FOOD DIARY: Tuesday January 22nd The 5:2 Eating Plan

52 Diet Dinner

This is an eating plan suggested by Dr Michael Mosley (BBC2 Horizon show) with the purpose to reduce weight and improve general health (cholesterol, blood sugar etc). On this plan we eat normally for 5 days however on two days each week we restrict our food intake. That means 500 calories (2092 kj) for gals and 600 calories (2510 kj) for guys. The two days are not consecutive so we have chosen Tuesdays and Thursdays but we will adjust that to occur on days that we mostly stay home. This plan will suit our lifestyle and allows us to eat sparinigly but well on the diet days. Our first day was January 22nd, 2013. We will report on the results as we notice them!

This evening meal consisted of 100 gr (3 oz) chicken breast each, marinated in crushed garlic, smoked paprika and lemon juice then grilled along with an assortment of vegetables. We used mushrooms, eggplant and capsicum. A tiny portion of a Greek Yoghurt sauce made it taste quite delicious.
