Diet Plan and Weight Watching-Week 6 update

 

I am back with my diet update for week 5. Last week  , I was indeed a bad student, I couldn’t control much on my calories this week. I will blame the cold weather for my binging 😉  I ate outside one time and  mostly cooked at home . The calories target of 1400 cal was missed  few times .Sometimes it was less and sometimes more than 1400 cal , but good news is I still managed to shed a pound in spite of my carelessness , my body is now getting active and increasing its metabolism.

Tips :

  • Maintaining a diary for calories intake helps a lot to keep a check of food consumed.
  • Adding some spices makes boring food interesting. Try out your cooking this week.

Some  pictures of the cooking done this week except the donuts .

 

A good idea for lighter dinner, 3 pieces of  medium sized vol au vent with homemade vegetable sauce makes 400 calories.

You cannot indulge much into pizza except for a while it was a month already without pizza so we baked at home, 3 slices of homemade pizza are enough for  reaching 450 calories.

    You are doing fantastic! I am going to reblog this post so that others can see the great recipes! I am realizing that I can splurge a bit as long as I stick to my plan with my smoothies and such. That proves that as long as you are good most of the time, you still can lose weight! 😀 ❤ Thanks so much for being part of this wonderful journey! ❤
