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.
