801010 Day 8

I felt ok today but slightly itchy which I think was an allergy to the quinoa I had last night.  I need to avoid quinoa but we had run out of rice so I tried it yesterday but that familiar itchy and shivery reeling running down my back has returned, albeit more mildly than before.

A simple breakfast of blackberries with mango.blackberry and mango 2 I prefer blackberries in a smoothie but the mango was lovely.blackberry and mango I popped out at lunch time and chose to spend half an hour sitting in Timberyard.  I fancied some time out.  Time just for me.matcha latte 1 I had a matcha made with soya milk like a latte.  I have not had one before; it was slightly bitter but pleasant enough.  The best part was sitting in Timberyard, peacefully on my own while I drank it.matcha latte It was such a lovely sunny day today.sunny seven dials I walked up to Food For Thought.FFT salad mixed I chose a box of mixed salad and all 4 salads were excellent.  They were very different, all vegan and all good.  The downside to a meal like this though is that it is hard to track what you are eating!FFT salad 9-4-15 A quick and easy supper of blueberry and banana ice-cream.blueberries 9-4-15 Blackberries and 4 bananas.  Such a quick and easy supper.blueberry banana ice cream

Annoyingly I then had 50g of white chocolate which was left over from Easter 😦

Today’s numbers are:

Calories consumed = 1,857

% of calories consumed by food group:

Carbohydrates = 67 %
Fat = 24 %
Protein = 9 %

Looking at the averages over the past week the numbers are:

Carbohydrates = 62 %
Fat = 28 %
Protein = 10 %

So the protein is good but the fat too high so next week I need to focus on eating less fat and more carbs.

About Lose Weight and Gain Health

Hi! My name is Zoe and I live in Hastings, East Sussex, with my son Harvey and dog, Milton. I have been fighting the fat for years but this time I am serious. I want to lose weight and gain health. This blog is about how I am changing my lifestyle so I can lose weight but not by just "being on a diet" but by making small changes to our lives so that as I lose weight, I gain health. I want my family to be healthy too and never have to struggle with their weight like I have. In common with many large people, I have gained and lost weight many times over the years. This time, I want to lose it and maintain a healthy low weight. I am interested in eating food that is nutrient dense and delicious and that appeals to children and adults. I do not eat animal products so follow a vegan diet. I try to use locally produced food supplemented with what I can grow myself. I support and try to use local farmers markets and farm shops. Another objective is to add more exercise to our days. It sounds so simple when I write it down :-)

    Just make sure you don’t remove too much fat. Our bodies need fat to help it move easier. Plus, it is what keeps us full longer because it takes longer to digest.
