UD Tuesday: Menu, Plans, Thrills, Spills
 
Step right up, step right up, all the excitement of an early week UD and a time to admire Luv2Eat's beautiful Spring photographs, remember the existence of the sun and have a thoroughly enjoyable day.

B: 1/4 of an egg bake (5 whole eggs, 12 eggwhites, spinach and red pepper) with 35g of tinned tuna (approx. 250kcals)
L: gelatine-thickened chicken soup to increase my protein intake (approx. 230kcals)
D: griddled swordfish, flat beans, dried tomato, pepperonata (approx. 460kcals)

I'm about 400kcals light so I might see if I can find some chorizo to liven up the lunch soup and possibly make up some coffee granita and vanilla protein fluff to have as a pudding this evening.

At some point this week, I need to move to making the breakfast the largest meal of the day on UDs as well as DDs.

UD
B - coffee with HWC, eggs, Ezekial bread toast with SF marmalade, bacon
L - baked potato with cottage cheese and salsa
D - not sure what I want yet

Ya know what I have noticed? Ain't nobody snack! My entries on my updays are rediculously filled with little things, crackers with this spread on it, some strawberries, some of this some of that. By the time I'm done I have 42 entries in my food log! What is with me? I wish I could only eat 3 meals a day like you guys do :) Maybe that is my problem with UD...I'm hittin the greek yogurt a few times :) it is so funny and different than everybody. I need to not snack as much!

I am trying to follow Mastering Leptin which excludes eating between meals or at night. After getting used to it I no longer want to graze or eat all day long although small amounts. Three meals and I am finished. :)

I used to snack on UDs to make up the calories but similar to Adi, I'm transitioning to a leptin reset (though mine is Kruse rather than Richards - not for any particularly strong reason) and making a concerted effort to avoid snacking.

I gather that Richards discusses the reasons behind the prohibition against snacking in the book. Both Kruse and Richards advise a 5-6hr gap between meals (iirc) and advise that dinner should be eaten a good 3hrs before bedtime.

Kruse said that if you eat all the time (snacks between meals) then you impair your body's timing and circadian clocks that work in unison with Leptin. Kruse advises against any calorie intake between meals and this also excludes having milk/cream in tea or coffee (because of the calories).

If you find "Dr. Quilt’s Magical Leptin Reset and Ragtime Band" then you'll see several people report that their tendency to snack was altered by following some/all of the principles of the leptin reset.

B-coffee/H&H, coconut butter, toast (I've been eating it out of the jar, but think I might have a piece of toast w/ c. butter :D)

L-sandwich, chips, pickle...

D-Ribeye, new potatoes, coconut cream pie

ETA: MTM, I snack too, but less than I used to before JUDDD.

Silverrain 04-09-2013 05:20 AM

Good morning! So far today, I've had:

Coffee, 1 tbsp creamer, sunflower seeds, and cherry Pop-Tarts. For some reason I was craving them! This was about 550 calories in total, leaving me with about 1500 for the rest of my day.

Not sure about lunch or dinner just yet, but I do know I am going out for dinner. I just don't know where, so I'll cross that bridge when I come to it!

Have a great UD all! :D

I love coconut butter...it is delist. I think I snack cuz what I'm eating just does not satisfy me...maybe I need to focus on breaking the snack habit. I will read on this today.

Going out for dinner tonight at a Asian Tapas place with a group so it will be virtually impossible to count well. I plan to skip breakfast, have a 450 calorie late lunch that is heavy on protein so I won't be starving for dinner then try and eat lightly at dinner, no wine (whine!!). That should leave me about 1300 calories. If I stay away from fried items and limit myself to ~8 pieces of whatever the group orders I should be OK. Or maybe 6 pieces with a glass of wine. TBD.

I have loaned out my book "Mastering Leptin" but slowsure has the basics down right. That length of time between meals is important and the longer you do it the easier it is to not snack. I grew up in the three meals a day era so it really hasn't been hard for me to go back to it. Makes sense to me and I feel better plus it is way easier to count calories and keep up with them when the little suff doesn't slip by.:)

mom23kids 04-09-2013 06:40 AM

I've already eaten a ridiculous amount of chex mix this morning :o

Lunch-flat bread sandwich
Supper-probably a salad with a hb egg

Will try and keep snacking to a minimum today, seems to be the goal for most of us today :)

Adi I've been contemplating trying that baked potato, cottage cheese, and salsa. Every time I see it on your menu I'm thinking how yummy that sounds.:yummy: I just need the salsa and cottage cheese. May run to the store here in a few to get it. I bet it's filling too. I have greek yogurt so I may use that instead of the cottage cheese. I need to use it up before it ruins.

I had never eaten cottage cheese on baked potatoes until I met DH many years ago and that is how his family always ate them. He is from SD so I do not know if it is a regional thing or just their family thing. But it is good and yes it is filling. :)

MTM, funny when you mentioned the snacking thing, I guess I've learned to not snack as much between meals since JUDDDing too. Part of it is I want to be able to have really satisfying and good meals on UDs, and save my calories for then. But I also have really bought into the idea that our bodies need a rest from digesting, and it feels good to feel hungry to me now. Not ravenous, just hungry. Hmmm.

That said, I do snack. I haven't given it up completely! Just not too often now.

B: Coffee/HWC, 3 eggs fried in butter
L: Chicken salad
D: Steak, baked potato w/sour cream and butter, small salad

If I stay away from the leftover Easter candy, it'll be a nice LC day. Love it!

Had to drop something off at my in-laws and ended up raiding their kitchen for lunch. Had leftover pork steak, a salad and a cupcake :yummy: I should probably text my mil at work and let her know who ate her cupcakes (ds had one too) :laugh:

I didn't have a suitable chorizo so I changed my soup to oxtail, spiced with chili and garlic, and thickened with 20g of gelatine (which gives an additional 15g of protein). This was quite an easy way to add additional protein so it's a matter of choosing soups where the gelatine won't be obtrusive.

I added green and black olives to the pepperonata which was a good way to add some extra calories. We had coffee granita with both cardamom and vanilla protein fluff and that was a particularly good way to add calories. :)

The calorie total for the day is approx. 1300kcals which is the nearest I've ever managed for an UD so I'm pleased and will be interested to see the outcome.

Dawn, you're welcome -- glad you like Click. Doesn't it pack such a great caffeine jolt? I notice they even have a de-caffeinated version.

Yesterday, I was worried because I was AMPED on the vanilla latte version. Today, I had the Mocha, and it was good, but it gave me just the right amount of energy. I had very little sleep last night, though, so tomorrow will be a better test. ;)

sloppail 04-09-2013 06:42 PM

I loved my UD...I had a buffalo chicken pita pizza and a hamburger and onion rings...and was within my limits...oh yay!!!! I am a happy camper...:) I am well fueled for my DD tomorrow :) Ended up at 1660 cals for the day :heart:
