ha HA! Take THAT, fat pants!! :D

Amie's Menu
Breakfast: Water
Lunch: Curried Broiled Cod (very quick, easy and delish!)
Snack: 1 piece Melba toast and 1 orange
Dinner: I actually got a little creative with dinner today. We bought lean, thinly-sliced "sandwich steaks" which we cut into 100g portions. I put one portion into a small frying-pan with a little water, a few squirts of Bragg's Aminos and one spoonful of organic minced garlic. I cooked the beef to about med-well, removed it from the pan and left the liquid & extra garlic. I ripped about three leaves of cabbage into strips and cooked them for 5ish minutes, (So I'm not the most precise cook. lol) adding a few shakes of dried basil leaves. I cut the steak into 1-2 cm pieces, piled the cabbage on top and added a small squirt of spicy mustard on the side for dipping and "dressing". It was SO GOOD. I really hope I didn't break any VLCD rules with that one... don't think I did, except that I could have drained the liquid out of the pan before cooking the cabbage. Any thoughts??
Snack: 1 apple and 1 piece Melba toast

We are allowed two pieces of Melba toast per day, right? I wouldn't have eaten that second piece, but I was still pretty hungry after dinner. I think I just needed the psychological satisfaction of eating one more thing, because after I ate the toast and drank down a big glass of water I felt fine. I didn't struggle with hunger much today except near the very end. Wednesdays are our long days at the office, and tonight we had patients still in the office at 8:15 p.m. when I could finally leave.

I'm honestly not sure what Eddie ate today. Coffee and probably a fruit for breakfast. I know it was steak for both lunch and dinner. Maybe not good to have two same proteins in one day, but we don't have any chicken in the house right now and he isn't a big fish fan. I think he ate grilled steak and mixed greens for lunch and grilled steak with tomato for dinner. How's THAT for excitement?! *snort* We'll be dabbling with soups, etc. more later. Maybe this weekend when I have a little time to relaaaax.

That's it for now... Night night!

I just knew you'd have a big loss yesterday! 4.2 overnight. Fabulous! You'll be out of the 170s in no time!

You didn't break any rules. Broth from the same meat you're eating is allowed. As long as the meat is low in fat, you're fine.
