Dr Ian Smith Shred Diet – Day 4 – I missed out on the pancakes

Shred Diet Meal Ideas Man, I’m disappointed that I miseed out on the opportunity to have pancakes and bacon during the first week of a diet. Yep, pancakes was on the day 4 Shred Diet menu.  I was too lazy to make them, plus I did not feel like reheating them when I had breakfast around 9.

Day 1 Highlights:

  • Today I stuck closely to the recommend food choices
  • I workout for 45 minutes, and burned around 500 calories
    30 minutes on the stationary  bike, and 15 on the elliptical

Day 4 Shred Diet Menu

Breakfast Meal #1: 9:40
Another late breakfast today, and it was NASTY! I reheated two Egg Whites, and had them  with one slice of 100% Whole Wheat toast, Coffee and a Banana.

The Egg Whites tasted good at the beginning, but soon after I finish, I felt like vomiting. I quickly ate my banana, and finish my coffee but did not feel any better.

I never liked Egg Whites, but I will give them another try, I have fours small boxes that I will not be throwing out. Maybe I felt bad because reheated them.

Snack #1: 12:10PM
1 Kaski Trail Mix Chewy Granola Bar, with a bottle of water

Lunch Meal #2: 1:10PM
Campbell’s 100% natural Healthy Request Chicken with Whole Grain Pasta Soup
Small Salad, with Newman’s Own Lite Honey Mustard Dressing
1 Bottle Water

I did not expect to enjoy the soup, but I did. It was tasty, and filling. I actually had the entire can, which I think was about 200 calories.

Snack #2: 3:20
1 Pack Sensible Portions Portions Veggie Straws

Meal #3: 4:30
I prepared a smoothie using  Jamba All Natural Smoothie Orange Dream Machine, protein  powder, and organe juice,  took it to work and forgot it in the freezer. So I was not able to have my full meal three.

Instead, I had a banana, and 1 Kaski Trail Mix Chewy Granola Bar, with a bottle of water. This did fill me, and I had my smoothie around 6pm on my way to the gym.

Dinner Meal #4: 8:00PM
I was looking forward to this meal all day, I had Chicken Breast seasoned with a Toasted Sesame Ginger rub and cooked with mushroom, and a side of mix vegetables.

I actually had 6 1/4 ounces of chicken, 1 1/4 over the books suggested serving. 🙂

I really changed things up and had a glass of Reduce Fat Milk. I never drink milk with dinner, but I wasn’t too dad.

Overal today was a very good day on the Shred Diet. I feel like I’m getting use to the meal spacing idea.

I would love to hear from you, leave a comment below.  It can be  some words of  encouragement, menu ideas, suggestions, or just to say hello.

    Congratulations on how you’re doing with this whole diet Chris. It takes discipline, especially when you’re not liking some of the foods. 🙂

    I’m curious as I’m still reading thru your posts and haven’t seen yet… Is this a permanent type eating plan or one where you’re getting faster results up front and then adjusting into a lifetime eating plan?

    Good luck with it!!

      Thanks for stopping by Debi. Yes, this is a lifestyle type of diet. It teaches you how to make better food choices with out being on a diet. That is one of the things I like about the Shred Diet. You will lose the weight and keep it off.
