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.
- 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.

One donut for a sunday breakfast doesn’t hurt, you can eat it guilt free 🙂
