No plan yet.
DH is working two jobs today, so I think I may take the kiddo to her favorite restaurant, The Old Spaghetti Factory. The thing I like there is around 1000 calories, so I may save up a bit during the day. I just love that I have this option, and she gets to go to her favorite place again!

Chona 01-10-2012 07:14 AM


B: chick/celery soup (Dottie's recipe) (56 cals)
coffee with chemicals (12 cals)
Diet V-8 Splash (10 cals)

L: chamomile tea (0 cals)

D: salad with lo-cal dressing (40 cal)

coffee with chemicals

UD for me. Thank goodness. It's been an incredibly stressful day so far and it's only 8:30!! I'd like someone else's life for a little while, please.

Coffee w/cream, scrambled eggs
Grilled cheese sandwich and tomato soup
Pork chops and salad, or burgers with pickles, depending on what DH wants
(more chocolate. Maybe I'll just bury my face into a vat of chocolate and be done with it!)

adillenal 01-10-2012 07:53 AM

B - 2 scrambled eggs in coconut oil
coffee with 2 T 2% milk and 2 T heavy whipping cream (only had one cup and I usually have several. Tyring to cut back with the cream so DD without cream isn't such a shock) (300)
L - Full fat Dannen plain yogurt with a large apple and banana cut up in it. YUM!! (900)
D - cabbage, tomato and ground beef skillet meal (500)
nothing after 7 unless a cup of chamomile tea

calculator calories DD (350) UD (1750)

Black coffee.

MintQ8 01-10-2012 09:26 AM


B: Pumpernickel Bread & Liverwurst (couple of slices of salami)
L: 2 slices of diavolo pizza & a few chips (shared pizza and bowl of chips between 4 of us!)
S: Hot chocolate with rum (no whipped cream)
Wine: Prosecco, Rose (may be more than the 1 glass so far!)
D: probably a salad, garlic bread, roast your own chicken, beef, pork meal - with sauces and potatoes!

DeeLen 01-10-2012 10:04 AM


For breakfast I had my favorite cranberry walnut muffin.

For lunch I'm having Spaghetti O's!! Can you believe I can eat Spaghetti O's and not be cheating!? I love it.

Dinner, I don't know yet.

Beeb 01-10-2012 10:05 AM

UD/FD and cleaning out the freezer/fridge of leftovers! :D Some chinese, and not sure what else, but I'm sure I will find something in the freezer that will be a "AWWW, I am so glad I saved this for my UD/FF"!!

lil miss 01-10-2012 10:13 AM


B-skinny mocha
L-small pizza, light cheese, veggies
D-sp squash, tomato sauce, gr meatball mix, wine

sophiethecat 01-10-2012 10:30 AM

1 orange, 1/2 banana, 1 slice toasted sourdough bread with about 1 T. vco, and then a concoction of 1 c. water mixed with 2 T. fresh lemon juice, 1 t. acv, 2 t. evoo, and 1 t. honey. This is to help soothe my gallbladder, I hope. I have an appt. with doctor next week to check things out.

avecrain 01-10-2012 10:31 AM

SoHappy 01-10-2012 10:37 AM

An UD here.. although not much appetite yet. I'm sure that will wake up before evening though.

B 140 calories of oatmeal

L 100 calories of lentil & spinach soup

S ???

Pami 01-10-2012 11:10 AM

UD and still sick
Not feeling much like eating, so trying to eat high calories when I do eat. So
far I've had my beef florentine skillet dinner, 2 servings, for 590 calories. I can't
imagine eating again today- but maybe after some meds and a nap, I'll think
differently. Next meds are due in 90 minutes. Maybe a slice of cheesecake later?

Tyl 01-10-2012 11:22 AM


Breakfast- oatmeal and 5 chicken wings
Lunch/dinner- baked ziti

Have added 380 more calories of sandwich.. ham with bread & butter pickles on black pumpernickel rye bread (2 slices) with mayo and mustard both. Very yummy!

sophiethecat 01-10-2012 01:59 PM

Adding a Pure Protein bar to have along with tea.

That puts me around 700 calories for the DD part of my day. FD starts again this evening. :)

My sentiments exactly!:yummy:

Today's UD was a challenge from the start! Went to bed hungry...woke up hungry. BUT I did skip breakfast, take my BCAA's, and complete a fasted workout (burned ~500 calories)! Whew. But, I have been hungry all day and craving chocolate! So, here's my report:

B: Skipped - BCAA's, Coffee & SF CoffeeMate
Post-workout meal: Swedish meatballs, potato, multigrain bread topped w/LC and tomato slices.
S: Waffle w/Nutella
S: 3 Toblerone pieces, some of my daughters tortilla chips
D: Gnocchi in meat sauce, peas & carrots, salad w/balsamic vinegrette, bread and butter

Calories: 2002

I must be doing something right despite all these calories because I wieghed in this morning at 142 which is not bad for an imperfect first week.

MintQ8 01-10-2012 03:27 PM

Dinner = yum & not what I expected!!

some veggie sticks and a nice sour cream dip
Entrecote & bearnaise sauce
2 1/2 potato cakes
some frenchfries
and some of DH's pork loin with a mushroom sauce (hit of the dinner!)
lemon sorbet with campari & prosecco

cough - 1/2 a bottle of red, another glass of rose & a rum and hot chocolate

seriously over and enjoyed every mouthful - but sooooo looking forward to tomorrow's dd

sophiethecat 01-10-2012 03:30 PM

5:30 p.m. had an apple and then some spaghetti with lots of cheese.

Also some regular cottage cheese, about 2 T. evoo, black pepper and a carrot.

I'm being overly optimistic with this much dairy and fat all at once with the ache and other symptoms I've been having, but I guess I just feel lucky this evening.

KeirasMom 01-10-2012 04:09 PM

Okay the day is finally figured out:

B: Turkey Burger and coffee
L: Small Chili with Hot Sauce
D: The Old Spaghetti Factory
Whole wheat spaghetti pot pourri
Bread and butter
S: Wine

Will come in just over 2100, leaving me a little bit if needed before bed.

Pasta, bread, butter, wine, ice cream? You bet!

Alcestis 01-10-2012 05:12 PM

I had a fabulous UD:

B: coffee, oatmeal
S: tangerine, cocoa
L: mmmm, this was the long, lazy lunch day.. started with bruschetta and a little arugula with romano, then onto to a lobster and cheese sandwich (like the best ever grilled cheese packed with lobster), onion rings, a small slice of thin crust pizza brushed with truffle honey (OMGOMGOMG) and topped with crushed pistachios...and then sampled an amazingly intense chocolate dish and a slice of pound cake in olive oil (I don't know how they cook it, but it was sooo good) topped with pistachio ice cream, blueberry sherbert and cream. Oh, and coffee.

I did bring some home for DH and I didn't really over eat, to be honest. My jeans (the ones that were snug a few weeks ago) didn't feel remotely uncomfortable.

Having said that, I had to lie down for a few minutes this evening, when all the rich ingredients made themselves known in my tummy!!!

I REALLY enjoyed all the wonderful food, I am NOT hungry for any dinner :laugh: and I am thoroughly looking forward to my DD tomorrow :D

Wine2 01-10-2012 05:58 PM

DD for me-
B: Coffee, 3 eggbeaters
Lunch: 2 cups chicken broth W/squeeze of 1/2 lemon
Snack: 2 cups chicken broth W/squeeze of 1/2 lemon
Dinner: 300 cals (when DH gets home maybe make shrimp with veggies)
Snack before bed: 100 cals of FF Greek yogurt (plain)

BTW -On DD I make sure I drink 9 to 10 8oz glasses of liquid because food typically has water in it, so since I'm having less food, I drink more fluids than on UD.

itsmeshelly01 01-10-2012 05:58 PM

UD for me!

1 egg fried in a t of bacon grease with 1 piece of toasted light wheat bread, a little butter on to
Snack of yogurt mixed with cottage cheese and protein whey protein
Lunch was rotisserie chicken salad with a boiled egg
Small of 1 Apple, coconut bark
Half of a Otis smunkmeyer cookie
Dinner was rotisserie chicken salad. I made chicken Alfredo for the family and I actually had a little bit! Maybe half a cup cooked so it wasn't much but it was good!
I'll have a glass of wine later, even with that im still under 1700 calories. I may have a half cup of yogurt later with sunflower seeds to give me some more calories. Im only at a little over 100 grams of protein though so maybe I should eat some more chicken or maybe I should just bite the dang bullet and have some 85 percent chocolate with my wine. Hhhmmmmmmm
That would put me up to about 1800

sazzie 01-10-2012 06:08 PM


Protein shake w/almond milk
2 eggs
Cream of wheat

Ritz Crackerfuls
Cranberry & Sesame Nut mix

liverwurst (craved for at least a year)
Artisan bread rosemary & olive oil/ketchup/onions

linguine/broccoli drizzled w/olive oil

Skinny Cow strawberry swirl ice cream sandwich

Nestle's hot chocolate

What a delicious-filled day this was!!!!

total calories so far are only 1045, so I'll certainly be able to work in an ice cream sundae this evening with vanilla ice cream, chocolate sauce, and whipped cream with a cherry on top! Woo Hoo!

And after that I'll really be looking forward to my DD tomorrow! :laugh:

sophiethecat 01-10-2012 08:24 PM

Just had a Taco Bell bean burrito and an apple.

julietcc 01-10-2012 08:45 PM

I just had my lowest DD ever. I'm happy I pulled it off since I'm planning a mid day Friday and a free day Saturday to enjoy a big lunch out with friends.

B: Coffee with SF creamer and a SF hard candy - 75

L: 2 carbmaster yogurts, a chicken bouillon cube (good thing work had been crazy and I worked through lunch) - 125

D: Coffee with SF creamer - 65

= 265 calories

I'm hungry right now. Good thing it's 7:45 already.

Tomorrow I'm going to make kale chips for the first time. Has anyone tried them? If they are good, I might use them on DDs too!

Kale tossed in bit of olive oil & baked are great. I like to salt & season them before I place in oven. They're best right out of oven...
