Today was supposed to be an UD but I tried a potato day yesterday that ended with a mini-binge, so today's a DD! yippee!
Still using the hour window 11-7.

B: black coffee
D: steamed chicken breast and broccoli w/garlic, chili flakes and gaerlic
S: broth w/celery and carrots

Well I was starving, not fake hunger, HUNGRY....so I already ate something.

2 boiled eggs
cottage cheese
salad
steamed broccolli and mushrooms

Goal is between 600-700c

Dottie, if I ate just potatoes, besides my bloodsugar crashing HARD, I would eat whatever wasn't nailed down! Potatoes are NOT my friend!

DD Potato Testing Day

B - 1 scrambled egg 60c, 1 small potato roasted ?c
L - 1 medium potato baked w/ spices & A1 100c?
D - another baked potato or shredded in waffle iron

I wasn't hungry from breakfast to lunch so I don't know if it was the egg that helped but I was afraid so that's why I did the egg.

B - coffee - I've trained myself to sort of enjoy it with just 1 tsp of creamer and a few capella's flavor drops, so a cup is only about 12 calories instead of 100

L - half of a muffin made with Ouizoid's fantastic flour mix (love that stuff!)

D - Leftover cabbage, mushroom, dumpling casserole

S - other half of muffin

Should end the day a tad under 400 cals. I usually allow myself up to 500, but yesterday's UD was pretty salty and I have some bloat to get rid of.

RebeccaSimpson 01-24-2013 11:08 AM

1 Apple
2 small carrots
2 glasses of green juice

It's kinda hard to figure out the cals in a green juice, but I found on the web 1 of my juices is about 120cals. My allowed cals are 385, so I think I just hit it.

coffee

egg white omelet with canadian ham & broccoli

chicken broth with chicken breast, shredded cabbage & shiratake noodles

Total = 489 calories

Natasha-- I *think* (I'm no expert) that the potato was supposed to be in total absence of fat... I don't think the egg will ruin anything, but if you do it again, I think you can do spices and stuff like salsa, but the egg might have too much fat and protein?
:confused: check with the potato hack folks...

OMG, I spent the whole day with my friend! :eek: I was available for work (blackberry) but after the citizenship ceremony, we went for lunch... then back to her place while she packed for a trip and we had tea... :o I feel a little guilty... and then I remember every SUNDAY I give up to travel for work, and I'll try not to feel guilty. :p

B: venti green tea with 3 splenda from starbucks
L: beet and goat cheese and greens salad (couldn't find info so used the same salad from cheesecake factory skinnylicious menu...) but I'm sure it's less b/c I didn't eat the pecans-- so I think I'll take 50 cals off (pecan halves are 10 each!). Lots of water.

D: my plan is for a cup of my 50 cal soup, and some yogurt with jam and splenda

About 375. Leaving room for error in lunch.

I had a DD that turned into an UD yesterday, so Im' having a down day today and I had already planned to do a complete fast tomorrow. I think I still will even though I know it's not recommended to regularly have double down days. I'm planning to just have almond milk today. Starting this weekend, I want to have a really clean two weeks of up and down rotations and try to actually stick to the 300ish calories I'm supposed to have on down days. I've figured out some meals that will work despite what I previously said. :) I'm new to this diet, and I want to harness that initial momentum, enthusiasm and initial boost that you get and get especially the down days right on point every time in these two weeks.
I'm also finally reading the book. :)

Who knows Sara, you may get a whoosh! ;)

I am hungry, and cold today. I just had 2pcs of salami (thin, and cooked, so some of the fat is out) and another serving of my 50cal soup.

DH is having a rough day at work (heckuva week, with the dog issues and now work stuff... :( poor guy) and he's running quite late. I'm NOT eating his stir-fry though! :)

I'm pretty cold-- was outside more than usual, and then my friend had her house temp at like 15C (um... 59F). :dunno: I was like, OMG WHY IS IT SO COLD IN HERE?????
But I was there for an hour, and thoughroughly chilled...

sigh. I'm going to get sick again, aren't I?
:(

I'm experimenting with the 5:2 plan so both Tuesday and Wednesday were UDs, followed by today's DD. I'm very curious to see what happens at my weigh in tomorrow!

Carly 01-24-2013 04:08 PM

Half cup tea
Half cup broth
Bedtime snack in about 90 minutes:
Cucumber slices and LC cheese on deli pops I think.

BaileysGirl 01-24-2013 04:20 PM

SOREN - I think you are right! Ugh! We shall see what tomorrow brings. TMI but don't know if I'll be doing the PH again as I've had horrible gas all afternoon. :/

grammyw/kitties 01-24-2013 05:37 PM

Can we freeze a shake into fudgesickles ..has anyone tried this..I need to find some popsickle molds.Haven't had them since the kids were little..lol

sorenkkg 01-24-2013 07:48 PM

Grammy, don't see why not! Popsicles are back, finding molds shouldn't be an issue. Online, Walmart, tjmaxx type stores (maybe more seasonally).

KathyL 01-24-2013 08:05 PM

I ate a baked potato with cottage cheese, plus my coconut oil for a total of 390 cal. I should start doubling up on CO on UDs so I have more food calories on DDs. LOL

Kissa 01-25-2013 02:37 AM

I had one of my naughty DDs.

Soya coffee
10 cal broth
2 small glasses of bubbly and some olives
1 glass of mulled wine.

Not sensible.

I froze Atkins shakes into popsicles in the past and they were dreadful. Yours might be better. If I want a sweet treat I just have a 40 calories fudgesicle.
