Today’s weight loss/gain: 0

Total weight loss: 3.5kg

Today’s exercise: 30 minutes

Nooooo weight loss *SIGH*…I guess I should be grateful that I haven’t put on any weight? After all, I did have a total mass breakout last weekend with my KFC and McDonald’s in one day. Last night, I also ate loooooots of deep fried pork ribs and lots of fried prawn balls. So, yes, I should be grateful that I’m not backtracking.

I didn’t follow day 16 on the 21-Day Wonder Diet today, there were 3 reasons:

1. I didn’t have any unsweetened apple juice needed to make the breakfast porridge
2. I had a training course at work today
3. I didn’t have any bean sprouts to make my dinner

So, for breakfast, I had Day 17’s breakfast beans. So easy, pretty much a can of beans (I used butter beans), a can of chopped tomatoes, some seeded mustard, bacon, garlic and onions and fresh parsley. I shouldn’t have done it, but I added about 2 teaspoons of brown sugar because the tomato was very sour.

I had that for breakfast with rye and was very very full. It’s seriously a huge portion.

I binged on Doritoes with salsa for morning and afternoon tea. Lunch was rice paper roll wrap with raw vegetables (bland, bland, bland – how’d THEY know I was on a diet??).

I also ate like 50 Mentos.

Dinner was the same as what I had last night, low fat moussaka. The moussaka recipe would be perfect for the Phase 2 Protein + Vegetable Day.

Start with about 200g of lean beef, I used Coles brand 4 star beef. You need 2 tomatoes, half an onion and 2 cloves of garlic (I love garlic). You also need about half a cup of beef stock. Fry this up with no oil and add a quarter of a teaspoon each of nutmeg and cinnamon. Once the beef has browned, add the stock and let it simmer until all the stock has absorbed. Once it has absorbed, stir through freshly chopped basil and parsley.

Roast sliced (about 1cm thick) eggplant and capsicums. I seasoned and roasted it in the oven at 220 degrees for about half an hour. You can spray it with oil if you like, but you don’t need to.

A couple tablespoons of lemon and lemon zest and mix it with no fat yoghurt and drizzle on top with some baby rocket.

It’s seriously yummy (otherwise I wouldn’t bother posting it) and it’s low in fat/calories. All the ingredients are within the Dukan Diet’s criteria – I’ve read the book cover to cover. And for people who just want a healthy, low fat and delicious meal, this meal (which serves 2) is about 230 calories.
