Let me show you my supper last night:
Salad kebab with extra roasted veggies, chilli sauce, vegan mayo, onion rings and chips.
Note to reader – this is not on my usual small tea plate, but instead my gigantic dinner plates!
Okay so I only ate half of the chips and half of the salad kebab (as I was truly stuffed), but I did polish off all of the onion rings (there were 5 but only 4 made it onto the plate as I ate 1 as I plated up!).
This food decision was not related to my fast the day before, instead it was due to hubby being away on business and me fancying a ‘treat’ and not being bothered to cook. However, in theory this should still fit with the principles of 5:2, where you can treat yourself occasionally and still lose weight.
I will have to wait until next week to see if this will have a detrimental effect on my weight, but I thought it would be interesting to show that I am very far from perfect with my weight loss/health efforts and that (perhaps) you can get away with quite a lot on this 5:2 diet.
Wish me luck!
