So I got through week 1 without too much hassle. The main problem is keeping the fat to protein ratios right and having to record everything. It is now weigh in time, so lets see how I went.
I started this diet on a Friday so I have decided to move my weigh in day to Monday’s to make it easier to keep track of everything. Works for me.
Week 2 – 20 August 2018
- Weight – 85.3kgs (188.05) – so a 2kgs (4.4lbs) loss. Not bad at all.
- Measurements. Bust 44″, Waist 41¼”, Hips 46″. Wow, not the hourglass figure I was back in the day. But never mind, we will press on.
I am feeling okay at the moment but I still have aches and pains on rising from bed in the morning. Still I guess it’s a bit much to expect instantaneous results, after quite some time of neglect.
Still continuing on the same way as week 1 as far as food is concerned. Just trying to increase the fat to protein ratios. That’s always the tricky bit.
Recipes for this Week
I found some fat bomb recipes that really help to keep the fat intake up.
Strawberry Cheesecake Fat Bombs from Low Carb – So Simple
- These are delicious (as you can see by the image from Elviira’s site below) and the only change I made to this recipe was the liquid stevia. I don’t like using sugar substitutes and I don’t particularly have a sweet tooth, so I just left it out.
I found that both fresh and frozen strawberries worked well.
- I put them in the freezer, as the recipe says, but I liked them better as a squishy cheesecake texture, so moved a few of them from the freezer to the fridge each day.
- Did I mention they are delicious
Ginger Fat Bombs from Ditch the Carbs
- I love the flavour of ginger, so these fat bombs are a real treat as well.
- Once again I didn’t add any sugar, and I did up the ante on the ginger to a heaped tsp.
- Because they are made from Coconut Oil, they tend to keep you satisfied for longer.
- These I keep in the fridge for topping up a lunch or a dinner that is lean on fat.
- I don’t tend to snack between meals but if I did feel the need I had a nice supply of fat bombs on hand.
So my advice, and I’m no expert, is to make sure you have these little treats on hand if you need them, but try and stick to just mealtime regardless of whether you have three meals a day or you decide to do intermittent fasting of one or two meals a day.
