I would then relax the rules for Saturday and Sunday, though I would not be stupid about what I ate. Healthy versions of all my favourites ....

That way, I could say that I was having a chilli or whatever on a Saturday, and it was somethig to look forward to. In effect, I never denied myself anything - just made myself wait. Made it all the better when Saturday came.

I think if you plan ahead, and you know you are going to be naughty at a weekend, just reign in the calories during the week and save up a bank of spare calories for the weekend.

Just a matter of self-control .... and following this diet teaches you that for sure!!
