DD Friday: menu and plans
 
last working day of the conventional week and then it's a long weekend for us in the UK with a public holiday on Monday. :jumpjoy: And I'm kayaking tomorrow. :jumpjoy:

B: 85g sardines (220kcals) with a slice of egg bake (110kcals). Total=330kcals.

I've already exceeded my calorie allowance for the day. :)

DH is starting his modified potato hack tonight so it will be interesting to see how he responds.

May everyone's DD be smooth. And if these pterostilbene headaches would clear, I'd be jolly grateful.

Hoping for a simple and easy day :) a light breakfast and then potatoes. If I'm up any weight tomorrow which is my weigh in...I think I'm gonna slide off the map and take a much needed hiatous from any kinda anything pertaining to dieting!

After yesterdays UUAD I need to keep it low today and I'm going to try to eat nothing until dinner time. For dinner I think I will try one of the Panera Hidden Menu meals, should be around 360 calories. Also planning a 6 mile walk.

Mike

Goner 05-03-2013 07:15 AM

Since my first DD worked well, my second DD today will consist of the same:

2 cups chicken broth = 30 c
LF yogurt = 80 c
3 oz. baby carrots = 40 c
2 slices bacon = 80 c
1 egg = 70 c
green vegetable = 60 c

TOTAL = 360

sorenkkg 05-03-2013 07:28 AM

:hiya: folks!

I'm feeling better and better-- the sun is finally shining, my daffodils and some tulips are starting to bloom, and I'm feeling less sad, and more hopeful.

So, I have 8 days until I leave for the big client user group/conference that I'd been planning for all year (and the let the last 2 weeks totally derail me :rolleyes: )

I plan to be totally on track the next 8 days, including counting my UD, and keeping my DD totally on track.

B: waiting for some white tea to brew (and then ice) and vitamins including ptero-blue
L: not sure, maybe finish off the chicken/veggie soup, 38
D: also not sure, but it will involve veggies, chicken, yogurt... or cereal and almond milk. :confused:

TryingJudd 05-03-2013 08:11 AM

Trying to hold out as long as possible. I have here at work with me a few hardboiled eggs (of which I will only eat the whites), a light yogurt and some raw veggies. If I end up eating out tonight I will try and stick to salad or similar light fare.

Planelman - what is this hidden menu at Pannera? I love their food but avoid it because everything is so calorie intensive. Do they really have low cal options and have chosen to HIDE THEM???? makes no sense to me.

If you google "panera hidden menu" it should be the first result. It is basically 6 meal options that are low carb, paleo/primal compliant (or more compliant). Not sure why they are "hidden", and i haven't tried them yet, but I'm going there anyways and decided to try one.

KeirasMom 05-03-2013 08:26 AM

B: Black coffee (5)
L: Small Wendy's chili with TJ's habanero hot sauce (210)
D: ??

Off to google Panera's hidden menu.

ETA: They look good, and the calories are fine for DD, but I keep my DDs really low usually, so I'll be sure to try one of the options on an UD!

Demonica 05-03-2013 08:52 AM

B- BP coffee
L- coffee with HWC
D-HB egg with 1/2 Tbsp mayo, mustard and relish, string cheese

total 335

LiLi914 05-03-2013 08:59 AM

I really cannot figure out what it is about Friday DDs that get to me. Of course I woke up with a headache and my stomach was rumbling. I don't know why since yesterday was a bit of a UUAD. Hoping I can stick to my calories today. I've been drinking my water with some added MIO today because it's been that kind of morning so far and water doesn't even taste good to me today.

B: Three red seedless grapes
L: romaine lettuce, one boiled egg, turkey meat - no dressing because I hate salad dressing
D: Either a chobani yogurt or rice cake with mustard.

I have a hair appointment tonight so dinner will have to be quick and easy. Hope everyone is having a decent DD so far.

tobelowcarber 05-03-2013 09:22 AM

Have fun- SS!

Going to stick to low carb to control UUAD

salmon and egg frittata
turkey
lots of bone broth and water

~700 cal

I struggle on Friday DD's too! Not sure it's the "celebrate end of week" or just the mental block of it being Friday! Today will be GOOD, we will make it that way!

I'm going to hold you to that.

Librarygirl 05-03-2013 11:41 AM

Add me to the list that's struggling with weekend DDs. I've got to get out of the mindset that weekends are "treat me" time. :) Today I've been extra hungry and dissatisfied with everything I can choose from to eat. But, I'm going to make it a good one with you!! We can do it!:high5:

Not to rub it in but if the weather stays like this for tomorrow, the water conditions should be perfect. And I finally trust the arrival of warm weather enough to plant up some more of my garden and worry in case I've missed the nematode window for pest control.

i'm pleased to learn that the weather and your spirits are reviving. Oddly enough, I'm about to have some iced white tea as it 's so warm here despite being almost 8pm.

I'm glad it's not just me to whom this makes absolutely no sense. I wonder how many group bookings they lose because people don't know about this.

Well my DD has gone off the wall.. Wayne made lasagne we have a friend over & going over to another friends house warming shortly. Knowing that tomorrow has to be a UD because of the festival & been thinking how to fit next Saturday in as it falls on a DD and were having our housewarming so been reading the Q&A's in the book about keeping sat & sun both as UD's I've decided from now on Sunday, Tuesday & Thursdays will be DD's & Monday, Wednesday, Friday & Saturday will be UD's. I know it means my loss will be slower but it seems like its the best way for me to keep this as a long term woe.

LoCarbGal 05-03-2013 12:27 PM

I can't explain why, but I too hate Friday and Sunday DDs. For some reason, Saturday DDs, while not a thrill, don't bum me out as much.

I've done the same thing :) Isn't it freeing :jumpjoy: go enjoy yourself. :sing: But remember, don't finish it if you don't love it :high5:

Ah- the piece you're missing is that panera is a chain (franchise? Not sure) bakery/cafe, so you order quickly and either sit, or take it to go. The sandwich / salad menu's not huge, but big enough... They used to do low carb bread (2 kinds!)

Anyway, so this "hidden menu" is a bit of a trend with American fast food chains now- basically, giving you the healthier options you usually ask for as a special favor, like a burger with no bun, on lettuce instead (called animal style I think at the in and out burger chain in California)... So giving a secret name to these options...
Shrug :dunno: whatever, as long as I have options that fit my woe, and I don't get hassled... Hide the menu, don't hide the menu... ;)

I have an organic horseradish mustard that's fantastic! It's 0 calories (supposedly). I choose to believe it. :D

Planelman 05-03-2013 03:58 PM

I had the Power Mediterranean Chicken salad off the Panera hidden menu, 360 calories. It was really good and I would get it again. But I confused the cashier, she had no idea what I was talking about and said it didn't have chicken on it, apparently it is hidden from the employees too.

Kimberli33 05-03-2013 04:09 PM

B- 1/2 c plain greek yogurt

motivatedMomma4 05-03-2013 04:44 PM

My husband Started juddd at the begining of last month. I swear he only does one actual DD a week...sometimes 2. It seems his others are mid days or UDs and he still is losing. He lost 13lbs last month. now I know men tend to lose easier that men but like you said you have to make it so you can do this long term. you will find what works for you!!
