So my wife and I started on the Fast 800 yesterday. Neither of us are diabetic but I am 4 stone over weight and my wife around 2. Our sons who live with us are now cooking their own meals and we have put their ingredients in a different place to ours. Using the 2 weeks meal plan in the Fast800 book, we purchased all the ingredients for week 1. I also looked on here for the recommended ration of carbs/protein/fat (40/40/30) and put that into My Fitness Pal so I can keep an eye on what I’m doing.
So yesterday I started off with porridge and then I took to work the powder for the strawberry shake (which I have to say was disgusting, so when this runs out I won’t buy another!) Drank spearmint tea or water all day. Missed my mid-morning banana, so had sparkling water instead. So far, so good. My wife also had porridge for breakfast then a salad for lunch.
Come tea time, we were both really hungry but pleased with ourselves that we stuck to the diet! I then cooked the chicken, coconut and lentil curry. Really tasty and we both enjoyed it and thought wow, can cope with this if the main meals are like this. Then put the ingredients into MFP which came up with I was 500 calories over!! I checked I had put all the ingredients in correctly and told my wife and she checked too. We went back to the recipe and the calories should have been 360 per person. Then we realised my mistake….yep, the recipe was for 4 people and we had eaten the whole lot between 2 of us! So cross with myself.
Nevermind, today is a new day and I’m making sure to check how many people the recipe is for!
