What I ate yesterday

After 3 months of houseguests and moving too I'm sure you can imagine how far off the wagon I am. And yes, it is showing on the scales - I've gained 2.5kg (5.5lb) and that was getting off lightly. Yesterday was the first day back on track and I decided to show you what I eat when I am following Weight Watchers.

I eat every 3-4 hours or else I get low blood sugar and get really cranky and have no energy. I try to limit carbs and sugar. I don't feel like I'm on a diet and I don't go hungry.

Breakfast - usually between 8:30 and 9:00

Yesterday I had two scrambled eggs with salt and pepper and a little parmesan, and half a can of fruit salad (in juice), drained and rinsed, and a big glass of water. I didn't have any toast or cereal because I am breaking a sugar addiction and find I have no cravings if I start the day without bread or cereal. I am trying to eat fruit and / or veg at each meal and this was before I went to the vege shop so we had none fresh.

Lunch - usually around 12:00

Broccoli and cheese soup - a recipe from a Weight Watchers magazine - and a big glass of water (I also drink extra water between meals). I love this soup, it is delicious. I made extra and froze it in portions.

Afternoon snack - usually between 3:00 and 3:30

Banana smoothie with vanilla and cinnamon, 20g of almonds and more water. I was starting to get some carb cravings and this took care of them, filled me up and gave me energy.

Dinner - usually between 5:30 and 6:00

Lean pork loin grilled on the BBQ, steamed potatoes (I added a little butter and salt), salad (iceberg lettuce, tomato, cucumber, carrot, yellow pepper and grapes) with a little vinaigrette, and of course more water.

Evening snack - usually around 9:00 or so

I'm sure I'll get comments about eating (especially carbs) late at night but honestly it works for me and I still lose weight. I look forward to my cereal or porridge in the evening, it's my little treat :) If I don't have something to eat I wake up in the early hours with my stomach rumbling. Last night I had porridge (oatmeal) with skim milk, a little cinnamon sugar and sliced banana.

All of this food was delicious, filling and not too much hassle to prepare and fell within the 29 Weight Watchers ProPoints (Points+) daily allowance (in fact, it totalled 28).

Please let me know if you are interested in seeing different meal ideas as it will keep me on track if I know I am showing you what I ate in a day ;)

  8. Perfect timing! I just started a very strict bland food diet yesterday due to medical issues. I figured since I have to eat in such a controlled way for the next 60 days it would be a great time for me to get back on my Weight Watchers program since I've been off for a while. I hope you post more food diary info. Thanks!
