What’s This, Another Blog Entry Already?

I know that it is neither Tuesday nor Thursday, but I’ve got something to share. I feel the need to add a third fasting day to my regimen. The reason is simple and two-fold. One, I’d like to lose weight a bit quicker than I already am and two, I would like to gain more control over my eating habits. It’s not like I’m out of control on my feed days, however, I generally eat more than I ought. My biggest problem comes in the evening. I am ostensibly self controlled during the day but after the sun sets, I become ravenous. I’ve tried having some herbal tea and at times, a cup of broth but nothing hits the spot like a slice of toast with peanut butter and jelly. I’m not talking about a thinly spread layer of peanut butter either, I’m talking about slathering it on like frosting on a cake. Peanut butter, for me, is a comfort food. Some may have a glass of red wine when under duress, I partake with a jar and a spoon. It’s such an addiction, I have gone cold turkey and have refused to buy any from the market for the past two weeks. This is the culprit. Ahhh, even now I am having cravings.


I mean it’s better than eating that hydrogenated garbage but still, 210 calories for 2T! That’s easy haha. Ok, now I’m rambling.

Back to it. For breakfast (before I committed to fasting), I ate a fried egg (75) with a slice of plain low-cal toast (45). I ate this before going to exercise and by lunch I was a might peckish, so for lunch I ate a large stalk of celery (10). I can’t begin to tell you how badly that piece of veg needed peanut butter but I digress. When dinnertime rolled around, I wasn’t all too hungry but I had a meal fit for a king. I had no salad, as is my usual fare, instead I ate 80g of steamed broccoli (24), 200g grilled zucchini (30), 200g butternut squash (80) and 3oz grilled chicken breast (92). I snapped some pics along the way, if you care.

Here is my chicken and zucchini on the grill.


This is how I cook the butternut squash. I peal the squash, cut it into small chunks, place them into a microwavable glass, cover it with film, and cook for 5-10 minutes, depending upon the amount of squash.

Finally, here is my dinner. It consists of only 226 calories, and words can’t describe how delicious it was. Also, I am amazed at how tasty all these veggies are without having a drop of butter upon them.


My entire day was 356 calories.

Thanks for popping by. I hope I’ve inspired some of you to try different foods while on your fast day. I’ll see you again on Tuesday for my weigh in results.
