DAY ONE MILITARY DIET

Daily Updates

Yay yay yay! 

I have completed day one of the diet!

I have eaten-

Breakfast:  

This is one piece of wholemeal toast with two WHOLE tablespoons (30g) of peanut butter. Wow. That was a lot of peanut butter, way more than I would normally have eaten but still I enjoyed it, it felt like a treat to be honest ha. There is a caffeinated black tea with it. What is not included in this diet is the grapefruit that I was supposed to eat. I didn’t have any grapefruit in the house, unfortunately, so the substitution was for a half teaspoon of baking soda dissolved in water. I drank this and it was foul. However, it is supposed to kick start your metabolism or fat burning process in the liver! 

Lunch:

 

Lunch was delish, but very little as you can see. This was all I ate. Usually I finish off with some other vegetables like cucumber and cherry tomatoes and I did actually crave them! However I stuck to my guns. So here, I drank one caffeinated tea again. I ate one piece of wholemeal toast with a can of tuna. I did season the tuna with salt and pepper which I don’t normally do, I would put a sauce on it but I didn’t. 

Tea:

 

Here is my dinner. They told us to eat a deck of cards sized piece of meat (85g) and a cup of green beans. I didn’t have either of these and so I ate 3 slices of ham, 1 slice of pastrami, a lot of lettuce and cucumber which came to about 31 calories which is the amount the green beans would have come to. On top of that I ate:

 

I ate half a banana and an apple. Also I was allowed to eat a whole cup of vanilla ice cream which I substituted for 187g of Greek yogurt with 30g fruit jam which was probably a lot less calories. 

I don’t feel hungry at the moment. I drank nine cups of tea/water throughout the day plus a Vitamin C tablet which was 10 calories.

I did work out my calories just to see how many it was- 964! That’s so so low. I didn’t do any exercise today and I did feel a bit dizzy at times but I just had to drink some water and I was fine!

So that’s the end of day one.

You may wonder what sparked my decision to do this diet. Well. Apparently I weigh 11 stone 0.4 lbs. I cried. I know I have been binging lately but I didn’t deserve to be that weight. Anyway with the wedding approaching it has frightened me into dieting hardcore style.

If any of you have not heard of this diet then go to http://www.themilitarydiet.com 

It has all the information on there including substitutions and FAQs.

I have been trawling through the vast amount of success stories online especially on YouTube so please look and get inspired. 

Im excited to find out my results and see how tomorrow goes! Wish me luck.

Maintenance

Daily Updates

Wow I haven’t written on this blog in so so long so I definitely owe you lot an update!

I’m currently 10 stone 9.5lbs and the wedding is 4 weeks away today. I don’t think I’m going to manage to lose enough weight to be 9 stone 13lbs as I’m going to be honest with you I’ve hit a binging wall! Every time I don’t eat very much, I binge so much the next day and eat the calories I otherwise would have lost weight on. So unfair. It got so hard and I just felt like shit so then I concentrated on trying to just eat 1400 but I can only maintain on that amount, it is very hard to lose weight. I think that might be my basal metabolic rate, or around the 1500 mark so what is the point in me trying to lose weight on that? It would take months! No one can weight that long.

I’ve decided that eating 1200 calories is hell on earth, the majority of the time unless I feel ill or extremely bloated?

I don’t really have a recent picture of my body but maybe I’ll take one soon, there’s not much change- maybe a bit of weight loss off my stomach and my legs are more muscular because I’ve been walking so much! I have been walking 10,000-15,000 steps everyday.

Anyway, I will try and post more but I can’t promise it, my degree takes over my life and living with other people makes it harder to find time to be by myself.

Day 6 of 2015- 35 Days of 1200 calories

Daily Updates

Hello everyone, can you believe it? Two blog posts in one day and now it is a daily update! Just like I used to do!

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/d37/73850620/files/2015/01/img_3356.jpgThis was my breakfast- green tea and one piece of brown bread with nutella. 167kcal. I wasn’t very hungry this morning which surprised me and so I didn’t eat my usual porridge./home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/d37/73850620/files/2015/01/img_3362.jpgThis was my lunch and it was delicious and healthy as usual, I had an apple in between breakfast and lunch. I had sliced cucumber, cherry tomatoes, one cooked beetroot and tuna with 10g of tar tar sauce. I then had two rice cakes too at 29kcal each. 284kcal.

After lunch I had a caramel bar, as I have shown you in a previous blog:

caramel-bar 134kcal.

For dinner I had the same as yesterday but plain white rice instead of risotto. I didn’t really want the white rice as I don’t really like it and it makes me bloated but my mum made it so I couldn’t really say no. It came to 473kcal.

Following dinner I had this lovely jelly at 18kcal:

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/d37/73850620/files/2015/01/img_3365.jpgAfter this at around 8pm I drank a low calorie hot chocolate at 38kcal. Delicious. Before bed I was feeling very dizzy and still am, but I know that is just my body burning off more calories than it is taking in and so I must just be dehydrated. I will drink more tomorrow.

My total intake was 1,200 exactly and I’m still on track with my new goal. Day 6 complete!

End of Day Ninety-two (If I’d been carrying on daily blogging)

Daily Updates

This is my first update in months everyone, and I’m sorry for that but my life is just too busy to keep daily blogging but don’t worry- I break up for christmas soon and my blog will be back up and running with blogs most days, including my daily intake on CHRISTMAS DAY. That will be my motivation for not eating much- the fact it will ALL be blogged on here for you lovelies to see.

 

As you can see from the scales above- my weight is still going down. This is the lowest it’s been and I’m delighted but am still not satisfied. I only stick to 1200 calories a day when I’m working so 4 days a week but when I spend days at home I eat ridiculous amounts. My lifestyle has changed rapidly though- when I go out to eat, I never use it as an excuse to eat anymore. Last night I went to Nandos (not pizza hut or mcdonald’s) and ate butterfly chicken with macho peas, followed by toffee apple frozen yogurt- this came in at 650calories which was quite a lot but compared to what I would’ve eaten had I gone elsewhere, was so good. I didn’t even get chips? IMG_2764.JPGHere is my lunch today- homemade soup and the crackers have coronation tuna and cucumber slices on. It was delicious. I wanted it to be quite light as I am off out bridesmaid dress shopping now so au revoir xox

 

RESULTS!

I JUST HAD TO UPLOAD THIS. I cannot remember the last time I was this weight, it just has never happened. I have never seen this number on scales! I know I keep saying this but I truly mean it, it is amazing and I’m keeping on going!

IMG_2559.JPG

 

This was some of my lunch, I had a huge bowl of this delicious frozen fruit from Tesco which is 90p for about 200 grams! I had 80g of it for only 72kcals and it takes me ages to eat and really fills me up- 10/10 I would recommend!
